Dory’s apprenticeship and shamanic initiations with Sandra Ingerman, Dory’s primary Shamanic Teacher and an internationally renowned shaman, included a focus on the healing practices of Soul Retrieval, Extraction, and Ancestral Healing, as well as a an intensive two-year shamanic teacher-training.

Dory has received numerous accolades as a presenter and public speaker at symposiums, conferences, and programs focused on trauma recovery.


She is currently writing a memoir focused on how her trauma-filled life eventually led her to shamanism as a practice to help others recover their authentic selves.

Dory is married and lives with her wife in Maine with their two Portuguese Water Dogs. In her spare time, she loves swimming, being in the woods, dancing and cooking.

Lady, you have changed my life in such a positive and profound way. I am eternally grateful.
