Let your mind unburden and your soul unfold
I can help you expand emotionally and spiritually through open awareness and connecting with your inner voice. I offer thoughtful, tangible support based in chaplain experience, prayer methods, meditation, spiritual direction, energy healing, neuroplasticity training, tapping, and aromatherapy.
Just as each journey is different, the pathway through that journey is also different.

Spiritual direction, or spiritual companioning, is a process of recognizing and listening to the movements of the sacred in your life. It is an age-old ministry of discovery and discernment of self and soul. I will walk with you on your spiritual journey—the path of unfolding.
Spiritual companioning can help you discover how the divine is present in your life, explore the direction of your life in relation to the divine, and learn methods of prayer, meditation, and mindfulness.
All life is sacred. The spiritual journey is a journey of self-discovery.
I am a certified Reiki healer (Level 1 and 2), Healing Touch practitioner (Level 1 and 2), and a Three Heart Balancing practitioner.
Energy healing, or energy medicine, channels energy through a person to effect positive and healing benefits. Energy healing helps restore and balance the flow of energy in the body. It activates the body’s internal healer to balance and increase relaxation and harmony.

I am a certified Level 1 & 2 EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) practitioner. EFT is an energy healing modality that taps into our subconscious and eliminates stress and neutralizes emotional pain. Tapping involves your fingertips contacting specific meridian points while feeling a charged emotion. Tapping clears the energy, and restores balance to the body’s mind/body/spirit.
