Laura was nudged by her helping spirits to commit to a shamanic path when a powerful initiatory experience changed her life. The initiation took Laura through the three worlds where she met with numerous helping spirits and spiritual teachers. Today, Laura is based in Santa Rosa, California where she provides healing shamanic journeys for individuals and facilitates shamanic group work and retreats.
Laura believes that accessing and befriending spirit guides provides empowerment and healing. Her own experience of shamanic healing led her to complete a three-year shamanic training and initiation.
Laura’s areas of focus include: disentangling energetic enmeshment and strengthening energetic boundaries, soul loss, and past lives. Laura works from a Transpersonal theoretical orientation.
Laura’s shamanic and social work training includes Julie M. Kramer’s Three Year Initiation and Professional Training. Laura has a Master’s Degree in Social Work and has extensive experience working in behavioral health settings.
Laura is a member of the National Association of Social Workers (NASW) and the Society for Shamanic Practitioners (SSP).
