Since I was nine years old I knew I wanted to help people. I cared very deeply for people and had an intuitive gift of feeling what people's concerns were. I knew what and when things needed to be said to give them the wisdom and support to assist them through their struggle. As I grew up I began the study of Psychology. I studied two years in Arkadelphia (HSU), and close to two years in Little Rock (UALR), when I realized traditional psychology does not recognize and take into account the spirit of the individual. It is then I decided to transfer to a Buddhist founded psychology program at Naropa University where the individual is viewed holistically. I thought that I would graduate to become a Psychotherapist but this changed when I began experiencing the body awareness that comes through meditation practice. It became obvious that the surfacing past trauma I was facing in meditation and therapy was energy stored in my body. The energy needed a physical expression in order to truly heal. It takes a great deal of courage to look at yourself honestly and heal old wounds. I trusted and knew from my experience of meditation that all things that internally arise will eventually dissipate, giving me the courage to heal my past. Reiki facilitated a body experience of calmness, serenity, trust, and deep relaxation. After my personal healing work was complete I knew my life work was to help other's heal with Reiki. To address my client's mental and emotional wellness as well as their bodies wellness through energywork. I knew Reiki was to be my life work.
I know from personal experience it is possible to befriend every aspect within oneself, to heal ailments, and to achieve a state of self-love with self-appreciation. I want to share this with others now. I strive to be the Therapist that teaches by example; the one that walks the talk.
