I obtained my MSW from UCLA in 1994 and I have been licensed since 2002. I worked primarily as a Medical Social Worker and as a Psychiatric Social Worker. I started exploring Shamanism in 2014 with Laura Beann, MSW, in the Bay Area. By attending several workshops with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies (FSS) and with Laura I learned the ways of a shamanic practitioner. I also participated in a group with Shamanic Practitioner Larry Kessler. Mujiba Cabugos, FSS Teacher and Shamanic Practitioner in Santa Barbara, is currently my mentor. I continue to attend workshops and groups to broaden my Shamanic skill set. Although I use energy healing in my practice, I am currently pursuing Reiki certification with April Pfender at Santa Monica Healing in order to complement my Shamanic practice. I use primarily FSS Core Shamanism, Nicki Scully's Alchemical Healing, and Reiki Tummo as healing modalities.
I am passionate about helping others learn to heal themselves by using Shamanic techniques, tools and philosophies as part of the therapeutic process. On a personal level, I have tried traditional psychotherapy and not until I found Shamanism did I feel my heart, mind, body and soul heal.
The sessions I offer combine Shamanism and traditional psychotherapy modalities however I also offer sessions that only involve Shamanic techniques. Our time together can be long-term or short term, the frequencies of the sessions vary depending on what clients prefer. I speak English and Spanish, I am available some weekends and also for home visits.
