My work has emerged from 20 years of workshops, thousands of hours of certified training, spiritual initiations, direct experience, & deep personal work. I have been employed in the healing arts for over 18 years and have administered over 10,000 sessions. I’ve helped many people in their personal healing and spiritual journeys. I specialize in assisting empaths to manage energy, highly sensitive people, awakening intuitive and spiritual gifts, moving stuck energy, empowering personal growth, creating insight, stepping into purpose, shifting patterns, rapidly clearing energy, conscious evolution, grounding spiritual energy into the body, walking a balanced path of awakening, opening creativity, integration of energy, balancing and clearing chakras. I work with the 4 body system ~ physical, emotional, energy, and mental. The soul. The Chakra system. Cosmic Energy. The Higher Self, Guides, Inner Guidance, and the Heart.
The sessions range from basic Intuitive Bodywork with energetic healing & clearing as the foundation, to an intuitive reading that assists with your spiritual awakening. I consciously work with multiple energy streams for healing and clearing energy. This energy facilitates healing and can accelerate your spiritual opening. I am a catalyst that stimulates change in the consciousness as well as the energy field. I am highly empathic ~ this means I feel emotions, energies, & words that are stored in all your bodies (emotional, mental, physical, energetic), and I help clear them out. I also use my psychic abilities to locate what is out of alignment and bring it into balance.
I meet you where you are and we move in an organic way that honors your unique rhythm of healing. You may come to a session with intentions of what you want the focus to be, I can read your energy and create a session, or I can do a combination of both.
My bio is my development of skills through extensive training. The journey of an awakened healer is another story. There is deep personal transformation and growth that comes with this path, the most powerful from direct experience. That can’t be taught. However, the wisdom can be shared.
I was born into a family with a tremendous amount of pain and dysfunction. I had several nervous breakdowns between the ages of 23 – 25. Some spiritual teachings suggest a nervous breakdown is similar to a spiritual awakening, or a breakthrough. A time of rapid release of old pain and conditions. During this, I went to a Doctor who suggested I take more iron. My soul was screaming for help and that was the remedy offered?! That inspired a decision to leave the midwest. I free spirited my way from Iowa to Boulder to Denver to Seattle. I had a tremendous amount of courage, a strong spirit, and nothing to lose at that point.
Five years later, while living in Seattle, I entered a dark night of the Soul. I was in an intense cycle of depression that lasted 2 years. A psychologist told me I was too depressed to help, plus I was on medication that made me feel crazier than the depression. During that time I met an astrologer who told me I would be healing with my hands, communicating about transformation; I was a healer and I healed with light. I had no idea how that was me, or how I would even get from where I was to what was written in the stars. I did know this lady spoke truth that I felt deep in my soul. I began to study herbs and found blends that helped ease the darkness. I painted, I journaled, I explored art as a healing tool. I pulled myself up and out and started a career in energy medicine and healing. I came out the other side ~ transformation. The phoenix rising. Death and rebirth. Things I know.
I started with massage school. Then met my first spiritual teacher. I graduated from Massage school in 1996, became a Reiki Master, and started teaching Reiki with a passion. This initiated powerful transformation in all areas of my life.
My path of personal healing is also a path of spiritual awakening. As I began my journey of shedding my layers, healing my pain, transforming my soul ~ I was led to many who became my teachers and mentors.
In the last 20 years, I have studied earth magic, plant magic, honoring the moon, and cycles of nature. I mentored with a 5th generation female shaman from Siberia. I learned about honoring the spirit world. I studied with a beautiful soul who taught me Reiki, working with guides, meditation, channeling, and psychic healing. She gave me a strong base in energy medicine. I’ve had many teachers who taught ways to heal the body, soul, and spirit. They reminded me of my power and light. They helped me awaken my spiritual energy and develop myself as a conduit for energy.
I am an old soul. I chose to remember and awaken so I could help others do the same. I shine bright and remind others of the light they carry. As I stand in my purpose, I invite purpose for others. I express divine energy through my art, oils, voice, hands, and heart. As I walked this path, I had to learn to listen to the voice of my soul, it is the voice that was always speaking the loudest, always nudging me to understand truth, the spirit, the soul, awakening, depth, heart, light and shadow.
My soul remembers many lifetimes; as a priestess, oracle, shaman, herbalist, medicine woman, faith healer, prophet, seer, & healer. I remember working in the oil rooms in the temples of Egypt, working with divine feminine energy, shakti, & mystery schools. I am here, again, to work with the healing arts and beauty. Essential oils, energy, wisdom, healing, soul expression, and cosmic energy ~ to take the ancient and weave it into our modern world. To bring about deep transformation and change.
I resonate with the Star card in the Tarot. This card represents Isis ~ known as the “way Shower” guiding us out of the darkness of unconsciousness and into enlightenment of our soul. The Star is about the reclaiming of the Self in a deep authentic way. This is my path, this is what I know. Isis is one of my guides. My favorite place to sit is in the depth of her wise and beautiful soul.
Part of my path has been traveling to sacred sites and utilizing that energy for spiritual growth, healing, and expansion. I have made over 30 spiritual pilgrimages to Mount Shasta, Hawaii, Mount Adams, and Sedona over the last 5 years. In addition, I experienced a spontaneous kundalini awakening 4 years ago. This was another very rapid transformation and spiritual awakening. My direct experience with this energy lasted 17 months. It awakens and shifts a tremendous amount of energy through the body and energy channels. Not exactly an easy thing to navigate. From this experience, I learned useful ways to balance, manage, and work with this powerful energy. I can assist anyone who is having difficulty from kundalini energy. The true activation of this energy is no joke. I have compassion for all who have had the truth of this experience. If you need assistance, come see me. I know directly about the awakening process. I have walked it, and brought it into grounded wisdom.
Through all this, I have learned to shift dense energy into usable light. I understand the transformational process deeply in my self. I have overcome much in my own personal healing journey and offer a deep level of authenticity and care for you and your soul. I am a strong conduit for divine light. I value keeping myself clear and grounded. I am always moving toward a higher state of evolution in my personal life, Self, and soul. I share what I know from all my experiences, and I truly love what I do!
