Jen Halpern Reiki Master Practitioner, Intuitive Consultant

Ten years ago, Jen started down a path to learn about energy healing.  At that time, she was looking for alternative answers to western medicine.  She had no idea what Reiki was or that energy healing was a practice until a friend told her about it. Jen was so intrigued that she decided to learn and pursue the study of Reiki.  As she progressed, Jen started to peel back the layers of her own personal wounds. She began to witness the healing of deep-rooted emotional issues and severe back pain, which she thought would never end.  

She became inspired from the relief she felt from this different, yet completely effective technique.  Jen knew she wanted to bring the support of Reiki healing to others. Her practice now focuses primarily on supporting women’s health issues and well-being. 

Reiki opened up a whole new road for her to follow. From there, she has incorporated the complementary skills of intuitive consulting to help bring overall spiritual support to her clients.  Jen holds a Reiki Master Certificate from Reiki Essence Healing’s 200-hour program and certification from the Wainwright House with Eileen Savage for Reiki 1 & 2.

Her Intuitive Counseling certificates are with the accredited Holistic Studies Institute in NYC as an Intuitive Consultant and Medium. She has also trained in Intuitive Development with James Van Praagh and the School of Mystical Arts.
