Donna has been in the field of health and healing for over a decade and is passionate about supporting the healing process, body, mind, and spirit.  In her Reiki practice, she has a particular interest in working with people who have chronic health issues and are looking for a new way to bring healing and balance back to their lives.  Donna’s strength is to encourage her clients to create new habits of the mind, choose a powerful perspective around challenges, and connect back to spirit. Her expertise in both Life Coaching and Reiki allows her to navigate her client’s psyche and energy in a unique and productive way.

As a Reiki Master Teacher, Donna is committed to teaching her students a combination of the Authentic Art of Japanese Reiki and Western Reiki.  Her philosophy centers on the idea that in order to be a clear channel for Reiki, we must first focus on our own healing by participating in daily Reiki practices and techniques.  Establishing these new habits is so essential that Donna provides personal coaching in between her classes to fully support her student’s growth and challenges. Her thorough and detailed approach assures that her students leave with a spiritual practice, a model for self-healing, and a blueprint for life.


Donna is a Reiki Master Teacher and Certified Life Coach.  She received her Level 1 & 2 Reiki Certifications from Ellani Maurides and her Master’s Certification from Linda Rosenthal.  Donna furthered her training in traditional Japanese Reiki and studied under Frans Steine, founder of the International House of Reiki, and received her Shinpiden Certificate.  Her Coaching Certificate is from The Coaches Training Institute and Guiding Mindful Change Organization.  She has a B.A in Psychology.  Donna is a lifelong learner and continues to study the Japanese Art of Reiki and explore other holistic healing methods.
