A little bit about me
I am a certified Craniosacral Therapist, Holistic Practitioner and Life Coach. For over 25 years, it has been my honour to help animals and people gently return to balance through compassionate touch; energy balancing; field work; and the healing properties of nature.
I use a variety of healing modalities in my practice, including: Craniosacral Therapy, Energy Field Integrations, Dolphin Energy Healing, Reiki, Tellington TTouch, and Flower / Vibrational Essences. The type of treatment given depends on the nature of the condition or issue being experienced by the animal or person being treated. I also offer Life Coaching as a way to help my clients move through the stuck places in their lives, heal unresolved grief and loss, and address life changes.
How I got here
I have always had a strong spiritual nature and a desire to be of service to others. At age 13, I learned to meditate after reading a book about the benefits of meditation. Meditation has been an important stabilizing and guiding force in my life. I am grateful for its kind and gentle support, as well as for the guidance it has enabled me to tap into.
As so often happens when we recognize and follow the signs and opportunities that life presents, over the years I found my way to courses, ideas and teachers that would change my life. There were times when I needed a nudge–or a big push–from the Universe to make necessary changes in my life. It has not been an easy journey. Fear has been both my constant companion and one of my greatest teachers. I have survived many storms and now I want to help my clients do the same.
My fear became my passion
Some of my dearest friends and wisest teachers have been animals. Ironically, I was terrified of cats and dogs when I was young. I was afraid to approach a house if there was a cat on the porch. I did everything I could to avoid a dog on the street. Even the thought of being near a large horse made me hyperventilate. Little did I know that helping animals would become my joy and my passion.
In what still feels to me like a divinely guided turn of events, one cat and one dog shifted my fear of cats and dogs forever. The cat was a wild barn cat at my grandparents’ farm. The dog was a stray in the neighbourhood where I grew up. I will forever be indebted to them for their kindness and for their ability to break through my fear to reveal their true nature to me. As for my fear of horses, it was three llamas and one amazing horse who shifted that fear.
Now animals bring me great joy and I cannot imagine a world without them. I feel passionate about helping animals feel better, move better, and live longer, healthier, happier, more peaceful lives. I am also passionate about protecting our oceans and the many marine beings who live within her, especially my beloved whales and dolphins.
Our shared bond with our animals
I respect the deep bond shared between people and their animals. We not only share a physical bond with our animal companions, but an energetic and spiritual one, as well. How we think, feel and act affects our animals, and vice versa.
This is why I love supporting both animals and people in my practice. When we are in a state of greater peace, balance and harmony, it positively impacts our animals. And when our animals are happy, healthy and peaceful, it positively impacts us.
I specialize in Distance Healing sessions for animals. This means that animals receive the treatment in the comfort of their own home while I provide the treatment from my office. In my experience, distance healing is the kindest, gentlest, most effective method of treating animals.
