Ever since I was young, I knew I wanted to get into a career path that worked with people. This interest grew into my undying passion for having real, honest and open communication including vulnerability and difference. As a licensed Marriage Family Therapist in the Bend/Willamette Valley, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and go above and beyond to acknowledge and companion them in meeting their needs. their needs.

Elizabeth is a healing practitioner and coach, specializing in somatic intuition and nervous system synchronization. She practices Organic Intelligence (O.I.), a form of therapeutic support which regulates the nervous system and helps ease body-minds into their natural state and rhythms. The goal is to heal trauma, which O.I. defines as "unintegrated resource." Elizabeth works with clients to support this integration, by focusing not on trauma per se, but on the underlying biological rhythms that are seeking simple adjustments to return to a state of balance and wholeness.
One way to think of the nervous system is as a "switchboard" for the whole being. It is what relays messages between all of the parts of ourselves and keeps us stable as well as flexible enough to grow, and it is also what communicates between ourselves, others, and the world around us. So in this work, we are gently re-configuring the main switchboard which effects the entirety of the system.
Elizabeth enjoys working with both adults and kids! With both she has the same goal of achieving coherence of body-mind-heart-& soul within an individual and the systems (family, relationships, work, etc.) that they influence and which influence them.
Organic Intelligence understands that coherence within small systems (one individual, for example), leads to coherence within bigger systems (families, communities), & eventually to culture and the planet at large. Therefore, it is not simply about symptom reduction (though feeling better is a part of the plan!), but also about positive evolutionary change at a big-picture level.
Elizabeth comes into this work with a passion for the well-being of Life on this Planet. It sure helps to have a map that can point us in the direction of liberating our vitality in a way that is congruent with our unique system's rhythms and authentic expression. This work is great for anyone seeking support to heal around a particular topic, or in general anyone who wants to feel better and more on point in their life and in their skin.

Tammy loves to help people boost their happiness quotient by decreasing stress, anxiety, and overwhelm through Life Coaching, Energy Healing, and EFT/Tapping. She helps people shift limiting thoughts and patterns to create healthy lifestyles and achieve goals through energy healing work, which incorporates CranioSacral Therapy, Acupressure, and Chakra balancing. She also serves as a channel for her client’s energy, and focuses where the client’s body tells her to go.
One area of particular focus in Tammy’s coaching is with Highly Sensitive People, or HSPs. 15-20% of the population are Highly Sensitive. HSPs process things more deeply and notice and are affected by things much more easily, which can be a challenge in our current fast-paced world. As an HSP herself, Tammy is well suited to help others better understand and cope with the sensitivities and traits and learn how to shift those into strengths.
Through the years, Tammy has become increasingly interested in meditation and mindfulness and their impact on creating change, and she incorporates these principles in her everyday life as well as in her work with clients. Tammy loves learning from her clients…seeing things from their perspective, but the biggest take away from her work are those ‘Aha!” moments when clients realize what’s been holding them back and what’s possible.

Asked to describe herself, she would say “I am just Shannon” and those who know her tend to agree, she is one of a kind. Shannon has a huge heart for all and believes in the Collaborative Problem Solving philosophy that “we all do well when we can” and if we can’t it’s because we have some unmet needs, things that we’re still learning and need some support. Shannon knows we are full of diverse abilities and that we thrive when we have the opportunity to “soar with our strengths and manage our challenges” with compassionate supports. Although she believes what has truly made her who she is today are the amazing opportunities she has had to raise two spunky youth and the gift of knowing and walking beside so many incredible youth and their families in her professional life.

I am a daughter, sister, friend, wife and mother. I love the outdoors, dancing hula, reading, growing, learning, sitting in coffee shops and meeting new people, and sharing positive and healing energy with others. I am Oregon born and raised. I began my personal discovery of Reiki several years ago when I was gifted with a Reiki treatment and formalized my training, receiving my first attunement, in the summer of 2015. I have since received my Master/Teacher attunement. My intention was simply to learn all I could learn for self practice; however, I felt called to start a Reiki practice towards the end of 2016 and doors began to open towards that calling. I started volunteering at St. Charles and began my practice, Aloha Spirit Reiki, and have never regretted that decision. I am honored by each person I practice with...I say with, because energy healing, in my belief, comes from within the receiver and from a higher power, not from me. I am a hollow bone through which the energy flows. I also love the Hawaiian forgiveness practice, Ho’oponopono, as well as other practices to help identify and clear limiting beliefs. In the fall of 2018, I added crystals to my list of loves and opened a small crystal shop and am thrilled to have the opportunity to move my shop to The Hive and collaborate with Jasmine of Heart Wrench Studio.
