Hello and Welcome.

You may have found me because 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 I can help you find the peace, well-being, and spiritual connection that you seek,

the answer is yes I can. 

Hi, I’m Mary.

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

Through my personal sessions, energy therapy trainings, spiritual development workshops, and meditation classes and recordings, you will:

  • Heal emotionally, physically, mentally, and spiritually;
  • Get so comfortable in your own skin, with your own thoughts, and your own experience of yourself that you have nothing to hide, protect, or guard against;
  • Experience the genuine peace, confidence, and ease that is the natural outcome of aligning with your own wise stream of Source Energy.

What I Do

With more than 25 years of training, practice, and experience, I have helped all kinds of people get sustained relief – and discover and create their higher and more joyful potential. I welcome your inquiries to explore how I may best be of service to you.

“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.”

Guided Meditations

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.

Freedom from Alcohol Addiction

dependence, or drinking too much

You are not a victim and you are not powerless. You are not lacking in moral character or willpower. In fact, you are powerful beyond measure.

The latest research says that addiction is primarily a disease of the brain. Through repeated use of an addictive substance, our nucleus accumbens, or “pleasure center,” is flooded with dopamine, the chemical associated with good feelings.

But it is more than that. It is also a “dis-ease” of the incongruency of our conscious self with our subconscious self. Until there is agreement between these levels of our consciousness, we will continue to be at war with ourselves.

Utilizing hypnotherapy, specific meditation techniques, and energy medicine protocols, we will align all the parts of your consciousness so that you are completely congruent with yourself and your intention to be alcohol-free.
