Distance & In-Person Intuitive Reiki Practitioner & Teacher

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

My opening page here still holds true about the work I do and how I support my clients, especially through one-on-one distance intuitive Reiki sessions. I am working full time as we are all Socially Distancing during the Pandemic. This is a time when we most need energetic support. The collective energy is stressed out, scared, sad, mad, in the unknown…. so many things… while also holding hope for a paradigm shift with positive shifts happening and ahead. We need to do what we can, from home, on zoom, or outdoors in nature, to take care.

I am seeing clients in my Lafayette office, and many clients are choosing distance Reiki- though this is always changing and I am flexible for your comfort level! Distance Reiki is such a gift because you can receive a Reiki session from the comfort of your own home and reap the benefits of the session. You also get to talk to a listening ear (me!), be guided through individual, deep restorative meditation with visualizations, and I will pull a card for you at the end. It is 90 minutes of self-care and energetic healing I am here to share with you. I have created a variety of different appointment times throughout the week. If none of those work for you, text me. We’ll find a time to make it work. I am flexible and am lucky to have a flexible and supportive family so I can continue to serve my clients. I love my work and it is as powerful as a distance as if you were in my cozy cave of an office in Lafayette, Colorado! Please click here for a link to my pricing and packaging. Please contact me if you need a COVID discount, or a name your own price- I have a few of those available each month.

I am offering a Tuesday Night Circle of Support on Zoom at 7pm Mountain Time. This is a membership group and though we are at capacity, there are times when there is room for more. We have created an amazing community together.  Please read more details here. 

Circling Together, Gretchen Pangilinan of Winged Heart Rooted Spirit, and I, are now offering a weekly Guided Meditation with Reiki on Zoom, Wednesday afternoons at 4:30pm Mountain Time, for 30 minutes. This community is incredible and anyone can join- try us out for free- monthly subscription is just $12/month.  Read more and register here.

Now onto my opening page….

You CAN learn to dance in the eye of the hurricane of life, no matter what or who may be around you. Most of my clients are “empaths” and quite intuitive (sensitive to others’ energy). This can make it harder to dance in the eye of life, and I am here to help you do just that. I help you stand in your power and your truth, through intuitive energetic work using Reiki. Standing in the eye, and keeping your boundaries is about being aware of and setting energetic boundaries and clearing energy that it not yours.

Energy that is not yours can be from other people, old patterns, family patterns, and trauma, from this lifetime and others. When you clear energy, your own body/mind/spirit (chakra and energetic system) is stronger and flows with ease, leading to more wellness. I’m here to help you bring awareness to your own energetic body 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 (or at least be calm) in any hurricane, no matter what is going on around you.

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. I can hold space for you, whether you are in the middle of a hurricane or Intuitive Reiki and energy healing is just calling to you.

I love working with clients one-on-one, and each session is a powerful way to heal. I am also a teacher, and I teach Reiki Classes (online and small in-person classes when safe), lead Reiki Shares (during the pandemic they are on zoom). Set Boundaries with Compassion and Love is a course I am now incorporating into my courses.

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 the family patterns of addiction and codependency and I am here to hold space for your healing.

I created the class, Set Boundaries with Compassion and Love (soon to be incorporated into a long-running program of community and support) 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 hold a comfortable and brave space of grace 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.

With Reiki Love and 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.
