About This Work

My Philosophy:

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 drop in the bucket of your soul

has a ripple effect....

My passion is to share tools with you that help you empower yourself, & support you in your healing and growth process.


The overarching theme of my work is Restoration of balance and Transformation
- on all levels of being - body, mind, heart, & soul.


The eclectic mix of practices that I work with include Reiki, meditation, sound healing, Transformational Coaching, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mind-Body Medicine, Somatic Psychology, Stress Management, Food As Medicine, as well as other tools like art-making, chanting, drumming, Tarot, astrology, yoga, movement, as desired....   To read more details about any of these modalities, see below.

Because we are creatures of habit & conditioning, I offer a variety of tools in a creative and customized way, in order to in order to find the practices which resonate with you the most.  I offer holistic, long-lasting, & often ongoing therapeutic support on all levels, and with each session, send you back out into your life set up for success in living your best life every day.  Occasionally, I may refer you to a fellow practitioner for complimentary treatment such as acupuncture, massage, craniosacral therapy, etc. 

We all have something we are working through, whether we are recovering from childhood trauma, emotional &/or physical 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 to find peace with where we are & manifest the next phase in our lives. 


Sometimes we have to come at an issue from a number of different angles in order to learn what we are supposed to learn from it, shift, and move on.... And different things work for different people. In over 30 years now of teaching in visual & performing arts, academics, & healing, I've always taken various learning styles into account, as well as Howard Gardner's Theory of Multiple Intelligences, both of which I was acquainted with intuitively firsthand in my own experience before knowing that there were books written about such things.


I am not a savior or a guru. I am not here to do the work for you. I am not even here to empower you, that would presume that I have power over you. I do not believe in a top-down, authoritative model of care. Instead, I believe that we are each the supreme authority over ourselves. I believe in a holistic model of care that takes the whole person into account; that if we tune in & listen, we generally can discover the root of our imbalance, whether physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Yes, sometimes we need Western medicine. But throwing drugs & surgery at a problem should not be the first solution except in dire emergency.


I'm here to help you get more intimately acquainted with yourself & what makes you tick. I'm here to help you embrace what inspires you, be your best self, & live life as though it's a work of art.

The Truth is inside You.

We are creatures of habit, and some of the karmic patterns we are working through run deep, and often are perhaps older than this lifetime. Additionally, ancestral trauma is embedded in our DNA.


The good news is - neuroplasticity - the brain's ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons (nerve cells) in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.

Meditation, mind-body skills, mindfulness, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Somatic Awareness, and sound healing all help you to rewire your brain and reset your DNA, reprogram your response to certain stimuli, uncover all the layers that conceal the soul, and get to the Truth of who you are so that you can live your most fulfilling life. 




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 complimentary/integrative modalities 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.

Any services are available as standalone services, but in 1:1 work, typically, I combine a number of tools with various contemplative practices, mind-body skills, soul work, and artistic innovation in a holistic way that suits your needs and desires.

I enjoy improvising with meditation, the Arts, & the Art of Transformation, and discovering new ways to bring them together. 


Read more about each modality, & why I've chosen them, below.


Remember, We are Spirits having a Human Experience.
I am here to support you in your journey....



For those of you who are more 'left-brain' or logically-minded, science has proven the benefits of all these modalities, and I am able to come at all of this from a more 'academic' angle as well.  You are also welcome to do your own research.  Ask the Googles... 

And, as with anything, the best way to learn about any of this work is to experience it for yourself.

“Creativity is our birthright.  It is an integral part of being human, as basic as walking, talking, & thinking....  

    The creative process, like a spiritual journey, is intuitive, nonlinear, and experiential. It points us toward our essential nature, which is a reflection of the boundless creativity of the universe....”
