My journey with Reiki began during childhood when my family and I moved into a historic landmark in Vermont. The house was built in the 1800’s and shared a lot with an active cemetery. When I was 7 years old I began to experience psychic attacks from earthbound spirits stuck in the lower vibrations of human consciousness, namely fear, anger, and grief. I quickly learned of my ability to sense and communicate with energies from the etheric realm and beyond. They saw me as a light in the dark and sought for my guidance and support.
At the time, I was not equipped to understand the depth of these experiences and was in a constant state of distress. During my darkest moments, my mother would comfort me with Reiki and I was immediately back in the energy of universal love and safety. I learned that all experiences are born from either a place of fear, or of love and that you cannot be in both vibrations at the same time.
I attended college in Philadelphia at Drexel University and was able to maintain some normalcy, but was always haunted by physical discomfort when I went home to visit for the holidays. I became skilled at blocking myself from these negative experiences, but I was unaware that I was also blocking my true gifts. It wasn’t until I moved to Los Angeles in 2015 that I began to revisit some of this trauma and relate to it differently.
Moving to the West Coast felt like a new beginning in a place that was strangely familiar. Upon arriving I became aware of the wealth of resources available for healing. I rediscovered Reiki and went for a session with the woman who would later become my teacher. In May of 2016 I became a certified Reiki Master and an insured affiliate member of the International Center for Reiki Training through www.reiki.org. I’ve been working with private clients ever since. I continue to be fascinated how those who need my healing always find me.
In addition to Reiki, I am a hospice volunteer and an End of Life Doula. I am passionate about caring for the terminally ill and the emotional and spiritual needs during the death process. This includes processing of life's purpose and meaning, sacred contracts, closure and forgiveness practices, and legacy work.
