Reiki and Energy Healing,Transpersonal Healing and Counseling,
Meditation and Spiritual Development


Sessions and Trainings, In person and On-line



Hello and Welcome.

Perhaps you’re looking for relief from anxiety, depression, illness, or an overwhelming life transition. Or maybe you’ve tried traditional approaches that haven’t quite cut it.

Either way, if you’re wondering if this is the place you will find the Spiritual Foundation and Ease

that you seek,

the answer is yes. 

Hi, I’m Mary.

I offer a multidisciplinary approach that merges ancient wisdom with contemporary energy medicine.

Through my Reiki and Energy Healing, Transpersonal Healing and Counseling, and Meditation and Spiritual Development Sessions, you will:

  • Heal and evolve emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually;
  • Get sustained relief from anxiety, depression, and fatigue — the triumvirate of our times;
  • Experience the genuine peace, confidence, and ease that is the natural outcome of aligning with your Higher Self.

What I Do

With more than 25 years of training, practice, and experience, I have helped many people, perhaps just like you, feel the peaceful, joyful ease of sustained contact with Higher Consciousness – and the emergence of the Higher Potential in every facet of your life. I welcome your inquiries to explore how I may best be of service to you.

Reiki/Energy Healing Sessions

Whether you’re dealing with burnout, grappling with a mid-life crisis or illness, or want to figure out who you really are and why you are here, I bring an Embodied Spiritual Perspective to meet you where you are and find your way forward.

Depending on your situation, and what your goals and intentions are, I may simply facilitate the session while you relax and drift off, or I may include you in a more collaborative process where together we will explore the inner terrains of your being to retrieve information and access specific areas that have been closed off to you.

Reiki Practitioner Training

Next Series Begins January 13, 2024

Whether you desire the information and tools to heal yourself, or you aspire to become a successful Reiki Healing Therapist and help others, this comprehensive, hands-on program provides an in-depth energy medicine curriculum that delves into the bio-electromagnetic system and how it functions.

Emphasis is placed on hands-on practice, intuitive development, and professional integrity so that each participant feels completely comfortable and confident in their skills.



Transpersonal Healing and Counseling

Talking about your troubles and concerns may well be all you need to get the perspective or insight that provides relief and clarity. And sometimes you need to go deeper than that to get to the root cause of the problem or condition. And that root cause may or may not be known to your conscious self.

Intuition and directed presence allow me to carefully tune into you and identify the primary players – childhood trauma, limiting beliefs, lifestyle habits, blocks in your energy system, toxic relationships or environments, lack of purpose etc. — that are keeping you in the cycle of suffering and contributing your anxiety, depression, illness, addiction, or distress.

“Mary works a magic that must be experienced firsthand. She has a knack for presenting sophisticated concepts clearly and then taking that foundation to a new, cosmic level of understanding and synthesis. From studying Reiki under her, to private sessions, to participating in many meaningful and memorable workshops, I just keep coming back! I am grateful for the opportunity I’ve had under her wing to expand my inner horizons, while being of service to the greater good.”

Laurie Mullen
Founder, Turn Around Teen, Madison, WI

“Whether it’s training, a personal session or a workshop, her enthusiasm, love and tremendous knowledge is apparent. Everything I’ve attended became a wonderful and exciting experience for me.”

Colleen Shannon
Reiki Master & EMF Balancing Technique® Practitioner, Elmhurst, IL

“Mary is amazing. I had such a wonderful experience in her classes. Mary radiates love and is passionate about her work, and that enthusiasm transfers in her teachings and to her students. There are not enough words to describe how much I enjoyed Mary as an instructor and as a person, or how much I was able to gain from her and the classes. I recommend Mary to anyone — no matter what level you are on in your spiritual journey.”

Natascha Malkemes
Reiki Master, Milwaukee, WI

“I highly recommend Mary for her meditation classes, one-on-one sessions, or any of the many different series she offers. Mary’s gifts and skill have provided me with new insights into who I am and my place and role in this world, and I now feel confident and filled with anticipation about what’s next.”

Michael Dix
Owner, Michael's Frozen Custard

“Awesome classes. Fantastic sessions. Everything that Mary has taught me guided me in making positive changes in my life. She is an incredible teacher who is fun and extremely knowledgeable. I have successfully used her CDs for meditation, stress reduction and healing myself, family and friends. Mary’s voice, intuitive feeling and timing make her CDs some of the best on the market.”

