About Josie

You’re Here to Make an Impact.

I’m here to help you find stability so that your sensitivity & intuition can be your superpower.

There’s a calling that’s been taking shape within you. You’ve known for some time that you were meant to make the world a better place.

It’s so damn hard to live in this crazy world with everything going on though; how do you even start? It feels like constant background noise. Everything is too much; it’s chaotic out there. You have big ideas and plans to share with the world and you really want to help people, but most of the time getting through the day is overwhelming enough. You have moments of passion and then they get wiped out by people out there who just aren’t that nice. Or, you have moments of knowing how you want to serve the world, but then you have a hard time following through. You know you have important work to do in this life. You know you have a unique perspective or vision that can solve a big problem. But, it’s so hard to make headway. You’ve tried all sorts of things, maybe even considered yourself to be a seeker of sorts, but you haven’t found the thing that has stuck. Or maybe you’ve done years of talk therapy and still feel haunted by your past and your habits. Or maybe you’re new to your spiritual path and you don’t know where to start.

Either way, you know you need to do something with all that sensitive creativity you have and your passion for making the world better. Your soul is calling you.

You want to do this right. You don’t want to waste your money on some sort of bullshit healing modality or woo woo ponzi scheme. The solution to healing and transforming that anxiety into healing intuition is simple, but it’s not easy. It’s all about practice. This comes down to two things: practicing the right things, and practicing consistently. I help you find the right practices for you, and I hold you accountable for practicing regularly. People come to me when they’ve tried everything and not found results, or when they don’t even know what to try to make themselves feel better. Your soul is calling you forward. I’m here to help you find confidence and clarity in your life so that you can offer the world the gifts that only you have.
