Welcome to Live With Intention!
I am honored you have shown interest in learning more about me and the gifts I have to offer. I am an intuitive energy healer and work with angels, guides and other supportive energies to assist others on their healing journey.
Life is full of challenges or what I like to call opportunities and your intentions set the tone for your life’s story. Growing up in the Pacific Northwest I spent a lot of time in the forests exploring the wildlife, plants and energies. I knew there was another level to life, a deeper connection to all living things. After my freshman year in college I married a Navy man and we had the opportunity to live in Japan, which is where I feel I became enlightened and made aware of my gifts. In the many years we lived there I visited the temples and shrines, and I experienced an unexplained awareness. I will never forget the energies I connected with at the Buddha in Kamakura, as well as climbing Mt. Fuji in the early morning hours to view the morning sunrise. These were true blessings and once-in-a-lifetime experiences and I am honored to have lived in Japan.
When our family moved back to the U.S. I received guidance from a spiritual counselor who recommended Reiki, which truly changed my life. During my first session I seamlessly connected with the energies, they felt natural as if it was already a part of me. A few months later I was attuned to Reiki Level II/Practitioner certified by the International Center for Reiki Training (ICRT) and started offering Reiki to friends and family. Through Reiki I started to receive visions, feelings and a deeper understanding that I was not aware of before. Reiki amplified my gifts and there was a dance of energies which came together. Since then I went back to southern California for additional training, and I am now a Usui Holy Fire Reiki Master Teacher certified by ICRT.
Being drawn to energy I naturally fell in love with the Tibetan singing bowls, and in 2018 I received my sound healing certification through MauSOULeum and the Academy of Reiki in Seattle Washington. In 2019 I started my own healing journey and attended the Biodynamic Breathwork and Trauma Release System (BBTRS) training held in Colorado. This newer style of breathwork allows one to connect breath with the body to release past traumas and tensions held in the body. During this training experienced spiritual expansion and knew BBTRS was something needed in the community, and I am currently offering BBTRS sessions. By combining Reiki and sound healing in most of my services, along with my own intuitive abilities, creates a powerful healing for the physical body as well as energetically on a cellular level.
You might be wondering how I ended up here in Iowa, it was divine intervention. My husband retired from the Navy and we moved back to his hometown. Living here in Iowa gave me the opportunity to return to college through Drake University where I received a degree in sociology with a minor in psychology. By trusting the process and listening to my own intuition, I was able to make connections which lead me to work with non-profits to assist those with barriers to employment. Whether I am assisting clients through classes, Reiki and/or sound healing or those through the non-profits, it’s the connection with individuals that is fulfilling to me. By allowing them to shine their light is very empowering and gives them insight to their own abilities to shift and change their own lives.
My experiences illustrate when you put your intention into something you will always get a result, just depends on what lens you are looking through. I’ve learned to ask if my intention is coming from Love or Fear which helps to keep me grounded and trust in the process. My gifts have blessed me on my journey as well as future endeavors and endless possibilities. Which brings me to why I’ve created Live With Intention, to connect with you and other like-minded individuals to serve, assist and inspire you and others to set intentions to live life to the fullest.
I look forward to connecting with you soon!
