Amy’s inspiration to explore healing came through her own health challenges during childhood. She became determined to find an approach to living that would provide wellness in all parts of life.
Sessions with Amy are a combination of hands-on healing, mentoring, and recommendations for creating a healthy lifestyle.
The emphasis of Amy’s work is in helping people to understand the body’s messages, connect those messages with the emotional/spiritual experience, and find solutions that support forward movement in resolving life’s challenge
During a session, insights and understanding provide clarity and identify action steps to manifest your desired outcome. With clarity, the rich opportunity that is presenting itself is seen in a positive framework.
Our glory has nothing to do with our appearance or our occupation. Our special qualities come from an inner source. We aren’t of a single character throughout our lives. We change and grow. Our identities unfold and bloom. Unless we attain the center and keep to our progressions, we cannot ever reach true independence in our lives.” Deng-Ming Dao

“True beauty comes from within. Take a flower as an example. In the beginning it is only a bud. It does not yet show its loveliness to the world, it does not attract bees or butterflies, and it cannot yet become fruit. Only when it opens is beauty revealed in its center. There is the focus of its exquisiteness, there is the source of its aroma, there is its sweet nectar. In the same way, our own unique beauty comes from within.” Deng Ming-Dao

“I originally came to Amy with an open mind and curious heart. Not exactly sure what I was expecting. Even still, after years, I find I always learn something new and get so much benefit during and beyond our sessions.
She curates a safe space and has a way of making something complex feel tangible, usable and practical to implement in my every day life. I love the depth of knowledge she has and the blend she uses in our various sessions and workshops. I will be a life long learner of these wonderful things.
I am so thrilled to have discovered her, her community and lovely gardens.” Kelley Lotosky Artist, photographer, designer and business owner
“Before working with Amy I was in a deep state of overwhelm. I was dealing with insomnia, personal relationships and was struggling as a new parent. The stress and anxiety were starting to affect my health. I really needed a guide through this difficult time. After our first session, I knew that what Amy had to offer me was exactly what I needed.
What I didn’t know at that time was that our sessions together would offer me vastly more than I could have imagined. Amy’s way of offering a higher perspective has given me the ability to see more of life’s possibilities and how to open them up. She has guided me through personal growth, relationship and career transformations with her intelligence, compassion and grace.” Adam Wayne, Hair Stylist
“The sessions with Amy give me time to slow down and help me see more clearly the direction of my life. The healing energy gets me through the ‘humps’ of life’s journey and back on track.” Christina Hagelin, retired teacher
“I feel a big change in myself. Now I understand why I get my headaches, and how to cope with my stresses and emotions in a more effective way. I just had to figure out what was happening and how my mind and body related to one another.” Anette Fuller, Learning specialist
“Amy’s an excellent, compassionate listener and her ability to see the big picture, to put things in perspective, is great validation of my growth and healing process. I feel blessed to have such an experienced guide in my life.” Kathryn Bing-You, Feng Shui consultant
“I have become more resilient, more attuned to my compassion for myself, more confident in my abilities to navigate challenging life events and less defensive. My relationship to myself is deeper and stronger.” Amy Sommer, Occupational therapist
“I just wanted to thank you for that pressure point [to relieve nausea] and the Reiki. I haven’t been to the store yet for the juice and food, but I’m already 60% better. I feel so much better. After a day of processing everything out, smells are not unbearable and I can get up and walk without throwing up. I really appreciate you and I’m very grateful to have you in my life. ♥️” Danielle Cipolla, newly pregnant mama and nurse
