Hi, I'm Pina
I'm here to
heal, guide, inspire & create
Where do I even start?
Well, I guess you can say it started with my most powerful, intelligent, best friend:
Four years ago, I felt the inexplicable urge to leave Boston and move across the country to San Diego, alone.
I wasn't sure what I would find here, but I knew I was meant to take a leap. It felt like I was searching for something. I didn't know what it was, But I knew I'd know when I found it.
From an early age, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. And so I did just that. I received my Bachelors and Masters degree in Education from Boston University and began teaching right away.
After spending nearly a decade as a Special Education teacher working in low-income schools, I felt passionate about the work I was doing. But it wasn't really teaching math that did it for me, I saw that the real transformation happened through building authentic relationships, meeting my student's where they were at, and helping them use their strengths to shine.
I never even imagined doing anything else as a career until I answered another intuitive call.
This time it was a call to dive in deep within myself;
to commit to my healing, my growth, my happiness.
For years, I battled depression, self-doubt, and feeling like my deeply felt emotions were an uncontrollable curse. I felt trapped by my own mind. I let myself become a victim to my reality and I didn't want to let these things define me any longer.
So I went internal. I immersed myself in my healing.
Yoga. Reiki. Mindfulness. Art. Women's Circles. Plant Medicine.
The deeper I went, the more clarity I found, and the more inner peace I felt.
Then my intuition spoke up again.
You are a teacher and a healer.
You need to share these gifts.
This is your purpose.
The more connected I had become to myself, the easier it was to distinguish between the resistance of my fears and the guidance of my intuition.
So when she also said,
"Quit your job and start your own healing business."
I listened then too.
And so Peaceful by Pina was born.
Through my creative and intuitive nature, I empower others to heal themselves through energy healing practices and creative expression.
I use my expertise in teaching to create safe containers that allow you to tune into yourself while being supported by a community.
I am passionate about creating a balance of deep healing with light-hearted play.
I would love to work,
(& play) with you.
