PSYCHOSPIRITUAL COUNSELING, BREATHWORk, & SHAMANIC HEALING
When we give ourselves the gift of a dedicated space to be heard, seen, and compassionately supported, major transformation can happen. I am honored to work with individuals and couples seeking somatically-oriented healing and integration, and draw upon a wide toolkit including breathwork facilitation, shamanic healing, meditative and awareness-based practices, and dialogue-based guidance addressing the full spectrum of being (spiritual, physical, psychological, and emotional). In this manner of approach, you are supported not only in gaining greater context for what’s surfacing in your experience, but the opportunity to do the profound work of healing and transformation – which generally doesn’t happen simply through talking and narrative-based work.
Sessions begin with a check-in regarding what’s happening in your life, followed by somatic work including breathwork journeying and/or shamanic healing. The breathwork process is a powerful modality for releasing held tension and trauma in the body, and opportunity to directly influence the nervous system and increase one’s capacity to meet the present moment without old defense structures being triggered. As a facilitator, I offer steady guidance and support as you meet what arises in your experience, and integrate shamanic healing protocols, hands-on work, and intuitive-based direction to support your process of release and integration.
For those clients who prefer not to engage breathwork (or for whom it’s not appropriate based on physical and/or psychological conditions), I engage shamanic healing techniques and presencing awareness to help release energetic blockages and return the system to a state of deep relaxation and calm.

REMOTE HEALING & READINGS
As a shamanic practitioner, I am honored to support individuals navigate challenging life circumstances through the framework of distance healing. This includes physical ailment, life changes (home, work, relationship), traumatic events, and general friction and confusion on the path of life.
While it’s natural to be skeptical of the efficacy of work done remotely, every individual has an energetic signature – similar to a WIFI signal – that can be read to gain insight on why certain symptoms and experiences are manifesting, and what's required to support beneficial shifts and integration. While reduction of 'symptoms' is often a common byproduct, the intention of this work is to offer guidance and context as to what's surfacing in your life, and to support you in meeting that experience with utmost compassion and understanding.
Remote sessions include a brief intake by phone or email (this is not a counseling session, but simply a description of your intention for support and relevant background info), and within a day or two, I'll conduct and record a “shamanic journey” in which I narrate something akin to an intuitive reading. The journey recording is sent to you (MP3 file) along with any follow-up notes of explanation or context, and occasionally, a ritual or some type of “homework” is prescribed to deepen the work. There is no set length for the journeywork (I keep engaging the journey until I'm told the work is complete), although they tend to average 30-40 minutes.
PLEASE NOTE: Once a session is scheduled, I'll email you as soon as possible to schedule an intake call. I am generally available to conduct the session within ONE WEEK after purchase, but if you have an urgent request, please contact me to ensure my availability meets your needs.
SCHEDULE A SESSION
Remote healing sessions can be scheduled by contacting me directly, or by purchasing a session via PayPal below (I will follow-up shortly to schedule the intake).
PRIVATE INSTRUCTION & COACHING
I selectively work with individuals as a private instructor and coach to support personal growth and transformation. This generally includes an assessment and implementation of a program incorporating yoga or other movement modality, meditation, breathwork, diet, and shamanic healing work, as appropriate. I also work with corporate executives and entrepreneurs interested in developing their proficiencies in the context of business leadership.
Please contact me to discuss your goals and intentions, and I will draft a customized program to best meet your needs and budget. This could range from a short series of private yoga and/or meditation sessions, to a more comprehensive program specifically crafted to support your goals. Sessions can be done in-person in Seattle, or via phone/Skype for other locations around the world.
