Welcome to Heart Grounding!
My name’s Jen (she/her), and Heart Grounding is my life’s work. I chose the name Heart Grounding because so much of my path has been about learning how to live in the heart, receive its wisdom, and then BE its wisdom from a grounded, trusting place.
Through walking my own path and doing my own work, I’m able to serve others. I provide a committed, loving approach to long-term change. I encourage spiritual expansion through connecting to internal truth and Mother Nature.
I group my offerings into the following: Energy + Sound Healing, Spirit-Guided Coaching, Shamanic Journeying + Ceremony, Voice Empowerment, and Kundalini Yoga + Meditation. You can learn about these offerings and what they entail on the Working Together page. If you’d like to schedule a session together, please go here.
I live in the river town of Hudson, New York and regularly travel to offer my work in other places. If you’d like to talk about collaborating for an event in New York or elsewhere, please Email me directly.

In addition to these experiences, I have many years of studying voice and music, competing in international choral and theatrical programs, and I worked with musicians one-on-one for over a decade. I apply this background to my Mantra + Voice + Sound work, along with what I've learned about mantra, the throat chakra, and song through my Kundalini training, Sound training, and Shamanic practice.
