What is your back story and vision for your business?

My first word was ‘light’ and that has been the ongoing theme in my life. I seek out light teachings, light people, and lightheartedness. My Intuition has always been my gps.  My vision goes along with my feelings.  If it feels right in my gut I go for it. I’m here to be a refuge and a light source wherever I can.

I am currently a Reiki Master/Teacher, Co-Host for Retreats and Classes, and a Certified Hypnotherapy Practitioner specializing in Past Life Regression.

I’ve always trusted receiving information outside of my five senses. I like to call it my first sense. As a young child, I was able to connect with my mother by  feeling  what she was thinking. She often tested this out by waking up at a certain time and seeing if would wake up at exactly the same time. She had an intuitive gift and I was happy to learn this way of communicating.  My mother’s parents passed away before I was born and she would think about them and ask for signs that they still existed somewhere out in the ether.  I always seemed to pick up on that and she believed I gave her the signs. At 12 years old, I developed mini regression hypnosis sessions for other kids at sleepaway camp.  It was always fun and natural for me.

Fast forward to my early adulthood, I was living in NYC and was working in a fast paced environment as an executive recruiter and also in sales for a specialty food company. I sought  out different coping mechanisms for stress and balance & discovered  Reiki in 1995. This gave me spiritual support, focus, direction, and a release from my hectic life.  Right after I was married, my mother passed away and I completely surrendered to fully seeking out the healing I needed and immersed myself in a variety of healing modalities. Meditation & Reiki helped me get through those years as a young mother building an Energy Healing Practice.

My vision for my business: In the western world, most people lose a spiritual side to them. They become disconnected from their own vibrancy  and feel depleted as they age. I love opening these doors for people to continue feeling radiant at any age. My business helps people have a practice of presence and learn how to tap into their own life force.

What is Reiki and how can it be a beneficial practice? 

Reiki is a  Japanese-Tibetan energy balancing technique using our body and Qi, or universal life force.  The practitioner places their hands lightly on the body to facilitate the healing process bringing the physical, emotional, and spiritual planes back to a state of well-being.  This connection helps the body innately heal itself and transform back to its abundant natural self. People can sense a feeling of openness, enlightenment, warmth, calm, and peace.

Where are you from originally and how long have you lived in town?  

I grew up in New City, New York and have lived in Ridgefield for 17 years.

One Thing People Would Be Surprised to Know About You…  

I did not get my ears pierced until I was 40 years old.

What are your favorite things to do in your free time?  

I like to work out, hike, pilates, go out to restaurants, talk to my friends and family, read and get my morning latte or matcha at Ross Bread Shoppe.

How has this community been instrumental in getting you to where you are now?

I have been able to work with so many mamas and other women to help them feel empowered, supported and connected.  I love how so many people in this community are interested in trying something new.  I have lived here for 17 years and am still meeting new people and making new friends.  There are so many people in this community who are seeking out good life skills and who also have a great co-operative “can-do” spirit.
