I'm Isabelle (she/her) and I consider myself a change agent. My highest priority in life is to facilitate the liberation of my fellows from systems of oppression that keep us from living fully embodied lives. I love to laugh and strongly believe in the healing power of humor. I'm also dedicated to sustainable, mindful 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 the rainforest region of 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.
I've been a dabbler in astrology for as long as I can remember but started taking it seriously in 2008 when I studied with the late Kelly Lee Phipps, an astro physicist and master astrologer.
Much of my current practice is based on the traditions passed down through the lineage of my teachers and kinfolk. 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, trauma repair, and astrology have all enriched the work I do. I am also an ordained interfaith wedding officiant and ritualist.
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.
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 counseling, acupuncture, energy healing, breath 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.
