Dr. Christine Dargon
Owner, Coach, Yoga Instructor, Ztyo Scan Analyst, Meditation Guide, Reiki II practitioner,
Breema Body-work Student and Empath
Dr. Christine Dargon received her doctoral degree in counseling psychology in 1999. After spending over 20 years working in the mental health field, she was frustrated with the increasing use of medications and the lessening or recommending alternative approaches to helping people first. The pharmaceutical industry has a tight hold on society and people, including children are often easily given prescriptions for medications many of which we do not know the long term effects or the effects of developing children.
As a result of this and other frustrations, she disconnected from the mental health field and for years now has been coaching/counseling clients, working as a professor for two universities and traveling all over North America training professionals, parents and care takers ways to help people by other means first rather than jumping right to medication. Often issues can be improved without medication.
This is the foundation for Emerald Waves. The goal is to provide affordable services to help people improve their lives, feel better, reduce stress and even just put a smile on your face. The goal is also to do so economically enabling most people to access these services rather than the few.
As a result of this passionate pursuit, Dr. Dargon offers coaching/counseling (certified life, career etc coach), guided meditation, sand tray practicing, yoga (certified yoga instructor), Breema body work (in the process of obtaining certification), Kansa (Ayurvedic) wand massage, needleless acupuncture, Crystal Healing and uses such techniques with children as well.
Last fall I had been talking to a friend about my frustrations and her extensive work in the area of utilizing essential oils for medical purposes. We talked about how great it would be to open a center, outside of Sedona, to offer such opportunities to the community.
The end of November 2017, a friend informed me that a space on the main street in town was up for rent. I contacted some friends and everything started to fall into place. Within 28 hours the lease was signed and Emerald Waves Began.
People often ask where the name came from or what inspired it. Growing up, my family traveled every year to a place called Emerald Isle, NC. As I got older I often went 2, 3 and even 4 times a year to this beautiful serene spot. This was my happily place. Sitting on the beach and listening to the waves could bring me such peace but also stir up emotions that were longing to be addressed. When I realized this, and the fact that Emeralds have healing properties and waves have many significant meanings, the name just came together.
So welcome to Emerald Waves. This is my happy place in AZ and I hope that it will become yours as well.

QiGong Instructor, Acutonics
Astrologer, Ceremony Facilitator, Artist
Angela has studied esoteric philosophies for over 20 years and weaves this ancient wisdom into her life, into her approach to astrology, healing work, ceremony design, and into her artwork. She seeks to heal the world through creative and mystical expressions. Each modality of her work encompasses an underlying theme of tapping into deeper levels of consciousness and to other worlds. She channels wisdom based on the cosmic-patterns and oracles to empower her clients to find how to thrive. Her artwork is infused with sacred and ancient imagery designed to subtly connect people to realms that offer this healing light. Despite pursuing art and music passionately until college, she took the ‘traditional’ routes to education and careers in science and accounting. To survive her soul-detours, Angela buoyed herself in studies and practices of Taoism, metaphysics, yoga, meditation, ancient cultures and ultimately to deeper levels of astrology. She has a passion for the natural world and indigenous earth-based cultures and traditions and enjoys living in Northern Arizona surrounded by that energy.
She has a masters education in ecology (science) and is a retired California CPA (accounting). Angela’s sacred-geometry-symbolism-oriented artwork sells globally and at Emerald Waves. She has studied and practiced astrology for many years with emphasis in evolutionary and shamanic forms. She is working on an advanced certification in evolutionary astrology with world-renowned Maurice Fernandez.
She is also Reiki III certified and is an energy healer with geobiology training.
Angela offers soul-path well-being astrological readings on topics including your birth blue-print and soul direction, how to navigate the current cosmic-weather, how to tap into empowerment rituals linked to the stars, synastry with a significant other and even how to tap into career development. She does dream analysis and energy healing work (Reiki, crystals and copper-gold wrapped tools). She is developing workshops and courses designed to give all levels of experience a new layer on astrology from a well-being perspective.

Aloha! Niccole is so happy to be a part of this little family! She grew up here in Rimrock/Lake Montezuma after her family moved from Hawaii in 1991. Niccole now lives in the Village of Oak Creek with her husband of 11 years and their 2 sons. She began dance classes at the age of 7 and her love for it grew over her lifetime. At age 10, Niccole began Hawaiian and Polynesian dancing with a local Halau. Her troupe performed all over the Verde Valley, Flagstaff and Phoenix. In 2011, Niccole began her Zumba journey. It took her almost a year to get the courage up to become a licensed instructor. She had a lot of support and people who believed in her, so she went for it! She is so glad she made that jump because she has met so many amazing people and had so many wonderful experiences. Niccole has been teaching Zumba for 6 years and she is so excited to see what the future holds. Let’s party!!!
