When life feels overwhelming, reiki can help

I am a Karuna™/Holy Fire™ III Reiki Master/Teacher.

I have been studying, practicing and teaching Reiki since 2017 and use it in my art-making and workshops as well as healing sessions. Reiki (RAY-key) is a form of energy healing that promotes stress relief, relaxation and overall well-being. It has made a profound difference in my own life as well as many of my clients and students.

Schedule a distance session

reiki works at a distance

When done in person, a Reiki practitioner will gently place their hands on you and send you healing energy. Incredibly, Reiki also works from anywhere in the world. At this time I am offering distance sessions via zoom. All you need is a quiet place to lay comfortably for about an hour--a bed, couch, or recliner is perfect--with a place to set your phone or laptop for our zoom session. You do not even need to be on screen!

Sessions and workshops

Besides distance sessions, I am available for group session and often offer Art & Reiki workshops as well as teach Reiki classes.

Be sure to sign up for my email list (at the bottom of the page) to keep up with my offerings.
