Stop silencing your inner self

Sensitive Souls...

It's time to take your power back!

Our bodies have an innate wisdom and our higher selves have been here before… they know the way.

This intelligence is available to all of us, but sometimes it can feel confusing. External noise, patterns from childhood, and trauma, can all interfere with our connection to ourselves. When we can make space to foster that connection, we can begin to tap into that wisdom, and live from a more whole and grounded place.

As sensitive souls we feel so deeply the energy around us and because of this I believe we require a certain kind of care.

"Healing is embracing what is most feared; healing is opening what has been closed, softening what has hardened into obstruction, healing is learning to trust life."
Jeanne Achterberg

Intuitive Reading

By connecting into your energy I am able to see, hear, and feel any messages Spirit wishes to communicate. I will share intuitive guidance along with messages from spirit or loved ones who are near. We will end the session with an Angel oracle card pull.

An Intuitive Reading is for you if you are looking for guidance, validation, or connection. No two readings are the same.

Hi, I'm Danica!

a former-expat, an empath, and mom of 3

I’m also a professional psychic medium, which is funny, because for most of my life I didn’t want anyone to know I talked to the dead. Like many sensitive souls, I believed the story that I was “too sensitive” and spent a lifetime abandoning and shrinking myself, building walls of protection around my heart.

By age 14 I had an autoimmune diagnosis and was suffering from panic attacks. I have struggled with anxiety, depression, and chronic health issues with little relief from conventional medicine.

Spending most of my adult life treating symptoms with only tiny windows of relief, and the more my symptoms would flare, the more aggressive I would become with trying to “fix” myself. I was pushing and forcing myself through everything I did. Overriding my body’s signals and my inner wisdom. Neglecting my needs, keeping my mediumship a secret, and making myself smaller and smaller.

I lived this way, until I no longer could. 

Eventually, I began to notice that my symptoms, and my spirit team, were messengers, trying to get my attention. My body wasn’t broken, it was trying to help me. Spirit wasn’t haunting me, they were trying to guide me.

I gave up on rigid healing protocols and instead got curious. In pausing to listen, I uncovered just how much I was suppressing, including trauma.

I’m not “healed” because I no longer view healing as black and white. What I am is in partnership with my body, and my inner wisdom.

I have worked in therapeutic, wellness, spiritual, and corporate environments, including clinical settings in New York and wellness workshops in Singapore. I hold a master’s degree in art therapy and counseling with a certification in integrative somatic trauma therapy. I’m a reiki practitioner, and certified yoga teacher, and I offer private intuitive readings, energy healings, or group workshops.

When I am not wrangling snacks for my three kids, I can be found writing, painting, or desperately trying to keep my houseplants alive.
