For 17 years my passion has been helping others become the healthiest, happiest version of themselves, by guiding them towards their own inner healer and authority. As a society, we have become so conditioned that we can’t even hear our own voice anymore. I feel that the path to true happiness and prosperity is one led from the heart, aligned with the God-Power within us, and we can only live a prosperous life when we act in a way that resonates with our soul’s purpose.
My intention is to help you reconnect with who you really are, and help you remember all that you ever were and have yet to become, by guiding and supporting you in aligning with your highest, most authentic self.
I have been empathic and highly intuitive my whole life. My earliest conscious memory of being able to feel the energy around me was at the age of 5.
Growing up, I had some rough teenage years, choosing many unhealthy outlets as my coping skills of choice – which now I understand were really just my way of numbing myself from feeling so deeply.
I have had my own emotional and physical health challenges ranging from traumatic experiences, NDE, PTSD, depression, anxiety, PCOS, MTHFR, Epstein Barr, Chronic Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, hyper/hypothyroid, chronic kidney & bladder issues, chronic pancreatitis, and chronic pain & inflammation. So when I say I am in it with you – I AM IN IT.
I became a mother when I was 15 years old, which honestly saved my life! My second child is autistic, my third has Kawasaki Disease, and I lost my fourth, our daughter Hope, in the 5th month of my pregnancy.
In 2016, the loss of my daughter changed me forever. I often say that her death was my birth because I was given another chance at life – but from a completely new perspective. During my surgery after her birth, I had a near death experience and I was given a choice of whether or not I was going to stay on Earth.
I chose to stay, but I didn’t realize that it would mean the death of everything that I knew.
After that experience, everything about me changed. I felt like a stranger in my body living someone else’s life.
I spent the next several years trying to fit into my old life, my old relationships, and my old way of practicing… but nothing ever really quite felt right.
I grieved those old parts of me, the person I used to be, the friendships I had, my career that I once loved and worked so hard to build.
When I finally started to accept that I was never going to be that person again, I leaned into who I was (un)becoming, and started listening to her instead of resenting her.
Naturally, the people in my life could feel this too. I wasn’t the person they always knew, and the relationships weren’t the same.
I had boundaries. I had a fire fueling my drive. I had a desire to CREATE life, rather than stand by and let life happen to me. I was done being what everyone else wanted me to be. I was ready to fearlessly align with who I was and use the new gifts that had been given to me.
Previously, being empathic and intuitive, I could feel the energy and emotions of others, so I had already incorporated some of these healing modalities into my practice – this wasn’t anything new. What was new, however, was that now not only was I feeling their energy and emotions, I was becoming submerged into their subconscious. I was seeing their memories and pinpointing exactly what they felt, why, and where it came from. I was able to feel and see things I never could have imagined.
Little did I know that this new level of awareness was the beginning of Alchemy Healing.
It took me 3 years just to even begin to process what was happening to me. Within the unravelling, I lost relationships I thought I’d have forever. I (90%) walked away from my successful nutritional practice of 10 years and took a 9-5 job for 18 months that had absolutely nothing to do with healing or healthcare, which allowed me to get real clear on what I wanted.
Just in time for March of 2020 – which messed me all UPSIDE DOWN AND SIDEWAYS – but ultimately birthed everything that had been gestating within me for the past 3.5 years.
It took nearly every single thing to be stripped away, leaving me with nothing but who I was at my core to even remotely begin to understand why this had all happened – for me – not to me.
As much as I felt completely lost most of the time, I also knew I was exactly where I needed to be at every moment of the process.
I have learned many lessons over the years, at times, excruciating… but I believe in finding a way to love all of the parts of our story. Diving deep and becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable is the thing that has not only saved me, but helped me discover who I really am and what I’m here to do.
Holding on to everything I knew and thought I wanted – by clinging on to the old version of myself – I was actually holding myself back from living the life I didn’t think I was worthy of. I was asked to completely surrender (and yes, I was absolutely kicking and screaming at times) – and in this transformation is where I became an alchemy energy healer.
In my opinion, healing is about leaning into the hard times – the lessons, the heartache, and the fuckery. The healing is in the process of transformation – the alchemy of our lives.
In order to fully heal, you must be willing to go through the darkness, by feeling everything there is to feel. We can not heal what we refuse to acknowledge. What we resist, persists, and only drives deeper into our soul.
Life is weird. And hard. And sad… but also incredible when we let it be.
Today, I am honored to be a Spiritual Alchemy Guide where I get to use my gifts as an Intuitive Transformational Healer to teach and support others in their own healing journey.
I encourage you to take a look around, and please feel free to reach out with any questions!

Healing is messy. It is not linear. It is not always kind, beautiful, or graceful. It can be relentless, tragic…and utter chaos– AUTUMN SMITH, FNTP, INTUITIVE HEALER
