Somewhere in my mid-30s I found myself completely unsatisfied with life. I had constant digestive issues and was unable to eat most foods. My food restrictions made it hard travel, go hiking, and be as active as I wanted to be. I had a job I occasionally loved but mostly hated getting out of bed for every day. I felt exhausted most of the time. My mood swings scared me sometimes with their intensity. No doctors or experts had any suggestions for me other than medication and vague diagnoses. I wanted desperately to make changes, but felt completely stuck.

I knew that if I wanted a new life, I'd have to take some risks and attempt something different. Over the next few years I tried many alternative therapies such as ART, NET, acupuncture, yoga, essential oils, and more. Everything helped a little and I learned from each. However, it wasn't until I discovered Reiki, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), and Integrated Energy Therapy® (IET®) that my life changed rapidly. Together these energy therapies helped me find freedom from many of my issues.

Now that my body is returning to balance, I feel physically and emotionally better. I've worked through fears and limitations keeping me stuck. In 2019 I retired from 16 years as a public school librarian/teacher to start working toward something new. I have become a Reiki Master and an IET® Master-Instructor. I have had adventures in the US and Mexico. I've been dreaming of a life that doesn't involve a 9-5 job or staying inside. I'm determined to maximize the things that I love to get the most joy out of my life. I'm still not sure where I am going, but I am definitely on my way. Harmonious Renewal has been born out of my passion for energy work and my desire to help others step out of their limitations and discover their own purpose for life.
Many practitioners do IET® , Reiki, and EFT as separate and distinct practices. You sign up for the session you want and that is what you get. I prefer to be a little more flexible since your needs will change as you travel on your healing journey. Together we talk about your goals, discuss what might be holding you back, and then use the energy therapy that will be most effective. You are ultimately in charge of your own healing. I am here to offer these tools to get you there. Together we will work to listen to your body and find renewal.
