Let me introduce myself...
As long as I can remember, I have always been highly sensitive to people and the environment around me. I remember when I was a teenager searching the internet trying to find some answers and meaning, as to why I felt so different. It wasn't until I was in my early 20's that I realized that I am an empath. This explained why I easily get overwhelmed in crowds, my need to spend time alone after being around people, how I can easily pickup on other people's feelings and absorb it as being my own, being super sensitive to negativity, disharmony, and conflict, and needing to spend lots of time in nature in order to feel normal. I quickly started to learn that by avoiding certain situations, saying no, and spending more time in nature I could start to feel balanced. I also learned that the more time I spent in nature, I was able to connect with myself and thus my intuition.
My intuitive and psychic abilities started to manifest, as I began to study and learn how to evolve my natural gifts. I don't know why, but I have always been drawn to eastern philosophies, alternative healing, and metaphysics. I was first introduced to the concept of energy healing through Reiki where I learned about the chakras and energy. I remember one day in my level one Reiki class learning that you can send distance healing energy to someone on the other side of the world, into the past, or into the future. This concept blew my mind! I was so intrigued and wanted to learn more, so I ended up getting my Masters in Reiki and later certified.
Over the years I have attended psychic development courses, shamanic journeying workshops, and meditation circles to develop my psychic and intuitive abilities. When you start to walk down a spiritual path that connects you closer to yourself and with the divine or universe, you quickly realize that you need to clear out and remove all the obstacles and barriers in your path in order to evolve. This direction in my life has inspired me on my own path of self-discovery and spiritual healing. As a result, I have studied a broad range of health and spiritual topics and used this knowledge to heal and balance my body, mind, and spirit by using a blend of energy healing, sound vibration healing, crystal healing, therapeutic oils, flower essence, nutrition, exercise, yoga, affirmations, and meditations.
With a medical background in Therapeutic Recreation and my experience working in acute and community settings, I have knowledge and expertise in working with people living with chronic health conditions, physical and cognitive impairments and/or disabilities, as well as mental health and substance use disorders. I am all to aware that we are all complicated beings and what we show on the outside does not always reflect what is going on inside. I also know that some of us are disconnected from ourselves and not aware of how past or present feelings are affecting our present well-being.
I have helped many people to reconnect with themselves and redirect them on their own unique journey. I believe that the answers we seek are within ourselves, but sometimes we need some help to find the way. My own journey lead me down a path that I could never have imagined and in doing so, I had to learn to listen to the beat of my own drum. I now fully trust that I have found my purpose in this life and that I am here to help you to find yours. So let me help you. Let me help you to listen to the beat of your own drum.
"I believe that dis-ease is created when we neglect to listen to our mind, body and spirit. Imbalances in the body on the mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level can manifest into physical dis-ease when not treated.
Most people don't realize that the pain they are feeling can be the result of mental, emotional or spiritual stress that has occurred because one has not taken the steps to deal with it properly.
But what if there was a way to prevent dis-ease from occurring by just listening our bodies? What if we decided to listen to our hearts and allow healing to occur on a mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual level? Just imagine the possibilities that could occur!"
