Crystal Energy Therapy
Crystals have held our fascination for thousands of years by their energy and sheer beauty. Knowledgeable healers in every culture on Earth have used their powers since time began, and the amazing attributes of crystals can bring healing into our lives now, more than ever before.
As a Medical Intuitive, I gather information from your energy field about the systems, organs, chakras and auric layers that may be out of balance. This allows me to then use the crystals to pull out negative energy, balance and charge the affected areas, “mend” torn or otherwise damaged parts of your field and create deep relaxation and well-being. When the energy work is done, I will gently pull you out of your deep state of relaxation and we will talk about what came up for you, and the information I gathered from your field.
A typical session: fully clothed, you lie on the massage table and relax, noticing whatever sensations might come up. With eyes closed let yourself be carried by the pure healing energy coming through your energy field. You may become aware of tingling, pulling, lifting or light pressure, sounds or visual effects, which are all the results of the non-physical energy work. I will rarely touch you with my hands, to perform polarity balancing of the minor chakras.
Healing the individual: your session will be completely tailored to your needs, because your energy field will determine the healing that needs to take place. The most important or urgent issues will be the ones to surface first, usually during the initial session. In subsequent sessions, other information is likely to come up and tends to be less involved. The frequency of the visits is determined by both the client and myself. You will become progressively more aware of the changes in your energy field, and will begin to know intuitively when to come back for further treatment.
Remember: this is your healing, and your energy field knows what it needs. Become attuned to those needs, and you will be doing a great service to your health and well-being.

Systemic Family Constellations
and Crystal Constellations
Systemic Family Constellations and Crystal Constellations
Please see below for workshop details.
We all live in systems, that are basically fields of being and interaction, also known as morpho-genetic fields, as termed by research scientist Dr. Rupert Sheldrake. These fields surround and penetrate our physical and energy bodies, and serve as containers for our interactions with one another. The field that contains the interactions of a family is known as the Family System.
Family Constellations or Systemic Family Therapy was developed by German therapist, Bert Hellinger. Having lived with the Zulus in South Africa for ten years as a Jesuit priest, Hellinger realized that their way of approaching illness included much more than just addressing the individual, but rather involved the family and sometimes even the tribe as a whole. He went on to create this method, after studying Gestalt therapy, Neuro-Linguistic Programming and other traditional and non-traditional therapeutic approaches.
Family Constellations works on the premise that there are unspoken and unconscious laws that operate in any given system. When these laws are violated and the system is compromised, as the result of unnatural or untimely death, or other traumatic events, the members of the system try to “right” it, so to speak, by unconsciously aligning with the victims of the trauma, be it from one or many generations back. Sometimes we align ourselves with the perpetrators as well, not as the result of any conscious decision, but rather to provide the system with the means to right itself. Unfortunately, although we choose these alignments unconsciously from a place of love, and not out of egoic pride or rebellion, the system is rarely corrected through our unconscious alignments. What these alignments do offer, however, is the opportunity to be seen as key elements to be realigned. Family Constellations makes the connections and disconnections in the system visible by representing certain members of the system and inviting them to interact with each other. It is through these interactions, led by the facilitator, that the family system is able to “see”, through the eyes of the person whose field is represented, that amends are made and wounds are healed.
How is it done?
Family Constellations is generally practiced in a group setting. The person who is “working” chooses among those present several people to represent individuals in their system, including themselves, and has them stand in relation to each other, however that person sees fit. The representatives literally “step into” a field that they know nothing about and begin to feel what the person they represent may have felt at one time. Keep in mind that whether the people represented are still of this world or not, the energy field remains intact. With the help of the facilitator, the representatives begin to interact with each other. Although not every constellation culminates in a perfect realignment of the family system, there is almost always a change that happens and that is perceived by those still living in that system. For example, a woman who had not spoken with her brother for the past 20 years got a phone call from him, just one week after her constellation. These types of examples abound, and personally I have experienced profound changes in my own family dynamics thanks to this work.
