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?
As a highly sensitive person, I’ve always had the ability to pick up on energies even before I knew what was happening or what this meant for me. I could feel the physical pain that others described as if it was happening to me. I was able to sense where people hurt without touching them and this skill came in handy during my time as a trainer.
Sometimes, I could even sense when someone I was close to was going through a stressful situation, even if I wasn’t physically close to them. I had many conversations with people who were no longer with us, before realizing that they had passed away. I always believed that people could have conversations with animals, or at least know how they were feeling.
However, as a child through early adulthood, I found my intense and sudden feelings frightening, and so I kept it all to myself. I didn’t want anyone to know what I was feeling, seeing, or hearing. It all seemed too much to deal with and I had no one to talk to, no advice on how to deal with these experiences or how to sort it out, so I buried it deep inside and tried not to think about it.
In my late 20s, a friend suggested that I go for a Reiki session while I was going through some difficult emotional and physical situations. I went for a session and it changed my life.
For the first time, I felt like I had an energy that had been hiding deep inside me, a knowing, a spark that had been lost, that had been shamed out of me, and it had been turned back on. I felt like I had found a part of me that was dying to come to the surface, a piece to my puzzle and I was hooked. Soon after that, I got my Level 1 Usui Reiki in the year 2000.
As my Reiki training continued, I was able to connect with myself, others, and nature in a way that I had never experienced before. I found solace in nature and would often take walks and hikes to release the tensions from my day and become charged with Earth’s energy, like it was my own personal battery.
Nature has always acted as my security blanket and has been a calming, grounding and secure presence during overwhelming times. This is probably why I have been drawn to access the natural ability to connect with the frequencies of the Earth through Reiki.
My love for nature extends to animals, particularly dogs. I’ve always had a great connection with animals and have spent a good part of my life invested in their company and welfare. I even lost a job once for defending an animal and would do it again in a heartbeat.
Currently, I am fulfilled as a Reiki Master Teacher, Animal Reiki Practitioner Teacher and also an Occupational and Physical Therapy Assistant working with people who are trying to find a new way of living that encompasses, health, happiness and hope.
I believe that the events in our lives are meant to teach us lessons and show us how to live joyfully.
Once I accepted who I am and what I am here to do, my entire life opened up. I hope to help others find their own energetic power and believe in themselves to create the greatest story of their life, their own unique story.
