During our session I may integrate crystals, drums, rattles, singing bowls, shamanic tools, and my own voice, as intuitively called. I draw upon many personal experiences and traditions to serve the unique needs of my clients. A passion of mine is helping others navigate rocky times using elements of my own story coupled with many healing modalities I have gathered during this earth walk. 


I currently see clients at the West Shore Reiki Alliance at Dr. Kcomt's Center for Wellbeing, and I look forward to serving you. For a more detailed bio and information about the Center, visit

Feeding the Roots of

Self-Expression and Freedom

For this book, Jimmy Santiago Baca, one of the foremost poets in America today, collaborates with two National Writing Project Fellows and literacy professionals, Kym Sheehan and Denise VanBriggle. Together they present a teaching tool that uses poems from Baca’s incarceration as a young man, along with curricular activities and probing questions crafted to help students heal through writing. Each exercise reinforces the theme that a strong grasp of self-esteem borne from unique expression lends itself to the student enjoying day-to-day life at the highest creative and fulfilling level.


THE AUTHORS are available to visit your school or university. Keynote by Jimmy Santiago Baca and teacher trainings by myself and/or Kym Sheehan. 


Available on Amazon

Erato, Love, Loss, and Longing Reflected in Image and Verse, officially launched on August 1, 2020 and is now available on Amazon. The collection pairs Denise's poetry with the black and white photography of Erika Dupes.
