I am so very excited to be announcing that I have most recently been ordained to officiate weddings whether they be traditional to contemporary, from religious to a more secular presentation. You may be wanting to renew your vows, a commitment ceremony may also be an option if you are not legal to be married. Handfasting ceremonies, blending of the sand and many other options that may be of interest to your special day.
I will also have a venue available for small weddings as well as hosting bridal party retreats leading up to the wedding day. What lady wouldn't want a few days with just her girls doing what girls do before they marry.

Reiki (ray-kee) is a gentle, yet powerful form of energy medicine and a very effective method of natural healing. As an alternative healing method Reiki energy is often used as a complement to traditional medicine. Reiki can provide relaxation as well as relieve pain, reduce symptoms and accelerate your body’s own ability to heal. Reiki also helps in balancing your body’s energy ( chakra system) and aiding in releasing emotional blocks and stress.
Chakra balancing is the process of restoring harmonious flow of energy across the chakra system or energy field of your body. The purpose is to support a balanced flow that will sustain your overall level of energy. In your every day life, you are subjected to a number of activities, sources of stress and demands that result in fluctuations in your energy level.

Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) also known as Tapping focuses on resolving body, mind and spirit ailments by using your energy system of the body, while also bringing attention to thought processes that contribute to our every day stress and emotional problems. EFT can work by lowering cortisol levels and the body’s stress response because it helps to promote relaxation. It helps to manage tension in the body and worry in the mind. It is a self-help method that involves tapping with our fingertips on acupuncture points on the hands, face and body while focusing (temporarily) on an issue we wish to resolve. This can be done anywhere, at any time, and for many issues that bring on stress or uncomfortable feelings such as hurt, guilt, fear, or anger which may be affecting our experiences. Many people often report feeling lighter and calmer as well as able to breath more easily. I personally have experienced this technique and have found great relief as well as witness great relief amongst others.
In 2007 I completed all required levels of Usui Reiki acquiring the certification of a Reiki Master Practitioner.
In 2010 I completed my Spiritual coaching and counselling at Transformational Arts College in Toronto.
In 2015 I successfully completed Yoga Teacher Training as well as meditation. I will be offering guided meditation workshops as well as my favourite being Yoga Nidra/I-Rest meditations. Yoga Nidra is a form of meditation designed for modern day living. Everyone needs a way to feel ease when life gets challenging. Yoga Nidra helps you tap in to a place that is calm - even when life is not. Some people use it to relax when life gets busy. Yoga Nidra is a powerful form of consciousness achieved through deep relaxation, dropping you into a meditative theta brainwave state while remaining conscious and alert. It is a place where you can tap into intuition and subconscious patterning to maximize self-healing as well as consciously create the life you want for yourself. It helps to balance your nervous system and unwind old patterns to create healthier ones. Yoga Nidra is great for strengthening your resilience to deal with day-to-day life and to increase your energy. This meditation helps you restore balance, no matter what life throws at you.
In 2018 I completed Gabrielle Bernstein’s Spirit Junkie Masterclass 1 & 2.
In 2019 I completed Levels 1 & 2 in EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique). These two modalities are tools to use in energy work that are very beneficial to our bodies as “Your Body Speaks Your Mind.’
Energetic Healing addresses your body, mind and spirit as an integrated unit, rather than treating any of these levels separately. This healing looks right into the core of the problem, shifting your energetic patterns that keep physical symptoms, destructive emotions, life depleting habits and negative thought forms in place. Learn your body’s language of symptoms, and discover there is an extraordinarily intimate two-
way communication going on that affects your physical, your mental and your emotional health.
Current research shows that many diseases are caused by stress. What manifests as a physical ailment is often deeply rooted at the emotional or spiritual level. You often can heal your body with your mind and you can heal your mind with your body.
In 2019 I have also completed levels 1 and 2 in Applied Astrology with Debra Silverman and will be continuing on to my level 3.
