I have a strong passion for assisting others in their self-healing, and as a guide for learning to listen to, and integrate with, one’s higher self. My goal is that every person I work with is empowered and acknowledged, and an active participant in their own healing journey.
Ever since I can remember, I have been working with all shades of spiritual beings and energy. I came across Michael Harner’s The Way of the Shaman in grade school and many of my experiences began to make sense. I used his book (in addition to working with my spirit guides and companions) to understand and practice my abilities. In 2000 I became a practicing Certified Master of Usui Shiki Ryoho in the Usui Tradition in the Usui/Hayashi/Takata/Furumoto lineage. I have also taken formal training in CORE Shamanism, Compassionate Depossession, and Curse Unraveling. My strengths include psychopomp work, depossession, soul retrieval, and energy healing. I am also very comfortable with situations, questions, and energies that others might find too strange, dark, or uncomfortable.

End of Life Guide
“There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time, this expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open. You do not even have to believe in yourself or your work. You have to keep open and aware directly to the urges that motivate you. Keep the channel open. No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is on a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others.”…
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
