Walking the path with heart since 1999, my private practice is steeped in indigenous & nature-based wisdom traditions. After many years of extensive and intensive study and training, I began offering healing and ceremonial services and retreats professionally in 2010. Since then, I have facilitated hundreds of sessions and ceremonies.

I have studied with indigenous healing practitioners spanning multiple earth-honoring traditions, including but not limited to Toltec and Q’uero, with my deepest experience in Huichol and Shipibo healing traditions. I do not presume to represent these lineages of practice beyond the permission extended by my teachers. My public offerings are cross-cultural, always rooted in deep reverence for those who have shared their ways, and for the earth.

I am a life-learner and a life-long learner. In addition to indigenous healing studies, my early secondary education was focused on visual arts and communication.
My personal journey of re/discovery, which began with a health crisis in my mid-twenties, organically led to a transition from a professional design career to the healing arts full-time in 2016.

Since the late 1990s, I have completed trainings and certifications in:

  • Shamanic Healing

  • Somatic Attachment Therapy

  • Hellenistic Astrology

  • Aromatherapy

  • Kundalini Yoga & Prenatal Yoga

  • Sacred Postpartum Mother Roasting

From a Western perspective, I have completed courses in:

  • Trauma-informed Care

  • Attachment Theory

  • Polyvagal Theory (Nervous System/ Vagus Nerve),

  • Somatic Experiencing

  • Life Coaching

I have attended multiple continuing education trainings such as:

  • Homeopathy for Women and Children

  • Crystal Healing

  • Shipibo Abdominal Massage

  • Early levels of Mayan Abdominal Therapy and Western Massage

I am a long-time student of the PersonEssence Archetypal Personality Model, Mindfulness Meditation and Mythology. I have also deeply explored diet, nutrition and its mind-body connection. 

With all that said, contemplation, meditation, direct revelation and the natural world remain among my greatest teachers. 

While I have studied and incorporate psychological perspectives into my work and am certified in modalities employed in modern psychology, I am not a licensed psychotherapist. I have personally found indigenous healing and universal wisdom practices to be efficient, effective, holistic, satisfying and soulful, a valid alternative to conventional Western methods. That said, this work compliments rather than excludes traditional talk therapy, psychoanalysis and any other healing modality. 

I am deeply interested in cultural creativity and cultural healing. I also geek out on things like herbal remedies and plant medicines, gardening, alternative educational and parenting philosophies, painting, crafting and chocolate making, which I might blog about here as well.

And, just a heads-up, in true artisan/ shape-shifter form, my hair is ever-changing. There's a decent chance it may look different the next time you see me. :)
