As long as you are unable to access the power of the Now, every emotional pain that you experience leaves behind a residue of pain that lives on in you.
— Eckhart Tolle


The connection between our mind and body is undeniable. Our physical health is very much affected by how we think and feel. When we bury our emotional pain as a coping mechanism, our body ends up taking a toll. Our repressed emotions (anger, shame, guilt, remorse, unworthiness, etc.) can start to manifest as physical symptoms in the body if left unprocessed, and these physical symptoms can manifest into diseases eventually to get our attention if we continue to ignore them. I believe in addressing the emotional root cause of an issue instead of masking the physical symptoms temporarily.

I am passionate about my work as a holistic healing intuitive.
Essence Healing™ is a holistic healing approach I developed which consists of three components: Energy Therapy, Guided Meditation, and Visualization during a hypnotic state. This healing approach focuses on energetically processing the physiological imprints of repressed emotions stored in our body and it aims at reprograming our subconscious mind with positive thought patterns with Guided Meditation, and Visualization during a hypnotic state.

The reason I developed this holistic healing approach is that I have learned that the energetic shift I can create in individuals through energy therapy will not be long-lasting unless I can also help them process their emotional pain and overcome negative thought patterns by working with their subconscious mind.

I believe joy is our natural state and light is the essence of our being. When we align all aspects of who we are as multidimensional beings, we radiate our authenticity effortlessly to create meaningful impact and attract what we desire in the world.

Some of my training includes the study of various energy healing techniques (including Gigong, Shamanic Healing, Reiki, Ancestral Lineage Clearing, Inner Child Healing and Vocal Toning), Ericksonian Hypnosis Master Practitioner program, Vipassana Meditation, Neuro-linguistic Programing (NLP) Master Practitioner program and The School of The Art Institute of Chicago for Bachelor of Fine Arts program.

I experienced a kundalini awakening in 2013 that led me on a journey of healing. Before my shift, I worked as a photo art director and had worked in the advertising industry for 15 years creating marketing campaigns for fortune 500 fashion and cosmetic companies.

I love nature, meditation, metaphysics, indigenous spirituality, whole food plant based diet, astro travel, yoga, drumming, dancing, jazz, exploring my consciousness and the unknown.

“There are so many beautiful things that could be said about my experience with Jo’s energy healing, so I choose to highlight only a few; some of them deal with what I experienced during the sessions with her; others, with the feelings I had after each session; and others, with Jo as a person, and an energy healer.

1. The space that Jo was able to create for each session felt safe and welcoming.

2. During each session, Jo was able to create a safe and harmonious sanctuary in my mind, where I learned to “go” whenever I feel stressed, anxious, and out of balance.

3. By working with Jo I learned simple but valuable tools for diminishing my level of anxiety at the workplace and in social settings, which I can use whenever I want, wherever I am.

4. After each session I had with Jo, I achieved a deep sense of calm and peace, and whichever anxiety I had before, disappeared.

5. One of the most remarkable things that occurred after working with Jo has been experiencing an improvement of my overall mood, and not in an episodic manner: the disposition I acquired thanks to Jo has become the default mode of my psychological and spiritual state.

6. I think that the healing energy sessions were so successful because of what Jo is able to create, transmit to and evoke in her client. Jo is a remarkable person; she is inventive, insightful, empathic and compassionate. Her guidance during session is easy to follow, and offered in an unobtrusive and calm way. Each combination of methods she adopted with me was performed seamlessly and with great expertise.

For those seeking to develop a rich and nourishing sense of peace, and to learn strategies for keeping this sense of peace amid the stress and anxiety of daily life, Jo’s energy healing sessions are ideal. I recommend them completely and unreservedly.“ - Monica C.


“I had two sessions with Jo and I appreciate her dedication to helping me getting clarity about my life’s work and regaining perspective. I feel so lucky to have had an incredible experience with her. In providing a space of respectfulness, love and openness for me during trance I remembered a dream. It was a dream I suddenly knew it was in my heart since I was born but was always afraid of living it because it is so extraordinary and big for me.

With Jo’s presence and guidance I began to trust my inner voice and allowed the mental imagery to evolve. After this experience my daily life got a completely new focus and even my eating habits changed. For me there is no doubt: Jo is a generous and capable energy transformer. What a blessing for humanity!

I am really grateful to have found such a great soul.“ - Karin K.
