About My Path of Study
My journey of self discovery and healing began when I started learning how to practice Reiki during my Junior year of high school. I have been practicing and teaching this work for over a decade now and although my practice has evolved immensely over the years, Reiki has always been at the foundation of it all. This work completely transformed me as a teenager and helped set me on a much different path than the one I was on. I am endlessly grateful that Reiki found it’s way into my life at such a young age as it ended up shaping my life path in so many ways. I studied with my Reiki teacher, Berta Prevosti, in Stratford, CT throughout the rest of my time in high school and pursued my Reiki Master’s training during my senior year of high school. This training required me to work on hundreds of people before I had even graduated high school. I carried this depth of practice and study into college at The University of Vermont where I offered sessions by donation in my dorm room and my off campus house throughout the duration of school.
I ended up designing my own major and course of study at school, which was focused on Holistic Health & Integrative Medicine. I dove into a broad range of study that incorporated nutrition, psychology, herbalism, mindfulness, energy medicine, yoga, Ayurveda, anatomy & physiology, biology and entrepreneurship. I’ve always had it in me to forge my own path when the ones laid out ahead of me didn’t resonate… which has always challenged yet inspired me moving forward.
Since then I pursued a 200 hour yoga teacher training and dove deep into studying Eating Psychology & Mind Body Nutrition with Marc David and Emily Rosen. So much of the last decade has been focused on doing a lot of my own internal healing work so that I can guide others down their own path of healing. In the last 4 years since moving to Bellingham, I dove deep into healing my own ancestral wounds and patterning through Family & Systemic Constellation work. I have been observing and studying the way my teacher and mentor, Laura Widman works in this way and have began incorporating these insights and wisdom into my own coaching process with clients. This work has also lead me to deepen my studies of yoga, understand trauma on a deeper level, and explore inner parts work. I am currently in school for Somatic Body Psychotherapy & Core Energetics.
