How I approach working with clients may be fairly unique. I am a trained scientist and engineer. I am a veteran, having served as a United States Naval Officer for over six years. I am also a trained Shaman and Reiki Master/Teacher. This dual background allows for a unique perspective.
I have a Ph.D. in Earth and Planetary Sciences from Washington University. I also have a Master's of Arts in Teaching Math and Science from Washington University. My undergraduate degree is a B.S. in Engineering Physics with a minor in mathematics from Embry Riddle Aeronautical University.
While studying for my Doctorate, I worked with a Lakota shaman for three years. I have a full year-and-a-day training as a Wiccan. While in the Navy, I worked as a Lay Chaplain for the Naval Consolidated Brig.
In addition to working with the Lakota shaman, I have also studied with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and completed training as Shamanic Reiki Master. Realizing that many clients were struggling with their nutritional balance, I completed training as a Health and Nutrition Coach with the Institute for Integrative Nutrition.
After teaching nuclear physics for the Navy I couldn't just stop teaching, so I currently continue to tutor math and science, after previously teaching high school math and science locally for eight years. I fully believe in our spirit and in a divine source, but I am not a follower of conspiracy theories. I follow the science and my Spirit Guides.
When I work with energy in your body, it’s not just some vague concept for me. I actually understand the biophysics of Reiki. When I do Past Life Retrievals or Soul Retrievals, I carefully consider the quantum dimensions of the work. When we do meditation together, and I ask you to enter the quantum field, I’m asking you to become a creator of your world from the perspective of the underlying principles of the Universe. I practice "Lauraism" and I want to help you find your -ism for yourself.
On a first visit, we'll talk a little about what is currently happening in your life, and we'll talk about some of your past. I may bounce around topics a bit as my Guides help me form a more complete picture of who you are and what would work best for you.
We'll also get some "real" work done in that session. Whether you need a Soul Retrieval, are there for a Past Life Retrieval, or are just needing a good Shamanic Healing session, we'll get to the heart and begin your journey forward.
I've always felt and seen things that others didn't seem to be able to experience. By the age of four, I stopped talking about it because people looked at me strangely. When I was 16, I would burst into tears for no reason, but the odd thing, if I turned a particular direction they'd stop or get worse. It was like a homing beacon. The summer I was 20 I read books by Mercedes Lackey. She seemed to know what the heck I was going through. If someone's hurting, I need to help. It's what I do.
