I’m the creator, founder & mentor
behind Reiki Montreal.
It’s so good to meet you.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned on my journey of creating Reiki Montreal it’s this:
The absolute best part of it has been the people I’ve met on the way. You’re now one of them. Hi.
I’ll admit it –
When I started my healing journey back in 2010, I had no clue what I was getting myself into.
I knew I was dissatisfied, lost, angry-restless and looking for an elusive “something more”, but beyond that? Or how to “stop feeling that way”? I had no clue. I was looking in all the typical places a 22-year old looks: school (a bachelors in psychology from a top University should help, no?), travels, (bad) relationships, crazy conversations at 3am with friends after nights out, self-help books, you name it…
But the connection I was looking for? The real deal connection with myself? The one that feels like self-acceptance and inner peace and humor and joy and creativity and awe all rolled into one? That one was buried far underneath patterns of social anxiety, perfectionism, codependency, anxiety and depression.
Luckily, as blocked as I was, there was always that tiny little intuitive voice guiding me.
And in 2010 she said: “Sign up for this Vipassana 10-day meditation thing. I don’t care if you don’t know what meditation is. Just do it.”
So I did.
… and I haven’t stopped since. Someone I met at that retreat told me about chakras, which led me to learn about the mind-body connection, which led me to learn about Reiki, which led me to start undoing those patterns of perfectionism & social anxiety, which led me to committing to an entire certificate in Energy Medicine, which led me to… You get the idea.
If this story resonates for
you, I want you to know:
- No matter how stuck you feel, you too have that little voice of intuition inside of you. Maybe she even sent you here. Listen.
- You don’t need to know how things will play out in advance. I promise.
- The most gorgeous person who you can become is EXACTLY who you are – underneath the patterns that don’t work for you. Everything we do here at Reiki Montreal serves that purpose: Whether you feel stuck in the darkest of places or just need a little guidance, we help you become who you are.
Now, let me circle back.
I gained a LOT through my healing journey. I healed so many layers of perfectionism, social anxiety, shame, and self-doubt. I move through periods of situational depression so much faster now. I’ve had a chance to alchemize my creativity wounds, codependent patterns in relationship, and so much more.
- I live an incredibly creative life.
- I travel a good 4 months out of the year.
- I have a solid, conscious relationship with my partner Sean.
- We became parents for the first time in July 2021, are expecting again in September 2023 and are creating a family life we’re ecstatic about.
- I can truly honestly say I love myself.
… and yet… with all of that good stuff, I can still say that what’s been MOST fulfilling to me on this journey is the people I get to meet.
There’s nothing quite like watching people radiantly, truly become who they are. That opens my heart, puts a big smile on my face and it’s why I do this work day in day out.
Stop acting so small. You are the universe in ecstatic motion.
At this time, I’m only
After 8 years of working with over a thousand clients one-on-one, I’m taking a pause from one-on-one work and putting my full focus on teaching new energy healers + mentoring the healers featured here. When you work with them, you work with me and benefit from my know-how and experience as well as theirs.
