My Story

My name is Michelle; thank you so much for visiting! I am a 6th generation Usui Reiki III and Master Teacher. I want to tell you a little about myself; I look forward to meeting you!

I was born in 1978 and raised in Flagstaff, Arizona, a beautiful place to grow up and experience youth. Much of our time was spent outdoors, experiencing all that the sacred mountains had to offer. We were lucky enough to be surrounded by some of the world's most beautiful landscapes, including the Grand Canyon, Sedona, and the San Francisco Peaks. In 2002, I left the beautiful city and moved to Mesa, Arizona, and have been in the Valley of the Sun ever since.

I recall knowing I was a little different at a very young age, that I experienced things more intensely and uniquely than everyone around me. I looked at the world through a very different lens. I could see and feel things that others didn't seem to experience. My perspective sometimes made it difficult to feel understood. As I got older and realized I wasn't experiencing things in a "normal" way, I closed off what I now know is my intuitive side.

In 1996 I began a successful banking career spanning 16 years. No matter how much I accomplished, I never felt fulfilled. I always felt a deep pull to help others but had no idea what that meant except that it didn't seem possible in the world of finance for me. Fast forward to the end of 2014 when I haphazardly said aloud to the Universe, "I need a major emotional and spiritual shift..." Wow! I had no idea what that meant, but I can say today that I'm so glad I asked. I was led to an excellent intuitive healer and received beautiful validating messages from my spirit guides. It was evident that I needed to use my unique gifts to help others through energy work. I have always felt compelled to reach for others when they experience physical or emotional pain. Often I feel their pain as if it were my own. Within days of receiving the message, I found a like-minded meditation group and quickly signed up for an energy healing certification course. I knew right away I had found my calling - FINALLY! 

Next, I was led to Reiki. Today, I am offering my gift to help others improve their lives mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually, and energetically by channeling life force energy. 

I look forward to working with you,

Michelle
