I absolutely love my sessions with Iris! After every session I leave feeling relaxed and released. She really helps me deeply connect to my emotional state. I highly recommend trying her programs. She’s extremely insightful to all things mental wellness!
I received an unbelievably wonderful reiki session from Iris last week. I’ve been going through a lot of emotional chaos lately and this session helped IMMENSELY to lighten that emotional load. From the moment Iris set the scene with the relaxing smells and music, it was like being transported to another plane of existence. Iris took her time and really found the areas of my body (and soul) that needed the most attention and healing. I felt very taken care of and confidant in her skills as I meditated through her healing. After the session, she took the time to sit and speak with me about what she felt, where she felt it, and how I could help myself to further improve and heal despite my personal turmoil. She helped add hope back into my self-love language. Iris is incredibly perceptive and empathetic and between those attributes plus her attention to detail, I will ABSOLUTELY be booking another appointment. I HIGHLY suggest Iris’ services to anyone looking for some self love/pampering/healing. She’s the real deal and worth every second.
Highly Recommend...!!! ILM healing is a brand truly committed to their passion. I have had the pleasure of attending events and working with the owner and she is truly amazing. Totally worth your time and $ which I know is something many of us are picky about spending on unfamiliar brands.

Usui Reiki Distance Healing Session
Experience the relaxation that ignites inner healing through this ancient gentle, non-invasive healing practice of traditional Usui Reiki energy work. Developed by Mikao Usui in Japan, Reiki means "universal life energy". The body has an energy field that can be used for healing emotionally, mentally, physically, and spiritually. Reiki involves connecting to energy to balance the chakras and promote healing. During this session, you will be guided into meditation/or a relaxed state while I administer distance energy healing. Most clients report feeling tingling sensations/or heat during a distance healing session. During this distance Usui Reiki energy healing session I will connect to your body's energy field. Post-session we will debrief your specific chakra needs + I will provide feedback + guidance to support your healing.

Yoga Healing Session
60 min personalized virtual yoga healing session, we will utilize yoga to target problem areas in your life and 4 bodies. We will discuss your specific physical, spiritual, mental, and emotional healing needs. I will offer mini-reiki distance healing and provide feedback and intuitive guidance. You will have a deeper understanding of breathwork, yoga, and mindful movement as healing tools and leave with a framework to begin your at-home practice.

About me

I know what it's like to feel stuck spiritually, mentally, emotionally, and physically. I pride myself on being a provider that truly practices what I preach. I am not ashamed to state I know what it's like to be on the receiving end of services as well as the providing end. This is why my clients love to work with me because I show up authentically in each session with every service I provide. I am extensively trained in emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health as a former certified wellness coach and licensed psychotherapist and now--- yoga instructor, Reiki practitioner, and coach.

I take my formal education (Bachelors in Psychology and Master’s in Social Work) and my 10+ years of professional experience to provide an eclectic model of services that truly is guided by the divine and aligns with my clients. I help clients to get back into their divine vessels and energic systems (and out of their heads). Some of my most recent training includes Usui Reiki Levels I and II in addition to mediumship coursework. As a breath, body, and energy coach, I combine all my fund of knowledge both personally and professionally to meet you where you are, provide intuitive SOULution focused coaching, alignment in breath + body through yoga and mindfulness, AND use my intuitive and spiritual gifts as a guide.
In my spare time I love to connect to the elements, be with nature, hike, dance, yoga, travel, and spend time with friends and family.

My Philosophy of Care

My philosophy of care is to meet the client where they are.
I use an eclectic style to truly align with my client based on their specific current needs including:
SOULution-Focused Coaching
Intuitive + Spiritual Guidance and Messaging
Yoga + Mindful Movement
Somatic Work + Breathwork
Usui Reiki Energy Healing + Chakra Balancing
Element Work + Nature Healing Guidance
Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) Tapping
Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction

What You Can Expect On Your First Visit

During the first session, we formulate a plan based on your current needs. I start by building rapport with clients and setting SMART goals within the first session as it relates to spiritual, mental, emotional, and physical health. I meet my clients where they are in that I offer various intuitive modalities in sessions based on your needs: whether that's mindful movement, guided mindfulness, deep breathing, tapping, intuitive guidance, distance reiki energy, or SOULution focused coaching.

My Inspiration

I understand that wellness + healing is a journey, not a destination. I not only have the education and credentials but also the personal experience of being able to navigate healing in the 4 bodies (mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual). Being a healer is a path guided by ancestors and the divine. It is my purposed path to share the knowledge, gifts, and help others heal. That's why I do what I do. In short, I was meant to.

