My Journey

The need for my own healing was the beginning of my journey to this work. At a time of a general dissatisfaction with life, I sought out Reiki. Feeling the Reiki energy moving through my body was an incredible experience. The healing began with that very first appointment as I felt a renewed connection with myself and the world around me. It was an amazing experience and I remain forever grateful to the Reiki Master who guided me through that time in my life. Several years later, emotionally wounded and unable to move past my pain, I again sought Reiki. Once again, the Reiki provided clearing and balancing of my energies and I was able to move on. At that time I felt the undeniable calling to provide to others the same deep healing that I had experienced. My first class began shortly thereafter, and over the course of several years I progressed through all levels of Reiki training. Since that time I have added several additional modalities, recognizing that not every person is best served by one single type of healing.

When not healing, helping, and teaching others, I find enjoyment in nature, photography, music, reading, time with friends and family, and the continued quest to fulfill my earthly purpose.
