I was raised in a cult where anything remotely magical was demonized.
After leaving at 17, I leaned deeply into hardcore atheism and was quite comfortable there, except for being horrifically anxious, depressed, and riddled with health problems.
In my late 20s, I experienced an unexpected health crisis in which multiple organs shut down. Doctors couldn't give me any explanation for what would cause my health to take such a sharp turn. Instead, they prescribed me a cocktail of drugs and told me I'd have to be on them for the rest of my life.
I wasn't willing to accept this.
After seeing every type of specialist and holistic practitioner I could find, I didn't come any closer to fixing my health. I spent thousands of dollars on testing and treatment, could barely work or take care of myself, and still, no one could explain what was happening to me.
In desperation, I turned to mysticism.
My foray into energy medicine came about mainly so that I could cross one more thing off my list and be able to say that I had truly tried everything. And yet, to my surprise and mild horror, it had a dramatic effect on me right away.
If I had a choice, it would have been to be fixed by doctors. By science.
As a lifelong science fan, I wasn't thrilled that the only thing that helped me feel dramatically better was something that I couldn't rationally explain to anyone. If I could've cherry-picked the ideal way I would've liked to heal, it would've been by one of the 14 doctors I saw while sick.
As my body started to heal, I began training in various energy healing modalities in an attempt to make some sense of it. The benefits and understanding I gained in the process were too powerful to deny or keep to myself, which is why I'm here now.
I offer a unique, grounded take on energy work.
While my understanding of the human body and energy system has changed drastically since doing this work, I still remain a big fan of science. Energy work is best viewed as a complement to and never a substitution for traditional medicine or psychiatry, and I strongly suggest you use them if needed.
As someone who spent most of their life as a skeptic, I'm especially serious about integrity, honesty, and transparency in what I do and I want to work with people who value those qualities, too. Whatever it is you would like help addressing, I promise to show up fully and work diligently on helping you find the answer.
I'm a certified Usui Reiki Master, Seichem Master, and have trained extensively in alchemical and shamanic healing.