I spent two years, from 2008 – 2010, training with Andrea Bosbach, a German social worker who had worked extensively with one of Bert Hellinger’s students, Claudia Mengel. Her system differed from Hellinger’s in that she used colored mats to represent the members of the family system, that the people from the group would be chosen to step onto. In this way, the identity of the people being represented was unknown, so the mind had nothing to stand on, allowing the energies to come through the representatives in a more pure and exact manner than when more information is known. As an example, during a constellation I participated in, when I stepped onto the mat and was asked what I was feeling, my initial response came out in French (I happen to be fluent in French). After the constellation, when the participant was asked to share (a voluntary sharing, never an obligation) who was who, she said that I was her grandfather, who was born and raised in Paris, France.
One-on-one practice of this therapy works on the exact same principle: representing members of a system to render their interactions visible. I represent them with objects; mainly crystals, stones, wooden figures, etc. The person working chooses the objects to represent themselves, and one or several other members of the system, and places them in a way that portrays how they see the relationships. Working with these elements, we are able to disentangle some of the dynamics that are keeping the person stuck or in a place of discomfort, which by the same token settles the energy in the family system.
Family Constellations Therapy is one of the most effective and powerful therapeutic tools I have had the privilege to experience and practice. The Stone Readings that I offer are based on traditional Family Constellations and can be very effective at resolving issues that tend to resist resolution.

Astrology Chart Readings and Classes
Astrology is the oldest symbol system known to humanity. Longtime considered a valuable tool and scholarly endeavor, it was used extensively in collaboration with medicine, alchemy, astronomy and meteorology. Then the Church decided to demonize the practice, and modern day science followed suit, deeming it unscientific and unworthy of attention. Some astrologers claim, however, that today’s politicians secretly use astrology for timing events on a regular basis.
For me, astrology is an invaluable tool of self-awareness, useful for discovering one’s purpose in life. The natal chart, or birth chart, is the two-dimensional rendition of the interplay of the energies present at the time of birth, as represented by the planets, signs and houses. In other words, the chart is like a blueprint for the unfolding of a human life. Nothing is set in stone, since the language of astrology is about essence and not about deeds, and our free will allows us to choose one path or another, at any moment in time. Astrology can, however, teach us about our tendencies and abilities, and show us where we would benefit from putting our energy.
Based on a system of 12, Astrology combines the 4 elements (Fire, Earth, Air and Water) with the 3 qualities (Cardinal, Fixed and Mutable), resulting in 12 signs, each a unique combination of an element paired with a quality. These are the twelve basic archetypes that describe the human experience. They are represented by the signs (Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius and Pisces) and are repeated in the 12 houses. These archetypes also exist in the planets, with a slightly different dynamic, as there is not one planet for each sign, but rather a dual rulership system. Other elements contribute to the overall picture, such as asteroids, lunar nodes and the aspects formed between the planets, nodes, asteroids and cardinal points.
Astrology is the art of synthesizing myriad bits of information into a cohesive narrative that allows the native (from nativus: born of) to comprehend the greater forces at work, and thus be able to take ownership of personal traits and tendencies, acting from a place of self-knowledge and self-determination. We are each unique expressions of energy, and astrology can help us understand who we are, how we show up in the world and how we can best utilize our resources to benefit ourselves, our loved ones and all of humanity. It is when we are truly aligned with our highest purpose that we align with God and with all of Creation, bringing true harmony and peace on Earth.
Astrology for the Novice: 6-part series
This is a series that covers the basics of astrology. Starting with symbols and glyphs, we then take a look at the signs, studying the four elements and the three qualities that make up the twelve archetypal signs and houses. We also learn to read the domains of influence, the planets and their aspects, and slowly graduate into interpretation. During each class we will take the time to look at one or more individual charts to illustrate what is being taught and to give students a look at their own astrology. This series will enable you to become fluent in the language of astrology and feel confident to begin interpreting on your own.
Dates for 2020: TBA
All classes are held at the Algiers Point Holistic Center, New Orleans, LA 70114
