ABOUT ME

My Story

My journey of healing began in 2012 when I left my marriage, my business, my job, and my home to begin the search for happiness, purpose, and meaning.  My search took me to India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, and South and Central America.


Throughout the last several years, I have studied at the feet of many enlightened masters.  I was initiated into a Shakta Tantra lineage where I learned about sacred ritual and embodiment of the Goddess.  While apprenticing with shamans and medicine practitioners, I learned how to heal with master plant and animal medicines and shamanic practices as well as how to hold space in medicine ceremony.  I attained a 500-hour yoga teacher certification in Nepal with Dr. Chintamani Gautam, began assisting his teacher trainings in Nepal, and also developed my own Yoga Alliance certified Yoga Teacher Training program. I became attuned to Reiki, trained with a Tibetan singing bowl master, went to Thai Massage school in Thailand, and even became a singer and musician and have shared musical offerings all over the world!

I have studied with many masters of tantra, mainly in the United States, India, Nepal, and Southeast Asia.  As one who is passionate about pelvic health, I have taken many courses on yoni egg therapy, pelvic floor health, womb healing, womb wisdom, sensual awakening, and tantric and Taoist techniques to balance sexual energy.  

In 2019, I completed an intense Goddess Embodiment and Women's Circles teacher training with international tantra teacher Monika Nataraj and was initiated as a Priestess of the Earth, Moon, and Sky.  As we are continually cycling with the moon and governed by this energy, I also help my clients return to the remembrance that our optimal health will return when we remember to spend time in union with Mother Nature, Father Sky, and Grandmother Moon.

In the fall of 2019, I attended a priestess pilgrimage to all of the sacred sites in Egypt with Monika Nataraj and Amma Sophia Rose and tapped even more deeply into the Divine Mother energy, the star beings, and sacred geometry as well as receiving more training in the priestess arts and sound healing.

Recently, I have been a regular guest as a "medicine woman" on the Center of the Universe radio show.  I also am asked regularly to speak at women's circles, online training programs, and yoga teacher trainings.

Along the way, I have kept up my nursing skills and have continued to focus my nursing work in acute care settings as a trauma critical care nurse and cardiac/open heart surgical nurse.  I also worked for six years as a cardiac rehabilitation nurse.

As I learned to heal myself, I also learned what is missing and needed for real healing and began to develop my own intuitive way of helping others heal.  What you will experience is a result of everything I have learned. 


What makes my practice so unique is my ability to hold you in a space of non-judgment, unconditional love, and complete presence.  I have a relationship with the Divine Mother, Pachamama, who I call on to flow through me so I can transmit healing love and light to you.   My deeply intuitive healing nature enables me to feel into the spaces where you need to be held and I will teach you methods on how to meet me there, which is absolutely necessary if you want to heal on a deeper level.

I have experienced much trauma in my life...sexual assault, physical trauma, the death of my beloved partner, miscarriage, divorce...and I have experienced shame, guilt, grief, darkness, depression, anxiety, and worry.  I am so grateful for all of these experiences as they showed me the root causes for dis-ease...physical illness, unhealthy relationships, emotional imbalances....all are a result of the illusion of separateness and a profound disconnection to our own divine nature.

I feel now that I have been able to heal some very deep wounds...ancestral wounds, wounds of my childhood, wounds that were embedded in my DNA.  My introduction to quantum healing enabled me to clear old patterns and rewire.  I have experienced a massive shift and am happy to say that I have found what I was seeking...a deep love for my own Be-ing.  I have fallen deeply in love with my Self.  I feel a clarity and lightness that radiates in all directions and I feel perfectly balanced and whole.

I want you to experience this freedom!

I want to give you the tools you need to navigate through darkness by becoming your own light.

I want you to experience your divine sensuality and sexuality and be wild and in your fullness!

Allow me to hold you in loving embrace and help you open to deep expansive orgasmic joy and pleasure!

Haux, Amen, and Aho
