    Saori Murphy


I am so glad you found your way here! Your presence reveals the desire and willingness to step more fully into the highest expression of YOU. The you that has the right to live with more joy, love and harmony.

I believe we all have life experiences that can mold and shape us into who we are, and sometimes those experiences can create limitations or dis-ease within our energetic body, emotional wellbeing, and creative or spiritual growth.

Through my own healing journey as an empath who struggled with old trauma and emotional challenges, I discovered my strength and resilience by allowing myself to be with and release the emotions and feelings that were keeping me blocked from my core truths. This took patience, self-love, radical self-acceptance, and the willingness to be supported.

In honor of your commitment, I promise to meet you where you are with the full intention of being in partnership to support you home, to your truest and most empowered self.

Through a combination of Intuition, Divine Guidance, Energy Healing, and sometimes the use of Creativity, I will gently guide and support you through a deep meditative healing, and/or creative expression to support your mind, body and spirit back into balance and alignment. This may include the clearing of any energetic blocks, belief systems and/or patterns that are no longer serving you. You will also receive tools and practices to further support you in your healing process and integration.

If you feel called, let’s connect to what is true for you! You deserve a prana-filled life, and it would be an honor to support you on your healing journey!

    Margie Hall

Sometimes when we feel stuck in life, it is the energy of the past that weighs us down. I like to support my clients by healing what holds them back from living their best lives. This is a method that I have used to support my own personal transformation. Here’s my story: 

In 1986, I graduated with a Bachelor of Science and then spent the next 35 years working in the Information Technology industry. Always aware of my intuitive gifts, after a divorce in 2000, I started exploring my intuitive and empathic abilities and inadvertently set myself on a 20-year spiritual journey. 

Through that journey I uncovered repressed/suppressed childhood trauma and sought to understand the impact those events had on the quality of my life and adult relationships. While I found traditional counseling effective, I was innately guided to go deeper and understand the impact that trauma had on my soul. After exploring many types of alternative therapies, I found energy healing to be the most effective. In recent years, after suffering from trauma once again (when a loved one died by suicide) I was guided to enroll in the School of Intuitive Studies to heal myself and realize the call to help others.  

Being certified as an Advanced Intuitive Healer and Reiki practitioner means I can use my intuitive gifts to heal and clear stuck/suppressed emotions, limiting belief systems, unhealthy dynamics in personal/work relationships and self-sabotaging behavior patterns. For those with early childhood trauma, I can also help reparent and heal the inner child. 

There is nothing like the feeling of truly letting go of the past, feeling at peace and moving forward in life feeling empowered and unencumbered. I would love to help you heal what’s holding you back!

Welcome Beautiful Soul.

I believe that most of us on this spiritual journey are looking for love, joy, and happiness for ourselves and others.  But oftentimes we are blocked by past experiences in this lifetime as well as past lifetimes.  These blocks keep us from fully loving and accepting ourselves.  Healing and coming to a place of love and compassion for our authentic self, the essence of our spirit, allows us to express our true selves to the world.  Your authentic presence is a gift to this lifetime.

I have 25 years of experience as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker specializing in Trauma Therapy.  I use a mind, body therapy called EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). True and lasting healing must go deeper than talk therapy into the unconscious negative beliefs held in the mind, body, and spirit. Through my work with Wendy De Rosa and The School of Intuitive Studies, I have uncovered my own intuitive gifts and the power of energy healing.  Now as a Graduate of the Advanced Intuitive Healer Training Program, I have the combined wisdom of my experience as a Therapist and the skills as an Intuitive Healer.

On my own personal journey, I have experienced my own trauma and loss.   Following the deaths of loved ones, my heart opened to the gift of communicating with those souls that have passed on. I have always been highly sensitive and emphatic. On the one hand, my experience and emphatic gifts have served me well.  On the other hand, I have struggled with anxiety and depression when I was unable to recognize my own energy and needs.  Working with Wendy and the IHTP community, I have healed and grown to value and honor myself.  I now appreciate my gifts and identify as an Empowered Empath.

People describe me as having a very grounded and wise presence and they can easily open up and trust me.   Connecting to Divine guidance, combined with the wisdom of my experience,  I provide a healing space of unconditional love, support, and a co-creative healing session. If you feel called to schedule a healing session with me, I would be honored to walk beside you on your journey.  Using Intuition and Divine guidance, I will partner with you to discover and clear energetic blocks, negative beliefs, and patterns. This opens the way for your gifts, strengths, and the full expression of your true and Authentic Self.

