It is such an honor to have you here with me! I am beyond grateful that you have taken the time to see what I offer and how I can serve you the most. I love spiritual wellness and those who seek healing just like yourself, who value and appreciate depth and are willing to explore deep healing modalities.
While I have been a healer and intuitive my entire life, I have been through many "initiations" that have brought me to where I am today and empowered me to step into my fullest self. I thought I would share a bit of my story so you know that I am YOU. I have been through many things and have gained so much insight into healing, wellness, and spiritual wellbeing. Here is a part of my story that you may be able to relate to!
Back in 2003, a week before my 25th birthday, I was at the lowest point of my life. I was lost, extremely depressed, and very uncertain about who I was and why I was put on this Earth. This was my dark night of the soul and my spiritual awakening. I remember praying in a jail cell, where I was being held after drinking heavily and driving. I was later charged with a DUI. This actually saved my life and was a huge wake up call/spiritual awakening. I prayed to my higher power, after I had lost my connection with my higher self for a long time, that I would do anything to change my life. And the spirits heard me that night! My life has not been the same ever since. It was my initiation into my healing gifts.
From that point on, my intuitive gifts sky rocketed and I was blown apart. The life I had known was no longer and I was sent forth to completely start over with the help of my spirits, angels, teachers, and mentor's. I was forever changed and have been on my healing journey ever since.
Many years later, in 2015, after years of gradually feeling sick and extremely depressed, I was diagnosed with lyme disease. Another initiation and opportunity to deepen my personal healing and gather more tools to heal my body and soul. It was extremely apparent to me that this was about loving my Self and working on my shadows. The dialogue I continually had running through my mind was so self deprecating that it literally made me sick. Once again, I was met with a dark night. And once again, luckily, I found the light.
All of the right teachers have shown up for me and I have been blessed, but man it is ALOT of work! And so completely worth it to show up, be present, and do the work that we are called to do! And we cannot do it alone because HEALING IS A LIFELONG JOURNEY.
Most of the work I have studied, outside of therapeutic bodywork, has been shamanic healing and earth based medicine. My approach to healing is psycho-somatic in nature. I have studied mind-body healing and weave together the many modalities I have studied over the past 20 years. My coaching experience comes from my own life experiences and the teachers and mentors I have worked with along the way. We teach what we know and what we learn. I am grateful to lift others up and empower those who are need!
