intuitive + energy healer + behavioral health coach


the journey

I was born in Lexington, Kentucky where I learned a lot of what I needed to know about this world from my sweet grandmother and headstrong grandfather. I didn’t know I would grow up to be a spiritual guide, an energy healer, or a writer—but looking back now, it certainly isn’t a surprise.

Life started rocky for me early in life and with that I developed incredible strength and resilience. I had an unstable, traumatic, and wildly dysfunctional childhood. With severe PTSD and low self worth in my early adult years, I struggled with a range of destructive behaviors, addictions, and straight up bad decisions sending me into a shame spiral and crisis of faith.

I started looking for answers to big questions at a young age trying to piece together why my life was seemingly so different than the others around me. I dove into studying Comparative Religion and Spirituality straight off of getting a degree in Cultural Anthropology. I have always been fascinated by what drives human behavior and what shapes our individual and collective beliefs and mindsets.


While logically I started to understand my life in a spiritual context, energetically I had pushed everything down that I wasn’t equipped to handle at a younger age—all the trauma, abandonment, neglect, and shame. Physically my body started revolting against me and I developed an un-diagnosable auto-immune disorder. In the middle of my growing corporate career in the beauty industry, I had a full blown soul-crushing nervous breakdown.


And so I did. I quit my job, sold everything I owned, and bought a one way ticket to Asia. There in the jungles of Thailand, an ashram in Cambodia, and the beaches of Bali I started my soul-healing and teaching journey.

becoming a healer and spiritual guide

Looking back, there were so many clues that I was intuitively gifted and yet I had no idea that I was an Intuitive until I broke away from the modern world.

As a child, I was always able to read the energy, emotions, and feelings in a room. I knew what others were feeling without them saying a word. I could feel their anger, their sadness, their jealousy, their tension and I would adjust how I showed up to bring in grace.

I saw my first spirit when I was 16 years old. Sitting on the blue broken down couch in our two bedroom apartment, an elderly woman appeared in front of me out of thin air. The air in front of me literally started changing. At first it looked like white cigarette smoke between me and the tv and then it started to get thicker—moving and taking shape until it became an outline of an elderly woman standing directly in front of me. If she had a message, I didn’t want to hear it—to say I freaked out is an understatement.

Up to the point I left for Asia, I had several other experiences like that, but was too afraid to ask myself what they meant. I would mention to people that I was sensitive to energy—that I could feel the energy of people and places. To a select few I confessed that I knew spirits existed because I had witnessed them, but that was it. I didn’t think any further about what it all meant.

I was in denial to who I truly was.

I became an attuned and certified Reiki Healer when I was healing and studying in Cambodia. It was the easiest thing I’ve ever done and a truly enlightening experience to my own power as a conduit for spirit.

Coming back to the US, I became a certified Behavioral Health Coach under Dr Tracy Thomas and have worked for 5 years helping others in an integrative mind-body-spirit methodology. Over the last few years, it has become impossible to separate out my intuitive gifts from my work helping and healing others.

Throughout these last five years, I’ve been working intimately with mentors, healers, and world renowned spiritual teachers to sharpen my intuitive gifts. I believe we can only take people as far as we are willing to go and therefore see myself as a life learner always seeking out new layers of learning and understanding.

The more I’ve understood and embraced my intuitive gifts with the help of mentors and teachers, the more I’ve found that I can no longer separate the type of work I do from who I am naturally. I was given these gifts to help others.

my intuitive essence + abilities

I am clairvoyant, claircognizant, clairsentient, and clairaudient allowing me to receive messages in many ways from your energetic field, your spirit guides, the ascended masters, and your soul’s records.

I’m a nurturer by essence and deeply devoted to work with tender care and love. I will hold a safe place for you to explore.

I’m a natural reflector (human design). I have the ability to truly see and witness you wholeheartedly with non-judgmental compassion and grace.

I can step into your energy field when invited and given permission (I will not do it without consent), so that I can understand exactly what you need energetically.

I only work with people in present time. I don’t see, know, or predict the future—our future changes every moment of our lives, with every decision we make and is a highly adaptable blend of fate and free will.

I am not a medium. While I can see and receive messages from spirit, I don’t call on specific spirits at will nor is it helpful for my particular healing work. We each have a spirit team of guides whose only job is to help our souls become their highest expression. I work with your higher guides and your soul’s records to help support your soul’s evolution and growth. If you are looking for messages from late family members or friends, I would recommend Tim Braun.

If you’ve made it here, to this page, I hope you know that it’s intentional—you’ve been guided here whether it’s to spark a fire of curiosity, inspire you to make a change you’ve been putting off, or an invitation to do sacred work together.
