I am a life-long animal lover, an architect, a horse person, and a spirit healer.
My mare, Ziba, led me to explore holistic & alternative solutions, then to start a holistic horse store called Just Equus (www.justequus.com); and finally to explore the direct experience of shamanic healing and energy work. In retrospect, my much-loved, often challenging, & most incredible horse led me to find my true path.
I am ever so grateful to her! My Energy Healing practice is my life path and is in continual evolution and growth! At its core I practice Shamanic Healing. I have a background in Western Core Shamanism and have begun the path as a Mesa Carrier of the Andean Tradition. I am a Reiki Master and my Japanese Ancestral Guide has supported my Reiki practice. For in-person sessions, Hands-on Reiki + Energy Work, Masterson Method Integrative Equine Performance Bodywork (which I am working towards certification in as an advanced student) & Aromatherapy are employed. My skill lies in an intuitive feeling & sensing of the being on a physical, emotional, mental and spiritual level, combined with the ability to act as a strong connection between client and Spirit for positive transformation. I rely on this inner sight & strong connection to Source, to God, to guide the healing work.
Technologies such as Facetime or Skype allow me to connect with long-distance clientele and with powerful results. I often incorporate the making of a Crystal Grid (if guided to) and this helps to focus and amplify in person & distance work.
Essentially it is this simple. I facilitate and work as a channel for Spirit’s Healing. It is in collaboration with the client, empowering their own self-healing process. The physical work is supportive of this. I offer this work with pure intention for my client’s highest good, in line with their highest purpose, and ask to be the clearest vessel for Divine Guidance and Healing.
Shamanic Healing Practitioner
Joyful, Powerful, Divine! Those are descriptives of the nature & essence of a Shamanic Healing Session. Shamanic Healing is Divine Healing. I engage and communicate with Spirit and act as a conduit for Spirit’s work to be done which includes supporting the client’s healing processes in Mind + Body + Spirit. Shamanic Healing informs all aspects of my practice. It can so powerfully help an individual to shift long held patterns, to release foreign and heavy energies, to initiate beautiful healing transformation! I love to see the shifts in animals for they are so open to Spirit, to Energy, and they have no limiting beliefs. 🙂 I also love to work with people.

Reiki Practitioner, Master (3rd degree level)
I am a Reiki Master (Third Degree). Master refers to the capacity or nature of Energy that one channels when practicing Reiki, and not to the fact one is so very “Masterful” which I would not self-proclaim. I practice a pure form of Reiki known as the system of Usui Reiki Ryoho which is the traditional Japanese form of Reiki (closest to its origin) developed by Mikao Usui in the early 1900’s to support healing and personal development. Over the years in the US, it has undergone new developments under Western Practices. I wanted to first learn the pure form closest to its creation – Usui Reiki Ryoho is this essential form.

Masterson Method Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork, Advanced Student
I am currently an Advanced Student working towards my Masterson Method Practitioner Certification. Masterson Method Integrated Equine Performance Bodywork is an interactive method of equine massage in which I recognize and use the responses of the horse to my touch to find and release accumulated tension in key junctions of the body that most affect performance. In contrast to most traditional modalities, it enables the horse to actively participate in the process of releasing tension. Horses love this method as they guide the work and are able to assimilate adjustments in their bodies naturally.
Essential Oil Practitioner
Essential Oils are a wonderful tool in my practice. Please visit my fb Group Page: deTERRA HORSE to learn more about their benefits and use for Horses! Please refer to the Files Tab to read some key information. I only use doTERRA Essential Oils in my work as their purity is 100% and their quality are excellent.
