I'm Isabelle and I consider myself a healing artist. My goal in life is to empower and facilitate deep and sustainable healing. I love to laugh and strongly believe in the transformative power of humor. I'm also dedicated to sustainable living and enjoy sharing my process through writing, movement, and sacred circle.
I hold a bachelor's degree in fine arts with a concentration in theater and have been practicing as a licensed massage therapist since 1999. In 2004 I began my training in clinical herbalism and started a certification process in The Arvigo Techniques of Mayan Abdominal Therapy. Two years later I lived and apprenticed with renowned botanist, healer, and author Dr. Rosita Arvigo in Belize, Central America. I completed my certification in 2008 and was initiated into the lineage of traditional healing passed down by her mentor, Don Elijio Panti.
Much of my practice is based on the traditions passed down through the lineage of my teachers. My great grandmother healed by a laying of the hands & prayer, and my grandmother was a card reader who also practiced augury- the art of interpreting omens from the flights of birds. I come by my gifts honestly, and I feel honored to keep these traditions alive in my practice by offering tarot consultations that integrate astrology, recovery, and holistic healing.
Intensives in ethics, bodywork, dance, yoga, herbal studies, somatics, and astrology have all enriched the work I do. I am state licensed through the Louisiana Board of Massage Therapy. I am also an ordained interfaith wedding officiant.
I enjoy working with clients who honor professional and personal boundaries, both mine and yours; clients who are willing to invest in self care and self love routines.
Perhaps the most valuable gifts of my training are my professional integrity and the ability to hold a safe space while your innate intelligence becomes activated. Though I cannot diagnose or solve your problems, I will extend compassion, respect, intuition and practical knowledge to help you along the way. You are your own healer, and my role is to facilitate awareness and communication between the physical, spiritual and emotional bodies. I may suggest lifestyle changes that will support your process, and my services are compatible with other holistic therapies such as acupuncture, counseling, energy work, physical therapy and chiropractic.
Whatever the circumstances require, I always have your best interest at heart. You can expect to leave your session feeling grounded, balanced, and deeply restored. This I can assure you.
