I was a psychic kid. Clairaudient to be exact. I spent most of my childhood in nature; exploring the woods with my brother or best friend around our homes in rural Maryland. My energy work practice builds upon these childhood experiences plus training in Reiki, Alchemical Healing, shamanism, energy intuition, shamanic herbalism, ancestral clearing and forgiveness work. This makes for a unique healing experience for my clients.
During my childhood, I had a couple of what felt like at the time to be super creepy experiences. One of which was the premonition of my godmother’s death… another was a spirit named Mary Ruth who was killed in the house we lived in who would regularly show up seeking help in transitioning to the light. I didn’t know how to deal with this nor did I have the resources to help me work through it so I asked it to stop. And it did.
The next 10 years were spent creating and making art where intuition and channeling were used on a daily basis but with the purpose of artistic expression.
While living in Miami Beach in the mid-1990s, I delved into energy work and the channeling of light and spirits through many regular experiences. It was like my hobby. I saw a channeler regularly, received a chakra clearing from a Venezuelan healer who only spoke Spanish, participated in my first sweat lodge on the beach in SoFi, and read every book Sanaya Roman channeled.
The next 10 years were spent creating art, fundraising for arts and civic organizations, moving cross-country, throwing boomerangs competitively, and learning about love + heartbreak firsthand on many levels.
It was the search for “What did the energy coming out of the palms of my hands mean?” while practicing Kundalini yoga in 2005 that led me to my current career. At its essence, Kundalini yoga is about the movement of energy in the body and, through its practice, I came to recognize my gifts.
In search of what to do with this new found skill, I experimented with it in classes, workshops and trainings, out of which my herbal products company, Botany of the Soul, was born. But it wasn’t until I met my mentor, Marie Manuchehri, in pursuit of the 40-year old woman’s holy grail (conception), that the way I work today really began to come together.
Shortly thereafter the energy healing modality of Alchemical Healing showed itself through a late-night Google search. I don’t even know what I was searching for but I found the wonderful Sharlyn Hidalgo who taught me that the “WTF?” question that kept rolling around in my head as I was channeling energy was not unique to me. Alchemical Healing with its wide-range of healing tools (Reiki, shamanism, herbalism, with an Egyptian pantheon) gave me permission to mix and match techniques for the unique situation that each client brings to a session.
It was also during this time that babies in utero starting talking to me and a guide from the unseen world would point out spirit babies during sessions with fertility clients.
I have work with clients using clairaudience, clairsentience, channeling, energy intuition, ancestral clearing and forgiveness work. I specialize in strengthening the connection between your human body and your soul so that you can fully birth your business, baby, or your self into the world by heightening the frequency of your energetic body inline with your higher self.
The mantra I live by is Love More. And I am attempting to make an art form out of filling my days with those things I love including the proximity of living near the heart of Seattle and within walking distant to my office, spending time in a giant urban park where I can walk for an hour in the woods, and enjoying the highs and lows of dog ownership with my amazing person, Pope.
