Even the most well-intentioned energy workers, coaches, and spiritual practitioners can harm their clients if they don’t understand trauma. Here’s a personal story about how an energy worker harmed me.

I am a trained journalist and business consultant with nearly two decades of marketing and advertising experience in retail, ecommerce, tech, nonprofit, business-to-business, and higher education. I’m experienced in marketing, branding, and operations initiatives with companies ranging from early stage startup to $20M in annual revenue. I’m also a rational mystic, shadow worker, astrologer, and tarot reader. I advocate for a science-based, socially responsible, and trauma-informed approach to spirituality and conscious business. I teach a practical, nuanced perspective of spirituality, intuitive development, conscious marketing, and related topics to help you discern the bullshit from the cool shit.
I take serious issue with the problematic culture of commercialized spirituality.
Spiritual work is sacred work. As a practitioner, people trust us with their deepest level of vulnerability and we have a duty to honor that within our interactions, but once the desire for success overtakes the desire to serve the greater good, the only thing you’re serving is your own ego. The work loses integrity.
Thanks to capitalism, commoditization, and spiritual narcissism, spirituality has become a trendy aesthetic rather than a sacred practice, and the healing process has been converted to a business model that uses sacred terminology to make sales pitches. But healing and intuition are not products or marketing gimmicks –– they are the product of thousands of tears, ache, pain, the deep soul work of burning down the illusions of many versions of ourselves.
All of my years in marketing and advertising and my experiences with “influencing” and “coaching” has made me incredibly conscious of how broken the spiritual community is, and determined to do it differently.
As an advocate for ethical, socially responsible, and trauma-informed approaches to business and management, I educate business owners on the intersection of business and social systems to catalyze a culture shift toward a more conscious paradigm of business and marketing. I apply a cross-disciplinary, systems-thinking approach to deconstruct the negative psycho-social impact of capitalism on humanity and devise ethical strategies to reduce or eliminate harm.
