About

20170922_155742.

I am an Intuitive Practitioner, Energy Medicine Practitioner, Yin Teacher and Metalsmith living in Portland, Oregon.

I bring a lifetime of experiences, studies and interests to this work. Being born into a long family lineage of healers, priestesses, shamanic practitioners, medicine people, I naturally followed my innate sensitivity, curiosity and abilities into the world of healing and of mystery.  I am honored to walk this path and remain humble in knowing we all possess these abilities. We just need to learn to listen and to allow ourselves to listen.

I’m a current student of the Blue Iris Mystery School and love combining this powerful work with my love of empowering others by helping them to trust the mystery and magic that is within and all around us.
