My Journey

What I am Offering

I am an intuitive energy healer, an Usui Reiki Master and a 200-hour certified yoga instructor, providing motivated women the support to face and transform their critical inner voice by connecting and clearing physical, mental and spiritual blocks, enabling them to find and make peace with their authentic selves. 

I have been drawn to the metaphysical world since childhood and while I have spent several years developing my training and gifts, it wasn’t until recently that my own healing abilities started taking on a more important role.

 

​Where I Was

 

I was born and raised in Whitehall, PA and being a Nittany Lion at heart, I spent my undergraduate years at The Pennsylvania State University where I studied advertising and public relations as well as business administration.  Much of my 20's were spent in the Washington D.C. metro area, enjoying the life that the big city had to offer and centering my career around marketing communications.  In late 2010, my now husband and I moved back to Pennsylvania and started our family a few years later.

As it often does, life took a painful sharp turn in 2016 when my mother was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer.  Less than two years later, she passed away and what remained was a very huge hole in my heart and life.  Losing my mother changed everything and even caused other close relationships to deteriorate.  I was 36 years old, with a newborn and toddler, and I had to completely redefine and reimagine what my life was going to look like from that moment on. 

Even before the pandemic hit, I felt alone and was overwhelmed with what life had become.  I was exhausted, in every sense of the word.  I felt like no matter what I did, I had no control.  I literally had nothing left to give and while my kids were a big reason that I continued to carry on, I knew I wasn’t able to give up on myself.  I needed to regain control of my emotions, eliminate the self-doubt, and begin the process of healing from within.  So in the beginning of 2021, I got to work, and have been chipping away at my shadow self ever since.  I am a work in progress but I will always strive to be better than before. 

Where I am Now

It took some time but I finally remembered and embraced the notion that I am 100% responsible for my own healing.  Gone are the days where I can have mom and dad help fix what was broken. I now have to figure it out for myself.  And while I do have a wonderfully supportive husband and many amazing people in my life, it is up to me to pick up whatever pieces seem to fall.  Even with knowledge and energetic tools at my disposal, I continue to face some deep-rooted emotional obstacles and as I travel along my journey, I wonder how many other women are going through similar things. 

For those who are in the same boat and in the same place in life, just remember that it isn’t easy to make changes, even if you know they are necessary for the bigger picture.  I struggle each day to look into that mirror and love the woman looking back—the gray(er) hair, the rounder body, the tired eyes I have from not sleeping for what seems like a lifetime (thanks kids!)

So I invite you to join me on this great adventure.  Let's embrace who we are and together, we can strengthen the Universal Love to help us better navigate the road and roller coasters ahead.

With Love and Compassion,
