My name is Samantha and I’m a Holistic Practitioner—specializing in The Emotion Code, The Body Code, Reiki Healing and I'm a Mindset Coach. I discovered the field of alternative medicine while I was working in the police force and struggling with depression and PTSD. I started Level Up Healing to provide a healing program that is safe, natural and accessible to everyone. Similar to traditional therapy, Level Up Healing empowers individuals to take ownership of their life and overall health. I help people overcome physical, mental and spiritual ailments by releasing energy blocks in the body and reprogramming the subconscious mind to replace limiting beliefs that do not serve their highest potential.
I have always been fascinated by human behavior and how the brain works—specifically how we respond and overcome trauma. My formal training in criminology, anthropology and forensic psychology prepared me to accurately prevent and respond to countless emergency situations, but I felt that we’re treating the symptoms and not the core problems of a broken society. This hit home in my personal life where I was struggling everyday with my PTSD and depression. I was treating my systems and not the root cause. Unresolved trauma and depression led me to a dark place where I debated on taking my own life. This wake up call led me to discovering alternative medicine and took me on a journey of self discovery and taking control of my life.
Law Enforcement and my personal experiences opened my eyes to mental health struggles, both in the community and behind the badge, and the ineffective solution the healthcare system prescribed. I interacted with many people who were candid about their struggle with mental illness. I heard, and at times witnessed, the heavily medicated, the self-medicated who stifled negative emotions with drugs and alcohol, people engaging in self-harm and other dangerous behaviors and the cry of suicidal ideations. This was a reflection of my personal struggles. I knew, along with the people I interacted with, this couldn’t be it. I couldn’t believe I had to live this way for the rest of my life.
After my wake up call I embraced the energy healing work and began reprogramming my subconscious mind. It was difficult at first but overtime it became easier. My body was slowly letting go of survival mode. I began sleeping better with the nightmares decreasing, I was able to manage stress better, and my emotional baseline was happiness. What was most important is that I no longer felt fear. I was finally at peace. I finally did what no medication or doctor was able to do, I overcame my PTSD and took my power back. After 5 years serving our community, I stepped away from policing and into a different form of community advocacy.
It is my passion to help people release the past that is suppressed in their body which is causing physical, emotional, and mental pain through energy healing and teach people how to identify and let go of limiting beliefs by reprogramming their subconscious mind through mindset coaching. Everything begins with YOU! You have the ability to change your life regardless of the circumstances!
When you change, everything in your life changes.
