ABOUT KATIE

Growing up, I was a very sensitive and empathic person. My dream jobs as a kid always involved helping people or animals: vet, zookeeper, firefighter, therapist, even a lofty dream of being a brain surgeon. 

Ultimately, I discovered my talent for Fine Art in High School and decided to go to art school. I graduated from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2014 with honors and a BFA in painting. ( I still paint and draw, and mostly create commissioned portraits of pets and loved ones who have passed on from this realm.Click here for my website.)

After leaving an abusive relationship in 2015, I found myself deeply searching for my soul’s purpose. I began meditating frequently & (unbeknownst to me,) started to channel divine messages from my spirit team. These messages were encouraging me to follow what felt right – making people happy and bringing light into their lives.

In the midst of working through my trauma, severe anxiety, and low self-worth in 2017, I saw a medium who encouraged me to access my intuitive abilities and work with them throughout my healing process. I was so inspired by this that I began practicing more often and tuning in to my intuitive abilities and honing my psychic skills. During my journey, I began to seek out Reiki as an alternative healing method to help me release trauma in my body and to calm my anxiety. During one session, I received a message that I needed to be practicing Reiki on myself – it wasn’t long after that I signed up for my first Reiki Training in early 2019.

By Summer 2019, I earned my Kundalini Reiki Master Certificate and began my practice – fulfilling my dream of being a healer to bring peace, love, and wellness to the lives of each of my clients! And completed a Multidimensional Healing training in Summer 2020.

Since my 2019 training, I have seen over 100 clients and trained over 30 students with no end in sight.

About Katie Emmitt

WHAT IS INTEGRATED WELLNESS?

mind.


body.


spirit.


I feel strongly about the connection between mind, body, and spirit. I fully believe that without bringing all three together holistically on our path to wellness, complete lasting healing just wouldn’t be possible. In a “heady” world that seems to see a disconnect between the mind and physical body – this is a radical way to approach health.

When we feel physically well & full of vitality, often we feel more capable of tackling our mental & spiritual ailments.

In this same way, we are better able to combat physical ailments & illness when we have less stress, are more relaxed, happy, and mentally well.

The mind and spirit are extremely powerful tools when it comes to healing the body, just as the body can give us powerful wisdom and insight into our suppressed emotions and traumas.

I Stand with the Black Lives Matter Movement.

Hatred of any kind has no home here in my business. All individuals need and deserve healing no matter their background, race, or how they identify. I strive to provide a safe space for all individuals.

I welcome everyone in my practice. If you need healing, I am happy to facilitate a safe space for you. This goes for all BIPOC, LGBTQIA, disabled, or other marginalized folx. I see you, hear you, love you, and want to help you on your journey to the best of my ability.

I am continually learning and shifting how I operate in order to be more actively anti-racist. At this point in time, the following measures are implemented and as I learn more and am able to financially provide more, I will.

  • 5% of ALL of my sales/income is donated to Black Women Owned Organizations. For the months of June & July, my donations are going to Sanctuary in the City – a North & South Carolina based organization that provides healing spaces, grants, classes, and sessions for BIPOC. Their website also includes an index of Black Healers that I highly recommend checking out. Visit them here.
  • Full and partial scholarships are available to BIPOC for Kundalini Reiki Trainings & other courses. If you are interested in receiving a scholarship or in funding one, please reach out to me at katiemmitt@gmail.com
  • All of my services are offered on a sliding scale, which allows marginalized & low-income folx to pay a lower rate. If you are able to pay higher on the scale, or above the scale, you will assist in providing healing services for low income & marginalized folx. If you would like to sponsor healing sessions for BIPOC, please e-mail me at katiemmitt@gmail.com
  • White folx looking to “do the work” – these are two resources I highly suggest. Both of these women do fantastic work and it can be a great place to start if you are unsure of where to begin.
    • Rachel Rickets – Visit her website here. She has two seminars which I highly recommend.
    • Laayla F. Saad – her book, Me & White Supremacy acts as a daily work book. You can easily purchase online, download to your device with the Kindle App, and read through each day and actively work at it. Here is a link to her book.
