I was born and raised in Leavenworth and have lived in the Wenatchee Valley my entire life, except for one year when my husband and I lived on our sailboat as we sailed from Seattle to the South Sea Islands of the Marquesas, Tuamotus and Tahiti. I currently live in Orondo where my husband and I have operated an organic apple orchard and warehouse for the past 30 years. We are a small family farm committed to honoring the earth, respecting the people who work for us, and valuing those who eat our healthy, delicious apples.
I graduated from Barbara Brennan School of Healing in 2009 with a 4 yr degree in energy healing and in 2011 with an Advanced degree in Brennan Integration Work. I decided to become an energy healer after my own experience receiving energy healings connected me to my life’s path and my passion. This program is designed to specifically guide and assist those of you who wish to go deeper into your personal transformational process.
I have studied to the Advanced Level in CranioSacral Therapy at the Upledger Institute. This Institute and modality was begun by John Upledger and is a powerful and deeply effective healing technique.
In 2010 I began Hakomi training with the original creator of Hakomi Therapy, Ron Kurtz. I continued my studies in Hakomi with this well-respected teacher until his passing in 2011 and I currently study with those teachers he trained that have spent many years with Ron and his amazing teachings.
Other trainings and workshops I have attended are Pathwork at Seven Oaks Pathwork Center in Virginia with Susan Thesenga, Transformational Breathing from founder Judith Kravitz plus many Family Constellations workshops.
“My longing in life and my life’s work is to more deeply embody myself and my place in the world, being fully present with myself and with you. How present I am in the moment is crucial because healing only occurs in this present moment; but a healing moment ripples forward and back."
"I believe it is infinitely possible to become more sensitive, articulate, and fluent in the ability to listen to our bodies, express ourselves with our bodies, and process our energy more precisely. As an energy healer my task and commitment is to notice what part of my whole being and body is dancing with the flow of information and energy that is coming into it; while being present with you."
