Molly Downey

PA-C – Energy Practitioner and Intuitive

Molly has been working in modern medicine as a physician assistant since 2014. Over the past decade, she has moved from primary rural practice to specialty work involving sleep and addiction medicine. Her experience working with underserved populations was both rewarding and difficult. Although grateful for this experience, she began to feel limited in her capacity to truly help patients through the modern medical system.

Simultaneously, Molly began to experience intuitive information during patient visits. She would feel, hear, or see information from the multi-sensory universe. This inspired her to learn more about this connection and take multiple courses to hone this incredible skill. After utilizing energy healing to cure herself of a chronic illness that was “incurable” by modern medical standards, she was inspired to offer this healing modality to patients.

She practiced energy healing for several years before she officially opened Etheric Healing in 2022. This practice provides energy healing sessions to patients combined with medical intuition and psychic connection. It is her absolute joy to guide patients on a journey of healing and connection to the universe. Molly continues to practice as a physician assistant serving addiction, sleep, and mental health patients. She also works through Etheric Healing online or in-person.

Stephanie Johnson

Administrative Assistant and Patient Care Coordinator

Stephanie has lived in Boise since she was young and has focused her time on raising her kids as a stay-at-home mom and worked off and on doing direct sales and lashes. When Stephanie’s youngest daughter started high school, she wondered what was next for her as being at home was no longer as rewarding. 

Nykol posted a job opening for BKC to answer the phones and do consultations from home in January 2022, and Stephanie jumped at the chance. In August 2022, Stephanie approached Nykol about working more hands-on in the clinic, and she quickly became the admin for BKC. 

She absolutely loves the people she gets to work with, both staff and patients, and has come to love ketamine therapy, as she’s seen what a difference it has made in her own kids’ lives.
