I believe that receiving Reiki sessions helps people work through their stuck emotions, so that they can release the past and worry less about the future.
When people can acknowledge their true power in their own life, it can give them the life they truly desire.

Is Energy Medicine Important?
As a Reiki Master and an Empath, I strongly believe that we have become too reliant on the outside world energies to solve our problems or give us the answers that we are looking for.
Understanding that your energy is the single strongest force you have in your life, allows you realize that YOU are in control of your own energy - no one else. You decide where to place it. You decide how to use it. You decide what you want to create with it. It is quite empowering once you open up to it.
Did I Get Into Reiki?
My whole life I had picked up on energies before knowing what that really meant. I was able to “know'' where people hurt, which helped me when I was a trainer. Many times I was able to pick up if someone I was close to was having a stressful situation without being close to them. I often truly felt the physical pain that others described, as if it was happening to me. I had many conversations with people who were no longer with us before realizing that was the case. And I always thought people were able to have conversations with animals.
Being a sensitive person, I have always picked up on energy before I even knew what it was about. My feelings could be intense and ‘out of nowhere’ which was frightening when I was a child through early adulthood, so I held it all in and didn’t talk about it. I didn’t want anyone to know what I felt, saw and heard. It all seemed like it was too much to deal with, so I did what most people did and shoved it all down deep inside and tried not to think about it.
Take out the whole part with the poem.
When I was in my late 20s, I first heard of Reiki in the late 1990s. I had just gone through some difficult emotional and physical situations and a friend of mine suggested going for a session. I did and it changed my life. For the first time I felt like I had an energy that was hiding deep inside, a knowing, a spark that had been lost, that had been shamed out of me and it had been turned on. I was hooked. So I got my Level 1 Reiki not long after that in the year 2000.
As my training in Reiki continued, as I was able to connect to myself, others and nature in a way I had never experienced before. I would enjoy walks and hikes daily to release the tensions from my day and would become charged with Earth’s energy.
Often when I feel overwhelmed, Nature has acted as my security blanket and calmed me down, which is probably why I have been drawn to access this natural ability to connect with frequencies of Earth through Reiki.
Part of my love of nature is my love of animals, particularly dogs. I have always had a great connection with animals and spent a good part of my life invested in their company and welfare. I even lost a job once for defending an animal and I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Currently I spend my days fulfilled as an Occupational and Physical Therapy Assistant working with people who are trying hard to find out a new way of living to encompass health, happiness and hope.
I believe that our lives take us through a series of events that are meant to teach us lessons and what it means to live joyfully. Once I was able to accept who I am and what I am here to do, my entire life opened up. My hope is that I may be able to help you find your own energetic power to believe in yourself and create the greatest story of your life. Your own unique story.
