Colleen was born in Northern Ohio and went to Hocking College, in Nelsonville OH to study Interpretive Services and Wildlife Management in 1991.  Her love and spiritual connection to animals and nature served as an easy bridge to Shamanism.  Her Shamanic  training started in 1995 with Bekki Shining Bearheart  and Crow Swimsaway, founding ministers of the Church of Earth Healing, taking the Fundamentals of Shamanism and other beginners  workshops at Dragon Waters as well as taking part in the Athens Drum Circle.

In 2015, Colleen had a very serious health crises and subsequent near-death experience, which also brought with it a shamanic reawakening. Coincidentally, Bekki Shining Bearheart had moved to Ithaca, and Colleen was able to further pursue her shamanic  training. Colleen joined the Ithaca Shamanic Drum Circle and attended advanced training workshops.  In February 2016 she started her year-long Shamanic Apprenticeship!

Colleen is skilled in many techniques of Shamanic Healing, and has especially strong skills in work involving  Extractions, Energy Healing, Ancestor Work, Pyscho-Pomp and Soul Retrieval.  A healing session may include other techniques, and a consultation with a client will indicate what work may be needed.  Colleen continues to work closely with Bekki Shining Bearheart as well as seeing her own clients in Ithaca and looks forward to continuing her work with The Church of Earth Healing .
   
She is excited to expand her shamanic practice and share her healing ability with those in need. She can be contacted at: cms326@gmail.com or 607-272-8968.
