If broken by an inside force, life begins. Great things always begin from inside. – Tamara Kulish”

My Journey

Forging my path as a professional healer and reader was my soul’s calling for this lifetime; but discovering the call within myself took time. 

One of my earliest experiences as a child was seeing a kindergarten classmate’s aura and understanding the emotion behind the color that I saw around their head. Although I wasn’t aware of what an aura was – nor did I realize I was the only one seeing these colors – my mother confirmed that some events that were occurring in that classmate’s life that would lead them to feel this way. 

This experience, combined with my father’s paranormal and supernatural experiences, led him to enrolling me in a short intuition development workshop around seven-years-old. The intuitive activities we did in that workshop came very naturally to me, and afterwards, I had significant and unexplainable experiences throughout my teen and early adult years. Most of the time I just felt “different,” but not in a good way.

I often felt like an “outsider looking in” most of my entire life. I struggled to connect and socialize with my peers, and even more so in find my place in the world upon graduating college. Being in an environment of constant rejection deeply affected my self esteem, self worth, and my ability to believe in my capacity to “adult” on my own. I tried talk therapy to address these challenges. Although it was helpful, I found the healing arts made a more profound impact in healing my heart wounds, and addressing the deep ancestral karma and trauma from the past.

Now I understand, my being “different” is in fact because I’m here to create something new and different in the world! 

How I Got Started in the Healing Arts

Despite being very naturally intuitive, being a career healer wasn’t something I ever considered, nor even knew was an option. Like many graduates, my goal was to “get a job.” During my job search I received constant rejection and kept spinning my wheels in odd jobs; so, I began taking healing arts workshops for fun. 

I listened to the call within me, and attended an intuition development workshop led by Linda Schiller Hanna (predictor of the fall of Sky Lab in the 1970s). At the time, I didn’t really have any expectations of what the workshop was, I just knew I was supposed to be there. In this workshop, I learned that the inner pulls, voice, and strong hunches I had been having most all of my life, actually were more than helpful and accurate!  The more I tried to push doors that lead to paths not meant for me, the more I was bounced back to the healing arts. So, I began to explore other healing modalities such as: Reiki, Quantum Touch, Biofield Tuning, and Hypnosis. 

Realizing I couldn’t ignore the calling any longer, in October 2011 and at the encouragement of family and friends, I began my career into the healing arts, offering readings, hypnosis, and reiki,  in Del Ray-Alexandria, Virginia at Vital Mind Body Therapy.

What People Are Saying

Biofield Tuning

I had a Biofield Tuning session with Meredith and it was unlike any energy work I have ever experienced!…Meredith was able to pick up on the frequencies of specific events and experiences from my life based on the area she was working on with stunning accuracy, and it was exactly related to what I was going through and what I didn’t know I needed to hear…I highly recommend a Biofield Tuning session with Meredith and look forward to my next tuning with her!! Thank you Meredith!!

Meredith McDonough made a believer out of me. I came to her for hypnosis because I was experiencing nearly a month of incessant muscle twitching in my eyelid and arm…Dr’s advice was to “work out at the gym more often”, (gee thanks) and further advised that when it came to muscle twitching, there was no real medical diagnosis as to the cause, nor many treatment options available… I decided to try an alternative approach, and luckily found Meredith. After 3 sessions, I am no longer experiencing the muscle spasms, and I feel so much less stressed out. What she’s done is help me identify the root causes of the stress, and deal with it, head on. The results have been impressive. My family and friends have even commented on the positive change in the way I carry myself. The effects have spilled over in other positive ways, especially much more restful sleep.

Energy Healing

I had a wonderful Quantum Energy Healing by Meredith McDonough over the phone. She intuitively pinpointed every current and ancient issue in my body, gave them light and energy, and left me feeling amazing. Highly accurate, gentle, and transformative. Recommended! She knew where a missing tooth was, adhesions in my right shoulder from surgery when I was 5, etc. Astonishing! She was clear, gentle, efficient and professional. Medicine of the future, move over. This is the way!

Intuitive Reading

I completed an Intuition Development workshop with her years ago, and those teachings still help me until this day.  She is a powerful healer and AMAZING intuitive.  Always spot on.
