About Emily

“I am an instrument in the shape   
of a woman trying to translate pulsations   
into images for the relief of the body   
and the reconstruction of the mind.”
Adrienne Rich

I am so happy you’re here. To share a little about me, I have worked in the healing arts as a massage therapist and energy healing practitioner for fourteen years. I have read oracle cards for over fifteen years, and began teaching myself tarot when I began massage school, where I  found a magical deck in my school’s bookstore. I have always been one to “connect the dots,” with an urge to create form from the formless, and dive to the depths to make meaning of my experience. Part of my purpose here is translating the soul’s language into heart-centered, workable magic for us all. I do this through my work as a natural born and formally trained intuitive, a tarot reader, a writer, a licensed bodyworker, and a Reiki master (here’s my massage website– Luna Touch Bodywork ) As an empath and a psychic, I can feel, see, sense, and know energetic patterns and pictures that play out as experiences and circumstances in our lives. I use my skills to assist you in identifying, acknowledging, loving, and moving energy so all that is ready to come through you has the space to. In my years of experience as a healer, I have found that my approach to energetic work is done in reverence for the physical process of healing; I respect the amount of time healing takes, and the courage it takes to move ourselves through the continual cycles of death, rebirth, and integration. I am here for the process all the way.

I continue a deep commitment to soul work and psychic education with truly amazing teachers and mentors—-including receiving Reiki 1 and 2 attunement from Dragana Gobic; Reiki Master attunement and learning energy healing techniques from Jenette Traverson; engaging in a 3 month soul-work mentorship and from a depth perspective with Laura Larriva Page; and completion of a year of study in psychic skills and self-development, including both an Essential Psychic Skills course and an in-depth 8 month clairvoyant training program–The Psychic Training, taught by Erin Schroeder. I am passionate about the work I do because I have changed my life through it, and I see people’s lives changing through their own commitment to doing their work (which can be play, too!)

It is imperative that we develop the strength and softness necessary to meet our truest selves, so we can create the level of change the planet needs us to step up for. I feel that this work requires us to remain in love and devotion to not just our inner lives, but to our human and non human world. It is my belief that we cannot be truly free until all are free– the wounds inflicted on the planet and humanity by deep rooted systemic oppression will take time to clear and heal; inner strengthening, especially for those in positions of privilege, is non-negotiable so the work of dissolving, reimagining, and restructuring and continue to be done on every level.

I currently work one on one with clients, in-spa at Earthonics Studio Spa in Ojai, at private clients’ homes from Ojai to Santa Barbara, and on retreats both locally and internationally. I am also co-founder, with Karina Duffy, of Community Healing Sanctuary in Ojai (here’s our site Community Healing Sanctuary ) Both working the events and holding space, we provide a container for various practitioners, from psychics to bodyworkers, to offer specialized healing sessions at an affordable cost. We believe healing should be accessible to all, and hope these events will give people the opportunity to receive a variety of healing modalities they may have been curious about trying, as well as meet trusted healers they can continue to work with. I also look forward to creating workshops and classes for intuitive and creative development (stay tuned.)

I feel every moment is a miraculous unfolding, a deepening and a revealing, and I am so grateful to be walking my path, with all its tidal surges and softening, its waxing and waning, its challenges and magic, its closures and openings, its clarity and mystery. I am passionate about all that brings me into an experience of soul: the earth, the cosmos, communion, connection, service, spirit, the sacred heart, synchronicity, psychic healing, physical healing, cycles, lineage, movement, dance, stillness, breath, body, mythology, creativity, beauty, alchemy, travel, adventure, light, shadow, questions, mystery and expansion.

In a Session

Come with your presence, receptivity, and desire to grow, and we can engage in a conversation guided by intuition, our higher selves, our earthly selves, our divine helpers, and the tarot’s rich symbology. We will laugh, maybe cry, and come through with insights, uplifting revelations, validations, and new perspectives. Times of transition are challenging, but they also create openings of immense possibility. My intention is to create a grounded, sacred space for you to be who you are, however you have arrived to this moment. Intuitive sessions bring to the surface that which needs to be seen, held, and often what needs to be released, so you can go forth with more confidence, joy, clarity, love, and spaciousness around what is possible. Holding your light and shadow as integral parts of your being, I will assist you in dialing in your practice of self love, and help you tune in to your innate wholeness, power, creativity, and magic at this juncture in your life. I reflect your inner knowledge back to you, and create a container where you can feel your own inexhaustible spark. I help you to connect deeply with the complex layers of your own inner knowing.

In sessions where Reiki and energy work is included with a reading, I help you bring balance to your energy centers, harmonizing the system to encourage a movement of energy. The more fully we can be in ourselves, in whatever part of the process we may be, the more resourced we are to move through it with grace. The divine energy and the earth energy we bring in clarifies, illuminates, and grounds your system to facilitate optimal functioning and full embodiment. Energy work, like body work, is a tune up, and maintenance is important. Shifts will happen in your life when you are willing to do your work and surrender to the unfolding (and with the awareness that energy work is not a replacement for professional medical care.) I love to offer tools that you can use in your daily life that nurture your well being. I am consistently inspired by my clients, who show me in so many ways the incredible potential we carry for going deep, getting real, expanding perspectives, and empowering ourselves in our continual evolution. My aim is to hold you exactly where you are and encourage your own revelations in the timing that feels right to you. It is an honor, a joy, and a privilege to grow alongside you in this wild dance of life.
