Free 15 minute initial consultation; followed by regular 1 hour sessions.

Belief Release

This type of work is focused on releasing beliefs that no longer serve you. We will use body awareness, your breath, and imagination to remove fears that are holding you back, aiming for you to feel more free.

This is a 60-90 minute session purely focused on removing single or multiple beliefs within the one session.

Reiki Session

Reiki is a form of holistic medicine also known as energy healing. Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing through which a universal life force is transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. The experience is relaxing, harmonizing and balancing. 

Please allow 75 minutes for a Reiki session.

Breath-Body-Mind Coherence Breathing

This breath work allows one to feel calm or relaxed, very similar to alternate nostril breathing. Science has shown that it balances the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system which impacts the entire body. Well used by many athletes, this practice is optimal for regulating blood pressure and assisting with depression and anxiety, to name a few.

Please allow 60 minutes for a session - group sessions are available.

Vibrational Communication

Flower remedies have been used for centuries across the world. Every person is different and reacts in various ways to external influences. Body testing it utilized to see if a flower essence is the right option at this time and to customize it for you. I use two different types of vibrational communication - one for alleviating physical pain, the other for emotional.

Please allow 60 minutes for a session.

My Approach

Why Do I Do This?

Realizing early in life that I am a highly sensitive person and an empath was not easy for me. In a strict household where rules were key, as a child growing up I found that my feelings were dismissed as 'not important.' This was something I found very hard to cope with, and I found a deep seated purpose in my life to be of service to all people through my work to help people understand themselves, trust in the wisdom of their body and allow themselves to truly feel and deal with the stormy sea of emotions that is life. By using energy work, healing modalities, and Breathwork to heal old wounds, pain, and fear, I continually enhance my understanding and empathy for humankind and the world that surrounds us and I receive so much joy from changing peoples lives for the better.

My Path...

"Being a mental health provider and using my skills to improve peoples lives is my ultimate goal. I love seeing what people can achieve as the best version of themselves."​
