Skin – Facials & Waxing
I believe in a holistic, natural and organic approach to healthy skin and well-being. Your skin is the largest organ in your body and can change daily. It symbolizes our sensitivity and self-worth and metaphysically it is referred to as “the body of the soul”. It also symbolizes birth and rebirth as its cells are constantly regenerating. Eastern healers often refer to the skin as the “third lung”. A tiny piece of the skin the size of a quarter contains 3 feet of blood vessels, 25 nerve cells, 12 feet of nerves, 100 sweat glands, and more than 3,000,000 cells; it is a complex team working 24/7.
At every appointment, your facial is customized based on what your skin needs that day. When treating the skin, it is important to look at the body as a whole instead of just the outer layer. A lot of factors including diet, stress, illness, medications and sleep all play a part for skin health. The products I use are non toxic, paraben free, sulfate free, with organic and/or sustainable ingredients that are botanical and plant based.
It’s more than just a facial, it’s an experience combined with intuition and healing energy. I am dedicated to creating a relaxing space that celebrates self care, holistic health, and spiritual well-being. My passion for skincare is deeper than skincare itself. It appears in our consultations, follow ups, and having a sacred space to rest, relax and recharge. I make the effort to ease insecurities, reassure you of your worth and guide you in the process of loving yourself and living your best life authentically.

Licensed Aesthetician – Reiki Master Energy Healer – Certified Spiritual Life Coach
My passion for skincare began as a teenager when I had severe acne. I learned first hand how facing the world can be difficult when your self esteem is affected about how you feel about yourself. I began my career in the beauty industry as a makeup artist over 25 years ago and loved to help teens and women feel beautiful. But, I wanted to know how to care for the skin properly instead of covering up imperfections and flaws.
I attended The Skin Care Center in Northern Virginia and post graduate training at the International Dermal Institute. I began working in spas and loved every second of it. However I soon realized I wanted to learn how to help people with their skin with more of a medical approach.
Soon after, I began working as a medical esthetician for a dermatologist, Dr. Terri Morris who had a medical and cosmetic practice. She is one of my greatest mentors and taught me how to identify and treat skin types and conditions with many different techniques, products and lasers. This was by far the greatest training of my career and I learned so much from her.
14 years later, I was a licensed Esthetician in 4 states, owned my own skincare studio, worked at several spas and doctor’s offices. But again, I found myself wanting more ways to help people. When a dear friend who was going through cancer treatments needed help with her skin I got extensively trained in Oncology skincare. I also learned more alternative modalities like Gua Sha, Reiki, lymphatic drainage, and aromatherapy.
I have always had a strong holistic belief using herbs, aromatherapy and eating healthy. Knowing the body is connected, you can’t treat one part without it impacting another. With all of my experiences and people I have met in the skincare field, I’ve developed a method that gives results in a natural, holistic way. With my husband’s help, support and website talent, we created Alternative Skincare and Wellness; a holistic approach to healthy skin and well-being. A lot of factors to one’s well-being including diet, stress, illness, medications and sleep all play apart for skin health.
When you come in for a facial, I will look at your body as a whole to treat your skin holistically. You will experience a relaxing environment that you can escape from everyday life and leave with glowing skin. You will feel lighter, relaxed, and rejuvenated within your mind, body, and soul.
