“Your pain is a seed of love that forgot how to grow.
Water it with awareness, warm it with kindness, sing to it with courage.
Your pain, loved by you in this way, will transform into grace.”

Hi, I’m Luisa Kolker.

I am a shamanic healer and licensed psychotherapist in private practice for over twenty-five years.

In my shamanic work, I offer myself as a bridge between the world of human concerns and the worlds of spirit to bring unconscious, fear-based patterns into the light of consciousness.

As a psychotherapist, I share relational and spiritual skills so clients become self-healing, rather than projecting their innate self-healing abilities onto others.

I assist my clients in facing their wounds and strengths so they may develop a sturdy, trusting relationship with Source, with their own inner selves and then, by extension, with their relationships in the outer world.

The healing work I offer assists clients in becoming the best friend and ally for whom they’ve always wished.

As a seasoned and respectful navigator of the inner planes, I know that the pathways into inner space can be daunting. I help clients explore these lesser-known worlds, where healing and transformation happen at a root cause level.

I hope you will have a look at my website and see if this transformational healing work is right for you.

In Love & Transformation,

“Luisa– Thank you so much. Every session I have had with you has been very powerful for me. Thank you for your unwavering commitment to the truth. I can’t tell you what a relief it has been to work with someone who has such an amazing gift for seeing through the bullshit…. reflecting it back with compassion while offering support & empowerment. … Your strength, clarity, & vision quenches a deep yearning to really be seen and allows me to relax into the process of healing.  It is comforting to know that you have experienced similar circumstances & now it has become part of your evolution as a healer.  A reminder to me that much of my past pain & experiences have been fertile ground for my own evolution & so too shall this be. Thank you again! ”
—Jill D., Ohio


“If I needed some shamanic healing or an honest to goodness, down to earth, competent, authentic therapist who has done her own work on her own personal journey and will treat you with love and respect but kick ass, as well, Luisa is where I would turn. I have the utmost respect for her. P.S. She is beautiful inside and out.”
—Jamie Conglose, Corporate Change Consultation & Director of Wisdom Councils

—Ann Filemyr, Academic Dean of the Institute of American Indian Arts

“Luisa is one of the best examples I know, of someone who does spiritually-sourced work, and has a solid, grounded and clinically sound background and sensibility, so that NOBODY could mistake mystical work with woo-woo when they experience her. That is a truly great contribution.”
—James Michael Nolan, President of Southwestern College

“I have greatly benefited from working with Luisa in one-to-one sessions as well as her workshops and other events. Luisa is a masterful facilitator who has clearly done her own spiritual and psychological work. She is gifted at creating a space of magic and transformation where deep healing can and does take place. And she’s a heck of a lot of fun as well.”
—Maia Duerr, Director of Five Directions Consulting and The Liberated Life Project

“Thank you so much for the ceremony and workshop yesterday. I found the ceremony very meaningful and life changing for me. I was so pleased with the information I was able to access. I find your ability as a shaman to be very powerful, focused and so positive. 
    You have helped me beyond what you could imagine. Especially appreciated in these group sessions is your teaching ability. You have things planned out well and are very organized. You know how to prepare us, give us time to check in, give us appropriate time to get up and stretch, take bathroom breaks, etc. 
    I feel safe in your groups. I know you are in control and won’t let one of the participants take over, as has happened in other groups I’ve been in. 
    I look forward to more time in your excellent company and enlightenment. Thank you so deeply. I feel like a very fortunate woman.”
—Connie D., Retired Psychotherapist

“I’ve studied the concept of Source Energy for the past fifteen years, and hadn’t found an effective way to truly connect with this energy. That changed immediately after learning and experiencing Luisa’s 3 Energy Body Healing Model. I’ve learned how to connect with Source through my Back Energy Body and that has created several breakthrough healing experiences for me. Lots of healing practices have given me a taste of different dimensional realities; Luisa’s 3 Energy Body Model has integrated them into my being.”
—Glen McKerrihan, Santa Fe, NM

“Luisa—You may or not realize what you have done, but you have awakened me to what I dared not acknowledge, what I was raised to accept. I am my own responsibility  now, and no one has a right to take my energy, no matter how much I love them. Thank you, Luisa.” —B. A., Houston, TX

“The Black Lilith Ceremony was a wonderful gift to give to myself. I trusted that Luisa would create a fabulous venue for women to stretch their wings and I was right.  I left feeling more connected to my own ‘wild woman’ and to every other woman in the circle and beyond. Thanks so much, Luisa!”  —H.W.
