People have asked me how I became a Healer. Looking at my work history, it appears to be a real stretch. Just over 20 years ago, I was firmly entrenched in the world of big business. I held various jobs at software companies, assuming roles as Database Analyst, Product Manager, Business Requirements Writer and more. You get the picture. I could not have been farther from having a healing practice.
As far as how I got into Reiki and other forms of energy work-- I was led to it. I had health challenges my entire life, and mainstream doctors were quick to say nothing was wrong (as a child), or I’d get a pill (as an adult). No one ever explained the root cause, which always seemed odd to me. But I never really sought alternative treatments for myself. It wasn't until the late 1990s that I started looking for answers beyond the mainstream. I was looking for alternative ways to help my sister whose cancer had recurred.
Looking back, it’s funny how the alternative treatments I sought for loved ones ended up being the ones I used to heal myself. I would not have tried them out without a loved one’s illness as motivation. I became a Dowser to address a friend's migraines and other issues. I learned Reiki because I heard I could treat people from a distance, and my mom was halfway across the country, debilitated by a massive stroke. Ultimately, these practices helped me heal myself far more than my intended “targets.” This process of learning different alternative treatment modalities for others put me on my life path of becoming a healer (which is far more fascinating than writing business requirements!)
I am a Reiki Master, and being a Reiki practitioner is fairly “mainstream” these days, which I love. I am also a Master Dowser, Vibrational and Elemental Healer (through use of sound, crystals, oils, medicine wheel, etc.) These other alternative modalities are less mainstream, but as or more effective than Reiki alone. Therefore, when a person requests a healing session with me, they will receive the best of all I have to offer, in combination, completely personalized for the best outcome.
I have two main goals: I want to help people heal, and when they are strong enough, I teach them to heal themselves and their loved ones. Each person has an innate ability to be a healer, even if just for themselves. My work helps my clients tap into these abilities when the time is right.
Note: My work is complementary to medical treatment. Anyone with a medical condition is best served seeking advice from a doctor. Sessions with me are not a replacement for medical treatment.
