Providing practical, natural ways to reduce stress, increase confidence and create a life you enjoy is what my work is about. I'm an internationally certified Energy worker who knows first hand the toll long-term, severe stress can have.
After years of trying to combat adrenal fatigue, physical pain and depression via traditional methods, I quickly restored my physical and emotional health using simple, gentle energy psychology techniques. The results were so fast and effective, I was compelled to share the tools I used - with everyone. . . so I did! And, here we are!

"I was experiencing a paralyzing episode of depression due to recent emotional trauma. During our work together, Karen helped me neutralize this depression and recognize a group of issues and contributing problems that surrounded this major trauma. She also just listened to me in an attentive, caring, and totally professional way. Aside from the tapping, it was wonderful to simply be in her presence. I feel like a new person now. I am happy and I feel like I have all the tools I need to continue to get happier and happier. I can't recommend her services highly enough. Thank you, Karen, for helping me in my time of need."

If your confidence is low,
you have limiting beliefs about yourself.
If you're experiencing anxiety or feeling stuck,
there's a disruption in your energy body.
If you are stressed out, pessimistic and underperforming,
you're operating at a low energetic vibration.
Everything is energy and energy likes to move. We move what is stuck, change beliefs that are holding you back, and empower you with simple tools you can use to create a life you love to wake up to.
It's a powerful, profound experience.
It's what my work is all about.
"Before I began working with Karen,I had a great deal of anxiety, depression and low confidence. I had been able to hide my issues for years which became a physical barrier to a happy life. I am now able to go through my life with confidence, focus and little to no anxiety. Better yet, with the tools that Karen showed me, I can work on my own energy clearing any time I feel the need."
You’re smart, ambitious, and successful.
You’re all about being the best you can be. You know what it means to persevere because you show up every day as the champion you need to be to ensure success at work even though you feel held back by issues from your past.
You know life could be better, but you’ve lived with these issues and false beliefs about yourself for so long you can’t imagine there’s a way to finally leave them behind.
Hi, I’m Karen Aquinas.
Whether you want to change the situation you’re in, break free from negative thoughts, stop bad habits or just plain feel better, I can help.
I work with smart go-getters who are tired of being held back by past issues and are ready to step into a more empowered way of living. Together, we change the energy that keeps them stuck so they can live life to the fullest.
Over the years I’ve become certified in several energy modalities. I use them all, along with studies in energy psychology, epigenetics, coaching, and personal development to create an amazing life, grow my business and help my clients.
During my work with clients, my own get ‘er done proficiency helped me develop a combination of energy tools that are perfectly suited for smart, busy people who are ready to change their life by changing their energy, and who may or may not know much about energy work.
It’s been fabulous to watch clients take back control of their lives.
They’ve upleveled their businesses, their relationships, their lives! One even describes it as “Living in the Miracle Zone”.
My live presentations, tapping workshops and various energy wellness classes have allowed me to bring "Useful - functional, simple, feel better tools for optimum living and thriving” (L.K. Bend, Oregon, USA) to people around the world. It’s been an eye-opening and uplifting journey.
It is my honor and privilege every day to help people who are looking for a healthy, sustainable way to leave past issues behind and be happy. Today I help my clients "live life from a more authentic, joyful and productive place " (Michelle Peterson, Portland,Oregon, USA), "live life at a higher level, know how to move through emotional energy, release limiting beliefs and move up the scale to happiness, and get back there when life happens.” (Susan, Store Owner, Corvallis, Oregon, USA)
When my clients leave their past issues behind and step into a more empowered way of living, they experience more success in business,
an ease with life, courage, improved relationships, increased self-confidence, access to inner wisdom, happiness and ... working the Law of Attraction - more money, great people, resources, opportunities, and more!
You arrive at a place of peace, a knowing in your core that everything is okay - and if it isn't right now-it will be, and you can affect that change.
If you’re tired of being held back by past issues and ready to step into a more empowered way of living I invite you to check out my
Work With Me page. You’ll find the schedule for my in- person events as well as see how we can work together privately.
I love that you're looking into energy work! I wish you the very best in your journey.
