Julie has been a Nurse and Nurse Practitioner for 26 years with the bulk of her career spent in labor and delivery, internal medicine and education. 

Another layer called and she went on to study spiritual psychology, energy medicine and developmental trauma at Barbara Brennan School of Healing from 2012-2016.

Since then Julie has traveled the world and studied with a variety of teachers to deepen her own integration.  She has spent the last 5 years focused on nervous system education and has created two continuing education programs through the American Holistic Nurses Association. 

She now marries her worlds to create offerings that combine anatomy and physiology, quantum biology, somatic practice, continuum movement and light therapy to support others.

Firefly Light Therapy


Address pain and inflammation, mitigate sports injuries, combat gut-related issues, and support cognitive health with targeted, individualized light therapy.


Light therapy has been studied and used since the 1950’s with amazing results for many conditions. All you have to do is go to PubMed and type in “Photo biomodulation'' to see thousands of articles about research on the efficacy of light therapy. 

Firefly Light Therapy isn't like the popular laser treatments marketed by most medical professionals you'll find in use today. In fact, it's 10x more powerful than even the most high-powered units, uses 8 wavelengths of light and penetrates 8 inches into the body. This means Firefly can tackle some of your most difficult issues by rapidly increasing the energy in the cells, reducing inflammation, and calming nerve tissues, while increasing serotonin, melatonin, dopamine, and more. 



Light therapy was originally developed specifically for pain. From acute pain and injuries to chronic pain, Firefly can help. The co-developer of this product is also a doctor and used before and after infrared imaging and patient feedback to continually improve the product into what it is today. Treatments are painless and take no more than 10 minutes with 3-5 treatments recommended to see results.

parasites, bacteria, Lyme disease, auto-immunity, IBS, and more

For these issues, we start with an FSCAN. In less than 2 minutes we can pinpoint the parasites, bacteria, and pathogens by name causing your discomfort. We then program the Firefly to the exact frequency that can eliminate them. Imagine the opera singer breaking the glass with the vibration created by her voice – this works in the same way, literally causing the parasites to shatter so you can eliminate them naturally. 

Did you know that cognitive decline is often a direct result of parasites in the gut? In other words, you may not be experiencing digestive discomfort but instead, you have fatigue, forgetfulness, and foggy thinking due to these invaders. Our FSCAN device can find them, and the Firefly helps eliminate them! The medical community is finally connecting the dots between gut health and cognitive function.

Alzheimer's, ALS, Epstein-Barr, cognitive decline, diabetic neuropathy, traumatic brain injuries, stroke recovery

Firefly Light Therapy has shown very promising results in halting further cognitive decline and even in restoring memories, balance, and function. If you or a loved one are suffering from one of these debilitating neurological conditions, there is hope and there is help! 
An incredible amount of research exists documenting the success of light therapy on our own government site (PubMed) for these kinds of issues which all fall under the "neurological dysfunction" category.

*More Stimulating Light
The Firefly has mixed-spectrum blue, red and 850 and 940nm near infrared light. It has been shown that blue light stimulates lymph activity, promotes healing of cutaneous injuries (burns, cuts, and contusions) and even helps to combat MRSA. The benefits of 850nm and 940nm near Infrared light include increased ATP production, vasodilation in injured tissues of arteries, lymphatics, and veins, stimulation of stem cells, reduced inflammation, relief of pain, myofascial release, increased delivery of oxygen into the mitochondria, increased production of collagen, and boosts immunity.

*More Penetrating Power
Output power is a very important factor for permeation depth. While lower-powered devices (typically operating in the 500 mW or less range) may benefit cells at the superficial level, they fail to penetrate deeper tissue, which is often the root problem of chronic disease. The Firefly can target tissues deep within the body. More power equates to more photon energy being transmitted to the cells, which also reduces the duration and number of treatments.

*F-SCAN Personalized Treatment
With the addition of the F-scan and function generator to the Firefly Clinic Pro model you gain a powerful and accurate new way to obtain issue or health concern frequencies that are then sent to the Firefly to be applied to the client. The F-Scan and Function Generator is used with the Clinic Pro Model to identify bacteria, viruses, parasites and substances in the body. The procedure is quick and non-invasive. 

Frequency information from the scan is used to program the Function Generator which inputs frequency information to the Firefly, allowing a customizable therapy tailored to the patient’s specific health ailments. Each patient will receive a personalized health assessment. 

*A Safer Alternative
The Firefly therapy utilizes High-Intensity LED technology which is incoherent light. This is opposite of LASER which is coherent light. Coherent light (LASER) raises many more safety concerns/hazards as the light is concentrated and emitted in a tight beam that does not spread out at a distance from the laser. This means the same degree of hazard can be present both close to and far from the laser which if not conducted properly can cause harm to the patient. The eye can focus a laser beam to a very small, intense spot on its retina, which can result in a burn or blind spot.



Firefly Therapy for pain simply requires a short visit and exposing the area of concern. If you have gut or cognitive decline issues, we'll do an FSCAN first. Here's how it works.

The FSCAN takes just 2 minutes to complete. During the scan, you'll simply sit quietly holding a metal cylinder in one hand and a finger clip will be placed on the other hand. There's no need to disrobe and it's completely painless.

Next, we'll go over what we see and explain what is out of normal range. Then we'll program the Firefly to eliminate these pathogens or parasites and determine a recommended number of treatments. Typically, 3-5 treatments are needed.

Then, you’ll either lie down or sit in a comfortable position depending on the area that needs attention. Skin needs to be exposed (except on the head - no need for a buzz cut!) but you may need to remove an article of clothing. You'll feel a warm soothing sensation during the session which lasts a maximum of 10 minutes.

Typically, patients FEEL the difference or pass a parasite and know they are doing better, but often with parasites, we want to make sure they're gone so we may suggest another scan. These scans are very affordable.
