Renegade Healing


Renegade Healing provides Reiki, EMF Balancing, Intuitive Healing and Biofield Therapy for humans and other animals.

Also now providing AQUA DETOX™ sessions, which detoxify the body and promote further healing. In today's toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residue, build up in the body faster than ever before, resulting in a greater incidence of physical (i.e.allergies, chronic joint pain) and mental imbalance or incapacitation.

Also offering Reiki workshops, with either emphasis on Reiki for people or Reiki for Animals

Profile and Credentials        

I am originally from the metro Milwaukee area of Wisconsin. In November of 2006, I relocated to the Metro-Boston, MA area, after having lived in Durham, NC for 7 years. For those who are interested, my other passion - aside from energy work and animals - is art. Sculpture and charcoal drawing are my favorite modes of expression. I also enjoy music, cooking, gardening, and exploring the great outdoors.

  • Philosophy and Comments        

    My first experience with alternative medicine and healing came in 2002 when my cat, Zoe, became ill with cancer. I quickly learned how well homeopathy and other forms of non-traditional healing could complement standard medicine. I began to look closely at how illness and diseases are treated in our society.

    It's hard to deny the profound impact that much of Western medicine has had upon the world. However, much of the focus is on curing illness rather than preventing it or seeking out the root cause.

    I continue to study the current research and theories about quantum physics/subtle fields, and consciousness - particularly as related to the human energy anatomy. I also have a passion for exploring esoteric writings about the body, mind and soul connection. Through my training and work, first-hand experience has validated many of these interwoven theories for me. I appreciate the profound effect that biofield therapy and the intuitive healing arts have had on my own personal transformation, as well as on the well-being of those closest to me!

    "...then take your fate upon yourself and bear it, its burden and its greatness, without ever asking for that reward which might come from without."

    - Rainer Maria Rilke

    Work Hours and Fee Schedule        

    Please feel free to contact me with your questions, for more details and/or to schedule an appointment!

    I do not yet have an office space here in Boston, so for now I am strictly mobile, bringing my services to you! In-person sessions for my human clients (including Aqua Detox treatments) can be done as an in-call to your home, office or therapist's/doctor's office (with prior approval and arrangement). Animal companion sessions are always done in your own home, barn or stable.

    [Depending upon driving distance, a travel fee may be added. ]

    Again, if in-person sessions are not possible for you or your animal due to time, location, or other circumstance, I can work with you via the 'Distant' method. If you are unsure as to what type of session would best suit your needs, sign up for a "general" energetic clearing/balancing session. We'll discuss your concerns and then go from there, allowing intuition to guide us into the work, be it reiki or another holistic healing technique.

    While the universal healing energy is free to all of us, I do need to charge for my time and services. Here is the fee schedule:

    Aqua Detox sessions are $35.00 per 30 minute session, or $180.00 for (6) pre-paid sessions.

    *Reiki session: $65.00 (1 hr.)

    *EMF Balancing Technique® session: $65.00 (1 hr.)

    *general energetic clearing/balancing session: $65.00 (1 hr.)

    *Optimal Breathing System™ session: $60.00/$40.00 (contact me for more details)

    *Intuitive/Shamanic Healing techniques: (contact me for more information)

    *Distant Reiki/EMF Bal. Technique® session: $55.00

    [*For my Transition DreamWalker™ services, please contact me - fee is based upon ability to pay. ]

    *Animal Companion Reiki/healing sessions:

    In-person: $35.00

    Distant: $25.00

    **Package Reiki and EMF Balancing Technique® sessions are also available - for both people and companion animals (i.e. Buy 4 in-person sessions in advance and get a 20% discount off of the total.).

    **Also, if you are interested in more than one of the above techniques, check with me as several of them do combine very well!

    As a hands-on healing method, Reiki is both very subtle and very powerful. It can help your animal companion heal on all levels - physical, mental, emotional and spiritual (-yes, spiritual!). This universal life force energy is channeled through the hands of the practitioner directly to the body and energy field of your animal friend. Because of its nature, Reiki can never do harm. It always works for our highest, greatest good.

    Our animal companions can benefit greatly from Reiki treatment. In my experience, animals are very open and in tune with the flow of Reiki energy - they seem to know instinctively of its power to help them heal. While it should not take the place of medical care from a licensed veterinarian or homeopath, it is an excellent and safe complement to standard/Western medicine and all other forms of healing.

    Here are just a few of the things that Reiki can do for your animal:

    * promote relaxation, contentment and an overall sense of well-being

    * accelerate post-surgical recovery

    * help relieve pain and discomfort

    * alleviate symptoms of disease

    * reduce stress levels

    * help calm aggressive or fearful animals

    * improve emotional and behavioral problems

    * provide comfort and support to dying animals


    There are two different ways of administering Reiki to your animal. The first way is with an in-person, hands-on session. I place my hands gently on or just above your animal companion. The Reiki energy can be directed to a particular problem area (i.e. an injured limb, surgical wound) and/or to their entire body - depending on the needs of your animal.

