Hey! I’m Sarah H Nicotra, a former Hospice Chaplain, seasoned spiritual healer, intuitive, and professional coach.
My expertise lies in helping folks heal in a nutrient-deficient culture and teaching how to nurture sensitivity and intuition.
I've been called "a wizard", "a true renaissance woman who bridges many worlds into one" and "the best solution seeker on the planet". I can help you master energy, sensitivity, and create a life you want to inhabit.
My professional practice draws upon over 1000+ hours of clinical spiritual care experience, a master’s degree in Transpersonal Psychology, and a lifetime of dedicated study.
In a time when the online spiritual market is flooded with guru’s and other troubling trends, I remain continually dedicated to integrated spirituality and provide sound integrative spiritual care 1 on 1 and in workshops/courses.

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.
(Maternal) I'm a 13th generation immigrant and direct descendent of Elder William Brewster, the English spiritual advisor/ruling patriarch pilgrim who voyaged to America on the Mayflower in 1620.
(Paternal) I'm a 12th generation immigrant and direct descendent of Olaf + Eliza Thorrson who voyaged on the Kalmar Nyckel from Sweden, landing in what is now Delaware in 1641.
I do not position myself as a teacher of the Norse or Celtic paths but promise to continually ensure my teaching reflects proper attribution of all teachers, healing techniques, rituals, perspectives, and the like.
On Cultural Appropriation
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
I'm a highly sensitive, white, cisgendered pansexual in a long-term committed monogamous heterosexual relationship who's lived with chronic illness for over 15 years therefore my able-bodiedness fluctuates. I go by the pronouns she/her.
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.
First and foremost, I pledge to have a positive impact on humanity and do less harm to BIPOC. I am committed to consistent public 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. (please visit this link for resources I hope you'll dive into)
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, dreamtime 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 hold a deep reverence for Christ, Christ consciousness, and have a particular fascination with Jesus and his relationship with Lazarus.
I have logged over 1000+ clinical hours as a Hospice Chaplain which requires a familiarity, understanding, and demonstration of competence across all faiths.
