I am an intuitive coach who specializes in supporting enterprising, heart-centered individuals to realize their power and connection to their true selves and the divine so they are able to heal and grow while manifesting a more awake, productive, and fulfilling life.
Since a very young age, I have been working with all manner of spiritual beings and energy. Over time I learned to understand, practice, and grow my abilities. I am comfortable with a variety of situations and energies that others might find unusual, strange, dark, or uncomfortable. I have in innate ability to listen to others, to be attentive to what they are sharing, and to provide constructive feedback. I support my clients with energy healing, guided meditation, spiritual guidance, and ritual.
I have always been a “freak”. I have been misunderstood, made to feel crazy, shamed, feared, and bullied by those closest to me as well as by strangers.
Why am I sharing this? Because like so many, I know what it means to feel powerless.
I know what it means to feel different. I know what it means to be ostracized. I know what it means to struggle to walk in your truth. I know the pain and the strength it takes to show up every day. I also know what it means to experience things outside of the standard, or normalized convention of spiritual experience. That is why I’m so passionate about my work. I want others to know that they truly can be accepted and supported on their journeys. I want people to know, when they think that they are experiencing something that no one else could understand, that there is someone who will show up, without judgment, and listen with an open heart
I am happy to answer any questions that you may have about me, my experience, or the work that I do. I believe in respect, honesty, transparency, and integrity.
