Sarah H Nicotra  MTP, MAOM, GC-C, RNC, Cert. Medical Reiki Master

As a direct-line descendant of William Brewster (the spiritual Elder of the Pilgrims on the Mayflower) it would be fair to say an obsession with spiritual health runs in my blood. Hence, the Master's degree in Transpersonal Psychology.

Don't know what that is? No worries, most folks don't! But I bet you know Carl Jung, the founder of the field. At it's core Transpersonal Psychology combines a holistic view of psychology, spirituality, mysticism, and the totality of a who you are.

Est. 2011 I've developed an expertise in helping folks heal in a nutrient-deficient culture and teaching how to nurture sensitivity and intuition. Former clients have called "a wizard", "a true renaissance woman who bridges many worlds into one" and "the best solution seeker on the planet".

My professional practice draws upon over 1000+ hours of clinical spiritual care experience, an ancestral and academic legacy, and supplemental trainings/apprenticeships including: psychic perception, spirit communication, deposession, psychopomping, medical Reiki, advanced medical intuition, naturopathy, and sacred beekeeping/path of the bee priestess.

In a time when the online spiritual market is flooded with guru’s and other troubling trends, I remain continually dedicated to providing sound integrative spiritual care (1 on 1) and creating nourishing workshops/courses.

Of special interest to me are the following topics:

  • the human body, intuition and what it really means to “upgrade your DNA”

  • spiritual components of chronic illness and our public health crisis

  • how highly sensitive empaths can create better health and more joy in a collapsed world

Lineage
My professional practice reflects a strong Asgardian/Norse influence sprinkled with both Celtic and Christian Mysticism, a true blend of my colonial and indigenous Northwestern European ancestral lineage.

On Cultural Appropriation 
I do not position myself as a teacher of the Norse or Celtic paths. And I do pledge to continually ensure my teaching reflects proper attribution of all teachers, healing techniques, rituals, perspectives, and the like.

I've dedicated a significant portion of my personal resources towards studying different perspectives like Quechuan spirituality, Native American perspectives, Taoism, and beyond. While I hold a deep reverence for these perspectives and acknowledge the role they have played in shaping my world view, I do not profit from teaching their ways.


CODE OF ETHICS

  • My professional practice shall never go beyond the scope of which I am specifically trained and certified

  • My professional practice does not diagnosis, treat, or cure and medical disease or conditions

  • My professional allied health and wellness practice is not licensed and therefore does not provide therapy services

  • All support services are provided in an educational/entertainment format

  • Your information is held in strict confidence with two caveats: should you inform me of intent to harm yourself or another I will be required to report to local authorities


Identity Statement
I'm a highly sensitive, white, cisgendered bisexual in a long-term committed monogamous heterosexual relationship. I’m also what you’d call a hyper-empath and lived with chronic illness for over 15 years therefore my able-bodiedness fluctuates. I go by the pronouns she/her.

Inclusivity Statement
I actively seek to not exclude or discriminate against any group of persons based on race, class, disability, sexuality, religion or lack of religion. All services and teachings are being reviewed and revamped to a greater standard of care.

Anti-Racism Statement
First and foremost, I pledge to have a positive impact on humanity and do less harm, specifically to BIPOC. I am committed to consistent action that condemns racism, educates folks on whiteness and white supremacy, and uplifts and amplifies the voices and works of BIWOC. I expect to be held accountable to this pledge and invite you to hold me accountable.

Personal Belief Statement
I most closely identify with pantheistic/animistic paganism. Essentially, as a pagan, my personal spiritual practice is nature/earth-centric and heavily influenced by visions, dream time teachers, and my pre-Christian Norse orientation. 

I was raised in a Presbyterian Church, baptized as a child and confirmed as a pre-teen. In my heart I never connected to the concept of Christianity but rather adopted a curious world view point where I studied many religions and spiritual paths believing there is no one "right" way to reach God/the divine. While I am not a Christian, per say, I do have a strong connection to Pegasus, the ancient symbol for Christ consciousness. Also, I have logged over 1000+ clinical hours as a Hospice Chaplain which requires a familiarity, understanding, and demonstration of competence across all faiths.

Soul has been demoted to a new-age spiritual fantasy or a missionary’s booty, and nature has been treated , at best, as a postcard or a vacation backdrop or, more commonly, as a hardware store or refuse heap. Too many of us lack intimacy with the natural world and with our souls, and consequently we are doing untold damage to both.