I live in California just outside of Yosemite National Park.   I felt drawn to the trees and mountains to heal myself, clients, and visitors.   In addition, to offering  Energy Healing sessions, I have a Private Practice specializing in Intensive EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) sessions in a natural retreat setting.  In my spare time, I love working with Mother nature, plants, and nature spirits to create a sanctuary and healing garden.

   Maria Loughlin

Maria began her healing journey as one of Wendy’s De Rosa’s one-on-one clients. She came to Wendy after suffering the loss of several loved ones in a short period of time, which left her feeling untethered and deeply lost. Through their work together, Maria discovered a path back to herself, which awakened a calling to help others facilitate their own healing. As a Certified Advanced Intuitive Energy Healer and Certified Facilitator at the School of Intuitive Studies, Maria has cultivated a practice that supports reconnection with Self, with Spirit, and with Divine love, all elements that she found crucial in healing her own heart.

   Mary Watson

Mary Watson is a versatile and experienced energy healer. As a  teenager, Mary struggled with the loss of her parents and several  other family members. She found exercise as an outlet for her  loneliness and suffering. As she began to heal, she discovered a  passion for helping others through exercise. She became a  Pilates trainer, and then a studio owner. After extensive training  in anatomy, she became a certified Movement and Postural  Analyst. In working with her clients, Mary began to realize that  she was an intuitive empath.This knowledge created a natural  pathway to her work in energy healing. As a Reiki master and  advanced graduate from the School of Intuitive Studies, she has  developed her own unique modality she refers to as Intuitive  Wellness. By assessing her clients postural alignment, she can  address their energetic misalignments. Her approach includes  working with the energetic pathways of her client’s mental,  emotional, spiritual and physical bodies. Mary also includes  intuitive healing, breath work, guided meditation, chakra  balancing, Bodyreading™ and Reiki in her sessions. Working  together with her clients, Mary is able to help locate, shift, and  release these blocks, resulting in restoring balance and  embodiment to them. She believes it is her life’s journey to help  others find their own special gifts and purpose.  

Mary lives with her husband and daughter in South Carolina. She  enjoys gardening, music, oil painting and spending time with her  family and pets. 

Mary is serving as an Assistant for the 2021 IHTP. She would be  honored to guide you through a healing session.

   Linda Bayer

Our lives can be seen as a journey… sometimes the ride is smooth and sometimes it is down right rocky. The hard times can seem overwhelming and we can feel very alone. 

We can feel confused, sad, anxious and depressed. When grief surfaces we may not know where to turn for help. We may not even know where the strong emotions come from. 

I want you to know that you are not alone. I have been in dark places on this journey we call life and as a graduate of The Advanced Intuitive Healer Training Program, I have learned tools to transform the dense, dark, contracted energy into expansive energy. I have learned that there is always a gift under the sadness. Your power is waiting to be released on the other side of your pain.

There are times in our lives where it seems as if life is out to get us. We feel like we can’t get our feet on the ground. But I assure you, life can be experienced as benevolent. We can invite ease and flow back into our lives. We just need support sometimes. 

I am here to help you uncover the beauty and love of your true essence so that when life presents you with turbulence, you have the confidence and tools to stand tall in the face of adversity long enough to uncover the gift it has for you.

Sometimes we heal a wound in one session and sometimes it takes more than one session to unravel. But it can be done. We can heal. Your true nature is expansive, harmonious and full of brilliant light. It gets covered over by wounds that get lodged in the energy field. I am here to help you release these contracted patterns in your field so you can experience your true essence.

In addition to Wendy DeRosa’s Intuitive Healer Training Program and her Advanced Intuitive Healer Training Program, I have studied and taken many courses with Eckart Tolle over the last ten years. I completed a year long Facilitator Training Program with International teacher and healer, Jeddah Mali; completed Distance Healing from the Core, with Suzanne Scurlock, Ho’oponopono Advanced Training with Joe Vitale, and completed a BS Degree in Speech communication and Interpersonal Development from Ithaca College, Ithaca NY.  

All of these teaching brought me back to the importance of embracing myself with love and acceptance. I am here to be a mirror for you… to reflect back to you your beauty, power, wisdom and grace. I would be honored to work with you.

