Can you tell us about your journey into the world of holistic healing and what inspired you to continue this path professionally?
Many years ago, I attended a metaphysical fair and had a Reiki session performed on me and was amazed at how it felt. Around 15 years ago, I also had another Reiki session performed by a friend who also happened to be a Master Teacher. Having had abilities all my life, I decided to take one of her classes and ended up taking all of them and becoming a Reiki Master Teacher myself.
When I was in my twenties and was following a Pagan/Wiccan religion, I started doing Shamanic journeys long before I really knew much about them. A number of years ago I took a course from don Oscar Miro-Quesada on Shamanism and while very impressed, I was eventually lead to Shaman Sandra Ingerman and have since taken several courses on Shamanism from her and found myself very satisfied in leading a Shamanic lifestyle.
Before I found myself studying Reiki, I was always balancing and cleansing my Chakra system and came across a course on Chakra Sound Therapy. Using the tuning forks on myself, I was amazed at what a difference they made in my Chakra system, so I started in my basement at the time, doing Chakra cleansing and balancing for friends and a few clients. When I opened up my first studio, I invested in a new set of tuning forks that are aligned with the vibrational frequency of each Chakra and this has turned out to be one of the most popular modalities I currently have.
How do you combine different modalities such as Shamanic practices, Reiki, and Chakra Sound Therapy in your healing sessions, and what benefits do your clients experience from this integrated approach?
After studying the different modalities, using them on myself and finding the successes I had on my own body, mind and spirit, I chose to incorporate them into my current offerings. I have found that my clients like a variety of different modalities to experience. The different modalities I offer seem to compliment one another and have only heightened my abilities as a holistic healer. While they are all different sessions that I offer, there are times when a higher power urges me to incorporate more than one modality in a healing session. I always do what is best for my client and their highest healing.
Could you tell us more about the courses you offer on Positive Energy, Meditation, and Earthing? What can participants expect to learn and experience in these courses?
The Power of Positive Energy was birthed from a need that many clients have, especially empaths, to learn how to live in the most positive light there is. This course was designed to give the student a “Positive Energy Arsenal” to help remove negative energy from one’s life and dive deep into embracing positive energy. This allows anyone who faces or is affected by negative energy to release it and live a life full of positive energy instead which helps to clear their auras and move them forward in their lives.
My Practices of Meditation and Earthing Course is a need that many clients have to approach a more holistic lifestyle and further healing on their own. Meditation alone is critical for anyone who wants a more centered and peaceful way of being. In this course I teach different styles of meditation, history on meditation, what meditation can do for each person, meditation guidelines and starting a practice on their own. The biggest take-away is learning how to create sacred space in your mind as well as your home.
Once I discovered how powerful Earthing was, I decided to incorporate it into my meditation course as they blend so beautifully together. Earthing represents a health breakthrough, an effortless lifestyle add-on with surprising, and often dramatic, healing results. As simple as it may be, beneath your feet lies a most marvelous gift from Nature − the very Earth itself, naturally equipped with extraordinary healing power that may just be the single-most effective medicine available. Earthing connects you to this overlooked natural energy that nurtures and balances your body at the deepest levels, draining it of inflammation, pain, stress, and fatigue, so incorporating this practice along with meditation is in itself was a no brainer!
The concept of the Chakra System is fascinating. Could you explain how imbalances in the Chakras can affect the mind, body, and spirit, and how you help your clients bring their Chakras into balance?
By focusing on the seven major chakras, chakra balancing and cleansing is an energy healing concept that is crucial to maintaining great health, physically, mentally, and spiritually. Chakra healing is important for removing the negative energy from our bodies, minds and spirits. It transforms our weaknesses into our strengths and enriches our intuition as well. It is a great way to improve our overall well-being in addition to achieving our goals and objectives. The four lower chakras are considered the physical chakras while the higher three are considered to be the spiritual chakras.
As we grow from tiny children to adults each energy center starting at the root opens and begins to form. As adults if we have a chakra that is blocked or over-functioning, it can throw off the chakras near it and diminish the flow of energy throughout our bodies causing all sorts of issues.
These unbalanced energies in the chakras can eventually lead to disease in our bodies. Each chakra governs different organs and systems throughout our bodies. So, as you can see, keeping these energy centers open and functioning properly is vastly important to our overall health and well-being as much as it is to the foods that we eat to nourish our body and soul.

Root, Sacral, Solar Plexus, Heart, Throat, Third Eye and Crown.
As a practitioner, how do you continue to expand your knowledge and expertise in the field of holistic healing, and how does this ongoing learning benefit your clients?
I started my journey over 19 years ago as I learned about the Chakra System and how it affected the body if it was out of balance. Intrigued with this new information and insight, I began taking classes and learning more about the art of holistic healing. My own personal experiences have allowed me to support my community by giving them a healthy approach in which to heal and grow. As I work with clients, it enables me to grow more deeply which allows my clients to grow and experience abundant health and well-being.
I continue to move forward as a student increasing my knowledge base. This enables me to offer more amazing experiences of optimal holistic health to my clients, allowing them to grow and emit their own beautiful light. A couple of years ago I became certified as a Holistic Life Coach, and I am currently enrolled as a student and learning how to utilize the Emotion Code for my clients as another healing modality. By staying abreast of the newest and most powerful healing techniques, it allows me to guide my clients to the highest level of healing possible!
