Andrea is an intuitive Reiki master, holistic coach, artist, and speaker. A mother to an adult son with autism, her healing journey began when advocating for him when he was diagnosed at age six. This positive life changing diagnosis was the catalyst in nurturing her family through the practice of Reiki and mindfulness in body and spirit. Andrea believes that life is a journey directing us towards our purpose. Through her experience while raising her son, she offers a holistic approach to understanding the frustrations, uncertainty, joy and love of life.
Andrea’s Reiki sessions offer an enlightened healing supporting many who have expressed her style of Reiki healing as “kick ass” and feeling fearless, calm and focused. An accomplished artist, Andrea blends self-expression, energy work and mediation sure to inspire your creative spirit and get visions and goals flowing!
Andrea has been involved with grass roots and start-up organizations focusing on those community members and their families dealing with ASD, offering her broad spectrum of knowledge as a parent and advocate. Recognizing the serious need for the promotion of social skills for adults with autism, Andrea has always envisioned an organization with events supporting the under serviced and undervalued young adults with autism and is the co-founder of Pub & Play.
Andrea loves to give back to the community and currently sits on the advisory board to the Community Integration Through Cooperative Education (CICE) program at Mohawk College in Hamilton, Ontario.