I am so grateful for Iris!! She is absolutely awesome. We had a consultation call, where she shared an abundance of resources to help me on my journey. She went above and beyond. I highly recommend booking an appointment with her, it will bring you clarity wherever you need it!
Iris is amazing. Her tone is so soft and soothing and I can listen to her all day. Her podcast is the perfect show to listen to to calm you down. She is so nice and friendly and professional. I have also done yoga with her and loved it and I am not a yoga person at all :) I am actually going to be doing couples yoga with her and i'm so excited! Her rates are affordable and she even sent me some wellness products that I really enjoy ;) Everything she stands for is amazing. You will not be disappointed.
Iris is a woman of many talents. I am so very grateful for her because her Yoga classes are the best I've ever taken and the things I've learned have helped my body a lot. She cares and explains to us why we do what we do. I've worked with Iris on a few different areas of my life but most recently, I took her Creating Calm course, to help me stay present and mindful, even in the face of anxiety and depression. Her program helped me to take a step back and breathe throughout the day while I continue to realign with my goals. Through this program, I was able to realize what was causing my anxiety and use the tools she provided to move past it. I truly recommend working with Iris; she has built a truly mindful practice with the simple yet loving intention of helping others thrive. <3
I had my first reiki session with Iris and she was so amazing. I enjoyed the experience so much that I immediately signed up for a class to learn about level one reiki. I went into the session with no expectations because I didn’t want to set myself up, but I could literally feel the areas she was working on. During our debrief she was accurately able to describe the areas in my life/body/spiritually that needed attention, and I really connected to the information she was giving me. Iris continued to check in on me the following days because of how intense the process can be, and I think that shows just how dedicated she is to the people she is serving.
This was my first time ever doing yoga! And as a 39 year old man, it was great! I feel so relaxed and at peace. Iris is a great teacher, I will be back again!
Iris was absolutely amazing! I had a reiki session and have also been using her Mantra cards to help create a more positive, peaceful environment for myself and my son. She has been so helpful with explaining everything and how to best reap the benefits from reiki and use of the cards! I will definitely be going back for more services and if you haven’t registered for one yet, I highly suggest you do!!! Thank you, Iris!!
My daughter took her class after expressing interest in Yoga from an event at school. Iris' teaching was very educational, and patient. She was confident so my 12 y/o felt comfortable with her as well as the teachings. She loves the class. She was able to give the class the instruction while also providing individual attention when needed, and did it with compassion. I'll definitely be sending her back to the class whenever she wants to go. It's also very affordable. I think I may be attending myself next time, as well.
Today’s experience was suitable for anyone beginner and of any age. This was my first experience doing yoga virtually and I must say it was great. I was in my own comfort zone, not worried if anyone seen me messing up and most importantly the vibe/energy Iris gives you is super soothing. I look forward to doing more so I can get better ❤️😁
I took a yoga/meditation class with Iris and highly recommend! I’ve never felt so energized and relaxed at the same time. The class truly made me feel good physically and emotionally. Iris is a true healer and I look forward to attending more sessions with her!
This was my first yoga class and I did not know what to expect as it was a virtual class. Iris has an energy that exudes calmness and comfortability. She lead the class at a great pace for everyone. She spoke with a sense of patience and love, that made me feel like I was doing a pose correctly even if I wasn’t. I would 100% recommend for anyone from those like me who wanted to try something new in Quarantine to those whom has been practicing yoga for years.
Overall great experience! As a beginner I did not know much about yoga . But we went over traditional techniques and the benefits of it all. Great exercise but also relaxing . Would not hesitate to do this again . Amazing instructor !
Iris is a wonderful teacher who really understands mindfulness, the art of yoga and the way it transforms your mind, body and spirit. I would recommend her services to anyone who is struggling with spirituality or anyone in general. Her programs are fantastic!
Looking for an amazing yoga experience whether beginner, pro, all levels then Iris is the instructor for you! Always enjoy her classes!
Great experience. Value time and amazing yoga class! Will back for sure! ❤️
ILM Healing Solutions offers amazing peer and consultation services!! She is flexible, depending, and authentic ❤️
My first experience with Iris was with our phone consult. During our talk, I felt like she was really caring and completely understood where I was coming from and the current obstacles I’m facing. She gets it 100% and nailed a lot of things on the head. She explained everything thoroughly about the services she provides and the next steps to proceed with further coaching. I’m glad I found her and we connected. I’m ready to start the healing process and excited. I’m looking forward to working with her.
Iris is a kind hearted person who is very attuned to the people she serves. She provides intuitive insight and feedback which forces you to explore yourself in ways that you did not know was possible. She is eclectic in her approach as she allows spirit to guide her with how to support her. She has supported me for a number of years. She is a constant entity within my healing team. I am appreciative to have her and I highly recommend her services.
Iris is a wonderful teacher. I feel relaxed and centered after our time together. I would highly recommend her to anyone!
Iris is a wonderful coach that listens with attention and speaks with intention. She has helped me create goals and plans to reach them. She provides holistic services and makes excellent recommendations. I have been seeing her for 6 months and I am very happy about it.
