What I’m About

My Story

Simultaneously called ever more deeply into the Great Mystery, I am asked again and again to root more deeply into this world of blood and bone, water, stone, and earth—stretched further and further at the crossroads.

My whole life I have felt deeply. It has been through that felt sense that I have always been close to the unseen elements of the world. As a child, I lived within an intuitive knowing of the, often unrecognized, intelligence of the world around me. I was witness to the Other. Over time, I have learned to listen to this gift and use it as a guiding compass in my life. My journey to use my gifts of witnessing the Other in service of other humans ignited in earnest with a spontaneous eruption of kundalini that erased any lingering cultural doubts as to the existence of a world beyond the physical senses.

In the decade plus following this experience I would go on to train and practice in yoga instruction, massage therapy, energy medicine, somatic-emotional clearing and inner child work, and three multi-year “shamanic healing” and spirit-work trainings, as well as studying with root workers, indigenous healers and ritualists from around the world. I would have interactions with spirit allies, ancestors and deities that would dramatically alter my life and how I walk through the world. I would also come to learn of the practicing West African spiritualists that had been hidden within my bloodline, and develop more conscious relationships with these ancestors and our inheritance.

I am constantly honing these skills and seeking to deepen my connection to the unseen world. I aim to facilitate healing on as many levels and from as many perspectives as possible. If you are interested in working with me please reach out.

A watery depth of connectionwith a fiery heart and mind. 

With every initiation I renew my devotion to both seen and unseen, I step more fully into life. 

With each step on the path, I show up with my whole heart.

I am here.

I see you.

What is needed now… What is needed now?
I am here.
