Energy Healing and Clarity Work

Certified and Attuned as a Reiki Master Teacher and Facilitator in the Usui Method, Alexandra has been practicing in Los Angeles, New York, as well as offering Remote Healings since 2017. Alexandra offers attunements in all levels of Reiki in groups or custom for individuals. Please find her schedule below.

Reiki is an ancient energy healing technique that was brought to the west by way of a Japanese lineage, though it originated in India and Tibet. Reiki is a hands-on or hands-hovering technique that leverages the life-force energy Ki, to rebalance the energy in the bodies. This rebalancing, and movement of energy  is known to alleviate stress, and anxiety, and create a sense of balance and ease in the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual bodies.

clarity work

Alexandra was certified by Helen Vonderheide to read the Akashic Records for herself and others.

So much of what keeps us from seeing clearly is that we often aren’t wiling to see—we are in a fear state and rigid. We often know the answers and are unwilling to listen to ourselves— we lunge in with questions that paralyze us and keep us small. Alexandra works with individuals to access and trust their inner knowing by tapping into a vast and infinite consciousness that knows and sees all things from the perspective of the most infinite self—the soul. This consciousness is known as the Akasha. In working in the Akashic records, Alexandra helps each person align with the whispers of their soul to answer their hearts questions from an elevated altitude. From this perspective, each person is capable of rising above fear state and doubt and can invite in clarity and to inform right action.

The Akashic Records can be addressed for big and small questions, and for a range of practical and spiritual matters, to surface answers at an altitude that is nourishing, and in the interest of your highest good and the highest good of everyone connected to you.



For Individuals

Distance Reiki Energy Healing Session

Reiki works on the energetic level, so physical presence is not required for the session to be felt, or offer benefit. These sessions are offered remotely. I will touch in first on a brief call, and then follow with offering distance healing. 

Double Distance Reiki Energy Healing Session (Alexandra and Marta)

Receive a double dose of balancing, healing, loving energy, as I team-up with Marta Ulbricht, an incredible energy and sound healer, to offer you a unique remote reiki experience.

Virtual Akashic Records Clarity Session

This session is designed to offer clarity, ease and support as you navigate decisions, change, and evolution in your life. I will teach you how to open your own records, and together we will open our Akashic records to inquire about your specific situations, or questions that you’re seeking an elevated perspective, and insight on. I will help you frame the questions so that as we open the records, we receive clear, and succinct answers that serve your highest good.

For Organizations

Introduction to Reiki and Guided Meditation

This session is an introduction to Reiki, and covers the benefits of working with the Reiki energy healing technique. I guide the group through the steps to offer self-reiki as a meditation so each participant leaves with an understanding of, and first hand experience with Reiki. The meditation will be tailored to meet the group’s experience, needs, and openness. No prior experience is required.

Individual Reiki Sessions

In addition to, or separate from a group Reiki circle, I offer up to 12, 10 minute individual Reiki healing sessions for employees. These mini Reiki-sessions offer individuals a chance to rebalance their energy, and reduce stress during the workday.

Attunements and Certifications

I offer Levels I-IV Reiki Attunements and Certifications in person, in Los Angeles and New York. I offer both private and small group sessions. To book, please select from the available courses being offered. Reach out if you cannot find what you are looking for.

Please contact me with any questions.

My Reiki I attunement via Ali was incredibly special. The process was beautifully ritualized, and thorough, and I appreciated her attentive care in both teaching and practice. I now feel well equipped to practice Reiki by experiencing her healing power, knowledge and thoughtfulness.

Ali will make you a believer. A believer in yourself, your energy within, and the energy all around you. With little experience in the holistic world, I decided to try Reiki with the expectation of nothing more than a soothing experience. I left the session with so much more — mystified by the sensations and thoughts that emerged during our short time together. I recommend Ali’s services to anyone and everyone. There is nothing to lose and so much to gain.

My Akashic Records Clarity session with Ali was so powerful and profound. I had been dealing with mental and emotional issues from childhood that manifested as constant physical pain and tightness in the body. For a month, I could not take a full breath and felt heavy, tense weights on my neck and shoulders. After trying so many healing methods, I finally surrendered and asked, “please guide me to someone or something that can help.” The following morning I reached out to Ali for an intuitive read. Her reply made me feel better instantly. Her words pointed me in the right direction and were like keys that unlocked doors to solutions. Later that evening we had an Akashic Record session and specifically focused on the heart and throat chakras. The messages were detailed in language, rich in imagery, and profound in meaning. So much of what Ali channeled helped me piece together messages, signs, and signals I had received prior to our session (days, months, even years before). Already my neck is looser and breath full again. I look forward to returning to our session notes to continue working, receiving meaning, and healing. This work is so deep and potent, and Ali is such a clear, pure, powerful healer, guide and channel!
