"Thank you for support today. Since this afternoon I have run across several situations that would have set in motion a downward spiral of self-doubt followed by anger. So far all I have been feeling is love, calm, and excitement for what's to come. Thank you just doesn't say fully how gratefully I am for all that you have given me. "

"There are people who are involved in energy work in our midst....and then there are those who are truly lightworkers, here to live the journey and quietly share with us the profound wisdom of lessons learned and integrated during the fulfillment of their own contracts over multiple lifetimes. Lyria is the second group and lives her practices daily.
Her understanding and acknowledgment of the guidance and assistance available to us are most obvious and invaluable. She silently and lovingly expresses an ability to hold space during a session and I feel empowered to progress in a way that dovetails keenly with my level of understanding, even while "pushing the envelope" of healing and knowing.
A healer myself, it has often been challenging to find and trust any space for movement when my own path becomes muddied and less than clear. Time and again I have found solace, clarity and often profound expansion during and after a session with Lyria.
I am in deep gratitude to Spirit for having placed her in my path!"
"I have received 3-4 weekly sessions in energy work from Lyria for about one year now. I started the treatments after two miscarriages that resulted in significant emotional and spiritual challenges for me. Lyria has been extremely helpful in supporting through those experiences as well as my current healthy pregnancy.
I have gotten to know Lyria as a health care practitioner that has a very healing ability to listen, to tune into what’s most important and needed, to share her wisdom when appropriate, and she has the ability to create a very safe space for each healing session. Her actual energy work has been very palpable and often transforming for me. And I have no doubt that she has greatly helped me on my way to motherhood. I highly recommend her to my friends and family.
