Nancy Straatmann is a certified meditation instructor, mindfulness based coach, Holy Fire Reiki Master, and licensed professional counselor. Nancy’s interest in healing began 30 years ago as she explored ways to maintain wellness through healthy eating, yoga and breathwork practices, alternative philosophies, and mindfulness training. In the mid-1990’s she immersed herself in healing through grief and led grief support groups for eight years. In 2006 Nancy studied with Deepak Chopra and became affiliated with the Chopra Center as a certified instructor of Primordial Sound Meditation. She meditates daily and loves sharing the many benefits that meditation has brought to her life. By transcending our thoughts, we develop mindfulness to carry throughout our daily lives. Nancy’s healing path led her to receive a Master’s degree in counseling from Webster University. She obtained the license of professional counselor, as well as certification as an alcohol and drug counselor through the state of Missouri. Putting her trainings together, Nancy uses meditative, mindfulness based, and cognitive practices with individuals and groups, as a teacher, coach, mentor, and counselor. Nancy has been a Reiki practitioner for 25 years and recently became a Holy Fire Reiki Master, which deepened her ability to help others through the power of loving energy. Her goal is to help people love themselves and trust their inner wisdom through a balance of mind, body, and spirit. She believes that as we create peace within ourselves we help to create peace in the world.To learn more information or to book an appointment with Nancy contact her at 314.324.3405 or NancyStraatmannLPC@gmail.com.
