Client Testimonials
"I came to Gaia Wellness for a Journey Within Day Retreat, seeking alternative and additional healing for a concussion and post concussion syndrome that left me paralyzed with anxiety, fear, sadness and pain.
Traditional medicine was doing all it could to help, but I just felt there was more available that I hadn’t found yet. Meditation was a new practice to help give my brain a rest from the constant overwhelm of thoughts and worry. My desire to get more from meditation than an app could provide led me to a personal meditation with Billie.
With the healing and peaceful energy that ooozed out of Billie, I decided to try Reiki that very day. And wow, that first Reiki session opened me up to a world of healing within me. She was instantaneously my guide on a healing journey that, over a period of a few months, has led me back to my truth, who I want to be, and what I want from my life.
I see my concussion now as a blessing that led me to her, which led me back to myself. I am grateful everyday that a google search miraculously led me to Billie. I continue to seek her support and guidance on this journey of life.
Thank you Billie"

"I was looking for help, guidance and succour during a very difficult time in my life when I went to a personal retreat at Gaia. 
During the retreat, I had a one-on-one session with Billie and it was wonderful, in every sense.  Using a mix of voice, touch and sounds, Billie created a safe, re-assuring environment.  With gentle insightful questions and a healing touch, Billie guided me to a calmness of mind I have not experienced in a long while. 
Mentally, my spirits are lifted, I feel lighter.  Physically, I feel different...a calmness, almost an afterglow.  As a result of the session, I have more clarity in what I want to do to heal. 
Thanks again, Billie!  That was awesome."

"A friend of mine was planning to attend the Create Your Own Reality Retreat as she worked with Billie directly on energy healing and she recommended that I join her. I was hesitant at first as I am not one to share my personal self/flaws/weakness/vulnerability with others so I was afraid I would not benefit- also it was only a weekend so what can change in two days? My friend spoke so highly of Billie though that I thought I must try it out.
Let me tell you that this retreat was so transformational- I laughed, I cried, I let out so much stress and did so much self-reflection in that retreat. Everyone who attended, with the same mindset, was so kind and there was an amazing positive energy all through the beautiful cabin. Add to it the view of the forest and water was so serene and I cannot begin to talk about how great the food was.
What really did it for me was that I suffer from trichotillomania where I pull out my eyelashes when I am extremely stressed. It started 28 years ago and I have not been able to break the habit. I have always felt shame and sadness that I was not able to stop myself and I have caught my children watching me a few times accidently even though I really tried my best to let them see me. This added to the feeling of guilt as trich. can be a learned behavior and I never wanted to be the cause of them also developing it as well.
During the breathwork that was done during the retreat, I was told to go back to an event of my childhood that was impactful, I went back to the first day I pulled my eyelashes and I saw my adult self stopping that little girl's anxious hand and telling her that everything will be ok- she doesn't need to pull her eyelashes. When the breathwork was complete, I felt transformed and I vowed that I would never pull my eyelashes again.
It has been over 2 months and I am happy to report that I have broken that habit.
Thank you Billie for helping me cure a mental illness I thought I was doomed to live with for the rest of my life."


I attended a Personal Transformation retreat in 2019. It was like 10 years of therapy in 5 days.
It changed and reset my life in profound and sustainable ways.

I've leaned on Billie's compassionate inquiry sessions for the last 4 years and
always find her wisdom equal parts uplifting and shaking.

The food at Gaia is consistently delicious and the environment they've created is truly special.
A one-of-a-kind place that I return to whenever I need a safe and brave space to explore my life.
