"Love is the Healer. I AM Love."

I am a member of the Complementary Therapists Accredited Association and the International Association of Therapists, serving others as an Integrative Wellness Professional, Holistic EFT Practitioner and Reiki Master. The field of health and wellness has been my world for over 25 years, working as a teacher, coach, and healer. My work has evolved exponentially, and taken me on many paths- personally, academically, and professionally. My on-ramp to discovering my passion was a hybrid of fitness, nutrition, and creative arts. However, intrigued by self-sabotaging behaviors (my own, as well as noticing the repeating patterns of my clients), back to school I went to earn a Masters Degree in Human Behavior. My focus shifted to energy psychology, and I began to utilize a multi-faceted approach to optimize vitality and well-being. I specialize in numerous holistic healing modalities including Reiki, EFT, Bach Flower Therapy and Therapeutic Art. While I value my education and professional experience, it is undeniable that all the degrees and certifications pale in comparison to my greatest teacher- Life. My own personal healing journey has been the guiding force leading me to explore, study and apply a variety of tools and techniques throughout my career. Since I was a young girl, the conventional medical model failed me repeatedly, but I never lost hope. I believe whole-heartedly that everyone deserves to live their best life. After struggling with grief for years, I dove deep into Shamanism and energy healing. With a profound understanding of the interconnectedness of our mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual bodies, I keep my light shining through my dedication to my own personal development and by helping others rediscover their light.

My Philosophy

I believe that holistically, genuine therapy involves holding space to support and guide clients to access the truth that already resides within themselves. This is empowering, and allows the process of gently releasing the limitations that are preventing them from living life fully. Each journey is ongoing and individualized, and I am eternally grateful to have the opportunity to dedicate my gifts towards helping others.
