Growing up, I would often receive intuitive and energetic information about the people around me, as well as having “supernatural” experiences in my teens and early 20’s that I could not explain.

I had always felt drawn to spirituality, mysticism, and ultimately shamanism.  The first shaman I worked and trained with, an “Appalachian Seer” named John Crawford, taught me how to use my abilities to begin healing deep wounds from my very traumatic childhood. He supported me in recognizing that my abilities and sensitivities were not a curse, but powerful gifts that could be of support to others.

Seeking to understand my personal wounds and the wounds of the collective, I delved extensively into studies around a deeper connection with nature, spiritual philosophies, different religions, connecting with spirit guides and animal totems, stalking my power, shapeshifting, cloaking and invisibility, energetic and psychic protection and more.

My love for healing and excavating our deepest shadow places continued to grow and expand as I sat at the feet of Native American elders, Peruvian Curanderos and Paqos, Maestro Ayahuasceros, Buddhist monks and nuns, and Hindu Swamis.  My further studies have ranged from Reiki and meditation, to Ayurveda and herbalism. I am a certified Reiki Master Teacher, a 200 hour certified yoga instructor, and a certified Breathwork Facilitator with 450 hours of training in this modality.

Since 1999 my focus has remained empowering others to heal. Through individual shamanic healing sessions, group plant medicine ceremonies, and online offerings, I have continued to offer medicine work to support my immediate community, and extended community throughout the world.

I love supporting others to more fully embody the most expansive version of yourself, connecting with your Soul’s mission and living your purpose.  This is my passion, helping you re-member who you truly are and living into your most expansive, whole, healed and joyful Self.

This is a powerful time on our beloved Mother Earth, and it is vital to live in sacred reciprocity with this planet and with each other, to create the life and world of our dreams. Now is the time to fully embody your gifts and I am here to be of service and support on your journey.