   Emily Weaver

Hello!  Thank you for visiting my page.

In my work with clients, be it energy work, therapy, or coaching, I bring warmth, humor, deep listening, curiosity, and my intuition.  Being a human in this world is sometimes a tricky business.  To be human is to carry a stunning array of feelings and emotions, in our energetic bodies, that sometimes are delightful and sometimes are exquisitely painful.  Many of us did not grow up in a culture or family where we were encouraged to develop deep introspection and respect for how our emotions impact our lives.  We often develop sophisticated ways to stay out of connection with our feelings and our body’s wisdom.

My work is centered around helping you to develop a true curiosity about how your energetic body works with you or against you, so that you can heal and move more deeply into your true Self. Together, we work, at your pace, to foster a sense of safety that allows you to explore, process and heal deeply held beliefs, feelings, and emotions that impact your ability to fully embody your physical and spiritual bodies.  As you develop awareness of what you have absorbed and carried through your life, and even what you may have carried from past lives or from ancestors, I will support you by helping you to learn to release what does not serve you and to integrate the healing, so you are more consciously connected to yourself, your spirit, and your life.  Each healing session is different.  After hearing what you wish to explore and heal, we might do a general Chakra clearing, focus on a particular chakra or area of your body where you are holding energy that does not serve you, or co-create strategies that when practiced may lead to greater ease in your life.

I am a Certified Advanced Intuitive Energy Healer & Certified Facilitator through the School for Intuitive Studies.  As a psychotherapist I am informed by psychodynamic, cultural relational, systems theory, as well as by my intuition and understanding of how energy works in our systems.

I have training in Hakomi therapy, Reiki, Advanced Integrative Therapy, and trauma healing.  I have a long-standing meditation practice and have deeply studied the Chakra system.

Thank you for your interest in my work. Please contact me if you would like an energy or coaching session or if you have questions.  I can meet with you via Zoom or telephone.

   Ilene Leshinsky

I am so glad you are here! It means you want more joy and fulfillment in your life. Or, maybe you want to ease the pain of loss, or trauma, or those curveballs that life throws at us.

I’m Ilene Leshinsky and I want to help. Throughout my twenty-eight-year career as a psychotherapist, body image specialist, empath, and intuitive, I’ve worked primarily with women to support their emotional, physical, and spiritual well-being.

I love working with women. So often we don’t realize our own gifts and talents. Because we are taking care of so much else, our families, our jobs, our communities, our multiple roles, we get lost. We forget we are special and worthy! I can help you find your way back to yourself.

We work collaboratively, in partnership with each other. Why? Because I believe that each of us holds innate wisdom to heal. Our collaboration, using grounding, breathwork, psychodynamic techniques, cognitive-behavioral strategies, and intuitive energy healing, will enhance your own innate healing potential, and unblock your Qi, your life force.

I am a graduate of Wendy De Rosa’s Intuitive Healer Training Program, and currently assisting with the 2021-2022 IHTP class, along with participating in the Advanced Intuitive Healer Training Program.

I’m also an avid power walker, aerobic dancer, Qi Gong lover, singer, and writer. And I live in South Florida with my husband of thirty years.

   Nataliya Zalyesova

My focus in healing, personally, as well as a Healer, is on deepening connection with self and Divine within. It is my experience that disconnection at one of these levels causes pain.

Life invited me to live and learn within several languages and cultures. Adjusting to challenges while using sensitivity gifts was a bruising yet revelatory experience. Loss of sense of self is an explicit invitation to discover your purity, uniqueness, and a sense of purpose.

The pain you have experienced so far, and existential pull that brought you to this School, are immense gifts. I will be honoured to walk alongside you on this path of growth. Lovingly creating and holding a healing space is my calling.

My formal qualifications are eclectic, MBA in Finance and Light Therapy completed in 2017 (France). As a therapist, I use coloured light at acupuncture points to stimulate energy flow and promote physiological balance. Aromatherapy, Homeopathy, and cold-water swimming are my personal wellbeing modalities.

Completing Advanced Intuitive Healer program enabled me to use intuitive gifts with confidence. Healing sessions are always filled with Divine presence and guidance. I do my best to step aside and allow Love to flow so that you can re-member your wholeness. Courageously gazing into discomfort is usually enough for powerful shifts.

It will be my honour to hold a safe healing space for you to return to your original vibrant self.
