 About Julie
The name of my business is Solace, LLC, which means a place of comfort and safety.  This is the intent behind all the work I do, to create a space for clients where stress relief and a return to inner balance can happen.

Often a client will come to see me not knowing exactly what he or she needs, but needing "something" beyond what they've already tried - to help themselves to have more energy, be more at peace, feel like themselves again. My job as a facilitator is to give people the tools they need in order to navigate successfully into a more empowered life, and to come into greater alignment with who they really are.

Since 2008 I've had a successful private practice in licensed therapeutic massage and energy work. Certifications include Reiki Master/Teacher of Usui, Karuna®, Gendai and Sekhem-Seichim Reiki; EFT Master Practitioner; Licensed Massage Therapist specializing in Hawaiian Lomilomi healing techniques; Reconnective Healing® practitioner trained to give the Reconnection®; Seraphim Blueprint practitioner and teacher.  I offer the Raindrop Technique with Young Living essential oils; crystal healing layouts; chakra balancing, and house blessings and clearings.  I'm also a mesa carrier in the Peruvian tradition, as a member of the Shamanic Healing Institute's Ayllu, and I offer the Rites of the Munay-Ki.

Appointments may be booked online at the links on this page, and classes in Reiki and Seraphim Blueprint are ongoing.  A class can be arranged for you and a friend.  Questions are welcome - email me at Juliapf@gmail.com, or call 410.564.9881.

There's a story I've often told that seems to resonate with folks, so I'll share about my personal journey here.  Many years ago, I was diagnosed with major depression. I saw a therapist and took anti-depressants to try to alleviate the sadness and fatigue, mostly without success. Finally one day while in a medicated fog, I ran a stop sign. Luckily there was no accident, but it was a wake-­up call that couldn't be ignored.  The side-effects of the drugs were, for me, as dangerous as the depression! 

A new wellness center down the street had just opened, offering Reiki treatments and classes.  I decided to give it a try, and to my grateful amazement, Reiki treatments changed my life.  With a sense of peace and wholeness I'd never felt before, I knew it was part of my path to learn Reiki myself.

I became a Reiki Master/Teacher and a Seraphim Blueprint (angelic healing) teacher, and consider it a very important part of my service to empower others by teaching these systems of self­-healing.  Of course each person is unique and no one can guarantee healing results, but speaking from my own experience, I credit these modalities with helping me to remain happily medication-free.

Seeing myself as a lifelong student of wellness, I’m always on the lookout for new health tips, 
techniques, products and ways to feel better.  It gives me great joy to share these with my clients to 
help make their journeys a little bit easier.  The idea of being of service to others through a connection to universal source is central to my practice. 

I'm the mother of three wonderful kids, and my hobbies include walking in the woods, practicing Qi 
Gong, meditation, and being owned by three cats.
