Womanhood has many slippery slopes. We try to conform to the spoken and unspoken messages we receive about what it means to be a woman in today's society. Without realizing it, many of us are living our lives based in fear. A life based on other people's opinions and perspectives of who we are. Sliding down the slope of anxiety and depression is often the result. Committing to discovering and reclaiming who you really are, and choosing to live an authentic life is a terrifying act. You are risking not belonging, a whole host of judgement, and a lot of change.
You are also opening the door to freedom and the purpose of your life! You're opening the door to self love and compassion in a way that will surprise and delight you. As you move through your process, you can begin to tear out all the pages of your story that weren't written by you. You can begin to tell the story of your heart. Even if you're shaking in your boots you can be powerful and declare "This Is Me!"
When you choose to committ to yourself you also choose to stand up to the giants in your life. You are making a choice to lean into your fears so that you are no longer a prisoner to them. I can help you to face your demons and move into authentic feminine power.
As women our lives are saturated with judgement from others. We often hold detrimental beliefs about ourselves as well as other women. It is my job to help you discover what story you have been telling yourself about you! It is my passion and honor to assist you in creating an authentic one and moving you onto the path of your life's purpose!
“All the world’s a stage, And all the men and women merely players;They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts,” William Shakespeare
In the theatre world, actors have what is referred to as a“wide or narrow range” of characters they are able to portray.
Everyone is cast in a specific role by their family of origin. As we grow into adolescents we become choosey about who and what we identify with. It is at this point that we can become so fearful of not belonging to a group, that we deny parts of who we are from emerging. We carry the fear of judgment and not belonging into adulthood. We lose touch with who we are and what brings us joy and fulfillment.
The truth is you have a vast range of roles inside of you. You are so much more than you perceive yourself to be. When those exiled parts are rediscovered and nurtured they can emerge once again, giving you the privlege of living an authentic life. When you are living life in this wider range of roles, you are more equipped to discover your true purpose and move into your personal spotlight.
Given the right tools, not only is this personal transformation possible, it is probable! I will help you transform mentally, emotionally, and physically so that you are no longer a captive of fear, stuck in old worn out roles that don’t serve you. You will be an expanded, authentic, fulfilled, and ready to take on the world game changing woman!

Who are you? Who has influenced your identity? What do you believe about yourself? Are these beliefs accurate or the perspectives of others? Are you ready to let these self sabotaging thoughts go and jump into life?
Through Reiki core emotional issues can be brought to the surface and healed opening your mind and body to new perspectives of who you are and what is possible for you. As a women’s empowerment practitioner my reiki sessions focus upon assisting the client in healing from past mental and emotional traumas that are impeding their ability to move into a life based on their highest potential. When I speak of the word “trauma” I like to clarify that I classify this as any incident in your life which may have led you to manifest and maintain negative belief patterns about yourself that are not serving you and that are often not based in truth. Our minds and bodies buy into the perspectives of others and like a puppet on a string we begin to think and behave in the roles they have cast us in. A move to a different city, an emotionally neglectful parent, experiencing a parental divorce, having been bullied, etc. are all examples of incidents in our lives that can be traumatic and that often keep us stuck in a cycle of fear and stagnation.
During a Reiki session, I spend a few minutes asking clients how the session can best support them. Although I see many clients for anxiety and depression, each person experiences it differently; thus, an important aspect of treatment is to better understand personal triggers and areas of the body that are of concern to the client. After we talk, clients lie on a massage table, fully clothed. I place my hands in various positions on or above them, acting as a channel for the Reiki (or Ki) to move through, clearing and enhancing the energy throughout the body, according to the client's needs.
Although responses to Reiki vary from person to person and session to session, common responses include a deep feeling of relaxation and peace. Sometimes clients feel warmth or tingling, or notice visual imagery. During a Reiki session, the body shifts from sympathetic (fight-or-flight) mode into parasympathetic (rest and digest) mode. Parasympathetic mode is often referred to as the Relaxation Response; this is the state that your body needs to cultivate to heal. The session jumpstarts your body's own self-healing response—assisting the body in releasing deep-seated tensions, aiding in detoxification, and balancing mental and emotional states.
After your Reiki session you will be invited to vocally self express through words or sounds that reflect any shifts or insights you may have had during the session. This portion of the session is crucial in assisting you to increase self esteem, promote positive self regard, and move you towards personal confidence. Our throat chakras often become blocked when we are caught in a web of negative self thoughts. Through the opening of this chakra you are clearing the way to living an authentic and empowered life.
The Reiki session also allows you to bring about a beneficial shift in your attention. When we're feeling anxious, it's usually all we can focus on. The act of moving out of narrow, stressed attention is like relaxing a fist that's been clenched for years. In fact, we hold tension, emotions, and chronic anxiety in the body's muscles, and these are released during a Reiki session. After the session, I ask clients to notice any changes as their mind and body continue to rebalance over the next few days or even weeks. Changes might include physical shifts, such as more restful sleep or a more relaxed feeling in the body; mental/emotional shifts, such as feeling calmer in stressful situations or feeling more focused; and spiritual shifts, such as feeling more grounded or intuitive.
Discomfort later that day or the next few days is also good because it can mean the session is starting to help your body rebalance itself. Negative emotions that we've repressed and held in the body are sometimes able to come to the surface and release.
Setting aside time in your life for a session to relax and let go in this way allows you to recover from the accumulated physiological and psychological stresses of daily living. Reiki can give you the balance you need to put the anxiety in perspective, and thereby let it go. Many clients report that meditating is difficult because their minds remain active; they say that Reiki is an easier way for them to get into this meditative mindset, allowing the thoughts to slow and relax, along with the body.
Receiving sessions regularly provides deeper balancing and longer-lasting benefits (many clients book a session once a month). But this varies, so I always give my clients a personalized treatment plan. If you've been experiencing anxiety for a long time, consider booking three sessions as a starting point. As a rule, acute conditions tend to balance faster than chronic ones, so if anxiety is something you've had for a while, it will take a little more time to release it than if you've only had the anxiety for a couple of weeks, for example.
