My business is a reflection of my own journey…
After graduating from college with a degree in Psychology, I made a drastic decision to travel to India for 6 months, and returned home a completely different person (to say the least!). I decided to change my career path from the traditional Psychology route, to a more holistic and ultimately spiritual approach. Upon my return, I moved into a local ashram where I lived as a sober & celibate monk for the better part of a decade, studying Eastern philosophy, Vedic texts, and Bhakti Yoga every day. I eventually received initiation as an ordained priestess from my spiritual teacher, Radhanath Swami. Shortly thereafter, I added a few more certifications to my belt and set out to share a blending of the Eastern and Western wisdom I’d learned from my many teachers along the way.
I now specialize in somatic trauma release and recovery. With the use of body work, breath work, and energy work, I aim to help my clients release repressed emotions and sensations stored within their bodies, typically brought on by unprocessed, intense experiences. My goal is to teach my clients how to heal themselves, and give them the tools they need to realign with their intuition, soul purpose, and highest Self.
