Certified Core Energetics Practitioner, Reiki Master, Transformation Coach
Founder & President, Energetic Awakenings
I began my personal journey in the 90’s while I was in college. I needed to learn to love myself. I was fortunate to work with a counselor who helped me to understand that I was ok just as I am. Fast forward 18 years after college. I had been in a loving relationship for 16 years, but I was not happy. I couldn’t figure out what to do. I finally found the courage to say I deserve to be happy and ended my relationship. This began my next big transformation. I enrolled in a class on Powerful Presence and also decided I wanted to attend a spiritual retreat. I found a retreat being held in the Poconos with an emphasis on claiming your joy and happiness. Seemed appropriate so I went and had an enlightening experience. At the conclusion of the retreat another participant said to me, “You need to go to Easton Mountain and attend the retreat Living Full Out. It will change your life!”
Wow!! He was right. Living Full Out was my first experience of a body based therapy. It helped me to access deeply held emotions and to begin to tear down the walls I had built to protect myself. I wanted more. So I did the retreat again and began to inquire with one of the facilitators about his training. Six months later I was enrolled in school. I have been fortunate to have many amazing teachers at the Institute of Core Energetics as well as incredibly gifted facilitators and instruction at highly respected spiritual centers and institutions such as the Esalen Institute in CA, Omega, Easton Mountain, and Shalom Mountain in NY, Kirkwood Retreat Center in PA, and the Life Coach Training Institute in San Diego, CA. I have also been privileged to have experienced excellent teaching on energy at the Chagrin Valley Wellness Center, University Hospitals, and Ursuline College.
Today, I am excited and privileged to bring this amazing work to Cleveland, OH through my private practice – Energetic Awakenings. Many of my clients initially contact me and say…
- I want to be happy.
- I feel stuck and don’t know which way to turn.
- I’m tired of fighting with my family and friends.
- I’m depressed and have extreme anxiety.
- I’m tired of being alone.
Do any of those statements sound familiar? If so, I can help! I offer my clients a safe space to explore what they really want out of life. I help clients identify negative patterns and blocks that prevent them from having the life they want to live.
Clients who work with me embark upon a personal transformation journey. Many of my clients state they learn to…
- Stand tall and proud
- Let go of the past
- Feel their energy and aliveness
- Discover their authentic self
- Love their selves
- Claim their power and their voice
Are you ready to claim the life you want? If you said, “YES!” then contact me…I’m ready to help you!!
