Who I Am and What I Do
I believe that the challenges we overcome in our own lives help us to better serve other's along their path.
I didn't realize it at the time, but the hardships I've endured were not roadblocks but stepping stones placing me in the direction of my higher purpose.
I first started channeling energy when I was only eleven or twelve years old.
I am fortunate to have been raised in a holistic minded family; my father, a chiropractor and my mother, a massage therapist. So as you can imagine, my exposure to alternative practices were normalized at an early age.
During one of my parent’s sessions that I was present for, their energy therapist sensed the pain in my left knee. She gently provided me with simple instructions that I continued to use for pain relief for the next decade or more.
It was tools like this among other support systems that carried me through some of my darkest days that I would later on experience.
During this time I did not always recognize the importance of these gifts, but relied on them in a casual and intuitive manner.
Like many practitioners, I have lived a full life in other careers before settling into this one full-time. I guess you could say I hit the ground running, traveling and experiencing the sweet moments life had in store for me beyond the roads of my small town.
I received my B.S. in Wildlife Conservation, Animal Management with a minor in Psychology and a M.Ed. in Environmental Education, Curriculum and Instruction. These degrees carried me to the depths of the rainforest in Costa Rica, Belize and Panama where I lived and worked with some of the most amazing fauna among landscapes that still visit me in my dreams.
When I returned to the U.S. I spent some time on the other end of conservation working for the federal government in the name of human health and safety. The confines of my 9 - 5 did not sit well and it wasn't long before I was on my next adventure, as a professional nationally traveling model.
But it was through all those years that the world of energy therapies pulled me back time and time again.
The catch was that my captivating stories of wanderlust and serendipitous events always seemed to be sprinkled with some sort of ailment. Whether traumatized from serious accidents or beaten down by a sickness, I couldn't figure out why my storybook kept filling in the pages with chapters like these.
This sent my parents and I searching. Because of our tireless efforts, I have experienced and enjoyed too many modalities to list. Many, if not all, reside in my regular self care practice as well as recommendations I am now able to share with others.
See, this wasn't a new escapade for me as much as it was returning home. Both physically and metaphorically; I was returning to my beloved hometown within a field that I had never truly walked away from.
Throughout the journey I mentioned above, I originally became certified in my first energy therapy to help myself further. It wasn’t until those courses were complete that I realized this gift is meant to be shared with others searching for a better life.
From there I began building my resume and “bag of tricks,” adding in the beautiful abilities of multiple modalities. I find resolve within this knowledge, and feel it is crucial to empower my clients to grab the reigns for themselves.
It's my belief that no two people, or even two experiences within one person, require identical methods to ground, center, align and elevate themselves.
That, in my opinion is the beauty of it all - to know that every moment, every individual deserves our highest respect for we are all unique; and that is our power.
Throughout my journey, I have stumbled as much as the next person. But within every ailment, heartache, trauma I discovered not only my strength but a burning flame of resilience, grace and humility.
As a practitioner, teacher and coach I am constantly realizing the significance of guiding client's towards their own intuitive realizations and the gravity of our intention.
It is my hopes that one by one we all understand the value of connection. With ourselves. With Mother Earth. With the Collective. And with this ever-expansive, nurturing Life Force that we are blessed to hold the keys to.
Full Circle Energy Therapies is the fruition of all of these avenues coming together for me. It is the connection of every independent piece of my puzzle that brought me back. The irrefutable awareness that all trails lead us home to ourselves.
As a passionate therapist with an alternative, heart-based approach I am dedicated to helping my clients move through a wide range of transitions in the most efficient and transformative way possible.
Each treatment is specifically tailored to the needs of that individual to make sure they receive the approach that works best for them.
Offering my services to both people and pets has been one of the most rewarding choices I could have made.
I look forward to joining you and your loved ones along your path, and thank you for being a part of mine.
Love, Light & so much Gratitude,
