When my family and I experienced dramatic healings through Reiki, I was compelled to learn how to give this amazing healing experience to others. Since 2012 I have continually expanded to learn additional healing modalities in order to bring a unique healing experience to my clients.
Fully clothed under warm blankets and surround by soft lighting, your 60 or 90 minute healing sessions will be comfortable and relaxing. Through various hand positions, I move positive healing energy throughout your body to bring balance and rejuvenation. I am also an intuitive healer. This means I tune into energy that allows me to get to the root of the blockage or problem. My clients love to experience the depth of healing and understanding these communications bring to their healing sessions.

Health Recovery Specialist (coach), Cancer Recovery Support
I have always been committed to my fitness, but not always in the most healthful ways. I felt like I could out-work any bad food choice or drink and I believed exercising excessively would make me stronger and more fit. I thought being a vegetarian meant eating pretzels and cheese with some lettuce on the side. I thought depriving myself of food to lose a few pounds was the way to shed inches. I thought going to the doctor when I was sick to get medicie was the way to get healthy....never, ever did anyone ever talk to me about taking responsibility for my actions and outcomes of my own health.
By the time my second child entered our lives, learning healthier alternatives became more important to me. I ventured to find every natural, non-toxic remedy I could find in order to avoid illness. I got really good at "managing" our daily health so it was quite the blow when my Dad was diagnosed with lung cancer and I didn't have the solution at my fingertips.
As I dug deeper into my research on what the root of cancer is, what fuels it and what fixes it, our lives were drastically changed forever. I discovered integrative measures to incorporate into my Dad's treatment plan to help him avert side effects from chemo and radiation. The information I found along my Dad's way was life altering for my entire family. Frequently, I would find myself thinking - I could have saved so much time and headache if there were someone to guide us in creating my Dad's road to recovery. Cancer (and most dis-ease) is 85-95% environment and LIFESTYLE, leaving genetics only to contribute between 5-15%. A healthy life must be the result of a healthy lifestyle. There were so many missed opportunities to prevent this disease, but he just wasn't aware and wasn't paying attention to them. I had many sleepless nights, studying, researching and digging for any information that could make life easier for him and bring him to health. Why was it so hard to find information...answers...options? Why weren't the very therapies that could make my Dad feel good and live life easier available? My Dad was a whole being, yet only the cancer was the topic of discussion. Doctors practice medicine, they don't help you to create a recovery plan - this missing piece was costing my family so much valuable time.
Sadly, we were learning along the way and not all the information that we would discover was in enough time to make a significant impact on his condition. At diagnosis, he was told his only options were: radiation and chemotherapy. Unfortunately, neither provided the results we had hoped for. He needed more, he needed cancer care support. We weren't aware of the various other supportive options for cancer care. We weren't aware of programs that would help us ALL get through this diagnosis; patient and caregivers.
We didn't have proper support or guidance - this would have saved SO much time and confusion. I say "WE" because my entire family had to find ways to deal with this diagnosis. Each in our own ways because cancer changes everyone's life. Caregivers are impacted emotionally as well as physically when tackling this disease with their loved one. And I couldn't help but wonder, what if there were someone to help us that would help us figure out why he developed cancer and what how to build his plan of action to recover from this disease. There was noone to guide our family on how to help limit side effects, maintain and/or improve his quality of life or even mention alternative therapies to complement the traditional treatment he was receiving. We didn't have anyone to call to discuss appropriate integrative therapies that could have helped limit his suffering and extend his life, with enjoyable quality. We were on our own for support in every way; nutrition, detoxification, sleep, emotions, pain....and really, anything that didn't involve chemo or radiation. We needed a guide.
Something(s) in his body faulted and allowed the cancer to develop and there was no one helping us to discover this process. Beyond receiving a cancer diagnosis, he was given an expiry date. This welcomed FEAR and hesitation, along with lack of hope. I remember wishing there was someone to consult with who could direct us towards anything that could offer.....more. We continued on, doing the best we could with what we could find. Those six short months his life was predicted to last, extended to 4 years with the help of integrative therapies. Sadly, it wasn't soon enough for my Dad and he died from therapy related "Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome", not cancer. He wasn't done with life. He wanted more time with his family. Now, I am on a mission to make sure everyone who crosses my path knows they have options and there is supportive programming to help develop a recovery plan and take part in supportive care.
