Modern Alchemy Healing Arts brings together my gifts of intuition and compassion, along with more than 20 years of practical experience in private practice, health spas, and corporate settings.
My impulse to serve is an inner imperative, a calling from my higher Self.
My intention is to hold a safe space where my clients can have the experience they need to move towards greater health and wellbeing.
My own inner work and personal transformation continues, for I recognise that the more whole and integrated I become, the more I have to offer my clients and the world we share.
My interest in health and healing began in my early 20's when I was recovering from substance abuse. During that time a combination of alternative therapies and psychotherapy worked best to address all aspects of my being from the physical to the spiritual. Through this work I cultivated a deep appreciation, love, and curiosity for the mind-body connection and the mysteries of healing.
In 1993 after years of self-exploration, spiritual study, and healing work, I moved from my home in Northern California to Austin, Texas. My first month in town I took a Reiki course during which I discovered my desire to help others change and improve their lives. Later that same year, I enrolled at the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School and began my massage studies.
Ever since, I have continuously pursued new educational and professional learning opportunities including training and certifications in the following:
May the moon and stars pour their healing lights on you.
Deep peace of a quiet earth to you.
