Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

I am a certified Reiki Therapist, Master Reiki Practitioner, and an Advanced Reiki Teacher. I am certified in Holy Fire Reiki levels I, II, and III and have found that reiki healing and meditation can help people from all walks of life and health conditions.

This is a Remote Reiki Meditation and Reiki Healing Session (I am not teaching you or attuning you to Reiki) but rather, helping you to learn a self-relaxation and meditation technique using the principles of Reiki. Reiki is a form of alternative medicine called energy healing.

Reiki practitioners use a technique called palm healing or hands-on healing through which a "universal energy" is said to be transferred through the palms of the practitioner to the patient in order to encourage emotional or physical healing. When our bodies and minds are relaxed, our parasympathetic nervous system works efficiently and brings about healing within the body.

I was looking for a certified distance reiki practitioner. I am so glad I found Dr. Simone. She is so knowledgeable. Her personality and kindness is infectious. She explained reiki to me in a very scientific manner. She's very thorough. I felt so relaxed and energized at the same time. I have taken reiki in person before but was skeptical about a remote session and Dr. Simone eased all my concerns. She's so kind, empathic, and very good at her job. Also, being a health practitioner, she brings a very scientific and clinical aspect to her sessions. I plan to work with her more. Can't wait to get more reiki sessions with her!

Before I met Dr. Simone, I had spent a lot of money on apps and many teachers who I thought could help me learn meditation. I wanted to learn meditation to help with my anxiety and cravings for sugar. No amount of apps or meditation teachers were able to help me develop a regular practice. Dr. Simone is one of the first and only teachers who was able to help me build a regular meditation practice. Firstly, Dr. Simone is someone who does not give you a one size fits all meditation plan. She spends a lot of time creating an individual and personalized plan after she gets to ones experiences, needs, and goals. She spends a great amount of time explaining the clinical and scientific facts on the many benefits of meditation. She then goes in helping one understand how their brain and body works in relationship to meditation. So, if you're someone who wants to learn meditation from a health professional who actually teaches you instead of giving you some cliche technique, Dr. Simone is your teacher. She's also one of the smartest health professionals I've worked with. She's very accommodating, when I had scheduling issues, she was very happy to help. She's very kind and easy to talk to. She also goes above and beyond to make herself available if you need her between lessons or appointments.

I absolutely loved working with her and would recommend her to anyone struggling with stress, anxiety, or something else.

I'm now meditating regularly and when I have questions, I reach out to Dr. Simone and she always helps me out.
Claire
Dr. Suman was flexible while working on her presentation and always met deadlines. She made the experience extremely collaborative while having the education to speak to any ideas I had. Very personable and fun to work with!

My experience with Kathy has been great. It's been roughly five months and I learned a lot and I'm also much more confident to sing. Learning the right techniques is crucial. Kathy is extremely patient and she adapts the classes to the student goals and aspirations. English is not my first language and she was also always very respectful and patient in explaining everything twice or maybe three times until I get it.
Kathleen
Kathryn has a terrific demeanor, and provides clear, thoughtful suggestions for technique!

Not only is he passionate about music and classical guitar, I find him to be a patient instructor who listens and understands his students needs. He has an in-depth knowledge of music theory, a willingness to use various approaches based on student needs, and a talent for playing the guitar at a level which continually inspires you keep learning."

"I don't quite know how to describe working with Fawn other than the fact that once you start lessons with her, you'll never want to leave. Fawn really furthers your understanding of music in general and how to play the piano. She is absolutely excellent at music and at her job. Beyond that, Fawn is a genuine, kind hearted person who will help you patiently and attentively through each and every one of your problems till you suddenly realize that everything makes sense to you! I recommend Fawn for anyone with even the slightest bit of interest in playing the piano because I assure you that Fawn will nurture that interest and turn it into a passion!"
