Healing is my calling to which I have dedicated my life.

I have had dogs, cats, ponies, and horses my whole life. As a child, I can remember holding sick animals in my lap to soothe them with my hands, treating wounds with minimal supplies, and comforting homeless dogs. I was drawn to herbs and natural remedies and spent hours alone in the forest, even as a young girl.

And there was always this knowing inside of me that all ailments – whether animals or people – had an underlying cause and that dis-ease was not a random event.

But, as many healers often do, I suppressed my natural abilities as an empath and resisted feeling people and animals on a deeper level because I was so over-sensitive to their energies, and my own for that matter.

Being young and raised in an environment that could not nurture healers I didn’t know how to handle the information I was receiving and all of the emotions attached to it. So I simply shut it down and put my energies in unhealthier places. Not surprisingly, this caused me some difficult and tumultuous times.

But over the years those struggles became opportunities, as life challenges often do, to learn more about myself and others.

I discovered how to re-connect to myself and strengthen my connection to the inner spirit.

And, in time, I learned that my real mission in life, my only mission in life, was to help make the world a kinder, more compassionate, and happier place for all sentient beings.

So here I am twenty-seven years and tens of thousands of people and animals later doing what I do best:

healing, guiding, coaching, teaching, and writing

I practice as a gifted medical intuitive and use diet, therapeutic nutrition, homeopathy, kinesiology, and different varieties of energy medicine to track and resolve all health imbalances, be they physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual.

I have extensive experience teaching seminars, workshops, and conference presentations on topics of health and healing for both animals and for people but my absolute favourite events are facilitating destination healing retreats, animal communication workshops, and online healing courses.

I am the founder, formulator and CEO of Riva’s Remedies, a line of high quality herbal and homeopathic products for animals.

I have written three books: Healing People The Marijke Method, Healing Horses Their Way, and Healing Dogs Their Way

And now it is time to bring the animals into the forefront.


Animals have SO much wisdom, compassion and spiritual depth to offer us, and we have not even begun to fully understand them and what kind of positive and profound impact they can have on our lives.

Our animals need to be heard and listened to, for our sake and theirs.

So, my mission has broadened from helping to create a better world for all sentient beings to deepening the connection between animals – both domestic and wildlife – and people.

Please join me for the journey! It will be a life-altering and stunning experience.
