"The wound is the place where the Light enters you." -Rumi
As women, we wear many hats. Wife, mother, sister, lover, friend, confidant, and leader of so many aspects of our own lives and the lives of others. Whether we informally lead within our families and social circles, or we formally lead people, processes, or a business – or both – the pressures are great. Especially if we are naturally sensitive and empathic by nature. Our engagement, excitement, and sense of accomplishment are often overshadowed by stress, fear, exhaustion, overwhelm, sadness, lack of understanding, and loneliness.
As energetic beings in a human body, having human experiences, fragments of our difficult, stressful, or downright painful experiences, both from the present and our past, collect in our energetic body over time and eventually start to take a toll. We feel overwhelmed, exhausted, and in physical or emotional pain. We struggle to keep growing, learning, leading – but often feel like something is keeping us stuck.
We keep going, keep doing, because that's all we know, but it doesn't make the stress, fear, sadness, or loneliness, go away. We try to numb ourselves with substances or more work, but that doesn't resolve the feelings either. Little works consistently until we are ready for something different. Truly ready.
Ready to heal what holds us back.
Whether that’s a lack of confidence, fear of not being good enough (or being too much), not being able to align passion with purpose, or simply being overwhelmed, all healing involves lovingly LISTENING to and HONORING all that which has brought us to this moment: our trials and traumas, our joys and celebrations, our pain and grief. All our wounds make us who we are and they are not to be dismissed without care. They are as much as part of us as our organs, our hair color, and our personality. They reside within us as inner children, a deep reminder of how much we have overcome, often as a matter of survival, and how far we may still have to go.
Often, we avoid approaching these parts of ourselves, because we feel we’ve moved on. It seems like going backwards in time and to do so would bring inevitable pain. And yet, it is not definitively known that NOT approaching these parts brings less pain. In fact, many of us come to an awareness at some point in our lives that not doing this critical work inevitably results in MORE pain, often of a physical nature (for spiritual, mental, and emotional trauma eventually makes its way to the physical, if not addressed).
Through my work in women’s empowerment and healing and my career in leadership development, I find that we tend to focus our experiences around skills and competencies known to be universally helpful to our various roles, while leaving out the most important aspect – how we lead ourselves. We focus all our energy outward without realizing that the way we manage our energy impacts how we show up in the world for others – our family, friends, co-workers, employees, and other important relationships.
As an experienced energy healing practitioner, holistic coach, and one who still welcomes, practices, and frequently struggles with my own healing journey, I offer you the opportunity to both LISTEN to and HONOR your wounds so that you are able to experience what you've always needed: PEACE. FREEDOM. POWER. SELF-LEADERSHIP.
"Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are." -Rachel Naomi Remen
"I started working with Ashley around the time of my divorce. I was very sad and lonely and knew I needed to dig myself out of the well but wasn't quite sure how to do it. I found Ashely and there was an instance connection but some hesitation on my part after learning of a personal connection. Ashley gave me space but felt the connection as well so she reached out to me. The first session left me emotional for a couple of days. I quickly learned I had to schedule sessions so I had time to allow my mind and body to deal with all of the release. She was able to "feel" my sad heart and that become our focus - for my heart to not be so sad. Over the course of the past year and half I have experienced pain and joy after our sessions. I love the sense of peace and calm that overtakes my body after a session.
Until I fully let go of the past and what I believed I had wanted, a "fire"/ a "heat" was stirred in my root chakra. After working with Ashley, not only through Reiki, but by utilizing some of her life strategies she has taught me I was able to fully let go of the past. My smile is brighter, my heart sings, and now she gets images of flowing water where fire once was. I contribute a huge piece of my healing process to Ashley, her Reiki sessions, her insight, and life strategies. Thank you for helping my heart sing once again!" -Patti F.
"Ashley is an excellent light worker and teacher. Her sessions make you feel recharged and renewed.” -Pam R.
“Ashley has an openness and ease that relaxed me immediately. Even though I am new to reiki energy work, I felt safe, comfortable and grounded by her presence. I felt shifts occur as she worked on my chakras. Her feedback after the session was helpful and enlightened the experience. I have already recommended her to others and taken my daughter to see her. My daughter enjoyed it, and felt "lighter" afterwards. She is a great intuitive healer!” -Michelle S.
"It was nice having a cheerleader by my side through a very rough time in my life. Thank you!" -Cary M.
The women who work with me have a big purpose, whether they know it yet or not. Together, we will explore powerful topics to connect you to your truth and power, such as:
"It’s not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it’s because we do not dare that things are difficult." -Roman philosopher Seneca
As women, we often feel overwhelmed, stuck, and stressed as a result of living for everyone else for so long. When this happens, you can feel like the world is unsafe and untrustworthy. As if YOU are unsafe and untrustworthy. This is common. The world as you know it is changing and you have to relearn how to be in the world. Releasing fears and rebuilding trust in ourselves is an important step. You will be able to:
- Establish grounding and connection to a source of greater peace and safety that is always available
- Build a sense of trust in yourself that you may never have experienced before
- Explore tools to cultivate trust and feel safe within yourself and the world
HOW IT WORKS
"A healer does not heal you. A healer is someone who holds space for you while you awaken your inner healer, so that you may heal yourself." ~Maryam Hasnaa
My work is a combination of my years of experience with both holistic coaching and energy healing. We work together on all levels: BODY, MIND, and SPIRIT. Because of the deep nature of this work, and my commitment to your transformation, I work with only two women at a time. This ensures you get the maximum attention and focus on YOU and your healing needs.
I work in-person or remotely, which is just as effective (if not more so) without the need for travel. Both formats include gentle yet powerful sessions, customized to fit your unique needs and challenges.
For each individual session, we discuss your current concerns, issues, and goals. I assess and clear each chakra as well as your overall energy field. I take notes pre, post, and during the session, and share those with you, as well as any intuitive feedback I may receive. As part of that feedback, I give action items as needed and help you to set goals to accomplish between sessions.

The need for healing didn't happen overnight, and we don't unravel the layers overnight either. Deep wounds require time to work through the healing process with all the time, care, and tenderness you deserve. Continue the work we started with the Shift Package. Pay as you go ($150/session) or purchase a package at a discounted rate. Each session includes the same as above.
Due to the nature of energy, healing, and personal growth, it's important for all parties to be comfortable and confident with each other. For that reason, I love to speak with each potential client prior to a session, to ensure it is a good fit for everyone.
