Hello! I am Andrea.
I am a healer, mother, wife, social entrepreneur, passionate cardio-boxer, and enthusiastic Kundalini yoga practitioner.
I am certified in the practice of Shamanic Energy Medicine through the Four Winds Society, founded by Dr. Alberto Villoldo; and in Body/Mind Therapy & Counseling through the Healers Forum and the former Lionheart Institute of Transpersonal Energy Healing.
My practice is rooted in my deep awe of the human process of healing and blossoming into wholeness; my love of spirituality, wisdom teachings, Mother Earth, and the Divine; and my own inner journey of connecting to the Frequency of Beauty.
I am here to create and hold sacred space for you - as you allow the process of becoming that person you most want to be, to unfold.
How did I get here?
I grew up in Romania. The road to becoming a Shamanic Energy Medicine practitioner and Body/Mind Therapist could hardly be further from where I began!
In my teens we moved to Germany, then Canada. Within days of graduating from university, I moved to Israel, starting my first job in high-tech business development. In my 20s I traveled the world. Converted to Judaism. Married. Divorced. And met my current husband and love of my life. Together, we started a new chapter, crossing continents again - this time to Boston, followed by Los Angeles. While living in Israel, I began to study Kabbalah, an ancient spiritual wisdom that deeply informed my life and work in the years to come.
With the move to Boston and birth of our first two children, I dedicated myself to a global non-profit, Spirituality for Kids, applying my business and marketing skills to a social-emotional educational framework for children. For years, I was living a meaningful, full life; I loved my job, my family and our community. Yet underneath the surface, there was a hum of dissatisfaction that none of this goodness could fill. I lived with a tension in my body, an everyday companion I later recognized as anxiety. And I thought - that’s how living felt! Additionally, I struggled with immense guilt for feeling not fully fulfilled with my life.
My journey into the world of healing began way back in 2004 in the Himalayas, India, where I started Reiki training. I felt the call (whisper) of Spirit, yet it wasn't my time yet. Eight years later in Los Angeles, the call became too loud to ignore - and I began my training as an Energy Healing Practitioner, at the time with no intention to practice, only to use the methods towards self-healing and personal growth.
The personal transformation I experienced in the following seven years through the continuous training in Energy Healing & Counseling and then Body-Mind Therapy, was remarkable.
I had reached a point where I could see the different parts of myself, and my real drivers in life. I recognized there were parts of me I had kept locked up, protected, and thus not living fully engaged in life. While healing my wounds, I ever-so-slowly learned profound self-love, which changed EVERYTHING.
Together with the realization of my true calling came also my youngest child into the world, who brought a new wave of unconditional love and gratitude to my heart.
In 2017, I was initiated in the healing traditions of the Amazon and the Andes at the Light Body School of The Four Winds Society, the world's most renowned school of energy medicine ("the Harvard of neo-shamanism" -Harper's Bazaar).
On my first night of the shamanic training that took place in the Californian Joshua Tree desert, I couldn’t sleep all night, when out of the blue I heard the spirits of the land say:
“Ever since you were very young, we’ve been waiting for you to come here and do this work. We’re so happy that you’re finally here.”
And just like that, after many years of travels, I had landed home.
It was and is - my personal journey that ignited a strong desire to guide and hold others who want to heal and grow.
It is my deep, sacred honor, to be here for you.
