I BELIEVE THAT HEALING CAN BE SIMPLE
I BELIEVE your soul knows what is best for you.
I BELIEVE that when you are listening, everything falls into place.
I BELIEVE that you are important and so are your desires.
I BELIEVE it is possible for you to breathe fully, be happy and love your life.
This was not always my story. It is now, and I am passionate about helping other women awaken to what they are most wanting.
I was always drawn to things other people considered “woo-woo”- the spiritual, mystical, paranormal. My parents say that I was telling them about ghosts, auras, and astral travelling since the time I could talk. I remember making a Quija board and playing with neighbours in the basement. I didn’t come from a religious or spiritual family, so there was no language around things like this. I learned quickly to keep my visions to myself. My incredible connection to spirit was a large part of me that I kept hidden for years.
As a highly sensitive child, I got sick fairly often. If someone had a cold, I would get it. I got migraine headaches and struggled with asthma. I felt the weight of the world and could feel others pain. By the time I was in my twenties, I was diagnosed with an incurable and very painful condition called interstitial cystitis. The doctors said this would be something I would have to deal with for the rest of my life. At first I felt depressed and then I kicked into high gear doing research on what foods to eat, what to stay away from, what to do. The more I researched and found conflicting information, the more anxious I got. The medicine offered by my doctor was making my body acidic and causing me to get sicker. I tried Ayurveda and found that some of the foods conflicted with other systems. I was desperate to find the “right” way.
One day in the library I came across a cassette tape by Deepak Chopra. It was about energy and how your body has the ability to heal. This lit me up. I felt excited and hopeful. I immersed myself in learning from Louise Hay, Wayne Dyer, and Abraham Hicks. I went to a workshop on the chakra system with Anodea Judith. All of these wise teachers taught that thoughts and emotions are our guidance system. I learned that we have control over what we think and how we feel. It was empowering!
My excitement led me to an energy healing program at the Connecticut Healing Institute where I studied bioenergetics, family constellations, and chi gong under Barry Gordon, LMFT for four years. I also trained in hypnosis, Reiki, and body mapping. I was certified in Transformational Breathwork at the Inner Arts Institute under Samvedam Randles, LMHC. Most recently, I’ve been adding tarot into sessions as another way of accessing intuition.
As I learned to meditate and listen, I knew what my body needed to do to heal. Now when I feel out of balance, I know it’s time for a hot tea, salt bath, or hike in the woods. I stopped looking for answers outside of myself and trusted that my intuition would lead me to what was right. In the end, it didn’t take long for me to heal, I just had to trust that I could do it.
I am deeply called to help others find their way. Not in sharing my wisdom, but in helping you get in touch with yours. Every session is magical and so much is transmitted through the energy of the breath. My intention is to approach each session with a sense of curiosity, compassion, playfulness, and empathy.
“I’ve been seeing Jessie regularly for the past two years. Every session with her is deeply healing and filled with profound insight, I started seeing her after a hard break-up. With the help of her tenderness and guidance, my heart healed and I understood why I attracted this experience. Jessie helped me become clear on what I really wanted in a partner. Most of all, I learned to trust my feelings and love myself.
"I am in awe of our work with the breath. I’ve been “trained” since childhood to ignore my inner knowing to survive. I’ve denied my own guidance and personal power and it was getting me nowhere. Breathwork classes and sessions have been a powerful force in helping me reclaim myself and trust my intuitive knowing. I’m becoming empowered! The biggest change is my relationship with my body. I am more aware of my body and no longer hold my breath. I live my life at a slower pace and am more present. I feel more whole. Jessie has that rare gift of a true heart centered presence of a healer. I always feel warmly welcomed and held in a deep nourishing space for healing. She is as wise as an elder and her intuition is spot on. "
