My Education & Training
I’ve acquired formal training in various healing practices and am grateful to the many teachers who have illuminated the way.
I am a life-long learner and am constantly in pursuit of wholeness and of being the most joyful, loving person I can be. As I share in “My Story”, I feel that my greatest gifts derive from having transformed my suffering into self-affirmation and positive action. Moreover, in the process of healing myself from life’s adversities I’ve acquired formal training in various healing practices and am grateful to the many teachers who have illuminated the way.

An energy intuitive since childhood, I later pursued formal training with Master Intuitive, Kathy Reider of Intuitive Services Inc. and with Reiki Master, Jan Atwood, LLC. After working for several years with Kathy and with Jan, I earned my Reiki Master certification and further honed my innate intuitive energy reading abilities.
In addition, I am certified as an Integrative Life Coach with The Ford Institute, specializing in Jungian shadow work, and am a Holistic Stress Management facilitator with The Paramount Wellness Institute. Furthermore, I have a graduate certificate in Holistic Healthcare from Western Michigan University and have taught WMU’s graduate course on managing stress.
Finally, I hold a Psyche-K facilitator certificate, a 500-hour yoga teacher certification with 13 years teaching experience, and I'm also a certified Labyrinth facilitator with Veriditas, the world’s premier labyrinth certification body.
