I am a Soul Doula. I hold deep, sacred and earth-based space for the birthing of your authentic wild soul in your nourished and supported physical body. I am a mystic, medium, energy worker, bodyworker and herbalist serving as a co-journeyor on your embodied path of transformation and healing. I weave many rainbow ribbons of powerful healing modalities into a profound medicinal container for you to reconnect with the wisdom of the wild and remember the truth of who you are.
My Germanic Great Grandmother was a Healer and Astrologer who practiced healing and stewarded a healing center. I am connected with my Celtic and Germanic blood ancestors. Their ancient ways of strength and healing guide my life and inform my work.
I am a sensitive, neurodivergent, non-binary and queer human, with a brain difference which makes functioning in this fast-paced, linear culture a big challenge for me. This challenge is also my gift, for my neurodivergence opens doors to seeing what lies in between linear lines, beyond the rational mind and deep within our breathing dancing hearts and bodies, in this exquisite present moment
I came to the practice of holding healing space through my own personal healing. War shook the warmth out of my family for generations and left us unable to connect to our own bodies and emotions. Without connection, even to our own beings, we could not connect with one another and the inner traumas repeated themselves, and were inflicted on one another, over and over, leaving us all bereft, isolated and wounded. Compounded generational and personal trauma and the subsequent lack of access to emotional warmth and connection, lead to my young self turning to nature for my only solace. The plants and nature beings became my dearest friends and family. I believe they truly kept me alive.
As my neurodivergency, gender expression and sexual orientation began to emerge as different from dominant cultural norms, I was bullied and shamed by my peers and I formed the belief that to belong and survive in the human family, it was necessary to bury the truth of my being and conform. I believe this is the quintessential human wound, to not be able to live the truth of who we are. As a teenager and young adult, the pain of burying my true self caught up with me and I found myself in deep anguish and suffering, desperately attempting to run from my own broken heart by engaging in addiction, self destruction and abusive relationships.
My soul called out to awaken from the nightmare of disconnection, self hatred, addiction and isolation that I was living. The plants and the resourced people answered my call, came into my life and brought me what I so dearly needed. I have been profoundly blessed by deep soul connections and relationships with people and plants from many cultures who by offering warmth, welcome and connection, showed me my inherent gifts and infused me with more sane, integrated and loving ways of being. I am forever grateful to all of these precious friends. In the process of embracing my own profound grief and loneliness with compassion, diving into the shadowy depths of my own soul and reclaiming my own wholeness and expression of my own true wild self, I find my gift:
I hold deep, sacred and earth-based space for the birthing of your authentic wild soul in your nourished and supported physical body.

My spiritual healing sessions currently draw largely on my own blood ancestral wisdom and the gifts I was born with, yet I will always be deeply inspired, informed, influenced and deeply grateful to the Maya people who helped me come home to my healing gift and so I continue to honor them!
When you come to see me, the plants, benevolent helping spirits and I will hold sweet, strong healing space for you to find your way home.
