Intuitive Strategist and Spiritual Teacher
I am an empath, spiritual teacher, and intuitive healer living in Portland, Oregon. I created The Vital Spirit to be an instrument in the ongoing shift in human consciousness. I serve empaths and lightworkers through intuitive energy alignment and strategic business consulting. I align my clients with their true nature and their spirit-led businesses.
As a systems thinker, I educate people on the connections between mind, body, and spirit as well as our own innate ability to heal through conscious, deliberate self-awareness. I have a background in business operations and a master’s degree in organizational management. I was mentored for five years by Linda Kardos in spiritual and energy medicine teachings and a year of intuitive energy training with Trisha Michael. I have certifications in Reiki and Theta Healing.
Each of us is powerful beyond measure; The Vital Spirit wishes to remind people of their power through whole-being wellness: body-mind-spirit. My work allows my clients to live more deliberate and authentic lives through compassionate empowerment.
Why am I doing this work?
When I was first learning that I was an empath, I sometimes felt victimized by this so-called “gift.” While on the one hand I was relieved to learn there was an explanation for what I had been experiencing my whole life, on the other, I was frustrated that so little was known or readily available so I could educate myself on how to feel, how to heal, and how to turn a curse into a blessing.
In 2005, empath was not a medically or scientifically recognized attribute. There was very little written about being an empath. Judith Orloff, MD was the beacon in the night for those of us who wanted to understand and have our experience validated. And her work is pivotal to the growing acceptance from the mainstream for our experience as deeply feeling, highly sensitive, and psychic beings. Being an empath still isn’t anywhere near mainstream, but there are a growing number of health professionals that recognize it as something that needs to be worked with and managed.
In 2016 I shifted the focus of my business to working with empaths exclusively. I have felt what was missing was a fuller understanding of what makes an empath, an empath. And no one was talking about thriving. About how to live a full and vibrant life as an empath. It is time to THRIVE empaths!
