I was a sensitive child at a very early age, I found that I could "hear" animals, the wind and the trees "speaking"... and it surprised me that others could not. At the age of nine, I recognized that I held healing abilities when I comforted my step-brother, who was sick with a cough and fever. I instinctively put my hand on his upper back and said, "There's a lot of stuff in your lungs." He was diagnosed with pneumonia the next day and thankfully, returned to health.
I eventually became a public school teacher for young children. After several years in the school system, the Spirit World decided it was time for me to truly pay attention to my Path. I suffered a long, seemingly insurmountable illness and have not only survived near-death experiences but also feel that I am no longer the person I was before. I see how precious life is and that every moment has the potential to be a miraculous one. This is something I share with each client that comes to me for assistance. I feel especially called to assist those dealing with acute or chronic illness.
I have been trained by those who teach Core Shamanism in North America as well as those who have been trained by indigenous people in other cultures. Yet, the commonality of all shamanic societies is honoring our Ancestors and Helping Spirits. I honor the many ways of holding Ceremony that is shown to me by my Helping Spirits and Ancestors.
Being a former preschool and public school teacher, I welcome working with children. My appreciation of gifted as well as children who have been labeled with "special needs" is well-developed and runs deep. As a Sensitive/Empath, I honor the notion that each little person has special messages, gifts and precious Light to offer this world.
