Can I just book a traditional psychotherapy session?

Yes, you certainly can.


What’s the difference between a 60 and 90 minute combination session?

A ninety minute session simply allows for 50-60 minutes of talking within the session.


Do you take insurance?

Aetna, Cigna, Regence, and First Choice/Kaisor, are accepted, and only cover 60 minute sessions. It is an additional $50, out of pocket, to add a half hour for a 90 minute session.


How is counseling, Reiki, and Matrix Energetics combined in a session?

Within a 60 or 90 minute session, the first segment of the session is comprised of talk therapy. A minimum of twenty minutes is reserved for the energetic healing portion. The theme of what was discussed in the psychotherapy segment is brought to the treatment table, to bring in the perspective from the body-mind awareness. Or, sometimes, the client stays seated in their chair, and the energetic work is transmuted from me to you, without physical contact, depending on how much time is left in the session, and what the client’s preference is. The energetic portion involves some dialogue, working in tandem with the client’s awareness of insights and physical sensations they are noticing. The healing energy of Reiki is intermixed with techniques drawn from Matrix Energetics and the streaming of my own higher intuitive conscious intelligence that makes instant changes within the psyche, and physical make-up of the client.


What are typical results of a combination session?

Although talk therapy alone can be very effective for increasing awareness and insight, sometimes, we can talk and talk about something but miss the inner shift that needs to take place for change, keeping us in stuck patterns. The energetic work seems to connect the body-mind awareness, creating the inner shift necessary to create new patterns for desired behavior and feelings. Often, clients receive emotional and physical relief, and find that circumstances that once triggered intensity, has now lost it’s emotional charge, or feels no longer relevant, making the tools gained in the counseling process much more accessible to apply. Clients typically leave the session, feeling at ease, and inspired.


Do I have to be sensitive or intuitive for the energy work to be effective?

No, you do not. People new to this approach can achieve healing and experience the energy. Even if the you do not feel anything at all during a treatment, you are still benefiting from the effects of the energy on a unconscious level. Usually, repeating clients begin to develop their intuition and sensitivity to the energy and process.


What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced, Ray-Key) is a natural hands on or off the body, energetic healing based system. Reikiis a Japanese word representing universal life energy, the energy which is all around us. Reiki is one of the more widely known forms of energy healing. It seeks to restore order to the body whose vital energy has become unbalanced. Energy Healing involves direct application of Chi for the purpose of strengthening the client’s energy system (aura). Chi is the term used by the Chinese mystics and martial artists for the underlying force the Universe is made of. Mystics in all cultures have talked about the physical universe being made of an underlying form of something, much as modern physics research is now coming to understand the Universe is made of energy which is subject to (or affected by) thought. From this theory, one could say we create our own reality from our thinking and the thoughts we share between each of us every day.


How is Reiki done?

Reiki involves the transfer of universal life force energy from practitioner to recipient to enhance the body's natural ability to heal itself through the balancing of energy. Because Reiki is a Universal energy, the Reiki practitioner is simply a conduit for the energy and is very simply performed. Although traditional Reiki healings involve direct light touch with the recipient, most Reiki treatments do not have to involve actual touching. The practitioner can hold his or her hands a few inches or farther away from the recipient’s body and can work from the energy field there. The client stays completely clothed for all treatments. If performing in direct contact, the practitioner places his or her hands upon the person to be healed with the intent for healing to occur, and then the energy begins flowing. The energy knows where to go, and what to do once it gets there, managing its own flow to and within the recipient. It draws through the healer exactly the amount of energy which the recipient needs on all levels, body, mind, and spirit. All this happens without direct conscious intervention by the healer. The healer’s job is to get out of the way, to keep the healing space open, and to watch/listen for signs of what to do next. Reiki is like acupuncture but without the needles.


What does Reiki feel like and what are the effects?

This energy is often described by both the Reiki practitioner and the Reiki client as a tingly sensation that produces soothing warmth, and relaxation. The after effects are, deep relaxation and peace; dissolves energy blockages; detoxifies body and emotions; increases vitality; raises vibrational frequency of the body’s energy field; opens up greater insights/clarity; grounding in the body.


What is Matrix Energetics?

Matrix Energetics is a transfomative healing system developed by, Dr. Richard Bartlett. It is based on the laws and expression of subtle energy physics and the concepts and laws of quantum physics, superstring theory and Sheldrake's Morphic Resonance.  It is a transferable phenomenon, powered by intent, which has a physical and observable effect every time on the body-mind.


How is Matrix Energetics performed?

Matrix Energetics starts with a gentle light touch, or can be utilized from a distance, with the power of focused intent and builds into a new state of possibility that can affect life changes. Matrix Energetics creates a pathway to transformation that takes place by communicating at the quantum level with the wave fronts (energy and information) that create all of reality.  The application of creating new realities in consciousness is only limited by the imagination. Application of the technique can be done with the recipient standing up, laying down, or sitting in a chair.


What are the effects of Matrix Energetics and how does it feel?

Matrix Energetics gives access to new states of awareness that affect change connected to past traumas, injuries and emotional patterns. Matrix Energetics creates an opening to consciously choose to observe a reality in a different way. As a natural extension of changing the way of perceiving, the old reality collapses and new possibilities materialize instantly. Physical and emotional conditions can be resolved with the speed of thought, observing changes instantly. Often recipients will see and feel a wave like motion when Matrix Energetics is applied, as the person being worked on experiences a smooth wave of transformation. What seems to be happening is that the unconsciousness and the biological physical field is reorganizing itself.


Can anyone learn Reiki or Matrix Energetics?
