“You can dance in a hurricane, but only if you’re standing in the eye.”
-Brandi Carlile

Life can show up like a hurricane- partners and family members become ill from mental illness and addiction, families change, tragedies happen, babies are born and rock your world and sense of who you are and what you want for your life, partnerships can crumble at the most inopportune moments, jobs change…. Life happens- it is always changing and can seem like a hurricane. Are you able to stand in the eye? Are you able to find stillness and listen to your true self, or are you sucked up by the wind, swirling in panic and fear of the unknown of the changes of life?

You CAN learn to dance in the eye of the hurricane of life when it feels like you are getting swept away. It is about setting energetic boundaries and it is about clearing energy that it not yours- clearing old patterns and learn tools for letting go and letting your energy flow. I’m here to help you bring awareness to your own mind/body/spirit connection and how to heal yourself through a variety of different daily practices and modalities. We work together to set new patterns in your life, to release what no longer serves, so you can stand in your energy, and dance in the hurricane, no matter what is going on around you.

And life doesn’t necessarily have to be a hurricane at the moment to join me in your healing and transformation process… I have clients who are feeling a little stuck, who have an ache or pain that just won’t leave their body, or they are really interested and intrigued by Reiki and Intuitive work! Check out the rest of my website to see what I offer.

Part of my work is to raise awareness and conversation about codependency and healthy relationships around recovery in families, while working to take the shame and blame out of the family disease of addiction. Often times the road to recovery breeds codependency across the generations, and it is not always clear that this family disease is what caused it. You don’t have to have immediate family with addiction to have it affect you- it affects generations- look up epigenetics if you are not familiar with it!

I have had my own journey of learning about and healing and recovery, over the past 10 years, and is what gives me the strength to share my work and tools with others. I have family members who are in recovery and on their path of healing, working toward healing depression and anxiety, and others who have not yet found a path to recovery, and those with deep denial that there is a need for recovery. I understand and I am here to hold space for your healing.

I created the class, Set Boundaries with Compassion and Love which teaches people a bit about addiction, recovery and setting energetic boundaries. My clients are ready to commit to their own path of recovery, and are ready to find their voice and their power, and to stop getting drained/angry/fearful/depressed/anxious because of their life situation or what others in their life are working on.

I am an Intuitive Reiki Practitioner and Teacher. I bring together the past 10 years of healing and skills I have learned and live daily, from my Master’s degree in Applied Healing Arts, 10 years in Alanon, Yoga and Reiki training, and 2 years of Intuitive training. I offer a new client consultation Reiki session and 6 month commitment packages. You meet with me in my office in Lafayette, CO or distance, over the phone- be sure to read the testimonials throughout my website.

I hold a comfortable and brave space for you to share how life is showing up and I will listen, holding the energetic space. I have experienced the power of simple practices and will help you ground and clear from an embodied place.

I also teach these skills through different classesSet Boundaries with Compassion and Love and I also teach Reiki 1, 2, advanced and Master Teacher Training Reiki classes throughout the year, and offer a monthly Reiki Share. A life-long teacher, I love to give students the tools, confidence and possibility to heal themselves, through guiding them and helping them move energy using daily practices and one-on-one Reiki sessions with me.

With Gratitude,

“There is a certain relaxed state I get to from Reiki that I have not felt before, while also simultaneously feeling like I had a successful, mind clearing session with a counselor. I always feel lighter, as Tekla helps me to get rid of the baggage that is weighing me down. Sometimes it’s my own and other times it’s from those around me that I have taken on. I am so grateful to have met Tekla and Reiki, it has become an important part of my life and well-being, helping with anxiety and depression.”


“I signed up to take Tekla’s Reiki 1 class without knowing anything about her or about Reiki. I was just following an intuitive hit that told me this is the thing to do now. And I am so glad I did! I have taken many classes with Tekla since then. My journey with Reiki has been gentle yet profound. The more I work with Reiki, the more potent the energetic shifts become. Reiki is now a daily practice for me and I am a better person for it. Tekla is a kind soul with great passion for what she does, and a gifted healer.”


“After my sessions with Tekla, I feel like a better version of myself. I feel lighter & more present. She has shared with me various techniques that are helping me to become a better parent, a better partner & a better friend. I attended her class, An Energetic Perspective on Addiction. The perspective I gained on my own addictive behavior and that of my loved ones has been life-altering. Tekla was able to share some powerful insights into these relationships in a very personal, meaningful way. With every session with Tekla, my life is unfolding in a more honest and beautiful way. I would like to encourage anyone that is considering a class or session with Tekla to go for it, there is everything to gain.”


“Tekla holds space in a non-judgmental and caring way, accepting one’s authentic self as they are in any given moment. During our distance intuitive Reiki healing sessions, I am able to reach a place of stillness and calm, similarly to during meditation. She facilitates this using Reiki and other healing tools such as visualizations. She is able to offer thoughtful, intuitive insights into challenges I had been experiencing. The information she provided allowed me to approach life challenges in a new way and see them from a different perspective. I felt less “stuck” with certain problems, and feel that working with Tekla allowed energy to move and release. After working with her, I gained clarity and felt more grounded. I definitely recommend working with her!”


“Tekla’s ability to be present and intuitive is unparalleled. Though I was a bit skeptical, I felt compelled to seek distance intuitive Reiki with Tekla during a period of tumultuous transition. I was at a crossroads – my health was affected – my spirit was wavering – I didn’t recognize the mother I had become – I was seeking inner peace amidst what felt like turmoil, within myself and within several relationships – Tekla supported me to move energy and emotional blocks that were not solely mine and that no longer served. What I experienced in Tekla’s presence was nothing short of a remarkable miracle – my entire life has shifted – for myself, my children, the greater good and for the seven generations.”


Take some time. Treat yourself. You deserve it.

You can and you will dance in the eye of the hurricane of life.
