My extensive professional background in the mental health field has
given me the tools to help others navigate the choices life presents in
troubled or confused times. I worked in a local mental health hospital
for over 15 years, first working primarily with youth on the unit, then in admissions
doing crisis assessments to determine if there was inpatient criteria to come into the hospital. I
was a Crisis Prevention Master Instuctor for over 8 years, providing
training to hospital staff on how to recognize situations before they occur and interact safely with those around
them. I have also volunteered as a counselor on the Rape Crisis Hotline
through the Fort Wayne Women's Bureau.
I am a Reiki Master Teacher in Usui, Kundalini, and Lightarian Reiki modalities. I began my energy work journey in 2012, originally forming The Haven of Healing in my home in the fall of 2013. My healings combine both energy and shamanic elements to meet whatever needs of those who come seeking aid. As a life coach, I can help sift through the cacophony of options to ensure you walk your life's path; or, perhaps, for some the issue is finding your life's path.
I am also a Certified Massage Therapist. I became interested in massage after taking a class in Ayurvedic Yoga Massage (AYM) in India in February 2013. After returning to the states, I signed up for massage school in order to utilize this amazing modality here in Indiana. After graduation, I immersed myself in perfecting my craft, working at a high end spa in order to learn the art of what it means to give a relaxation massage. I've also been blessed with the opportunity to work closely with a very talented chiropractor, and have since become her main chiropractic massage therapist. She routinely sends patients to me who have difficult issues with which other therapists are unable to make progress, with the assurance I can help them improve form and function. hide
