Have you been called to listen deeply?

The worlds of energy and spirit can be dynamic playgrounds for our learning, growth, and healing when approached with reverence and integrity. I offer my support as a guide to help you build a solid foundation in learning how to work with energy, and shamanism in grounded, heart-centered, practical and ethical ways.  


If you have been called to explore and listen deeply it is helpful to have a mentor that will help you nourish your connections and guide you in seeking and finding that which you seek within your own heart. If we are match, I would love to lend a hand in helping you better understand your expansive experiences and navigate putting them to use with integrity and clarity into your life & work.


My role as a mentor

I offer this work because I believe in the power it holds to help to be better, more balanced, embodied human beings.  After a lifetime of learning and over 23 years of working within the intuitive healing arts, I firmly believe that the worlds of energy, shamanism, and intuition are available for all who seek and willing to give themselves the time and permission to explore and am grateful for the chance to offer what I have learned (and am still learning) to others.


My role is to offer tools, skills and help you build personal custom crafted practices of working with Spirit, energy and intuition in ways that meet you, with honesty and authenticity. My role is to help you build skills and tools that work for you, your beliefs and life.  My role is to offer you the best I have to offer, to lead by example and encourage collaboration in ways that you feel honored, seen and supported as you heal and learn.

 My specialties for this work include


  • Heart-Centered Shamanic Journeying Skills: Learn to journey within to meet with and work with your power animals and spirit allies in grounded ways that support your life & work.


  • Animal Communication: Learn the gifts of telepathy in practical ways that support you as the animal lover you are. I specialize in working with trainers, dog walkers, veterinarians and vet techs. 


  • Energetic Boundaries Skills:  Learn the embodiment & boundary skills that are vital when exploring energy, shamanism or for anyone who considers themselves empathetic or intuitive. 


  • Intuitive Development Skills: Learn how to work with and integrate your intuition into your daily life and healing practice in balanced, grounded and ethical ways.

What mentoring sessions are like

Each meeting we have will be focused around your learning goals to learn new skills and integration skills to integrate the new practices into your life and work. We will build on your prior experience and knowledge. Each meeting we have will include time for questions, practice and you will be given homework to deepen your practice between sessions.   


Sessions feel organic and collaborative. You and I will work as a team and craft each session to match your learning style and build on your prior learning and experience. Sessions are rich in skill-building so your healing toolkit will be overflowing with resources with each meeting we have. 


Sessions happen at my healing studio in Bellingham, WA or over the phone. 


 Initial session is 90 minutes @ $150

Follow up sessions are 60 minutes each$100

On going mentoring: We can custom build a package plan when we are working together over the course of several months. Ask me for details. 


Love notes about this offering...

Joanna has a very warm way of connecting with students.

Her listening skills are excellent and can come back with clear answers. She has the ability to get the message across in a beautiful manner.

I have enjoyed Joanna’s ability to help me blend my intuition and interest in animal communication with my professional work as an animal trainer.

She creates a safe space for you to try unfamiliar exercises and listens to your concerns with compassion.

Over the course of our short time together I have noticed a shift in my awareness and that I am in the world differently than before.

I really appreciate that Joanna is able to tailor the sessions exactly to my needs at that moment and I am always very excited when it is time to see her again.
