Who We Are

My name is Rev. Nicole Estefana (she/her). 

I am an ordained Presbyterian Pastor (PCUSA) who has anxiety and severe trauma. I have spent my career working as a chaplain with people in crisis. I help other people living with mental health concerns or grief to connect with their spirituality, whatever that is, and appreciate their own unique amazingness as they continue to grow. I am a biracial woman (white Chicana) who is also a Curadera (traditional Mexican Healer), an Advanced Crystal Master, and Reiki Practitioner.

I started Grounded and Growing Earth Healing and Wellness in 2022 with the help of my husband Greg who himself has ADHD and depression. After almost two decades of ministry as a hospital chaplain, I found that 20 years of seeing people only in crisis was wearing me down. I wanted a way to help people with all of my gifts outside of emergency situations. For that reason, Grounded and Growing Wellness is a curated group of products that I have tested personally, products that I have made myself and tested with the help of the Lipan Apache community in Central Texas, and spiritual healing services that I offer. 

However you found your way to my store, I am grateful that you are here. Whoever you are, and wherever you have been, I hope you find something that will help you as you continue to ground, grow, and heal. Your journey matters. Your spirituality matters. You matter.

Thank you for stopping by.

In Hope,

Nicole Estefana (she/ella), M.Div, BCC
