alchemical Healing Sessions
The alarm goes off.
You pull the sheets over your head, hit snooze maybe one, two, three times and finally roll out of bed reluctantly, not quite ready to start your day.
The demands that lay ahead of you put you in a mental fog and it takes all your might to put one foot in front of the other as you make your way to your closet.
You unwillingly get yourself dressed when you’d much rather stay in your pjs and binge watch Scandal on the couch all day.
You pull your hair up in a messy bun, dab on some under eye concealer, pour a giant cup of coffee, and scarf down a few morsels of whatever you can find in the cupboards before rushing out the door to fulfill life and work obligations.
You spend your day reacting to the people around you and the events as they unfold without much thought, and the thoughts that you do have that are running on repeat likely aren’t too pleasant.
You’re living your life like you’re on a lifeboat in the middle ocean with no rudder — you're lacking clear direction or a plan of action for how to live life the way you desire.
The wizarding world of your mind is in a dark place because you’re feeling disconnected and disenchanted in your day-to-day.
You feel like you never get what you want and are just going through the motions of life each revolution around the sun.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
You have both the power and the capacity to operate differently.
You can choose to live more consciously and with intention to seek out a series of opportunities that will lead you in the direction of your dreams.
Within you are the tools to tune into what you really, truly want and turn those dreams into reality.
Do you remember wishing on a star as a little girl?
Well, good news — there’s an even bigger and better way to get your wishes granted and become your own fairy godmother.
You can use the magic within yourself to get clear on what you want to co-create in your life and transform your deepest heart’s desires into material reality.
You have the power within you to rise up out of the ashes like the beautiful Phoenix that you are.
You can rebirth yourself as the truest you there is and take up all the space you need in this world so that you can share your gifts and talents without apprehension.
And I'm here to show you how.
With dedication and effort, you can overcome troubling circumstances, self-doubt, and inhibitions; establish healthy physical routines in mind and body; and seek success in the areas of life that you value (think: relationships, finances, career, the quest for truth, security, adventure – you name it, you can manifest it).
When you get really clear and conscious on your goals and set impactful intentions you can shift gears into the fast lane towards your dreams.
The best part is that by working with the Universe you don’t have to force it — it will happen naturally if you follow your intuition and take inspired action.
When I meet new people who don't know my back story, they tend to see me as the healthy, well adjusted individual I am today.
What they don't see is that I'm a white sheep, or someone who’s thrived despite growing up in and being surrounded by dysfunction and dysfunctional people.
Over my lifetime I've had to face the abandonment of a parent, cope with losing my childhood home and many of my belongings in a fire, witness the dramatic effects of alcoholism and mental illness on several members of my family, and repeatedly watch many people I love get in their own way of receiving help and healing.
Most recently, I suffered the loss of one of my younger sisters who was never able to get the help she needed and deserved and turned to substances to heal her pain instead.
Because of the turmoil I experienced as a child and young adult, I felt lost and confused about my life's purpose. I didn't have the right people or tools to help me make sense of things and recognize that there was a different way of living.
I became an adult way before it was my time, and spent many years of my life being serious and responsible without knowing how to let go and have a little fun.
My perfectionist tendencies took over because I felt like the only way I could get by was having a firm grip of control on everything and everyone. I had a hard time accepting help because I didn't trust anyone else to take care of me.
I grew disconnected from myself and, sadly, I didn't feel entitled to enjoy life.
I thought that everything had to be a struggle because that's just the way life was.
Over the years I've struggled with self-worth issues, social anxiety, disordered eating and overall disdain for my body, stress related IBS, childhood trauma (that's extended into my adult life), and the limiting beliefs and stories I'd created in my mind to "protect myself" that I've had to work diligently to overcome.
I was afraid of making commitments because I thought I was doomed to be left by those I grew to love.
I kept myself unattached without realizing that in order to fully experience love you need to love with your whole heart and not hold back out of fear.
Fortunately, something deep inside of me awoke about 7 years ago when I stepped into a holistic fitness and healing studio in southern MA.
Not only did I relearn how to love my body and have a healthier relationship with it, but my eyes were opened up to a path of healing on a mental, emotional, and spiritual level I never knew existed.
I began to explore what intuition was and how to access it, and quickly became a Reiki practitioner. This helped me step into trusting myself and trust that things were unfolding as they were meant to.
Life wasn't happening to me, it was happening for me.
I discovered meditation and mindful movement, and was surrounded by other women who I could share these gifts with.
Around this time I was also introduced to the works of amazing humans and teachers like Louise Hay and Wayne Dyer, who were also white sheep, and saw the glimmering hope that it was possible to create a different life than what I grew up knowing. I learned about the power of thought and that how I perceived my experiences matters.
When you're conscious of your thought patterns you can change them so that you no longer get held back by the darkness that clouds your past.
Through the healing arts and working with helpful practitioners, I've seen first hand how life-changing it is when you can choose to bring love, compassion, and forgiveness to the people and situations that have hurt you, and how keeping it all to yourself will continue to keep you stagnant.