    If an in-person session is not possible, due to your location, your animal's accessibility or otherwise, the 'Distant' method is an excellent alternative. I can send Reiki to the other side of a kennel/cage door, to an animal across the room from me, or to one in a different part of the country! Again, Reiki energy knows no bounds.


    I firmly believe in the power of Reiki to help with any kind of healing process. As with you and me however, it is up to our animal friends to be open to receiving the energy. It is unethical for me to send Reiki to a human without their consent; likewise, it would not be right for me to force it upon your dog, cat, horse or parakeet! The workshops I've taken in Intuitive Animal Communication have helped me reawaken my telepathic abilities and strengthen my connection to All That Is. At this time, I am not doing full-on animal communication work. However, I do use these ever-expanding skills to connect on a much deeper level with my animal clients. I will always 'check in' with your companion before beginning a session. I need to find out how they are feeling - on all levels, and to ask for their permission to enter their 'space' and perform a body scan or do a Reiki treatment. In my experience, animals are almost always willing to receive this type of help and healing.

    Animals have always been an important part of my life - from the family dogs and cats to cows, pigs and chickens (- I spent many childhood summers on my grandparents' farm!). When I moved to North Carolina I worked at a busy, top-notch veterinary hospital for five years, where my experience ranged from full-time animal caregiver to service coordinator. I currently volunteer my Reiki services at the Piedmont Wildlife Center here in Durham - always a very humbling experience! Animals have given and taught me so much over the years and I am honored to return the favor. It is my intention to be heart-centered in all of my work and to always do the best I can for your very special animal companion!

    Intuitive Healing Methods        

    "Intuitive Healing is integrative. It means respecting the intelligence of your analytical mind but also calling on a deeper wisdom to guide you." - Judith Orloff, M.D.

    What is "Shamanism"?

    Michael Harner, Ph.D., an anthropologist and founder of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies explains that, "The word "shaman" in the original Tungus language refers to a person who makes journeys to nonordinary reality in an altered state of consciousness... and that the most distinctive feature of shamanism-but by no means the only one-was the journey to other worlds in an altered state of consciousness.

    "Shamans are often called "see-ers" (seers), or "people who know" in their tribal languages, because they are involved in a system of knowledge based on firsthand experience. Shamanism is not a belief system. It's based on personal experiments conducted to heal, to get information, or do other things.

    Shamanic Techniques that I offer...

    Instruction in Guided Meditation/Ecstatic Journeying - connecting with your own innate wisdom

    Power Animal Contact & Retrieval

    Spirit Guide Contact & Retrieval

    The Illumination Process; the Extraction (energetic) Process

    Psychopomp (see Transition DreamWalker™ section below)

    House blessing & space clearing ceremonies

    "Shamanism is a path of knowledge, not of faith, and that knowledge cannot come from me or anyone else in this reality. To acquire that knowledge, including the knowledge of the reality of the spirits, it is necessary to step through the shaman's doorway and acquire empirical evidence." - Michael Harner

    Transition DreamWalker™:

    Over the centuries, for a multitude of reasons, the human death process has become marginalized and largely turned into one of fear and indignity. In many of our ancient cultures however, it was customary for a dying person to have someone who acted as a psychopomp - one who guided the departing soul from the earthly dimensions back to the angelic, or celestial realms.

    Well, this tradition is returning to our times. The Transition DreamWalker™ brings dignity and beauty back to the death experience, as well as love and support to the individual in transition, and comfort to their family. Every death is as sacred and natural as every birth. A DreamWalker 'midwifes' the soul back Home.

    The DreamWalker will help the client gently release the physical body and escort them to the other side of the Veil. Then, they will safely and joyfully hold their client's energy in the non-physical Earth realms throughout their three-day transition and funeral process. Finally, when they are ready, the DreamWalker will guide the client to the 'Bridge of Flowers', where they are escorted by the highest order of celestial beings on to the final portion of their transition journey.

    As a certified Transition DreamWalker™, I am able to make a connection with a person, and meet them on the other side of our conscious reality - a process parallel in feel to shamanic, or ecstatic journeying:

    Before the physical death, this allows me to visit and 'talk' with them while they are asleep or in a coma. During this period of transition and after they have left their physical body, they can call to me when they desire, and my dreams are their experiences. They are often traveling and creating a place for themselves in another reality, which they share with me.

    Once they make the physical Death/Transition, I am with them at their funeral. They often are feeling an ecstatic energetic release and freedom from the 3-D body, combined with the powerful emotions of the loved ones left behind. The DreamWalk typically continues for 4-10 days after the Death/Transition. I am there journeying with them daily in the non-physical realms, recording all they do and experience for the family left behind. They often create their journey with their beloved pets at their side, and visit favorite places, their childhood home, and possibly family or friends they meet along the way. I accompany them, reminding them there is much to see and do. There are several 'doorways' (levels of consciousness) to go through, if they choose to make the entire journey. The ultimate is the 'Bridge of Flowers'. At this crossing, I only go half-way across with them, at which point they are greeted by beings of the Angelic Order, their guides, loved ones and their True Self. It is a glorious, emotional, loving celebration of that Soul with no comparison on our earth plane!

