Dr. Thomas is a board-certified optometrist experienced in vision development and rehabilitation. She is an international speaker who helps to further the art and science of therapeutic lenses, syntonic phototherapy and vision therapy.

Born in North Dakota, Dr. Thomas joined the U.S. Army when she was 17. She suffered from vision problems growing up, but was not aware of how those problems were affecting her until she learned about them in optometry school. It was during her studies at Pacific University College of Optometry that Dr. Thomas discovered vision therapy. She noticed that a lot of the patients that went through vision therapy read, studied and interacted with the world just like her - this discovery prompted her to use vision therapy on herself to improve her skills.

Resonate with Healing

Zabriskie earned her registered nursing license at the age of 21 in her birth country of Sweden. Soon after, she left for Saudi Arabia to work and travel. After spending 15 years there, she relocated to Tucson, Arizona in 2003 where she worked at Banner – University Medical Center Tucson caring for premature babies in the NICU, and later managing labor and delivery/mother-baby units.

On her path to finding a way of healing the body, mind and soul, she has pursued training in Structural Energetic Therapy, Cranio Sacral Therapy, Reiki and the practice of Tai Chi Chuan. Zabriskie completed her certification in Integrative Health Coaching at the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine in 2016 which led to creating her own practice – Resonate with Healing.
