What drew you to this profession?
After having a rather radical spiritual awakening on 11/11/11, it took me quite a bit of time to get grounded in the energy that had literally come into me and embodied every cell in my being. The divine gift of healing came through in a larger-than-life kind of way, and because of that, I followed my soul’s calling and have been an alternative healer and massage therapist since December 2013.
How does your work differ from others in your profession?
As one client likes to say, “It’s a cosmic massage experience!” I have had experience working in both a medical setting and in several mainstream spas, but private practice is where I shine. I have added a depth of energy healing into my work. Now, with the addition of BEMER vascular therapy and medical grade tuning forks, it’s quite an energetic, spiritual healing. I am the only practitioner in Connecticut certified in The Alexander Method of Vibrational Sound & Energy Therapy.
What should someone expect from working with you?
I have learned to look for the root cause of someone’s injury, sadness or anxiety—connecting the body, mind and spirit. My sessions are very individualized, taking the necessary time to fully address the client’s issues—before, during and after our time together.
What changes do you have planned for 2022?
I also am an advocate for those who are trying to get and to stay sober. Being sober for 8.5 years, I have begun implementing BEMER vascular therapy programs in select alcohol and drug treatment centers. Additionally, I am passionate about helping families heal from mental health issues.
What is most important for Natural Awakenings’ readers to know?
I am here to enjoy this thing called life, as challenging and complicated as it may be these days—for all of us. I seek clients who are also seeking higher ground for themselves. I am drawn to working with folks who wish to bust through old limiting beliefs, in order to take back their power and live their very best life. I would love to be a source of refuge and healing for those in need of healing.
