TEACHER & FOUNDER
Jill is the founder and director of the Energy Healing Institute, an online and classroom-based school that caters to the consciously curious as well as new and seasoned integrative practitioners, who share an interest in energy healing as part of a holistic approach to self-awareness and evolution.
Jill’s breadth of expertise with energy, clairvoyance, conscious channeling and the planes of consciousness deeply connect her to her students, who are seeking to broaden their perspective, evolve their awareness and integrate energy healing into their personal life and their client practices.
Her teaching style is grounded, organized, logical, hands-on and playful—and delivered with absolute integrity and the highest standards of teaching protocols. There's a noticeable absence of New Age 'woo-woo' here. It's simply not Jill's style!
As a teacher and practitioner, she enjoys dissolving limiting paradigms and shifting the beliefs and thought processes that block people from taking personal control of their healing and evolution. Jill empowers every student and client to be their own healer, and to see themselves as Who They Are — and to take ownership for what they are creating and manifesting.
Jill writes for her readership, and also has a regular column on SpiritualityHealth.com. She developed an online course for their readers on evolving relationships and shifting longstanding patterns with energy practices to enhance their offerings.
As a child, Jill’s energetic abilities showed up in the form of telepathic communication with certain wild animals. Her sense of connection to the natural world was in many ways deeper and more satisfying than her relationships with family and friends. She was able to enjoy this profound connection until the age of 11, when it finally shut down due to being labeled “a bad thing” by the adults around her.
Later in her adulthood, while working in the corporate world, Jill experienced a spontaneous reactivation of her abilities, encountering and communicating with spirits on her land. Ungrounded and unprepared for what she was experiencing, and in the throes of chronic fatigue and auto-immune issues, she made the decision to learn more about regulating her energy as a mechanism for healing her emotions and her body.
I was a young mother, in my early 30s, with a high-powered career. I didn’t want to continue experiencing chronic fatigue and auto-immune issues. These symptoms are very common with people who are energetically porous, and therefore not able to contain and regulate energy.
As she straddled the corporate and spiritual worlds, Jill kept the two very separate from one another to avoid the risk of appearing “crazy.” Despite the two-world approach she was taking, her abilities still crept in, and allowed her to intuit what coworkers and clients were experiencing, helping them to feel seen and understood. When she chose to end her corporate life, Jill moved full-time into spiritual work.
When Jill isn’t teaching or working with clients, she enjoys writing, traveling, gardening, beekeeping, working out, cooking and being a foodie. She lives in Portland, Oregon with her partner, and silly, beloved bulldog Penny.
"I do this work because I believe in the body’s innate ability to heal. I believe in the process that occurs when someone moves into inner alignment and energetic coherence."