Jane M.
4th Grade Teacher

“I highly recommend Staying in the Flow monthly meditation group to anyone wishing to access their inner wisdom, experience greater states of awareness, and feel absolutely fabulous. Mary’s soothing and amazing voice and ability to connect with expanded states of consciousness is unparalleled in my book. She has the ability take me to places inside myself that I didn’t know existed and simply cannot reach on my own. I love coming here and my only wish is that it happened more than once a month!”

Sarah B.

“Mary is a loving and attuned teacher who creates a clear space for learning, growing, and connecting. She is also highly skilled and knowledgeable and has a wealth of experience, all of which I was enriched by as her student. Those of us who shared the classes formed a deep bond, we were using Reiki in ways far more advanced than any of us had expected or even hoped for, and we were left with a sense of both great achievement and greater potential waiting for us to go forth and fulfill.”

Liz Zélandais
Madison, WI

“I came to the Practitioner of Energetic Arts training when I realized that I was here to heal myself, but just how deep and profound the healing would be, I did not know.
Quite literally my whole life has shifted. I recovered memories from my past, my perspective of my story has shifted, I have released what no longer serves me, my business has grown, and my closest relationships have evolved. Most important, I have recognized that I am the woman I’ve always wanted to be: centered, connected, strong, intuitive, radiant and beautiful. Mary has been such gift to me. Her facilitation has been flawless. The space she holds allowed each of us to step deeper into our centers, creating a sacred bond of support that is safe, nurturing and whole. Mary is a magnificent gift and I honor her.”

Bree Schenkel
Owner, Deep Pilates

“Mary is a leading edge practitioner and a great teacher who fosters a sense of comfort, security and approachability in her classes. She takes the time to make sure that I “get” the material presented, and makes herself available to answer questions that come up, whether directly or indirectly related to the class material. I leave class feeling comfortable with what I learned, and excited to use in my own practice. I highly recommend Mary’s classes.”

Meditation and Spiritual Development

Meditation is the most important personal practice that you can cultivate because it is the quintessential tool to release resistant thought, align your energy, and connect to your higher consciousness.

I’ve recorded nine guided meditation CDs and programs, and countless customized meditation practices for individuals who want to shift their focus away from what they don’t want and on to what they do.

All of my work emerges from the gifts of this practice.

The Transformation Program

This program is for those who want to commit to a structure of healing, self-discovery, and evolution, at a pace that supports maximum benefit. We’ll create the program for you based on your unique situation and goals. These sessions are a combination of transpersonal healing and counseling, hypnotherapy, energy therapy and meditation practices.

We schedule 12 sessions over the course of 3-6 months. After each session, you receive a daily meditation practice and homework to keep you moving forward.

A sample program might look like this:

Session 1 —  Identify and transform the places where you get small, numb out, lose yourself, or recede into the background; take back your power.

Session 2 — Energy Healing: Listen to what your body wants you to be aware of; release patterns of tension, resistance or withholding.

Session 3 —  Address and release any ancestral or familial patterns that are unconsciously driving you.

Session 4 —  Evolve your inner saboteur, critic or judge, the parts of you that beat you up, keep you in patterns of shame, or prevent your evolution.

Session 5 — Energy Healing: Move into states of expanded, relaxed reception and open to what your Inner Being would like to communicate to you.

Session 6 — Bring to light and heal those parts of yourself that you experience as unloved or unlovable.

Session 7 —  Identify and release core limiting operating systems, such as I don’t fit in, I’m not worthy, I’m not enough.

Session 8 — Past-life regression. Discover and heal any unfinished business originating from another perspective of your experience.

Session 9 — Energy Healing: Receive healing light and energy, and flow into the deepest and most refined states of inner awareness and relaxation, allowing your Inner Being and Inner Resources to tend to you completely.

Session 10 — Connect more fully with your passion and purpose in this lifetime; identify the path to making it a reality.

Session 11 —  Address any relationships that need healing; attract empowering new companions into your life.

Session 12 —  Connect with a departed Loved One who has a message of support and encouragement for you.



We are at a pivotal time in our evolution where the traditional ways of healing and navigating our lives are shifting. Established societal institutions and hierarchical spiritual models are crumbling before our eyes. Our brains and nervous systems were not designed to process the constant onslaught of distractions and technology that surrounds us.

We can adapt, and we must. We can create new neural maps and new ways of intentionally collaborating with the larger forces of change that are upon us. We can consciously rewire our brain circuitry and energy systems to move into a higher octave of ourselves.

All of my work is designed to do just that.