I developed a wonderful relationship with my (now) husband and felt what it's like to explicitly trust someone with my whole heart, hopes, and dreams.
I learned how to mother and nurture myself so that I could step fully into becoming a loving mother to my son and ensure my wounds don't get passed on to him.
I created my own community of supportive people to lean on during challenging times since my nuclear family isn't able to fill that need for me.
I've also discovered how to become fully rooted and confident in myself, my values, and my personal beliefs so that I can stand tall and grounded in the face of fear and uncertainty.
I've come to realize that while healing can be extremely painful and challenging, that it's still better than the alternative, and that no one has to go through it alone.
I believe that I've gone through all the life experiences that I have not to allow others to pity me, but so that I could rise up and help those who can't necessarily see a clear way out for themselves.
I'm really good at being with myself and others within the uncomfortable parts of our journeys because I believe that the only way through is to allow what's holding you back to come up and out.
I'm a professional space holder for others going through the thick of it, and have made it my mission to be there to help you get unstuck, too.
What is an alchemical healing session?
An alchemical healing session is a coaching session where you and I dive into what's going on in your life deeply and honestly, and work together to identify and overcome the obstacles standing between where you are and where you want to be.
As you begin to process the raw material within your life (relationships, past and present life experiences, traumas, etc.) you're able to shed old layers and beliefs that inhibit you from living the life you want to live. Without that period of processing and moving through it you'll continue to stay stuck right where you are.
As you peel back the layers to learn who you really are, you become empowered to own every sentence of your story and use it as fuel to move forward instead of staying stuck dwelling on the past.
This isn't a simple, straightforward path, which is why so many of us feel stuck and stagnant more often then we feel content and at ease about how our lives are unfolding. Choosing to discover and heal what's not working is like an initiation and a rite of passage into a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
It's not easy to acknowledge when things aren't working, but it's the first step in your transformation.
This approach isn't about striving for perfection, but instead is about working with tools like reflection and your own inner wisdom to distill down to what really makes you tick and what matters to you.
You are the alchemist here.
Since each person is so unique and made up of their own raw materials, every session is tailored to you and addressing your current needs and goals.
My job is to hold space for you as you unearth and accept what's holding you back (limiting beliefs, unhealthy relationships, unhealed mental and energetic wounds, etc.) and help you work your way through them to the other side.
Transformation and true change isn't instant, and healing is hard work. It requires you to be willing to sit with your discomfort because you have to feel it to heal it, and I believe that no one should have to do this on their own.
You have to be ready to fully discover and acknowledge all aspects of yourself - both light and dark - in order to step more fully into alignment with your Spirit.
You must be willing to show up and do the work with consistency, patience, devotion, and an open mind and heart.
As a Reiki Master, I often include Reiki healing during our sessions. Other practices and modalities that help me help you get in touch with your intuition include tools like tarot and oracle cards, meditation to help ground and connect our energies, and any additional intuitive guidance I may receive for you during our time together.
In my practice I've found that many people feel like they aren't intuitive, but that's not quite the case — we're ALL intuitive. However, cultivating that connectedness to yourself takes time and practice, so I'm here to help you connect the dots.
We'll work together to:
fine tune your connection with your intuition so that you have the skills and confidence to continue working with it on your own.
Break the chains of old habits, cycles, and limitations you're experiencing so you can write the future you desire.
Heal what's lingering that no longer serves you so that you can bridge the gap between where you are and where you long to be.
Create action steps to help you achieve your goals in your own time, at your own pace.
You're the sorceress with the almighty magic wand and you get to bippity boppity boo the shit out of life by connecting more deeply with yourself, healing what's holding you back, and stepping into a more enlightened and powerful space so that you can reclaim what's already yours.
You are the expert on you.
Think of each session as a screenshot of your Marauder's map to living an enchanted life filled to the brim with magical moments and more meaning in each day.
I am not a therapist, counselor, or medical doctor, but I am a woman who's lived through a lot of internal and external challenges and have committed myself to my own personal growth and development.
I'm also currently enrolled in a life coaching program to further my studies and enhance my abilities to serve you.
As I've navigated through my obstacles and worked on healing myself (which is never finished), I've felt the call to help others do the same.
I know there's hope even with all the muck in your mind and chaos in your world, and I want to help guide you towards your inner light so that you feel less alone. When we heal ourselves we also help to heal the world around us, and I can't think of a better reason to get started on your healing journey.
The bottom line is that although I do consider myself a healer, I'm not the one actually doing the healing — I'm simply the facilitator who's here to witness you as you heal yourself.
Are you ready to commit to answering the whispers of your soul?
Are you ready to making lasting changes in your life and cultivate a sense of true belonging?
Are you ready to let go of what's holding you back and expand into your greatness for all the world to see?
If so, I'm truly excited to work with you and grateful you've chosen me as a companion on your journey. I promise to the be Hermione to your Harry.
