about THE WORK

Caritas Technique

Talk Therapy meets
Somatic Awareness
+ Energy Work

My work is centered around an energetic healing modality called Caritas Technique, originally created by teacher and mentor Jacob Kiakahi.  I’ve found this practice to be life changing, and it is an honor to be able to share it with others.

The present moment constantly offers up an opportunity for healing.  Caritas channels this potential through energetic resonance between practitioner and client, all within the structure of alternating periods of verbal exchange and sitting together silently. 

At the start of each session, I typically ask some variation of the question: what is it that you are looking to shift or transform? From there, we follow an energetic thread to see what healing wants to take place during our time together.

In the past, I’ve assisted people with experiences of emotional trauma, unwanted mental, emotional, and behavioral patterns, physical pains or discomfort, energetic phenomena, spiritual questions, and moral crises.

It is my intention to create a safe, comfortable, and confidential space that facilitates healing.

Sessions are offered at my office in St. Paul, Minnesota or via Zoom.
