When I reached the point in my life when it was time to consider a career I looked out into the world and what was reflected back just didn’t seem to fit, nor have that magical “ding”. So I went on a journey exploring and following my heart.
I began at Saddleback Community College and took courses in psychology and human services. Through the human services program I became an intern at Diversified Counseling. This beautiful opportunity turned into a 5 year long experience where I trained under Sharm Luehmann MFT. I learned many things from this amazingly gifted woman.
While I was at Saddleback I discovered a modality called Soul Memory Discovery. When I experienced it my whole world opened up, I had finally found the thing I had been searching for. It not only helped me heal but allowed me to connect with myself in a deep and profound way. It prompted me to enroll at the Soul College for Spiritual Healing where I studied under Ellen Kaufmann Dosick, LCSW, who is the world master teacher of this modality. I became a Soul Memory Discovery Facilitator as well as an Indigo Spiritual Healer.
Feeling like I was just beginning to get a taste of what I had been searching for I enrolled in the California Academy for the Healing Arts. I spent four years at this school studying massage therapy, reiki, energy healing, energy anatomy and various forms of vibrational medicine.
While attending this school I continued my psychology training at a private university called San Diego University of Integrative Studies. I studied humanistic psychology, eastern psychology, and expressive arts therapy. My experience at this university was integral as I had to write a 10 page paper every 6 weeks. The supportive staff and professors encouraged me to write about the topics I was learning in class while incorporating the teachings of energy healing and vibrational medicine. As I simultaneously learned from both of these schools I was able to deeply integrate the theories, methodologies, and approaches to understanding & working with people. These papers forged the beginnings of the theory and elements of my work.
Upon the completion of my psychology program I was required to create a research study and write a 40pg paper. The study was designed to see if measurable improvement in levels of depression and self-esteem could be found by using the beginnings of what has now become Soul Alignment Healing. The positive findings from the study gave me the confidence to propel me into private practice which began in 2009.
