Prior to my 26 year career as a financial advisor (as of 2018 I am retired from this occupation!), I managed several businesses ranging from a specialized outdoor retailer (think camping, climbing and backpacking) to national restaurant chains. I earned a BS in Business Management as well as several advanced certifications: Certified Financial Planner(TM), Chartered Financial Consultant(TM), Certified Enneagram Teacher and Registered Yoga Teacher. I am a Certified Spring Forest Qigong Level III and BodyTalk practitioner.
During my time in college, I was attracted to what was then called "New Age" thinking. I was drawn to the healing arts...it was and is my calling. At the time, I could not envision the ability to generate enough money to support my desired lifestyle so I chose the 'logical' path of finance. I find it very interesting how life brought me back to this healing path.
"Why did I choose to move toward a more spritiual profession?"
I have always been a spiritual person and my own journey has led me to this point. Over my career, as I worked closely with hundreds of people annually, it was obvious to me that many folks were suffering from physical and emotional challenges. They lacked the tools and knowledge to adequately deal with what was going on in their body and mind. I've had profound experiences and many benefits on my own healing journey. I want to share this knowledge and help you experience the healing and peace you desire.
On a more personal note, I love the outdoors. I'm an avid hiker and backpacker. On my free days you'll find me hiking the trails at nearby state parks. I am an excellent handyman with extensive experience rehabbing older homes. We are beginning to turn our yard into a permaculture garden. Currently, I'm in a relationship and have 3 adult children.
Established in 2012
I launched Divine Energy Works when I began teaching qigong in 2012. Since then it has grown to include teaching yoga & meditation, facilitating various workshops on topics such as qigong, 5 Elements Theory & Practice, crystal singing bowls and the Enneagram. My favorite time is spent working personally with individuals in customized coaching and/or energy medicine sessions.
I love practicing energy medicine because it allows me to positively impact your well-being. When pain, stress and anxiety dominate your physical being, it can be difficult to find peace, joy and happiness. Through energy medicine, I am able to help your body restore its natural energy flow. This results in faster recovery from injury, less stress, feelings of contentment and joy. My goal is to help you live a more joy-filled life. We all need more joy, right?!
We're Here for You
Healing is only a phone call or e-mail away. While I have scheduled days and times I see clients, I understand life happens outside these hours.
PLEASE: If you are experiencing a medical emergency or acute symptoms, go to the ER or call your doctor. My work does not replace that of licensed medical practitioners. Energy medicine is complimentary to other healing modalities, including traditional western medicine.
So, if you need an energy medicine intervention outside of my normal hours, reach out to me. We can do distance healing. I can come to you if you are local. You have options and do not need to suffer.
