“You can dance in a hurricane, but only if you’re standing in the eye.”
Life can show up like a hurricane- partners and family members become ill from mental illness and addiction, families change, tragedies happen, babies are born and rock your world and sense of who you are and what you want for your life, partnerships can crumble at the most inopportune moments, jobs change…. Life happens- it is always changing and can seem like a hurricane. Are you able to stand in the eye? Are you able to find stillness and listen to your true self, or are you sucked up by the wind, swirling in panic and fear of the unknown of the changes of life?
You may not believe me, but you can learn to stand in the eye of the hurricane of life when it feels like you are getting swept away. I’ve been there, and I am here to help you heal, clear old patterns and learn tools for letting go and letting your energy flow. I’m here to help you bring awareness to your own mind/body/spirit connection and how to heal yourself through a variety of different practices and modalities.
And life doesn’t necessarily have to be a hurricane at the moment to join me in your healing process… I have clients who are feeling a little stuck, who have an ache or pain that just won’t leave their body, or they are really interested and intrigued by Reiki and Intuitive work! Check out the rest of my website to see what I offer.
Part of my work is to raise awareness and conversation about codependency and healthy relationships around recovery in families, while working to take the shame and blame out of the family disease of addiction. Often times the road to recovery breeds codependency across the generations, and it is not always clear that this family disease is what caused it.
I have had my own journey of learning about and healing and recovery, over the past 8 years, and is what gives me the strength to share my work and tools with others. I have family members and a spouse who are in recovery and on their path of healing, working toward healing depression and anxiety, and others who have not yet found a path to recovery, and those with deep denial that there is a need for recovery.
I teach An Energetic Perspective on Addiction 6 times a year, and many of my clients are finding their own path of recovery, and are ready to find their voice and their power, and to stop getting drained/angry/fearful/depressed/anxious because of others who struggle with the disease of addiction. Starting in September, I will hold a monthly virtual support group using Zoom (3rd Tuesday night of the month) for those who take this class.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher and have completed two full years of intuitive training (meeting once a week for 2 hours) which I infuse into and bring to my clients with Intuitive Reiki Healing Sessions. I offer these sessions in my office in Lafayette, CO and distance, over the phone- see the side bar (or bottom of the page on a phone) for testimonials. These sessions help my clients in many ways, balancing chakra energies, helping you move “stagnant” energy, helping you to notice and realize the connection of energetic and emotional blocks in the body, which can show up as pain and discomfort.
I hold a comfortable and brave space for you to share how life is showing up and I will listen, holding the energetic space. I have experienced the power of simple practices and will help you ground and clear from an embodied place.
I also teach these skills through different classes – Reiki classes, An Energetic Perspective on Addiction throughout the year, and offer a monthly Reiki Share. A life-long teacher, I love to give students the tools, confidence and possibility to heal themselves, through guiding them and helping them move energy.
