I am a Shamanic Practitioner; I provide divination, soul retrieval, power animal retrieval and Psychopomp over distance (meaning I do the work over phone or zoom for anyone, anywhere) and physical/soul healing and house blessings and rituals in person for people in Southern California. I have been providing services professionally since 2018.
I have been exploring the world of Shamanism since about 2001 when I stumbled over Michael Harner’s book, The Way of the Shaman. Simultaneously, I met Richard Whiteley, the author of The Corporate Shaman who was on the Board of The Ken Blanchard Companies, where I worked. Life got busy with work and family, as it often will, so I had some stops and starts. I got serious in 2014 and did several workshops through The Foundation for Shamanic Studies. In May of 2018, I completed the Foundation’s 3 Year Program of Advanced Initiations in Shamanism and Shamanic Healing with Nan Moss and Elaine Egidio. I have supplemented my education with travels to Mongolia, and to Nepal to meet with Indigenous Shamans. I have also studied with Viejo Rivas in the jungle near Tamshiyacu, Peru where I was introduced to the wonders of the Spirit of Ayahuasca and other native plant medicines.
I come to my Shamanic Practice not as a traditional healer, as many do, but as a long-time professional coach. I am a Master Certified Coach specializing in leadership and management coaching. I have a Master of Science in NeuroLeadership from the University of Middlesex and am an avid scholar of social neuroscience.
