I hold deep, sacred and earth-based space, infused with the power of the healing plants, 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-journeyer on your embodied path of transformation and healing.
I weave the healing plants with many rainbow ribbons of potent healing modalities into a profound medicinal container which supports you in, reconnecting with the wisdom of the wild, remembering the truth of who you are and deeply nourishing your physical body.
My Germanic Great Grandmother was a Healer, chiropractor, herbalist, nutritionist and Astrologer who practiced ‘the nature cure’ and stewarded a healing center named after the Goddess Minerva. I am connected with my Celtic and Germanic blood ancestors. These ancient ways of strength and healing guide my life and inform my work, as do the Fae and the healing balm of the plants.
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, deep within our breathing dancing hearts and bodies, in the medicine of the magical realms of nature, in this exquisite present moment.
I came to the practice of holding healing space through my own personal healing journey.
Compounded generational and personal trauma and the subsequent lack of access to emotional warmth and connection, lead my young self into the arms of nature for my only solace. The plants and nature beings became my dearest friends and family. I believe they truly kept me alive. During my whole life, I have looked to the plants for reassurance, support, connection and guidance.
In my early teens, 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 and brought me what I so dearly needed. I have been profoundly blessed by deep soul connections and relationships with resourced people and plants, 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:
