Marla's journey has been one of transformation and resilience, akin to the mythical Phoenix rising from the ashes. Through her own experiences of survival mode living, she has emerged renewed, standing firmly in her inner strength and divine power. Her passion lies in empowering individuals who find themselves in similar circumstances, guiding them to reclaim their own divine power and thrive. She firmly believes in nurturing a safe and loving commUNITY where every person is seen and supported as they too rise from their own challenges.
Marla draws upon ancient healing techniques to aid each individual on their journey to self-empowerment. With over 15 years as a registered nurse, combined with 8 years of expertise in alternative healing modalities, she is an intuitive care provider. Marla's diverse skill set includes certifications as a Shamanic Reiki Master Practitioner, an Akashic Records Practitioner, a Kundalini Yoga Practitioner, and an Energetic Allergy Healing Practitioner. She also serves as a facilitator for utilizing frequency-specific microcurrents to support the body. Marla's creativity extends to crafting powerful, exquisite, and authentic Tantric Malas that offer an additional layer of aura protection. She also formulates Reiki and crystal-infused essential oil blends, thoughtfully designed to support the body with therapeutic-grade essential oils.
From an early age, Marla felt a calling to heal and serve others. Raised in a strict and judgmental religious environment where she often felt out of place, she struggled with eating disorders. Through inpatient and outpatient therapy, she discovered and reclaimed her inner strength, ultimately leaving the religion to embark on a new life.
Marla's first marriage, to a recovering addict, initially seemed promising. Yet, despite both partners doing the work, her husband's relapse led to a turbulent marriage that ended in separation. Tragically, her husband passed away due to undiagnosed cardiac issues during their separation.
Starting anew, Marla entered a marriage marked by emotional and verbal abuse. It was during this challenging period that her spiritual journey truly began when she became a mother and was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis—an autoimmune condition attacking the thyroid. Refusing to accept this diagnosis, she tapped into her natural healing abilities and intuition. After exploring various avenues, she found a naturopathic doctor who emphasized the importance of emotional and spiritual healing as the foundation for physical well-being. Embracing this holistic approach, she began a profound journey of healing.
Over the past few years, Marla has faced additional major life challenges, including bankruptcy, leaving a fulfilling job due to conflicting beliefs, and relocating nearly 1000 miles with her daughter and pets to start a new chapter. In each of these transformative moments, she made a deliberate choice—to stand in her power, express gratitude, and embrace personal growth as the catalyst for her evolution.
