For nearly a decade, I have worked with individuals seeking to distance themselves from problematic behaviors or situations, and in many cases, addiction. Some have come seeking a blend of everything from certified drug and alcohol treatment, to traditional spiritual healing, and first and foremost: transition recovery. My Shamanic work is rooted in Nordic and Celtic approaches, though it shares the base understandings of the oldest spiritual traditions.
With several years’ experience facilitating groups in several of the popular non-12 step, rather self-help, programs, as well as other peer-led, groups, I advance old modes of treatment with an expanded client-informed approach to online addiction recovery and other crossroads in peoples’ lives.

Since all of my sessions are already conducted via phone or digitally on a variety of platforms, I look forward to working with more people around the world as I wander.
