Who Is Paula?

I ​am a Reiki master​ teacher and public speaker based in Northwest Pennsylvania.

I​ ​consciously​ ​began on my path in the mid 1990s​ ​when m​​y youngest son and his friends were reading things I didn't know about or understand, which caused me some concern. Instead of​ ​telling him that he shouldn't be dabbling in such things, I decided to​ ​look into it myself. To my surprise, they opened my mind, opened my heart, and changed my life...

Reading those initial books​ ​(such as the Conversations With God series), I started seeing life, death, and health in a different way. I have​ ​since​ ​taken classes on massage, mediumship, healing with rocks and gems, using natural plants for healing and nutrition, automatic writing, therapeutic touch, and much more.

My main focus is Reiki. I became a Reiki Master Teacher in 2001, and joined the International Association of Reiki Professionals (IARP) in 2003. Reiki helps relieve stress,​ ​manage pain,​ ​induce relaxation,​ ​enhance​ ​the effects of​ ​medication,​ ​and has many other benefits.

Reiki is also very helpful to people at the end of their life's journey. Through my work with a local hospice,​ ​I'm called to administer Reiki to patients who are actively dying, to help them relax and be at peace... a very rewarding​ ​endeavor. Through this work -- as well as my experiences with friends and relatives who have crossed over -- I feel I've reached an understanding of how things can be improved​ ​with regard to helping people cross over, and assisting their loved ones to have a more sacred, comfortable, and fulfilling experience.

I love helping people in any way I can. With the Reiki, I can help by giving therapy, giving talks, or teaching people to become Reiki practitioners.
