Shamanic Practitioner & Reiki Master
I am a Shamanic Practitioner, Reiki Master and Life Coach who facilitates healing and guides clients to expand and support that healing.
Training with a variety of well-respected teachers in the shamanic world, most of my formal education was received from The Foundation for Shamanic Studies, founded by Michael Harner. I have also completed depossession trainings with Betsy Bergstrom, the practitioner who coined the term “compassionate depossession.” My dream of attending the 2-year teacher training with Sandra Ingerman was realized in 2015/16. Shamanism is an evolving practice based on a strong, ethical foundation of training and experience. I’m a good listener and have learned to get out of my own way so that the healing, wisdom and guidance coming from my compassionate guides flows freely. Planting only seeds of positive assistance helps my clients move forward to achieve their goals in their personal, as well as, professional lives. While I state I began my practice in 1960 because that’s the year I was born, if the format of this site allowed, I would say I have been practicing for many lifetimes! I have always loved being outside in nature and living near water. As a child I was quite introspective and quiet, choosing to walk to my special spot on a rock beside a stream in the woods of Central Pennsylvania. There, I meditated, wrote poetry, and sang the songs of my heart while knowing I was always protected and guided by the unseen.
Since then, I have moved around, landing in Florida. I have raised a family, supported my husband and son to fulfill their dreams and earned a B.A. from the College of Fine Arts at the University of South Florida. Once my husband retired and my son flew the coop in 2005, I asked myself, “What now?” Enter Tessio, my beloved blue-point Siamese cat, who seemed to always have had one ailment or another. I was sitting at the vet’s office when something on the cover of Cat Fancy caught my eye. Something about Reiki, which I had never heard of. I read the article and was intrigued, and so my journey took a turn that brought me to a path I was always walking near but finally had the clearance to pursue. I was ready and the people, teachers, opportunities and experiences came my way. I went to Michigan to train with William Lee Rand, founder of The International Center for Reiki Training. Somewhere in between Reiki and Shamanism, I went to Chicago and developed my intuition with Sonia Choquette, a well-respected teacher and author. I learned how to meditate and began holding guided meditations in my home and other locations. Stressing the importance of grounding, balancing, and breathing is my focus. My husband, the left-brained part of my marriage, mentioned a Life Coaching course might be a good idea. So, as a result of all of this training and experience, it all came together to create an interesting, cohesive practice that helps people with whatever is going on in their lives at any given time. It is my desire to teach people how to care for and heal themselves with tools that are readily available to them. We are spirits who have chosen to have a human experience. We are here to learn and to grow, knowing when one challenge is conquered, another is on its heels. It’s like going to school. You don’t want to stay in second grade forever, do you? It is my great pleasure and honor to help with those challenges.
Why would you want to book an appointment with me? Well, are you feeling stuck? Do you find yourself saying, “I haven’t been the same since ....”? Are you wondering why you are on this planet at this time? Are you having difficulty focusing or going inward, trusting your intuition? Are you experiencing pain and discomfort? Do you feel lost or wonder what’s next for you? Would you like to have your work or home space energetically cleared? Have you suffered a trauma you just can’t seem to get past? These are examples of why clients are guided to book an appointment with me. Welcome! I realize I might be the “last stop” for you, and that’s ok. I am honored you have chosen to consider using my services. My methods for each client are tailored with a holistic approach in mind. Twists and turns in my own life have driven me to seek my divine purpose. It is my sincere wish to use my life experience, training and, mostly, the many compassionate spirit helpers, to aid those who are struggling, those who are looking for positive change and are ready to take the necessary steps to define or return to their path. Shamanism is my way of life; my own daily practice of meditation and regular shamanic journeys keep me grounded and strengthen my abilities so I am able to be in the best position to help others.

My chronically ill cat inspired me to search for alternative ways of healing. Reiki led to intuition development, which then led to shamanism and life coaching. In whatever way illness manifests, all of these forms of healing lend themselves to addressing the body, mind and spirit. Helping others fulfills my sense of purpose.
Clients often say they feel relaxed and empowered, feeling a renewed sense of clarity and direction. They also say they feel physical relief, as well as emotional release.

We know that the mind, body and spirit are connected. Shamanism is an ancient, nature-based practice and one of the original forms of counseling and healing for the individual, the group and the earth. It addresses the spiritual aspect of illness. Both Shamanic practices and Reiki are used to channel energy in order to clear and balance, awakening the body’s own natural abilities to heal itself. They also provide insight and guidance for further healing. Shamanism and Reiki often complement one another quite naturally and effectively.
