About Me

Hey y’all! I am a lover of nature and all of her creatures (dogs, especially) and I am grateful to be living in the Sacred Valley of Peru. I am an intuitive healer, energy worker and alternative therapist. I serve as a High Priestess and Sovereign Witch – my lineage and code are my own. I am humbled to walk this sacred path of medicine and magic and I am deeply devoted to the mastery of myself and my craft. I am honored to offer private healing sessions at my home in Huaran, Peru and via Zoom. My sessions are a journey within themselves. I start by creating a sacred space through deep listening and presence. I then give you my intuitive reading and share my perspectives and process with you. The energy work then helps to anchor these new understandings into the body and THAT is where the big magic happens xx I use Ritual, my hands and my voice to bring you into a deeply healing altered state. Every journey is different and varies from very relaxing and soothing to very intense and cathartic.

I use an intuitive weaving of Ceremonial Magick, Reiki, sound healing, crystal integration, cleansing herbal purification, trance hypnosis and a variety of other modalities influenced by my explorations of the Native American traditions of the North, Western Transformational Astrology and the many paths of Meditation and Yoga.

My most profound teachings and initiations, however, have been my direct experiences and personal transformation. I share what has been most helpful for me to heal my mind, body and heart from immense trauma of all kinds. From facing childhood sexual trauma, conquering raging addiction, fierce self loathing and brain cancer (to name a few)…  To my more recent journeys into the hellish underworlds within to learn the art of shadow integration. The modality and process that I have developed through surviving this wildly intense life is my medicine. It is my blood, sweat and tears. It is the alchemy of suffering into wisdom, courage and strength. I feel so honored to share this work that comes from my depths and it gives me more joy and fulfillment than I could have ever imagined. Thank you to all of you who have allowed me to be a midwife of your sacred process xx You inspire me to no end and bless my life in so may ways.

xx Longer background story and MRI photos below xx

Ever since I was a small child I was fascinated by anything to do with the magical and mystical. I was highly sensitive and could perceive things about people that I couldn’t explain or understand. I have memories of my friend’s parents opening up to me with tearful eyes and sharing with me the burden of their adult lives. I remember playing with my first tarot cards and reading books about witchcraft when I was about 12 years old. Being from a very conservative religious family, my fascination was met with deep fear and hatred. Being the rebellious creature I am, this only fueled my determination to find the truth about God and Life for myself. The idea of ONE way, hell and eternal damnation just didn’t do it for me. I went through my teenage years incredibly repressed and emotionally isolated. I continued my explorations of the occult in secret – and always felt within me this connection to nature and to the spirit realm.

In my early 20’s I became a raging alcoholic and drug addict. It was my way of numbing out – an attempt to escape from the years of repressed trauma that were quickly surfacing. I had become obsessed with the superficial and felt completely lost. Worshiping money, social status and cocaine binges.  It was not until I hit my breaking point of almost dying from overdose that I admitted how wounded I was. It didn’t matter how much I drank or how many pills I took – it was no longer keeping the pain dormant. As I detoxed myself I immediately began having spiritual awakenings and mystical experiences. Glimpses into the majestic powers of acceptance. Of letting go of the fight. I began the process of reclaiming my power from childhood sexual abuse and released years of shame, guilt, fear, grief and rage.

On the 5th day of a water fast I had the most profound mystical experience of my life. I was doing yoga in my back yard in Portland, Oregon and through breath I was able to enter a trance state for the first time. I was placing my hands on my body and intuitively sending light and chanting for healing. I allowed my body to BE MOVED in a way I had never experienced. I went into asanas I had never been able to before that and I was experiencing profound adjustments in my entire body. As I bent backwards I felt an explosion of light go from the base of my spine shoot out through the top of my head. I left my body and “woke up” again breathing hard and feeling like I didn’t know where I was. I looked down at my mat and remembered I was just doing yoga.. And then I noticed something I had never experienced before. All I could hear was the sound of my own breathing – and SILENCE. There were no thoughts. I felt complete forgiveness of all my abusers and those who failed to protect me. I felt devastating compassion for all of them and felt completely anchored in the realm of the highest cosmic truth. I was immediately able to perceive the transmission of energy between myself and whoever I was talking to and I began simply listening to people for hours at a time without saying a word. They would almost instantly begin crying and share their deepest despairs with me. As I listened without interrupting or even relating, I found that people answer their own questions when they hear themselves speak their truth. This was the beginning. The revelation that all of the answers that we search for, all wisdom, is already inside of us. That we all have direct access to it, always. I started to understand that I was to be a bridge for people to connect to the parts of themselves that they have rejected, repressed and made wrong. That my role was to hold a safe and loving space -free of judgement for others to reconnect with themselves and with Spirit. I was suspended in a state of mystical bliss for two months before I began to ground and integrate – this was a most confusing process, let me tell you. Over the next 3 years I met my first teacher who helped me learn how to manage my energy and to stay present, conscious and aware. I began practicing and exploring with my friends and slowly started building my practice. This is a very abridged version of this story, but I will continue to add to it over time.

My healing practice deepened when was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2010. . I had discovered a base ball sized tumor in my right frontal lobe through a seizure. I chose a path of natural healing.. One of surrender, love, trust and gratitude. Releasing my resistance and practicing acceptance gave me clarity. I realized that it was a gift. I realized that it was an opportunity to deepen my intimacy with myself, my body, my healing practice, and with Spirit.  I felt an unshakable peace and trust in my body.  After 6 months of rigorous cleansing on all levels, the tumor had shrunk to almost nothing..   It was a profound blessing and I am eternally grateful!

I am so honored to share the gifts I received through this powerful process and to hold space for the healing and awakening of our global and universal family. It is my desire to share my perspective and offer the tools that have transformed my life in every way.  One of my greatest passions in life has always been the art of listening with true presence and compassion. In holding a space of unconditional love, we invoke an unfolding of the wisdom, power and magic within..

Blessings, Love and Gratitude.
