I love helping others find inner healing and am able to do this with the following training. I have a Bachelor of Science in Health and Wellness, from Kaplan University (2016). At Southwest Institute of Healing Arts I received my Hypnotherapy Certificate in 3/2018 and Certified Master (Clinical) Hypnotherapy in 6/2020, with 300 hours of training. I am a member and certified through the National Association of Transpersonal Hypnotherapists (NATH) and International Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy Association (IMDHA). I’m a Circle Member of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies, and Member of The Panther Lodge, Bear Tribe Medicine Society (formerly called Bear Tribe Medicine Society).
I spent sixteen years in the Bradenton/Sarasota area of Florida. Where I was mentored by a few of Sarasota’s prominent spiritual leaders: Rev. Zan Benham, Jo Mooy & Patricia Cockerill. I have been a Reiki Master since 2009, trained by Zan Benham, in the lineage of Diane Stine, author of Essential Reiki. Zan is a card carrying member of the Cherokee Nation, Bear Tribe Medicine Society and has ties to Shamans in Peru and Brazil. She taught me many things from the American Indian and Peruvian spiritual traditions: fire circle ceremonies, sweat lodge, ceremonial drum making, sacred pipe ceremony, journeying and more. My Reiki training was enhanced by attending energy workshops taught by Jo and Patricia: Quantum Touch, Advance Quantum Touch and Sound Workshops are a few they have done. I also volunteered as an energy healer before meditation gatherings with Jo and Patricia.
After I moved back to the Pennsylvania/Maryland/West Virginia area, I received Karuna Reiki training with Sue Edwards, and training with Tuning Forks from Ohm Therapeutics TM with instructor Samantha Jennings. I continue to receive training through the Foundation for Shamanic Studies with Dana Robinson. Workshops I have taken include: Way of the Shaman, Shamanism & Nature Spirits, Shamanism: Dying and Beyond, Extraction Healing Training, Power Soul Retrieval and Dana & Shana Robinson’s Independent Workshop, Possession: White Table Ceremony. I am also a continuing student of Wind Daughter, Medicine Chief of The Bear Tribe Medicine Society, now called The Panther Lodge Bear Tribe Medicine Society.
My own journey of discovery and healing is what inspired my to become a wellness professional. I am a mixture of spiritual beliefs, but heavily follow shamanic practices. I am a Reiki Master, Shamanic Practitioner and Hypnotherapist.
My clients are usually surprised how good they feel after a session with me. This is always true with my energy sessions. This is especially true with Soul Retrievals. They typically do need more than one session with Hypnotherapy. There are usually underlying issues which have to be addressed individually. The success rate is 96% after six sessions.
It is not stage hypnosis. I can only make you do what we agreed upon and it has to go along with your subconscious belief system. This is where my advanced training comes in. I can help you uncover those things that are holding you back. Two opposing beliefs cannot exist, the subconscious belief always wins. These are usually from a child's perspective. They can be released to allow a new more beneficial belief to take it's place. Than the desired behavior can become achieved.
