Over coffee and the kind of deep life talk that tends to spill out in a cozy neighborhood cafe, a friend asked me why I began Arden Mind Body Energy. And I had to think about how to answer.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by the mind, body and spirit connection. And, though I rarely spoke about it growing up, I remember at an early age recognizing those feelings and senses I now see as intuition. Over the years, I’ve used these tools, like my intuition, Reiki and elements of hypnosis to help me move through many life experiences. But really, it wasn’t until 2006 when my first son, Max, died unexpectedly that I saw how truly necessary these tools were in my life.
And so, I guess I’d say I was really inspired by it all. The love, the healing, the sadness, the joy.
So, after nearly 15 years of working in corporate marketing and co-owning a construction company it was time to find my own balance, to reevaluate my life’s purpose and realign with my authentic self.
Today, I am an Usui/Tibetan Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher and a Certified Hypnotherapist helping others discover inner balance and ignite forward motion.
As for the professional details…
I’m not a doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist. I am an Usui/Tibetan Karuna Reiki® Master Teacher, and a Certified Hypnotherapist.
I am a Professional member of the Reiki Membership Association and an active member of the Northwest Reiki Association (NWRA), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing sessions, education and outreach programs. Among their many outreach programs, the NWRA’s unique partnership with Providence Hospital affords me the rewarding opportunity to volunteer to give Reiki to patients in the hospital’s Stroke Rehab unit.
As a certified member of the National Guild of Hypnotists (NGH), I am part of the oldest and largest hypnotism organization in the world. This certification is the most widely recognized credential for the professional practice of hypnosis and requires annual continuing education to maintain credentials.
I currently live outside Portland on a hobby farm with my husband, four children, dogs, chickens and bees.