I didn't set out to become a cancer recovery coach. I didn't choose this profession, it chose me and I couldn't be any more thankful that I was open and ready to accept this opportunity when it presented itself. I have spent years in school studying and researching and mentoring (and studying some more) to stay up to speed on natural and non-toxic ways to support the mind and body strategically developing "plans of action" to find the best individual paths back to health. I guide my clients with knowledge, experience and tools to help each and every one of my clients shift from "cancer crisis" to "cancer control". I share information, resources and various health therapies to help them take responsibility of the recovery process and find their best route to well being and improve quality of life. I meet you wherever you are - on whatever path of treatment you choose. To each their own and we all deserve support and encouragement along our ways.
Theta Living offers services and advanced energy medicine therapies that lead to a holistically healthy lifestyle. We are here as a COMPLIMENT to whatever method of cancer care you choose, wherever you are in life! You will be supported in making efforts towards a healthy lifestyle - to heal from cancer, naturally.
Health means many different things to different people. As a child I thought health was simply the absence of acute or visible illness, but as I grew, the meaning became more complex.
Today I think of health as an overarching term that encompasses my physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellness. I feel healthy when I can run for a mile without stopping, but also when I can experience an emotionally painful moment without lashing out or burying my pain. I feel healthy when I meditate, and also when I purposely seek out and spend time with people who lift me up and challenge me. I have found that if even one area is out of balance, I have a much more difficult time attaining overall health; for me, this ever-changing act of balance is an integral part of life.
In 2015 I lost a dear aunt to cancer. She was a shining light, the center of attention in every room, and generous to a fault. At that time I was helping people improve their health through diet, exercise and meditation, but my knowledge about holistic cancer treatment options was very limited. I spent many hours researching various therapies, methods and protocols for her, but she was afraid to implement anything that wasn’t expressly recommended by her oncologist. (Her doc warned her against supplements and didn’t recommend anything other than chemo and radiation and, when the time came, hospice.)
I experienced a painful mix of emotions during the months of her diagnosis and treatment. On one hand I was honored that she would consider asking me for help (she was extremely private about her health) and on the other hand, I was hurt that she wasn’t able to utilize more natural therapies to treat her cancer or her chemo symptoms.
But on a deeper level, I understood. How can patients be expected to go directly against the advice they receive from physicians? Don’t physicians know more than we do? They have advanced degrees and training, specialized education and lots of experience. Why would we listen to anyone else?
Many safe options for disease recovery and general health and wellness available to us now, but doctors are often suspicious of the new or unknown and they pass this mistrust along to their patients. Is it because they don’t want what’s best for their patients? In most cases, no. Of course medical doctors want to help as many people as they can, but the tools they have been given are outdated and toxic and not keeping up with the paradigm shift of healthcare.
For my Aunt, a condition that had grown slowly and unattended for many years was finally irreversible, and yet the doctors insisted upon round after round of chemotherapy. Her last months were spent miserable, wracked with nausea and acute pain, and unable to care for herself.
My greatest frustration at that time was the utter lack of options presented to her. She was given repeated rounds of what the medical community considered the top treatments. Even after she was told she could not be cured, she still continued to receive treatment without integrative support to mitigate side effects or help to preserve quality of life. Instead of spending time and money enjoying life, being happy and comfortable, the very medications used to treat her cancer made her sicker, wreaked havoc on her body and eventually killed her.
How many people are going through cancer treatment who feel like they only have the treatment plan that their oncologists recommends? If they pursue anything else they may have to pay out of pocket costs or, worse, be “fired” from treatment.
Here at Theta Living, clients are given the one thing most cancer patients are denied: options. If I could have given my aunt the gift of Theta Living I would have. Even if she had still chosen to have traditional treatment, the therapies at Theta would have helped her feel better, physically and emotionally, and could have perhaps extended her time on earth with her family. Theta Living offers options; when it comes to cancer, we need as many as possible. We are not a treatment center - we are a wellness center: helping people to fell well.
