Jen Rizza

Founder of Newtown Wellness Collective

Reiki Master, RYT-200,

IAHC Certified Integrative Health & Wellness Coach

Jen views her clients on the whole, working with them to find optimal physical, emotional and spiritual wellness, balanced across all avenues of their lives.  She practices a whole foods-based diet, a yoga philosophy lifestyle, intuitive living and holds deep gratitude for the many gifts in her life.  With clients, Jen has helped them to restore greater energetic balance, implement healthy eating and lifestyle habits and challenge limiting beliefs for greater overall joy and presence in their lives.  Jen uses a multi-discipline approach, weaving together somatic processing through yoga, energetic healing through Reiki and supportive guidance to look more deeply into one's possibilities.  It is her belief that wellness and the capacity for wellbeing across mind, body and spirit already lie within, waiting to be nurtured and restored.

Victoria Pekhnik

MA in Marriage & Family Therapy,

Reiki Master, Intuitive Guide

Victoria believes that by opening the traditional space of therapy to all of the healing modalities known through the ages, we allow for the possibility of a tremendously powerful healing.  She blends traditional and alternative health-restoring philosophies, with the latest evidence-based therapy models and the wisdom of ancient healing arts.  In sessions with Victoria, clients explore early childhood experiences as well as intuitive counseling which may include Reiki, Oracle/Tarot guidance, crystals, mediation, sound therapy, art therapy, gentle yoga, breath work, and/or creative pursuits.
