My Story

My healing journey began in the mid-1980s, when personal health issues prompted me to explore alternative medicine. Through this process, I became a devoted student and patient of diverse natural healing practices and studies. During this time, I also expanded my physical, mental, and energetic health by attending countless workshops on qi gong and various martial arts styles under grandmasters, masters, and teachers from around the world. For nearly a decade, I studied Wing Chun and attained assistant instructor certification.

Today, I enjoy a daily practice of self-Reiki, meditation, and gentle yoga. I am incredibly grateful to have learned (and continue to learn!) such empowering disciplines and wisdom, and incorporate these amazing tools into my practice and teaching. 

The Japanese word Reiki translates to "universal energy", and Shizen translates to "nature" or "a natural state." I'm inspired by the miracles of nature and its omnipresence offering gentle reminders of the present moment and our interconnectedness. It is through this connection that we can embody our wholeness and true selves.

Reiki Shizen represents a culmination of many years of unfolding growth and development. As a dedicated practitioner and teacher, it is my goal to share the transformative benefits of Reiki and meditation by offering personalized services, classes, events, and healing circles to help individuals unfold to a natural state of optimal health and well-being. We can do this!
