My Transformation Story…

From a very early age I felt like I was the black sheep of my family. I was groomed to follow in my parents’ footsteps with the goal to live the American Dream.

Despite their best intentions, this mold didn’t fit me, and it wasn’t hard to figure out that I was rejected for my being who I really was and for what I loved to do most in my life. I pushed back against what was safe and secure and continually found myself suffering without support as I tried to find success first as a musician and then later as a healer.

How could I give myself permission to be powerfully me?

I wanted to live the life I was meant to live, not the life that someone else thought I should live.

Every time I unconsciously approached the boundaries that my parents (and their parents before them) had set, I was actively discouraged from continuing to follow my dreams. I felt as if invisible forces were holding me back and taking away my power.

 

I sought healing for the wounds that never seemed to heal, while at the same time I knew I was being called back into the magical world of Spirit that I entered when I was a child.

Shortly after learning to meditate I started to hear the voice of my higher self. This set me off on a long voyage of discovery through the worlds of high ceremonial magick, Wicca, and finally, shamanism.

Not only did I find there was more to the universe than meets the eye, but I learned that through intent and ritual it is possible to cause changes in the material world by changing the energetic world. As within, so without.

Following my inner guidance, I made my first trip to the Peruvian Amazon to take part in a plant spirit retreat. I had no idea what I was getting into: I was being called home.

My life would never be the same.

Healing through your shadow and getting to your core purpose is easier than you think. 

Perhaps you’ve been overthinking and overanalyzing what needs to be done next because you think you need to have it all figured out before taking action.

  • the blocks that are holding you from your dreams?
  • old limiting patterns and beliefs?
  • hesitating to know who you really are?
  • unreleased past traumas?
  • fear of success or failure?

You can rest assured you can achieve all these things and so much more. You can live the life you knew you were meant to live, flow freely, and have FUN again.

You know it’s time to make this happen.

I’m here for you.

Empowering Yourself

Fundamentals of Personal Empowerment: Free Video 

So often, new healers and empaths can jump into energetic work without creating the empowering environment necessary to stay safe, and to be deeply effective.

I have created a free video to help you tap into your intuition and learn how empowerment can change the energy around your personal journey.

This free introduction video will show you what it means to empower something, and why empowerment is important in making everything from simple tasks like space clearing to strengthening spiritual defenses more effective.

Serendipity brought me to Judy after a decade of western medicine failed me. Her facilitated healing work, led me onto a path where three years later my chronic health issues are mostly resolved and I am able to see illness as a divine act and a spiritual course correction.  As ancient healing modalities make a come back into the western hemisphere, it is hard to find a therapist with real depth. Judy is a true pioneer and of the highest integrity. One of her rare qualities is her ability to continue to stay open and evolve in her own journey and craft.

I am blessed to have her as a guide and friend. With gratitude!

Judy, you are one extraordinary healer. You are humble and very powerful. I referred to you as the ‘Big Guns’ when I couldn’t find others to really help me break through my struggles. You are a no-bullshit, real deal, mighty shaman. Your command of your work is astonishing. Your ability to navigate through the seen and unseen worlds is astounding. Working with you is a true and deeply healing experience. You are empowering of others, including myself. You are kind, compassionate, and non-judgmental. You create a safe space for deep healing work to unfold. In short, I trust you with my life, my truth, and my struggles.

I am so grateful and blessed to have had the honor of working with Judy over the past year.  Her skill, perfection, and adeptness are incredible.  Her insights are amazing.  Whenever I have had questions or concerns, she will get back to me quickly, and answers them thoughtfully and thoroughly.  My personal growth from this process has been awesome.  I attribute it to her as my spiritual teacher.  Our journey in life can be a bit bumpy at times, but that’s when we grow the most.  It is wonderful to have Judy there to guide me as I progress on my path.
