CZT #36 - Certified Zentangle Teacher®

I began my love and passion of Reiki in 2017. I had been traveling on my annual trip to Sedona and went to a spa, as well as met a few local healers. They helped relieve my pain from chronic migraines and back pain that I had endured for so many years by using the healing power of Reiki.  When I got home from Sedona, I was still so excited and euphoric about the experience that I began to explore Reiki further and found someone local to do another session. She also was a Reiki teacher and my education began! At the time, I was seeking out Reiki to continue using on myself. I quickly began to use Reiki daily and noticed that I felt much better overall and in many other ways too.  I soon realized that my mood had improved greatly and attitude in life was so much happier-especially considering that I had just lost both of my parents. I decided that I wanted to learn everything that I could about this wonderful healing energy!

It wasn't long before I was able to share this great gift with others and soon recruited my family and friends for Reiki sessions.  I noticed a marked improvement in their health and their overall relaxation. I was so enamored with this new found energy!! I continued my healing journey and signed up for an Advanced Reiki Training Class. I completely changed my mind about sharing this wonderful gift with others outside of my family as by now I had become quite passionate with Reiki! I knew that I must receive the absolute best training available to me so I began my professional education Reiki training quest.  

I sought out teachers whom I could trust to take me on my mission to become one of the best Reiki Masters I could be. I soon discovered the ICRT (International Center for Reiki Training). Their long history of educating Reiki practitioners combined with the thorough curriculum impressed me so much that I signed up for not only the Master Reiki Training and Teaching program, I also re-took both Advanced Reiki Training and Reiki I and II so that I could become a Professional Member of the ICRT.  In November 2020, I decided to pursue my credentials to be a Reiki Master of Karuna Reiki® through the ICRT. It is an honor to say I studied with these Masters at the ICRT.

I began to use my years of professional training to treat clients locally in Morgan Hill and Gilroy. I am so happy to now be treating and creating in my Art and Reiki studio in downtown Morgan Hill. Sacred Dreams Wellness and Daregirl Designs opened in October 2021 so that I could share my passion, vision and wonderful gift with others!  Since then I have implemented many other treatment modalities along with Reiki in my practice such as Sound Healing, Tarot and Oracle Card Readings, Sage and Sweetgrass Ceremonies, and Crystals to name a few.  Additionally I have decided to carry quite a few Crystals and metaphysical supplies at my studio.  I hope to see you soon.
