She has been practicing many different types of spiritual work, holistic wellness methods and paranormal work since the early 90s and has studied under some of the best healers in Canada.

She is honoured to continue to receive teachings and guidance from Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers, Advocates and Leaders. Barbara participates in many indigenous practices, including working with medicines, drumming, dream work, advocacy, and more. This has helped her to reconnect with her own indigenous heritage and reclaim some of her family's lost culture.

She has training and experience with holistic healing techniques such as Reiki, Therapeutic Touch, Crystal Healing, Touch for Health, and Tibetan Energy Massage. She was honoured as the “Healer of the Month” April 2009, with the Ontario Holistic Registry, and featured in the LightWorkers Magazine in 2014.

Barbara is a very accomplished and internationally recognized Spiritual Advisor, and Tarot Reader.
