About Me

Mikki Baloy has studied with shamans, ritual-keepers, and mystics from around the world. Receiving the wisdom of many diverse traditions, both from her mixed ancestral bloodlines and from other relations, gives her a unique opportunity and responsibility to be a bridge-builder between the worlds of our ancestors and the Western paradigm. Her intention and commitment as a healer (and as a human) is to gently remind clients and communities of their birthright: an inherent connection to land and to Love. Mikki’s holistic approach to healing is both intuitive and grounded, fusing indigenous traditions with yoga, Buddhism, and three decades of creative training as a performer, writer, and musician.  She was the Director of a 9/11 foundation in New York City, helping to create and maintain programs to assist many thousands of people—while undertaking her own healing journey.  She is the author of Hallowed Underground: Sacred Hope and Healing in Dark Times, which describes her recovery from PTSD, depression, divorce, and sexual assault, and she has been featured in two books about post-disaster resiliency. Mikki is also a yoga teacher and minister of animism, and speaks and writes from her own direct experience.

Mikki’s expertise includes:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety and Panic Attacks
  • Resolving known traumatic experiences, including sexual assault
  • Recovering from abusive relationships
  • Grief, sadness, and bereavement
  • Rites of passage and navigating transitions
  • Supporting physical healing after injury or illness
