I have a Diploma in Medical Assistant with Limited X-Ray and one in Massage Therapy. This is where my love of Medicine comes in. I’ve worked at a Naturopathic Dr Office since Nov 2007 (where I started as a Medical Assistant) and I’ve been a Licensed Massage Therapist (#16404) since June 2009 (however I had to stop working in March 2020 due to Covid-19 and caring for a high risk individual). I’m taking a break from doing hands on work, but still want to offer some healing services in the form of Herbal Remedies and Crystal Therapies in the future. Bear in mind that none of these therapies replace Western Medicine and you should always talk to your primary care physician for any medical issues. My therapies are merely supportive and not curative.
I began my learning of medicinal herbs around the time I started there. I still consider myself a novice, but love knowing what I know! I am studying Intermediate Herbal Course with The Herbal Academy so that I may make herbal topicals for my customers. I also completed The Mushroom Course through this school and am Certified as having completed it.
I also plan to become a Certified Aromatherapist by taking the course from Heart of Herbs. I think blending my knowledge of herbs and mushrooms from the Herbal course with the aromatherapy in my products will be quite amazing!

I’ve been studying crystals and healing with them for at least the last 15-20 years. Much of the books and websites I’ve seen are ego driven, money making, scams, but there are a few I feel are much more realistic and worth the money. Much of what I purchased to learn or get “attuned” with back when I first started no longer speak to me. We are ever-changing beings after all!

I’m taking some courses from Evolve Healing Institute, and Hibiscus Moon Crystal Academy. I just graduated as a Certified Crystal Healer from Love & Light School of Crystal Therapy, which explains things in a more scientific way. I know my client want to know WHY things work the way they do, and those courses will give me more of the background to explain it to them. I love science in a galactic way. Here is a blog I wrote regarding Quartz Crystals versus my hand in melting an ice cube.
Please note that there is no recognition for courses that “certify” you in Crystal Healing. The Certification just indicates you took their course and passed a test. What should be important to you is that I’ve studied a lot of courses and ought to know my stuff! Also, just because I’ve taken a course doesn’t mean I follow it’s directives hook-line-and sinker. If something doesn’t feel right to me, I don’t do it, just as if it does feel right I will do it, whether I learned it in a course or not. I make treatments with crystals my own and tailor treatments to the client, not following a recipe. As I mentioned before I am actively licensed as a Massage Therapist (#16404) and I am also a Minister through the Universal Life Church and very qualified to legally do Crystal Therapies in either a Massage Therapy or Spiritual Healing capacity.
Thank you for considering me for crystal therapy!
There may be more healing offerings in the future as well so keep posted!
