Frequently Asked Questions

   “Not knowing what to expect, I went in with an open mind.  It’s one of those rare moments when you look back and high five yourself for taking the opportunity. Mind-body stress free.” ~F.T., Community Advocate



How will I feel after a session?

Some people feel immediately lighter after a session. Other people’s bodies may want to continue releasing emotional or energetic blocks for several days after the session.

In 2-4 weeks you may notice:

  • You are not as triggered by an incident that bothered you earlier.

  • You have more clarity regarding an issue you are working through.

  •  You may feel lighter, have more energy and more awareness of your feelings.


How long should I do Intuitive Energy Healing and Coaching?

It depends.

Some people want to work on very specific issues and can move to clarity in a few sessions.

I recommend that people who are interested in deep personal transformation have sessions on a regular basis.

For people who are interested in leadership coaching, I recommend 10-12 sessions.

In the end, you choose what kind of support you need in your life right now.


Is Intuitive Energy Healing and Coaching for me?

It is important to find a healer/coach who is the right fit for you. My modality focuses on using energy work to help you find clarity and balance. At the end of the first session, if you feel aligned with my style and would like to continue working together, I will invoice you the full rate. If you do not wish to continue working with me, I will offer you a 50% discount for this session.


I don’t know if I believe in energy work.

Everyone has a physical and energetic body. Western medicine traditionally focuses on the physical body. Eastern and indigenous medicines (e.g., Chinese, ayurvedic, shamanic) have long traditions of working with the subtle energy body including the meridians, chakras and energy field.

No matter what your religious orientation, energy work can be useful to you. I have a deep respect for the different ways people connect with their spirituality and have worked with people of varying beliefs (e.g., Atheist, Buddhist, Catholic, Christian, Hindu, Indigenous, Jewish). What is most important is to find a healer/coach who feels right for you at this present time.


What’s your background?

I have spent my life exploring healing. As a pansexual woman, survivor of childhood sexual trauma, teen mom and child of immigrants, I am committed to understanding my life’s experiences and finding healing for myself, my family, my ancestors and my community. I became a psychologist and an activist. I am a poet-performer and an energy worker. What I have learned in my own life’s journey is that in so many amazingly different ways, people do heal.

I offer Intuitive Energy Healing and Coaching to help individuals connect to their whole selves, mind-body-spirit. When we are aligned with our true selves, we lead with clarity, integrity and compassion.

In Intuitive Energy Healing and Coaching, I use the principles of energy medicine, psychology and ancestral healing to work with the meridian and chakra systems as well as the energy field of the body.

I have a M.A. in Counseling Psychology (UCSB), Ph.D. in Cultural Psychology (UCD) and a postdoctoral fellowship in Psychology and Medicine (UCSF). I am a member of the Association for Comprehensive Energy Psychology. For the past 10 years I have worked directly with grassroots communities to cultivate personal and collective healing and wellness. In this time, I practiced several healing modalities to heal my own traumas. I have received training in Bioenergy Balancing, have sat with a Women’s Shamanic Circle for four years and have certificates in Comprehensive Energy Psychology Levels I and II.
