My path towards becoming a Coach, Shamanic Practitioner and Reiki Master (CRP) actually began as a result of the cumulative effects I faced as a full-time single parent dealing with major career and life changes, addictions, relationship breakdowns, and a traumatic home invasion which involved my being abducted from my home while my two young boys were asleep in bed.
It was through having to seek external help myself to effectively guide me through my own healing and recovery that I began to understand and appreciate the immense level of responsibility taken on by a practitioner when working with someone in such a vulnerable and terrifying state.
Growing up I never had any connections to Spirituality, no belief in “God”. I had no special abilities or intuitive gifts. In fact, I found it hard to believe in anything beyond what I could touch, taste, hear, smell, or see in the present moment.
It wasn’t until AFTER having tried years and years of therapy, medication, and other countless methods of help and “healing”, that I realized I needed to reach beyond what I knew or could see.
How could I be seeing a therapist, taking all of the medication prescribed to me, reading self-help books, listening to motivational speakers, and be in a WORSE state than I ever was before??
It was at this moment that I truly felt broken beyond repair.
This was when I started to open up my very strong-willed mind to something new: Shamanism and Spiritual Healing.
It was at this time that I was introduced to an Algonquin Shaman who was offering a 2-year training programs in professional Shamanism and Energy Medicine Healing. And while I wasn’t entirely sure what that meant or if it would even help me at that point, I knew I had to try.
Originally I registered for the Shamanism course for myself, doubting that it would do anything, assuming the results would be just the same as all the other “healing” methods I had tried before. But slowly, month after month, session after session, proof after proof, I not only FELT things change, but I SAW how I changed and how that affected who I was, HOW I felt, and WHAT I did. Over time I was able to come completely off all of the medications I had been prescribed for depression, anxiety and pre-menstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). I stopped abusing myself with alcohol and I no longer sabotaged my efforts for prosperity, abundance and success. The greatest result of all though? My life became more peaceful and purposeful.
Don’t get me wrong; getting there took a lot of effort, it took courage, it took sweat and it took tears – and I wanted to quit many (MANY!!) times along the way. But at least there were sustainable results that kept me motivated to keep going; a direction towards feeling and living a better life, a new outcome I could see other than what I had been experiencing for so much of my life, before.
As a result of those initial 2-years of experiencing help and healing unlike anything I had tried before, I decided to spend the next 7 years committed to the rigorous and disciplined professional training required to become a masterful coach and Shamanic practitioner, so that I could offer that help and healing to others as well.
My name is Beth Sturdevant, and I am the Shamanic healer for people who want to feel whole again.

Beth Sturdevant has spent the past 8 years passionately pursuing the education, training and certification necessary to become a professional Coach, Quantum Shamanic Reiki Master and Teacher, Spiritual Healer and Shamanic Practitioner.
Her compassionate yet strong presence as a coach and Shamanic practitioner, creates an atmosphere that helps people feel brave enough to courageously go places they might not otherwise feel safe going with other practitioners or coaches.
This promotes a faster path to achieving one’s goals, as you learn to believe in yourself and live life on your own terms.
I started seeing Beth at the most difficult time of my life. After just one session, I had so much energy and felt much better than I had in months. I could finally start seeing the light and the cloud lifting. The follow up sessions helped to delve deeper into my healing and forced me to look inside myself to find the pain, face it, and deal with it in a gentle yet powerful way. Outside of the sessions, Beth is there, seeing how you are, providing resources and just checking in. That is also part of the process and healing; to know that as someone who is struggling, there is a gentle voice guiding and caring about you. Today I am on my path to full recovery because of Beth, and I am very grateful.
The help I received from Beth was transformational. From our very first session, I noticed a progressive shift in myself. When I first started working with Beth, I was extremely anxious and in a depressive state most days. I allowed myself to be controlled by fear and insecurities. These days, I feel more secure within myself and have a renewed sense of purpose. Each session leaves me feeling empowered and ready to face challenges in my everyday life. I thank the Universe for bringing Beth into my life when I needed her most, and for that I am truly grateful.
