About the Author

Laurelle has been using nature’s medicine for over 25 years. From crystals, essential oils, sound and movement to energy healing, meditation and astrology—she is most well known for her work with crystals—drawing upon her studies from five different crystal healing lineages and teaching about the metaphysical use of stones since 2009. Known as a spiritual alchemist, bridge-builder and crystal maven, she is deeply grounded in an earth-centered consciousness and helps to bring in new understanding on health, healing, and spiritual alignment. She believes that our relationship with the natural world is key to connecting us to the Divine, Ourselves, and All That Is.

A certified master of Crystology, Laurelle additionally holds certificates in energy healing, Source Awareness meditation, essential oils, and Western astrology. She has studied Zhineng Medical Qigong with Master Jianshe Liu, Classical Chinese Stone Medicine with Jeffrey Yuen, sound healing with Fabien Maman, aromatherapy with David Crow, and voice and movement with master teachers in their fields. On a spiritual path for most of her life, she has studied a plethora of meditation and energy healing modalities for many years. Laurelle is also a reverend through the Universal Life Church (featured in the award-winning documentary “Married & Counting…”), and performs ceremonies for life events and nature-centered celebrations. Connecting with Crystals is her first full book, additionally featured in Harmony in Chakras along with 33 other authors. Look for more books and media over the next few years through this website and her digital shop.

Based in New York City, Laurelle travels throughout the country to speak and teach workshops (including Crystal Healing Certifications since 2017), and can be seen and heard frequently as a guest on TV, radio, podcasts and internet talk shows. Her vibrational healing therapy and private consultation business began in 2009, and The Faerie Den was born from that in 2011. In addition to in-person visits at her healing space and shop, she offers most of her services virtually via phone or video chat. Learn more about her healing and consultation services on
