I began my own healing journey in 2018 after learning that I had an autoimmune disease that had made me ill since childhood. I wandered into the world of spirituality through my personal journey into using holistic and alternative medicine to heal myself.
I received my first Reiki session in January 2019 and quickly became certified in both Level 1 and Level 2. I further expanded my Reiki practice by becoming a Master/Teacher in Spring, 2020 (during the beginning of the global pandemic)! I have always said that Reiki is the gateway into all things spirituality. It was the jumping point that opened me up to my gift as an intuitive healer.
I have done a lot of deep shadow work and processed a lot of inner childhood trauma. I have connected with my Higher Self (and she's pretty amazing) and seen the vision that She has for me in this lifetime. I am living each day authentically and with a strong drive to help our community heal.
Part of my healing journey led me to my first trauma release retreat in September 2022. At The Healing Circle of Fire Retreat, I was exposed to an amazing modality known as Transpersonal & Trauma Healing Hypnotherapy. That retreat quite literally changed my life! I remember speaking with my husband on the drive home and letting him know that I am different in ALL ways - physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. I was able to expand on that trauma work by adding a few Shamanic & Earth Medicine healing sessions and get myself into remission of my 4 autoimmune diseases in early 2023.
I am so passionate about helping people get to the root cause of their problems, helping them heal their inner child and clearing the traumas that are holding us all back from reaching our highest best and highest good.
