i am delighted you're here. 

my shamanic healing practice is rooted in the conviction that we all have infinite capacity for growth and transformation.  not every question can be answered, and not every physical illness can be cured, but there is always potential for healing. 

in my practice, i address the aspects of illness at the soul or spirit level.  because the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual realms are all interpenetrating aspects of us, tending to the spiritual facets of illness plays an important role in holistic healing and overall health.  this can sometimes be the missing piece for an ongoing healing process or a life transition.

i facilitate a multitude of healing modalities, such as soul retrieval, power animal retrieval, foreign energy clearing, compassionate depossession, psychopomp, and cord dissolution in service of creating more harmony and vitality in your life.

wherever you are in the living story of your life, i welcome all of you here.

2020 women's wilderness rite of passage

i invite you to join me and my beloved colleague and fellow guide, katie asmus, ma, lpc, starting in April 2020 for this 10-month long journey of saying “yes” to listening more deeply to your own Soul, of listening to your inner and outer guidance, and ultimately of living your life with more purpose. through the support of the earth, a community of women* on their own intentional journeys, and the unseen world, you will be supported in listening to and more deeply trusting your own inner voice.

after 5 months of gathering virtually, we come together in-person for a seven-day wilderness quest that includes a three-day solo. following the quest, the group will meet four additional times to help you integrate the gifts of the journey into your daily life.

* i recognize that gender is a fluid continuum. please contact me if you are interested and wondering if this group is right for you.

illuminating interconnections

creating your nature-connection talisman

we are intimately connected to the natural world.  yet in our busy days and lives it is so easy to forget that we have innumerable allies in the more-than-human world.  when we forget, we can feel isolated or numb, and even doubtful that our allies exist. 


sometimes it helps us remember them when we have a physical representation of this sacred connection – something to remind us of who we really are.

When I am among the trees,

especially the willows and the honey locust,

equally the beech, the oaks and the pines,

they give off such hints of gladness,

I would almost say that they save me, and daily.

I am so distant from the hope of myself,

in which I have goodness, and discernment,

and never hurry through the world

but walk slowly, and bow often.

Around me the trees stir in their leaves

and call out, "Stay awhile."

The light flows from their branches. 

And they call out again, "It's simple," they say,

"and you too have come

into the world to do this, to go easy, to be filled

with light, and to shine."

i look forward to hearing from you!
