Dear Visitors,

Finding the right energy worker and healer is a big task, so I want to take some space here to introduce myself. I won't tell you that I am the perfect healer for everyone, or that I can heal every issue at hand. What I will say is that if we work together, you have an ally who will support you in finding inner peace, a sense of purpose, and healthy relationship.

I am an energetic, empathic practitioner whose journey has lead me down the path of spiritual practice, healing, and human sexuality. I was raised in a multiracial, complicated home with the early part of my years spent learning from the Unitarian Univeralist Church and the wildlife & people around me. I first learned meditation around age 5 or 6 when my parents taught me to slowly inhale and exhale the word "open" when having an asthma attack.


This simple technique showed me the power that breath and focus can have on the body. Since around that time I can remember working hard to finely tune my  intuition and empathic abilities. Because of this young exposure to energy work, I have developed the ability to feel another's energy and help them use it to heal. But only with the utmost humility and gratitude can I nurture the life around me.


I first studied Daoism & Buddhism in China with my high school and I also learned a great deal about the work of my spirit and the great Spirit from United Campus Ministries in Athens, Ohio and their partners from the Oglala Lakota Nation in South Dakota. Before leaving Ohio, I earned a bachelor's degree in Women's and Gender Studies from Ohio University and worked for local and international nonprofit organizations to promote economic justice for women and children.


Upon arriving in Asheville in 2010, I studied with Denise Greenfield, became a certified Essence Tantra Practitioner, and have since worked with hundreds to develop a holistic body, mind, & spirit Tantra coaching practice. In 2011 I was fortunate to study the culture of ayahuasca and san pedro with a shaman in the Madre de Dios region of Peru. In 2015 I completed A Heart of Service: Shamanic Training with Bloom Post and was also certified through Bloom as a Usui Shamanic Reiki Master & Teacher.

In March 2019 my dear Tantra teacher, mentor, and sister, Denise, suddenly passed away. Having spent the previous couple years traveling and developing a personal tantra practice with my partner, I was heartbroken to have lost such a dear sister before getting the chance to return to Asheville and continue our shared work.  


So to honor Denise's beautiful legacy of healing, I opened Subtle Seed Sanctuary, a space in Asheville where we can continue to share Essence Tantra practices with couples and individuals. 

It is my core philosophy to offer compassion, light, openness, and respect to each person I meet.  I have come from a place of genuine experience of human pain, struggle and post traumatic growth in order to be able to offer seekers a grounded and well rounded perspective on Tantra, sacred sexuality, and the subtle alchemy of our lives. I hope that you'll join me on this journey!

Ever Forward,

Loving Couple

M & K

"Just wanted to let you know that K & I did enjoy our session with Jessica. She was very gentle and professional and gave us both many tips which we have already implemented into our love life and enjoyment of being together. We wish it could have lasted another hour, we were learning so much and Jessica was so kind and caring about our needs and validated our feelings. She was very helpful in making me feel more confident in how I can pleasure K more.


It was a very good experience for us and we wouldn’t mind coming back some other time for “refresher” information.

Thank you and please tell Jes that we very much enjoyed our time with her and her care and patience with us. She made us feel welcomed and we will remember her for a long time."

B & F

"My heartfelt thanks and gratitude for your divine presence in our lives!  Thank you for sharing your time... wisdom...experience...expertise... and soul with us. Not only was it a privilege to meet you...but that YOU were the light that introduced and guided us to a beautiful experience. 


Every moment of our time together was as meaningful and supportive as the next...each blessing, touch, ritual and invitation heightened my awareness that led me to the awakening I had hoped for.  I realize there is “more” I seek...but am grateful that our exercise in trust, was met with such profound and positive energy from YOU!"

Lover's Embrace

S & T

Thank you infinitely for your gifts you shared with T and myself. ...Knowing it is not my place to be intimate with you, my spirit still sends you back a small portion of the love and light you gave to us and I know you give to so many others.

You are a bright shining magik in this lifetime. Of all the individuals I have met in life, you stand out like visiting a wonder of nature. Like being in Yosemite and feeling the vastness of her. This is how I see you. Vast! Majestic! Timeless.

Our tune with you was transforming.

This is simply a sincere acknowledgment of you.

A simple thank you could never suffice.