    I've spent a lot of time here explaining this because I feel it is such important work. After all, who wouldn't want someone to hold their hand as they are crossing over, and then accompany them on their journey Home? A comforting and dignified way of passing, I think - both for the dying one and those closest to them.

    Aqua Detox        

    Pimples, rashes, dark circles under the eyes, swollen joints, yellow/green and blotched complexions often indicate a buildup of tissue acid wastes inside the body. An AQUA DETOX™ regimen of sessions, along with dietary modification and other detoxification methods have been shown to substantially assist in reducing and even eliminate these conditions.

    What is a Detox session?

    A water molecule is composed of two hydrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. When the molecule loses a hydrogen atom, the remaining OH molecule takes on a negative charge. As you walk along the beach, your body absorbs millions of these negatively charged ions, which alkalize the blood and tissue. Because of poor diet and high stress, we tend to accumulate and store excessive quantities of waste products, such as diacetic, lactic, pyruvic, uric, carbonic, acetic, butyric, and hepatic acids.

    According to Dr. Theodore Baroody, author of Alkalize or Die, acid wastes attack joints, tissues, muscles, organs, and glands causing minor to major dysfunction. He asserts that avoiding disease and maintaining vitality, as we age, requires the maintenance of an alkaline environment throughout the body - which is virtually impossible to accomplish in our high-tech, high-stress, toxic society, unless we can walk on the beach everyday.

    The Detox System creates precisely the same environment as the walk along the beach, only more powerfully because your feet are in direct contact with the ions being manufactured in the water. Place your feet in the water, turn on the unit and within seconds, millions of ions enter your body and begin to neutralize these tissue acid wastes.

    The particles, fat, and mucous residues found in the water after bathing reflect the wastes that have left the body during the 20 to 30 minute session.

    Your body may feel lighter after the first session. You may also think more clearly, have more energy and enjoy a greater sense of well-being.

    How the AQUA DETOX™ System Work?

    Very simply the user of the system places the feet in the foot spa of luke warm water. A small amount of a pre-made saline solution (a combination of household or sea salt and water) is added to aid the conductivity of the water. When the system is switched on and the array immersed in water, the unit creates an electrolytic flow (a flow of electrons), which imparts to the water a bio-energetic field, which allows a gentle bio-energetic resonance to travel through the body. The water in the foot spa (or bath) becomes an extension of the water in the body, from which it is separated by nothing more substantial than a thin membrane - the skin.

    Bio-energetic stimulation has a positive effect on microcirculation. The microcirculation is the part of the body’s fluid circulation directly involved in the interchanges of substances between the blood and tissues of the body. Microcirculation plays a very important role in regulating both the supply of Oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and proper excretion of waste products out of the body.

    If the microcirculation is good, the body is more likely to be healthy. When there is an imbalance, there is more likely to be a dysfunction. As the body re-balances its Bio-Energetic Field it plays an important part in regulating both supply of Oxygen and nutrients to the tissues and the proper excretion of waste products (toxins) out of the body. The body is therefore more likely to be healthy, allowing the body to restore its natural healing energy levels.

    What are the benefits of the AQUA DETOX™ session?

    The benefits of the AQUA DETOX™ session are numerous and many people have enjoyed significant relief from the symptoms of illness. An AQUA DETOX™ session is never the same for any two people and this means that people suffering from what appear to be comparable symptoms may experience quite different results. This is because the symptoms may be caused by different underlying conditions.

    Can everyone use the AQUA DETOX™ System?

    There are four specific categories of people who should not use the AQUA DETOX™ system — those with pacemakers, those who have had organ transplants, anyone with epilepsy, and pregnant women. A pregnant woman who has had an AQUA DETOX™ session should not be overly concerned, but it is advisable to discontinue with sessions. Anyone in any doubt about using the system should check with his or her physician.

    A person taking medication should not hesitate to use the system. The AQUA DETOX™ session stimulates only the natural bodily function of excretion, so supports only the release of toxins and other impurities, which, for whatever reason, the body’s cells have allowed to build up. The treatment will not stimulate the body to excrete any vitamins, minerals, nutrients or medication carried in the body pending absorption.

    What do the colors of the water mean?

    While the colors produced in the water during the AQUA DETOX™ session do, understandably, intrigue most people, it is not possible to state with certainty that any one color is specific to a particular organ or part of the body.

    Color is not a scientific measurement, and no scientific or medical equipment exists which can relate the color of the water to specific organs or areas of the body.

    The company has also used a Thermal Imaging Camera, a medically approved camera widely used in hospitals , to photograph the effect of the AQUA DETOX™ session on the body. This camera recorded the fact that during and after AQUA DETOX™ session the temperature of the patient’s legs is significantly increased, (by more than 1°C), indicating that the circulation has been improved significantly.
