My Work

Happy 2020, everyone!

Many people have asked me about the style of work I do now, and I have to admit that the clichés of the holistic world make describing my work challenging. The best way to answer this is to break it down into sections.

Body and Nervous System:

CranioSacral therapy is a light touch therapy that targets the fascial system and central nervous system. It releases restrictions in the fascia and helps reset the CNS so that the body can more easily self-correct. People who live with chronic pain, anxiety, depression, PTSD, lack of vagal tone, and trauma, all benefit from this healing modality.

Reiki is a Japanese style of light-touch energy work that supports the client’s natural healing process. It works well with other forms of treatment to help calm the body, emotions, and nervous system.

Mental and Emotional:

Somatic Counseling focuses on the internal body responses of the client as well as the mental and emotional processing of trauma. This therapy is great for clients who have difficulty recognizing their feelings, or how their emotions affect their body responses. The work of Peter Levine, Bessel van der Kolk, Stephen Porges, and Michelle Chalfant, have greatly informed my practice.

I am LGBTQ+ affirming, and I work closely with this community. Together we address issues of (physical, mental, and emotional) trauma, neglect, anxiety, depression, PTSD, relationship issues, etc.

Psychoeducational Classes:

I teach classes that are designed to offer tools to handle life stressors. Some of these classes address the nervous system and Vagus nerve resilience, and others teach grounding and centering practices that help reduce anxiety and feelings of overwhelm. Classes are offered in Tupelo, MS, at Conscious Healing Therapies, and in Starkville, MS, at Soulflower Healing Arts Studio.

How you can work with me:

The beauty of my work is that sessions are designed specifically for each client, depending on one’s unique situation and needs.

If you would like more information, or if you would like to schedule time with me, feel free to email me at We can set up a free phone consultation so that we can determine how I can be most helpful to you.

Earth Medicine Workshop: Sacred Space and Right Relationship


“I was just sittin’ here enjoyin’ the company. Plants got a lot to say if you take the time to listen.” ~Eeyore

Do you have a desire to connect deeply with your land? Do you wish to strengthen your relationship with a particular area? Are you curious about the “spirit” that your land holds?

Sacred Space and Right Relationship is the introductory workshop in my Earth Medicine series.

Come join me Saturday, September 13th, at the Holistic Center in Tupelo, MS, and we will explore:

What Earth Medicine is
The meaning of creating “sacred space”
Understanding “right relationship” or “ayni” in relation to land
How to connect with the spirit of your land
How to trust the impressions that come to you
Developing a “sit spot”
Tips and tools for deepening your connection experience

and tons more!

This series of workshops is for you if:

you love trees, plants, animals, and the earth, and you desire deeper connection with them,
you are interested in shamanic tools for self healing,
you love ceremony and ritual, and you want to learn how to take your spiritual practice to another level,
you are naturally curious and have an open mind.

This series is not for you if:

you don’t particularly care for the “outdoors”,
you feel uncomfortable around alternative ways of expressing one’s beliefs,
you are looking for a shaman to help you with mental health challenges, (contact me personally if this is a concern for you, and I am happy to give you trusted referrals, as well as possible options for working with me)
you don’t like to explore altered states of consciousness or the non-physical.

Are you excited? Great!
