Sound Healing + Spiritual Guidance + Education + Spiritual Support
My practice is multidisciplinary -- with an approach that meets each person where they are. Spiritual companionship, sound healing and supporting presencing practices are the main components of session work. Sometimes art, movement and visioning exercises arise as needed.
I have had the honor of working with and learning from incredible teachers and healers. My work has led me to work with elders, inmates, children, newly weds, animals, peers, new mothers, couples, the dying, and the grieving and folks who are transitioning out of old habits, addictions, and pain. I’ve witnessed lasting change and transformation in my clients. The work is low and slow, and often not glamourous. Working with a trusted companion deepens our commitment to change and holds us accountable to the process. The path is often shrouded in mystery. I’m called to meet folks in the border spaces, see what’s there, and find ways of bringing what’s gleaned into usable, practical practice
Important to note:
I typically have hours for one-on-one session:
Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays. Occasionally other session hours are available.

The parts that make up the whole ...
Chaplaincy training has provided me with many tools for spiritual companionship and deep listening. There are times where it's important to be heard in a sacred container. The language of Spirit can sometimes be unfamiliar and unearthing. Illness, grief, great and rapid change sometimes accompany spiritual awakening, and it can be helpful to have a friend in this process. I serve as an inner wilderness guide, providing tools for you to navigate your experience, and most importantly listening to you with open ears, heart and mind.
This is typically a 60 to 90 minute conversation that is directed by you, held by witness and support by me. When needed, we will return to our breath, silence, ask questions, and employ storytelling. Spiritual Companionship is not therapy (looking at ones past and assessing past impact on present), nor is it coaching (solution seeking). Our practice aims to "enter into" the here and now with presence, and explore bringing the ineffable to more tangible practice in ones life through connecting with another -- both of which nurture peace, compassion, and true engagement with ones life. Sessions can be done in person, or over the phone/skype.
Sound healing is a primary aspect of my personal practice and session work. Being a life-long student of the voice and breath, it's my call to offer freedom and the potential of self healing through sound. I had the honor of apprenticing with Sandra Chaussee, a Shamanic Sound Healer. In addition, I have been taught some ancient techniques for creating vibrational alignment, which leads to ultimate freedom and happiness!
This work is profoundly deep. To walk this path of healing is to open yourself to infinite, generative energy that connects you with the inherent functioning of the universe. This work requires a willingness to go to the edges and border spaces, and enter into a realm of infinite potential. Nearly all of the worlds spiritual paths have creation stories that initiate creation with a sound! This may illustrate how potent sound healing is, and how working intentionally with sound helps you release and transform and blossom in spiritual consciousness.
Join me in playful exploration!
All sound healing ceremonies take time -- 1 - 2 hours, and are intensive, transformative and potent. If you have any questions before booking, please reach out by filling out the form at the bottom of the page.
Energy Work and Energy Management Education Sessions
My work is centered on listening to each client, honoring their needs and bearing witness to the process of unfolding. My philosophy and approach to healing is that we are built to heal ourselves -- and, we are an intimate, interconnected being that is nourished by closely working with others. The tools and practices offered are intended to be taken and explored, even refashioned as needed -- as we have agency in our own process and have inherent access to wholeness.
Remembrance of wholeness is amplified when we work together with clear vision, voice and presence. There are moments or seasons when it's helpful to have a clear and friendly companion reflecting back to us our own clarity, vision, energy and words back to us.
I've been trained in various modalities that assist me in offering tools for exploring the edges. My background as an artist and musician has actively shaped my practice, and has encouraged my trust in the process of companioning those experiencing grief, spiritual awakening, turbulence, or who just need fresh access to the deep well of the self. Sessions have a reliable rhythm, often returning to silence as medicine. We honor the mystic and in addition get into and bring alignment to the body.
Some things that might emerge, depending on a clients needs: Reiki, Earth Medicine and Journey work, Sound Healing, Movement, Yogic Breath, Chaplaincy/Spiritual Companionship, Guided Meditation (influenced by studying with Jackie Major), Silence, Prayer, Singing, Dance...Play!
Sessions are offered on a sliding scale basis. Reach out for more information.
If you have any questions, I welcome them!
