I help people achieve extraordinary holistic health using energy healing, Shamanic journeys, nature therapy, and therapeutic guidance.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker practicing in the relational and mental health fields for the past 20 years. I have also been practicing the Energy Medicine from the High Andes of Peru for the last ten years, integrating profound energetic healing techniques into my holistic, nature-based therapy practice. I not only offer healing energy sessions, but am also accepting students to join me on the Shaman’s Path. You can begin this journey in the Mesa-Building Program.
I have studied extensively under Karen Duncan, taken classes with Peruvian Shaman & teacher Jose Luis Herrara, and travelled to Peru to learn from direct experience with the medicine people and spirits of the mountains and sacred sites.
I integrate my years of experience as a psychotherapist, retreat leader, and shaman to create life-changing ceremonies and classes.
I discovered the power of Shamanic Energy Work in 2005 when working through a personal trauma. I was a trauma therapist in need of a trauma therapist, and I knew I would be a terrible client. Through a series of divinely guided events, I was connected to the person who would become my teacher and mentor. In one energy healing session I experienced complete relief from the traumatized state I had been stuck in for months. Since that time, I have sought out energy medicine for all of my health concerns...both emotional/mental and physical. I have experienced the healing I offer first hand from my practitioner.
Typically clients are unsure what to expect from a Shamanic Healing session, and find themselves delighted by novel aspects of the experience. If someone comes in for energy healing and they are experiencing distress, they are amazed at how peaceful, energized, and just so much better they feel.
I like offering energy work, because we can avoid some of the brain's defense mechanisms, and process traumatic emotional material much faster than traditional talk therapy. Energy work also addresses imbalances in the field that can lead to diseases, so it is a preventative treatment.
