Over the years I've honed my own art and craft of healing modalities to offer a holistic approach to mind/body work. Because I offer such a range of modalities, I like to keep it simple when booking an appointment and let the flow of our sessions unfold naturally. I prefer to work within a 90 min session as it affords me the time to slow down, really tune into your body and for your nervous system to respond, sinking deeper and integrating the work.
Every session begins with a check-in about whats been coming up for you and any intentions or goals you have for our time together. Most sessions look like 30-60mins of therapeutic dialoging/coaching with the remainder of the time spent receiving bodywork/energy healing modalities to integrate emotional shifts into the physical body.
Because I blend so many modalities together, any given session may combine any of the following:
Curse + Thought-form unraveling
Energetic Hygiene + Tools for Empaths
I believe plants (herb infused body oils, tinctures, teas, aromatherapy, flower essences, etc) and gemstones can be powerful allies and medicine and will often incorporate them into our work together and/or suggest take home remedies.

"A healer is someone who facilitates another person in realizing their inherent wholeness, regardless of symptoms or states of being. Being a healer means promoting healthy feelings, actions, thoughts, and beliefs in a client without compromising the same within themselves." -Vanessa
I specialize in holding safe and sacred space for clients with anxiety and trauma and especially for other practitioners in the healing arts field. For the work I like to do, I remain very present to the needs of your whole being. I work slowly, tuning in to the natural rhythms of your body and allowing it's innate wisdom to guide our sessions. Too often in the medical field we are invalidated and forced to become our only ally. My approach focuses on fostering your self-knowing and encouraging your connection to self. You know your body/mind better than anyone, my role is simply to help you remove the obstacles in your way.
My work is primarily hands on. As I palpate and treat I am also tuning in intuitively. My goal is to honor the spirit residing within your body. We will only ever go as deep as you are ready for. As we work together, I will sometimes receive intuitive messages about holding patterns in your body/energy field and employ any number of techniques to integrate them with you.
This is the cornerstone of my work and offers deep soul healing in a nurturing way and is an invitation to lovingly incorporate the fragmented or shadow self.
Earth Medicine & Ceremonial Work
My journey and role as healer has taken me from a very western clinical approach into the more spiritual and dynamic realms of the healing arts. My classical training taught me to assess and then treat according to my diagnosis of the situation. As my skills have deepened, I realize the body is it's own best healer and is vastly more capable of expressing its needs than I am at "fixing" them. Instead, I listen to how your body and energy field unfold into the invitation of safe space.
I will often offer guided journey work, personal ceremony, personal altar building, cord cutting, energetic balancing, compassionate depossession, and curse + thought form unraveling.
Energetic Healing or Clearing work is in every modality I practice. I define this work as clearing the energetic charge around a trauma/imbalance/core wound/ancestral wound so that you may begin doing the more difficult work of excavation and examination of heart and mind.
I believe energetic healing has an important place in the world and can be very beneficial as a "dust off" or reset as often as we need it -AND- energetic clearings are a beautiful first step to healing. If the core issue(s) of your energetic imbalance is not addressed and integrated, this work merely becomes a band-aid.
In cases of needing more than a "dust off" I will include dialog and support around core issues so that over time, you will learn to notice what causes your energy to shift and how to integrate those things into healthy patterns.
Therapeutic massage and injury treatment was my first love as I entered into the healing arts field. The foundation to all that I offer today began with my result based, detail oriented and thorough bodywork. My offerings in this area include myofascial release, marma points, deep tissue, treatment work, trigger point release, silicone cupping, visceral (external manipulation of the organs), and intra-oral (internal manipulation of the jaw muscles).
Like clouds blocking the sun, wounds, current or ancestral, have a way of blocking the best and most genuine versions of ourselves. The healing lies in the distinction that the sun never disappeared, but is only hidden.
As a certified coach, I offer sacred space to explore your own heart and mind in a compassionate, safe, non-judgmental environment. My approach is centered around self-love and acceptance of the whole self.
From a grounded place, you will learn tools to become an observer of your triggers instead of being the reaction their cause. As you develop the "witness" you will learn to take back your power and gain control over how life situations impact you.
Craniosacral theory holds that health is innate in every cell in the body and aims to reconnect the body with its natural healing potential.
Craniosacral work involves the bones of the cranium, the sacrum and the flow of cerebrospinal fluid traveling from the center of the brain all the way to the sacrum. This work is both precise and subtle in it's approach as my goal is to listen or feel for any disturbances in the flow of cerebrospinal fluid by the movement (or lack thereof) of the cranial bones and make adjustments as needed.
This work is excellent for treating nervous system dysfunctions, stress, sleeplessness, headaches, acute and chronic injuries, jaw pain/TMJ, tension/pain in head/neck/shoulders, and an overall increase to general wellness.
While this work is very subtle in nature, it can also be very profound. Some say the breath of life enters the physical body through the cerebrospinal fluid. As I tune into this rhythm, more often than not, knowledge of your life patterns unfold and are made available for me to dialog with you in order to remove energetic blockages.
The Chakras are subtle energy centers within our bodies, each resonating at different frequencies and are associated with different endocrine glands, emotions, physical locations, and functions of the body.
I offer chakra work two different ways. If you want a retuning or energetic reset, I will do a chakra balancing that incorporates guided meditation, affirmations, crystals + gemstones, aromatherapy and sound healing with quartz crystal singing bowls to activate and clear each Chakra. This is a lovely centering and grounding practice focusing of the positive flow of energy. We generally do not access core wounds or do deep work here as there are 7 energetic centers to cover and I feel it can be overwhelming for one session.
Commonly, and within the scope of one session, we will work with one chakra as it relates to what is currently up for you. This focused work allows the time necessary to safely access and process trauma or core wounds. We will often incorporate the vibrational healing tools mentioned above with more focus and attention.
I use quartz crystal singing bowls to introduce deep resonating tones to both the physical body and energetic field. You will feel as any imbalances or blockages are moved through you as cohesive sound waves comb through your energetic field.
The bowls offer a very soothing meditative state, allowing the nervous system to rest and regenerate.
I also use weighted tuning forks directly on the body as it efficiently moves deep tissue congestion, inflammation, and stagnation.
Sound Healing work is especially good for those who feel "stuck" as it literally moves the blockages through vibration.
According to Ayurveda, we each have our own unique body/mind constitution based on the system of elements (ether, air, fire, water, earth), season, and life stage. What is medicine for some, may be poison for others.
Our modern lifestyles can throw us out of balance quite easily, effecting our sleeping and eating patterns, digestion, immune system, peace of mind, and general lifestyle routines.
Through discovering your unique constitution, we can determine what foods, herbal support, and lifestyle routines are best suited to keep you your most healthy and happy.
