Hi there! Welcome!
I created this website as a place where I can offer the modalities I've been most recently drawn to practice, with Sacred Embodiment: the Method underlying them all. No matter which modalities I am guided to include in a session, integrating them with SETM ensures that the assistance you receive is distortion- and agenda-free. I choose to support and enhance your own self-sovereignty and self-empowerment; it's beyond time to be free from guru ego distortions and the false hierarchy.
I'm here to assist magical beings - like YOU - in BEing more of your inherent magical, beautiful, empowered selves.
I work with those who are no longer content to rely on traditional and outdated paradigms, systems, and structures. With those who are done giving their power away to self-appointed gurus driven by ego, or being seduced by the hype of "instant manifestation and magick."
I work with those who have sensed that there's another way, a more efficient and powerful way to clear the path so they can step into the full depth of their essence. I'm here for those who are ready to do the real work, at the deepest of levels, so that positive change is permanent.
I help others expand and ground their own creative essence. As we clear what's standing in the way of claiming your full power, we ground other aspects of your life and business. My goal is to clear your energetic field and thereby activate the true depth of your own wisdom and magic. By clearing what's distorting your full magical expression, you shine brighter and become more empowered and magnetic.
I also use my own intuitive connection to create magical artwork (including five original and powerful oracle decks) which activate high-vibrational frequencies and light codes in my viewers. Through art and healing, we get in touch with the true depth of your own wisdom and magic: your own unique essence. We spark your imagination, heighten your intuition, and move you towards the true magnificence of who you are meant to be.
Ultimately, I teach you to use whatever resources you have to show up and be fully your Self, without waiting for the "perfect" circumstances (which don't really exist, by the way).
Play where you are. With what you have. As you BE.
I first entered the realm of energetic healing when my physical body crashed into stage 3 adrenal exhaustion and I was simultaneously diagnosed with lupus in my late 20s. Admittedly, I’d fallen into the “more is better” trap when it came to physical fitness; I was training for and playing competitive rugby, training for mini triathlons, running with the D.C. Hash House Harriers, and teaching multiple fitness classes a week, continually wondering how far I could push myself and ignoring all my body’s warnings. I tore my ACL, broke my collarbone and finger, and repeatedly tore up my ankles. I’d exhaust myself but refuse to give myself a break. “Mind over matter,” right?! I was bored to tears at my day job and used physical exercise as my outlet.
My side job at the time (mornings and weekends and sometimes during lunch) was as a fitness trainer, and the fitness coordinator at one of the gyms offered me my first ever healing session when I started to crash. My curiosity was piqued. I’d discovered and read the Neale Donald Walsch series of Conversations with God books years prior, but hadn’t realized there was so much more to do and learn until my body said, “Freaking STOP already!”
My next introduction to energy healing came through a slew of intense fitness certifications through the CHEK Institute in Vista, California (the Ultra Spiritual JP Sears was on the faculty at that time). Through my trainings to become a CHEK Practitioner and Holistic Lifestyle Coach, I grew more and more acquainted with just how much of our physical experience is influenced by energetics, and the extent to which targeting physical issues at the root – on an energetic level – makes an even greater impact that targeting “symptoms” such as holding onto extra weight. During the time I was training at the CHEK Institute, I nearly quit (but ultimately didn't) my Masters degree in Exercise Science and Health Promotion (with a specialization in Performance Enhancement). My new trainings through the CHEK Institute, as well as all the new information I was coming across at the fitness conferences I attended (as a graphic and web designer for one of the national conferences, they gave me free tickets to any conference as long as I got myself there), I began to realize how outdated and incomplete traditional curriculum can be. I’d been learning information that disproved (or greatly expanded upon) much of what I was required to “learn” in order to complete my M.S. I decided to get my degree anyway and incorporate my own learnings — including more holistic, energetic, and advanced perspectives — into the foundational perspectives.
From there, I found a local healer named Mimi Malfitano, and she referred me to two powerful healers in Silver Spring, Maryland (I lived in the Washington, DC area at the time) who were running a deep transformational journey and certification called Healing with Light. Over the following years, I studied with numerous teachers such as Katherine Wright Desai, Veronica and Eloheim, Kim Eibrink Jansen, and Michelle Lowbridge, greatly enhancing my understanding of energy work and introducing me to practical and powerful tools for daily life.
Over the years, I've continued to follow my intuition and train with whomever I was drawn to, even (and often especially) if I didn’t know exactly “why.” I've accumulated experience studying and working with numerous powerful modalities including Reiki, Arcturian Reiki, EFT (most powerful IMHO in the form of "Investigative Tapping)”, Empowered Energetics, Energy Editing, the Akashic Records, Light Language, the Emotion Code, the Anahata Codes (Quantum Frequencies), Sacred Activations, Core Expansion, and most recently Sacred Embodiment: the Method.
I’ve also designed and self-published 5 energetically-infused oracle decks, marrying my loves of art, design, writing, and energy work. Along with client commissions to co-create decks, I also teach others to harness their own oracle deck magic (including energetic clearings and activations) and release their own potent, unique oracle decks into the world.
Are you ready to get your magic going??
