My BIG Why 

I lost my mother to colon cancer when she was only 57 years old--I was 36 at the time. When I was 42, I lost one of my best friends to Sarcoma, another cancer. This beautiful friend of mine was one of the "healthiest" people I knew.  She worked out, and hadn't eaten one deep fried item since we were 18 years old.  Losing these two influential people in my life set my life's work into motion. 

  • I wanted to help people feel better.  

  • I want to do everything in my power to live longer than my mother... much much longer.  

This incredible journey has led me to heal my own body, become a licensed manual therapist, and MELT Method Instructor, study coaching, functional nutrition, and now all things blood!  I am like an Alchemist searching for the elixir of life ~ our best path to Optimal Health.

 

Today I combine my experience, my knowledge of the body, and my soul-full orientation to life to help people feel better, and transform their lives--for good.  

Who Am I? 

How can I tell you all of who I am by What I do? Or have done?

I am Multi-Faceted.  I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fiber Art, and a Minor in Women's Studies.  I have facilitated workshops, led community design/build projects.  I have led classes, and circles, and held space for transformation, inquiry, and reflection.

I am woman, girl, cousin, daughter, niece, granddaughter, business owner, advocate, full participator, health nut, science geek, writer, entrepreneur.  I dance, and drum, and tone.  I am tuned into the cycles of the seasons. I journal. I collage. I dream.  I travel. I play. I set intentions, and take empowered actions to get more of what I want.  I am in service to the healing of the planet, one action, one intention, and healing one beautiful soul at a time. 

Meander these pages and in each section I share my story, and my trainings.  Nobody wants to read a CV.  Enjoy the Journey, meander, watch, read, book an appointment ~ Let's Have a Heart to Heart.

I look forward to getting to know you.  

Welcome.

I have learned to lean into and sit with the dynamic tension of where I am, and the contrast of what I want.  

 

I have become a Master of Habit Change, and a Queen of Self Care.  

 

I have taken courses, and done the work.  I have walked through the fire & risen from the ashes.

Why Alchemy Wellness?

Alchemy is the ancient art/study of transformation. I love this as a starting place, a metaphor, analogy... Yes.  This is the work that I do as well.  

 

Ancient Alchemists:

  • Studied the Transmutation of Matter

  • Aimed to turn Metals (Life's Challenges) into Gold

  • Sought the Universal Elixir of Optimal Health

  • Split all forms of matter into a trinity of Body, Mind, & Soul.

Tenants of Alchemy:

Healthy Body ~ Calm Mind ~ Happy Soul

Healthy Body

The physical body consists of: Blood, Muscles, Bone, Connective Tissue, Water, and Microbes. Body is the structure that our soul inhabits--Our Space Suit.  I aim to rebalance health and physical imbalances, to optimize function

Practices to support Your Body:

  • Enhance Microcirculation

  • Enhance Neural-Fascial Communication

  • Release Trauma & Stuck Stress 

  • Get Bodywork

  • Learn to be Embodied

  • MELT

Calm Mind

In ancient studies of alchemy, Mind & Spirit are one. I think of this as the personality construct, or EGO. Eastern ideologies remind us that "monkey mind" and overactive thinking is detrimental for our health.

Nourish Your Mind Practices:

  • Slow Down

  • Breathe

  • Quiet In

  • Meditate

  • Practice Gratitude

Happy Soul

Soul is the essence that activates our physical bodies. Eastern traditions refer to soul as "The Observer Within." In ancient alchemical practices Soul is consciousness.

Practices to Nourish Your Soul:

  • Listen to Your Heart

  • Live in Alignment

  • Honor Intuitive Nudges

  • Choose to Remain Awake

  • Choose Soul-Filling People/Places/Things
