It has been a joy and a privilege these past 20 years to accompany folks in spiritual direction and to teach Reiki to over 500 people. I have witnessed folks grow in relationship to Source and to their healing gifts, their intuition and their creativity. I completed the Reiki Master training in 1998 with internationally-known Reiki Master Teacher Laurelle Gaia and completed spiritual direction training through the Spiritual Direction Practicum of the Archdiocese of Louisville in 1999. I opened a private practice integrating the two modalities that same year. I have a M. A. in Education from Spalding University and a Rank I in counseling psychology from University of Louisville. I furthered my studies through the Hakomi Method of Body-Centered Psychotherapy, the Matrixworks Group Leadership Trainings as staff, and Bert Hellinger’s Family Constellation Therapist Training. My heart’s work is helping people heal through Reiki and through the sharing of the sacred stories of their lives in spiritual direction. I have found Reiki to be a powerful yet gentle way for people to support their own healing journey, and I give thanks daily as I use Reiki for my own healing. I also am filled with gratitude for the monthly spiritual direction I've received since 1996.
