more about sessions
Each effort, each moment
of processing, of honoring, of truly seeing, acknowledging, releasing judgement, exploring, looking deeper, searching in the shadows, being real with ourselves about what we find, playing with it, releasing, letting go, and then implementing actions which contribute to our growth and purpose in life... each
has a ripple effect....
My passion is giving you tools and support to empower yourself in your healing and growth process.
We all have something we are working through, whether we are recovering from childhood trauma or other emotional wounds, battling fear, trying to unravel unhealthy conditioning and limiting beliefs, trying to shift something in the way we relate to ourselves or others, or just trying manifest the next phase in our lives.
Additionally, ancestral trauma is embedded in our DNA. The good news is... neuroplasticity. Mind-body skills can help in actually rewiring the brain and reprogramming our response to certain stimuli. Read more at 'about this work.'
No matter where you are in your life right now, or where you 'want to be',
it's all about Perspective, and the stories that you tell yourself....
Feeling stagnant or stuck but not sure why?
Thinking you'll finally be happy if only ____ happens?
Finding yourself caught up in your own mind,
disconnected from your body, and your higher Self?
Are you manifesting some type of imbalance
- emotional, mental, physical, energetic, even
spiritual - and looking for alternative or
for healing and growth?
Or, are you actually feeling pretty happy in your life overall, and simply
ready for active support in manifesting the next big Shift
in your life? Maybe you're ready to turbocharge your personal evolution,
or you're searching for deeper meaning and fulfillment in your life.
Perhaps, you're a mother, or a father, tired
of the status quo, looking for a different kind
of support for yourself and/or your children - support that nurtures the whole child, truly bolsters their overall health, free of labels & boxes, and offers suggestions for natural alternatives to conventional ways of dealing with 'mental health.'
Our socio-emotional health is just as important as our physical health, and in fact, they are connected and influence one another!
I love to work with children, families, and couples as well.
(And ask about Reiki for your pets!)
If you are looking for something beyond the status quo... you are in the right place:
alternatives (&/or compliment) to mainstream therapeutic practices, for yourself, a loved one, your family;
holistic therapeutic support for yourself &/or your children that caters to mental and emotional intelligence, as well as spiritual, if desired;
guidance with cultivating healthy eating habits;
help exploring alternatives to the largely toxic and for-profit Western medical system;
holistic rehabilitation support for recovery from alcoholism/addiction;
guidance with incorporating cannabis, herbal medicine, &/or supplements into your healthcare regimen, etc*....
* All guidance is given in full legal compliance and is in no way intended to diagnose or cure disease, nor to replace medical advice.
More specifically, when I guide a session, I may draw on Yoga Nidra or other guided meditations; visualizations; journaling; visual art processes (for giving voice to one’s subconscious thoughts and feelings); singing, chanting, music-making, dancing; and dialogue, in Safe Space, inspired by self-reflection, self-inquiry, & self-discovery. How the session flows and what is incorporated depends partly on if it is a group or private session, what the setting is, the energy in the room, what is needed & desired....
Every session is highly customized to your wishes & needs.
I typically include energetic clearing via smudging (with sage, palo santo, and/or other herbs) &/or sound healing depending on the length of session. For online sessions, Reiki can be used for energetic clearing from a distance.
We may also incorporate storytelling... your life story; yoga or other movement; tarot; EFT (emotional freedom technique - also known as 'tapping'); massage with CBD salve and crystals; suggestions for lifestyle changes - looking at your diet, personal care & cleaning products, how to discover Food as Medicine; etc....

Feel free to contact me with any questions, or set up a complimentary Discovery Call to discuss the needs for your group, or if interested in 1:1 work, to talk about how I might be able to help you grow through whatever you are working on in your life right now.
If you are new to me, the best way to get a sense of what this work 'looks and feels like' is to experience it for yourself, so try an intro session and then we can proceed from there....
Some people come to me for ongoing 1:1s in which we meet weekly or bi-weekly for 2-3 hour sessions. They may continue with regular sessions ongoing, benefitting from an 'accountability partner' with whom to check in every week, just as many people do with a talk therapist. Some may have a specific issue they are growing through, and when they feel a level of 'completion,' they then take a break from privates but continue supporting their self-care & evolution by coming to classes and special offerings.
I offer package rates at a 10% discount for a set of 7.
I do my best to keep my prices reasonable, but know that my rates are subject to change.
It is important to me that this work is accessible, so if you are interested, and cost is prohibitive, let me know, and let's see what we can work out. If you are financially abundant and can afford more for your sessions, please feel free to pay more. ;)
I love doing corporate gigs! Whether it's simply a one-time meditation class in your office, a block of mini Reiki sessions, a workshop about cultivating a meditation practice, a speaking engagement of healthy living, or a customized retreat, I'm down! Rates vary widely, depending on the circumstance.
Individual Private Sessions
I do see clients for standalone sessions, but most people come to me looking to grow through something. If you are a new client who is ready to Dive Deep and commit to an initial series of seven sessions of at least two hours each, I do a comprehensive intake to get a solid idea of "where you've come from, where you're at, and where you're going." We talk about your physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health; your short-, medium-, and long-term goals; and your traumas, emotional wounds, and major life milestones. Sometimes we go into the life story, in detail.
A typical session will begin with a short meditation to bring us down from our minds and integrate with our bodies so that we can be as present as possible for the session. Then we have a check-in, where we talk for a bit. The length of time we talk depends on the length of the session, but for example, in a two-hour session, the first half of that may be our check-in. And then we move into the modalities of choice, so that may be smudging/clearing, a taste of sound healing, 40 minutes on the table receiving Reiki, and then a closing check-in where I will give homework.
Depending on the circumstances, one may experience a lasting shift in a couple weeks, months, or it may be a progression over a year or longer. Consider that often, if you go to traditional therapy to work through an issue, you are asked to commit to at least a year of sessions. Most people find this work far more effective and in-depth than traditional talk therapy.
Some people see me on an ongoing basis as they grow through changes, and as an integral part of their regular self-care routine, an accountability partner so to speak, someone to regularly check in with. For this reason, I do offer a yearly subscription at a current price of $750/month for a total of 44 two-hour sessions throughout the calendar year, which is a 15% discount - a total annual savings of almost $1600. And of course, you can buy a similarly discounted package for 3-hour sessions as well.
Group sessions are highly customizable to any situation and can vary from basic Meditation 101, to more playful energy with Mindfulness Games, or Sound Baths, moon circles, drum circles, sensory immersions, art parties, or full-on retreats of varying lengths. I love to innovate with healing and the arts, and I can always customize a workshop to your needs.
Bring me to your office, hire me to produce a Wellness Fair for your workplace, or host a wellness party at your home or even a remote location. Include a fully catered organic meal if you wish!
I'm available for public speaking engagements and lecture/demos about how to demystify healthy living, beat stress, experience Food As Medicine, prevent disease and incorporate meditation, mindfulness, healthy eating, complimentary medicine, and self-expression into your life in pragmatic ways, in order to live your most fulfilling life. Contact me to start the dialogue....
