My goal is to help you identify and release problem energetic patterns/emotions and faulty belief systems that keep you stuck

We all have felt stuck in trying to reach a goal or drop an unwanted habit. We might have emotions that sabotage our move forward.  EVERYONE HAS BEEN THROUGH THIS--IT'S CALLED "CONDITIONING".  Our brains are too good at remembering the bad stuff and comparing new experiences to the old and bad stuff, making us think that we can't get past a behavior or reaction.  Our brain is just trying to protect us, but really, sometimes enough already, we want to get off of this train!  The good news is that it doesn't have have to stay this way. Once these emotional patterns and beliefs are identified and cleared you can choose how you want to see that nagging issue--and move on! 

It doesn't have be messy and tense. 

I will work with you at your speed, that's where my years of training comes in handy. I'm good at evaluating and determining what the best approach is for each person I work with.

I have helped clients who had problems with and reached new goals in:  relationship issues, sports performance, weight problems, creative performance, physical pain, and other issues. 

I'd love to meet and work with you, one-to-one, to customize an approach to work on your issue using traditional and advanced Usui Reiki, and Emotional Freedom Techniques (also known as "Tapping). I use these modalities alone, and in combination with each other. 

Reiki works by assisting to reduce stress, which in turn may create an environment within your body where healing may more easily be facilitated. Reiki is Universal Life Energy. As such, your body takes in the Reiki and determines where the Reiki is most needed.  The clients I have seen reported feeling more relaxed and feeling a sense of “good energy” following a session. I have successfully worked with people with physical pain, and emotional distress. Using advanced Usui Reiki allows the energy to be more specific to a wide range of issues.

Emotional Freedom Techniques

Official defintion of EFT

Known commonly as “tapping”, Emotional Freedom Techniques was created by Gary Craig.  it is a powerful self-help tool that you can learn in minutes.

It is called “tapping” as the person taps on acupoints on the head, face, and  upper torso (as used in acupuncture, but with no needles!) while bringing to mind a stressful event.  The negative emotions are verbally described  while using your own fingers to tap on the acupoint. Yeah, it's really weird looking, especially tapping under your arms, but it doesn't hurt.

After rounds of tapping  the body reduces the stress hormone (called cortisol), (source Dawson Church Psychology 2013. Vol.4, No.8)  reducing  reactivity to the stressor, meaning that you feel better and help you relax. This can help you deal more effectively with your issue.

Some negative emotions or stressors have been carried in the person for many years, leading to unhealthy behaviors or being “stuck” in a negative pattern around an issue causing avoidance of solving problems and moving ahead in life goals. Chances are if you are dealing with this type of issue, it's going to take more than one coaching session, but you can continue the work at home.

Once the negative core emotions and patterns are identified and cleared new, positive affirmations can be “tapped” in to replace them, freeing the person to move forward to feel better and create new, healthy behaviors.
