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 decreasing usage of alternative approaches to helping people.
As a result of this, she retired from the mental health field and for years now has been coaching clients, working as a professor for two universities and traveling all over North America training professionals, parents and care takers, in ways to help people by other means first rather than jumping right to 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 their faces while doing so economically, enabling most people to access these services.
As a result of this passionate pursuit, Dr. Dargon offers coaching, guided meditation, sand tray practice, yoga, Breema body work, Kansa (Ayurvedic) wand massage, needleless acupuncture, crystal healing, Reiki & more. She works with individuals of all ages, including children.

Divine Channel for Archangel Holy Amethyst
Laurel Lee is a Divine Channel for Archangel Holy Amethyst . She is a former clinical trauma therapist turned spiritual healer and way-shower. She began channeling Archangel Holy Amethyst in 2020. Divine Alchemy is Holy Amethyst’s superpower; often her high frequency alone helps her clients move from painful resonance with traumas, griefs and ugly beliefs to lighter, more harmonious, divinely aligned ones. Holy Amethyst works intimately with Christ Consciousness, Guan Yin, Archangel Michael and other Heavenly Spiritual Masters to deliver meaningful, profound, and actionable insights. All intuitive messages are delivered in love and for the highest good of all involved.

Following work in the mental health field, Beth has been inspired to learn healing touch (National Healing Touch Professionals Association, Level II practitioner), and massage therapy. She has become a Colorado and Arizona Board Certified Licensed Massage Therapist. She graduated from the Fort Collins, CO, Healing Arts Institute (HAI) with 600 hours of Massage therapy and practical application in February, 2015.

She continued developing skills with Myofascial Release coursework offered by the John Barnes’ Myofascial Release Treatment Center in Sedona, AZ. She currently offers massage and beginning gentle yoga instruction. Beth has developed a passion for empowering others to heal and sustain wellness of the body, mind, and spirit. She has experienced a synergistic effect of these practices – and is excited to help empower people to heal and sustain wellness!

People often ask what inspired the name. 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. It is such a great resource right here in Rimrock, AZ creating so many new and affordable options in the Verde Valley of Arizona, only 20+ minutes outside of Sedona, AZ.
