Teresa is a licensed clinical social worker, earning BSW in 1990 from Illinois State University and MSW in 1992 from the University of Illinois, specializing in mental health. In 2018, Teresa was certified in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). She has found profound healing for grievers with this process and has expanded practice to the spiritual modality Loving Heart Connections® (LHC) training with Dr. Jane Bissler in 2022.

Over the last 25 years Teresa has worked in the healthcare setting, primarily in the hospice setting providing care to chronic, terminally ill, patients and their families. Focusing on a strength-based, client-centered approach, and supporting patients and families with exploring and creating coping strategies, meeting end of life goals, and relationship reconciliation.

Teresa has also served as bereavement coordinator offering many strategies for grief work. She has had the privilege to witness the sacred and spiritual journey of death and dying, including the ongoing connections and the synchronicity that grievers experience.

Loving Heart Connections session empowers the participant to connect with their deceased loved ones, spirit guide and /or their higher selves that can promote profound healing. In addition, the participants will have the confidence and understanding of technique to continue their spiritual journey.

Elizabeth is an experienced higher education instructor in Psychology/ Mathematics of more than 14 years. However, she has been interested in the world of spirit ever since as a young child she played with “imaginary friends.” As an adult, she became a practicing medium through formal and informal training. In 2021, she retired from teaching in academia to focus on what she loves most: studying, writing, and teaching about after death communications (ADCs). During that same year she was blessed with the opportunity to connect with Dr. Jane Bissler, the creator of the powerful new modality called Loving Heart Connections® (LHC). Under Dr. Bissler’s tutelage, “Dr. Liz” personally experienced, studied and practiced how to facilitate LHC™ sessions. Thus, she developed a deep appreciation of LHC’s profound healing affects in empowering individuals to connect on their own with deceased loved ones, spirit guides and/or their higher selves. In this way, the old adage still rings true “If you give someone a fish, you feed them one day. If you teach someone to fish, you feed them for life”.

Katherine Walter, MSW/LCSW

I am a Medical Social Worker and Licensed Clinical Social Worker in California (LCS#27189). For the past 18 years I have worked in hospice and Palliative Care to bring caring presence and skilled accompaniment to individuals and families facing life threatening illness and death.

As a compliment to my institutional work, I am trained in Loving Heart Connections®, a modality developed by Dr. Jane Bissler that uses bilateral stimulation via eye movement, tapping, and sound (such as is used in EMDR) to help participants achieve non-ordinary states of consciousness that enable a person’s own inner healing intelligence to provide several types of experiences:

-connection or communication with deceased loved ones, which can alleviate some of the burdens of intractable grief.

-receiving guidance from higher self or Spirit.

-conscious re-visiting of the self at different ages with compassion, forgiveness and support, thereby updating limiting beliefs about the self to new, healthier narratives.

I am also a student of interpersonal neurobiology to better follow and respond to clients in the evolving moment.

Whether or not you are someone who believes in after death communications, Spirit or Higher Power, participants uniformly report the experience of LHC® to be positive and helpful.

In addition, once you have experienced an LHC® session, you will have this new tool to use on your own as often as you wish.

If you are in California and would like to schedule a Loving Heart Connections® session, you may reach me at the above email address (please put LHC in the subject line) or feel free to call me at the above listed number.



Diana Herweck, PsyD, LMFT, LPCC, NCC, ACS

502-617-DRDI

Dr. Herweck has more than 30 years of experience in the fields of clinical psychology and counseling. Although her experience in these 30+ years is vast and varied, her current work focuses on counselor education and supervision as well as providing grief and loss counseling and support via groups and individual sessions.

Following her own significant losses, Dr. Herweck was drawn to studying what happens beyond the life we all know in the physical world. Like other practitioners, she experienced her first Loving Heart Connections® (LHC™) with Dr. Bissler, and she was hooked. She continues to practice this modality herself and has shared it with many others who have experienced a loss and are looking for their own connections.

LHC™ is not therapy or counseling, although there can certainly be therapeutic benefits. Dr. Herweck offers Loving Heart Connections© as an additional support, separate from the counseling services she provides. As it is not counseling, she can offer this service to those desiring the experience in any location. While she is available to meet in person, these Loving Heart Connections© can be made virtually as well. The intention with these Connections is for you to meet with a practitioner once for guidance and support, and then to be able to practice the Connections on your own. Additional support, of course, is always available as needed. In addition to LHC™, Dr. Herweck is a Level II Reiki practitioner, working on her Master certification. She is also available to provide her clinical services to those in California.

If you’d like to schedule a Loving Hearts Connections© session with Dr. Herweck, you can reach her at soulconnectionswithdrdi@gmail.com or via phone at 502-617-DRDI.

I have spent my career supporting those in grief. For twenty of my professional career years, I worked as an oncology nurse, caring for cancer patients as well as meeting the patient’s and family’s emotional needs. A Hawaiian term, talking story, was a way in which they could put the pieces together in order to understand their journey and find meaning. To be present at a deeper level, I pursued a master’s in counseling. For the last 18 years, I have held the position of bereavement coordinator for a nonprofit hospice. Always searching for healing modalities, I got my certification in EMDR in 2018, which uses bilateral stimulation; this is in part the basis for Loving Heart Connections. As a grief counselor, honoring story remained a central part of my support. Rachel Naomi Remen tells us “Our stories are our sacred connection between heaven and earth.” I honor this belief and feel that Loving Heart Connections is a way to honor this too. What is your story with your loved one? Or with your spirit guides? Your story continues on the other side. Being able to take Dr. Jane Bissler’s class and support participants in this beautiful process has created a new way to continue healing support, in a very spiritual way, for those that are grieving and or seeking. Please contact me so that I can support your story. As a story listener, I am called to witness suffering; I am also called to witness healing.

If you would like to schedule a Loving Hearts Connections© please contact me by using the above email or phone number. Thank you.
