In Her Own Words...
From great pain comes a great healer...
Or so my story goes...
I know how trauma breaks you down... it fractures the union of body, heart, mind, and spirit ...and it slowly takes you down, drowning you in the silently suffering. You see, I’ve spent my entire life in very close relationship to that fractured union...while healing from my own deeply in-bedded traumas.
Survivor. That's what I am.
Physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, mental abuse, spiritual abuse...I have experienced it since a devastatingly young age.
Which also means...
I have been on my journey to become a healer for the ENTIRE span of my life.
In 2nd grade, I started giving shoulder rubs to my favorite teacher on “rainy day recess,” she always responded by telling me my touch was magic. By 14, I was self-studying...reading massage books and practicing on my best friend whenever possible and I even took nutrition classes in high school.
At 18, I started frequenting local nightclubs and eventually found myself immersed in the underground music scene where dancing became my escape from the pain, depression, and trauma of a toxic life.
I went on to receive an incredible mind-body education, from the lessons and wisdom received living in a survivor’s body to graduating with a 4.0 from one of the top massage schools in the nation in 2001, and continuing on to become a skilled fitness trainer for Bally Total Fitness. By 2007, spirituality weaved into my work through my dedicated shamanic training as Kundalini Dance Priestess, offering an ecstatic dance practice that teaches how to cultivate and utilize your own ecstatic energy for personal awakening. I did a deep dive into my personal exploration of the healing powers of dance.
Over the last 10 years, I have been initiated into 3 shamanic priestess lineages. I am blessed to have had the opportunity to gain such a diverse base of knowledge working with many world-renowned mentors across the globe, as well as, the wide range of clients over the years...from the stay-at-home parent to Academy Award winners, NFL players, and million-dollar business owners. I support my clients with 1-on-1 sessions, as well as group programs, workshops, retreats, and other events.
A Seattle Native, after 13-years away, I’ve recently returned home ready to serve my community as a transformational healer, powerful mentor, and inspirational speaker.
