holistic health & sound practitioner
Each person deserves to have a life in which they experience wellness, passion, enthusiasm, and feel they are making a positive impact in their lives as well as in the lives of others. When we have a loving and supportive network that reinforces our own desires and goals, we thrive and are able to live our best life with greater ease and fulfillment.
As a child, I grew up in the desert Southwest and felt a deep connection to the land in expansive open and quiet places that were abundant and undisturbed. I felt most at home sitting on a rock or climbing a mountain through fresh breezes and pine forests. Nature was my first love, companion and teacher, and it is where I found solace and healing from early childhood trauma that resulted in a long struggle with anxiety, well into adulthood.
In my early twenties I was drawn to Spirit and began a lifelong journey to deepen my connection to Mother Earth, the Cosmos and to each other. Throughout my young adult years and growing into motherhood, I discovered my own gifts of healing and service. Music was always a healing force in my life, especially in my most difficult times.
Over the years, I grew more sensitive to subtle energies and deepened my spiritual practice through yoga, meditation, while introducing a plant-based diet. My desire to learn about healing myself naturally, mind, body and heart has inspired and directed my holistic health education and practice.
More recently, I traveled repeatedly to the Blue Zone on the Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica to learn about and experience ancient cultures and shamanic practices that tap into Mother Earth. I participated in sacred plant medicine ceremonies, sat with Amazonian medicine men and women who have passed down ancient teachings that were both healing and inspiring, and which resonated deeply within my Soul. In Costa Rica I was introduced to crystal singing bowl sound healing and was instantly transformed by the sound vibrations and experienced deeper consciousness, ease and an inner bliss. I experienced first-hand physical and emotional healing from the plant medicine and sacred sound journeys. This compelled me to learn as much as I could about the healing properties of crystal singing bowls and sound.
It is my wish and intention to share with my neighbors, friends and community the gifts, teachings and transformative secrets that have been passed down to me to experience wellness, happiness and more love in our life.
I have a B.A. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. I am certified by the International School of Regenerative Detoxification as a Detoxification Specialist; certified Holistic Health Coach by the Institute of Integrative Nutrition; certified Holistic Health Practitioner by the American Association of Drugless Practitioners, and the State University of New York Purchase College.
My Sound Therapy Practice is an organic and intuitive expression that reflects my sacred instrument training with Shanti Sounds Costa Rica, Level I Sound Healing.
As we heal ourselves, we heal others, and we heal the planet.
