Owner | Reiki Master | Energy Enthusiast

Welcome to Modern Alchemy!

Residing in Pittsburgh, PA, I am the mother of Nina and Syrus, and the eldest sibling of four. I've obtained a Bachelor degree in Psychology from Point Park University. I have 16 years experience working in Corporate America as an Executive Assistant, Event Planner, Bartender, name it. I also have a thing for black cats and crystals.

Why MAC?

Modern (adjective): Relating to the present or recent times as opposed to the remote past. (noun): A person who advocates or practices a departure from traditional styles or values.


Alchemy (noun): The medieval forerunner of chemistry, based on the supposed transformation of matter. A seemingly magical process of transformation, creation, or a combination.

Creative (adjective): Relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work. Or, (of a person) having good imagination or original ideas.

*Oxford English Dictionary at

I created MAC with the intent to live through purpose and authenticity, by sharing my gifts of healing and creativity.


I am an intuitive empath by nature, and I realized this at a very young age. I have come to embrace my intuition by practicing meditation, studying, traveling to sacred places and doing much inner-work. By learning to channel universal life energy (Reiki), I have gained the ability to combine my natural gifts and knowledge/experiences with science to create a healing experience at House of Crystals. Working through the daily 9-5 has never satisfied my need to utilize these abilities, so I decided to take matters into my own hands, and (literally) share them with you!

I believe in the power of self-transformation and manifestation. Transmutation and alchemy. Love and unlimited possibilities. I understand that we all hold the power within ourselves to heal ourselves, sometimes activated with a little guidance. Life is a gift that we are all experiencing through the collective consciousness, that which needs healing. I am here to assist us in getting there through finding our balance.

Thank you for taking the time to visit Modern Alchemy, and learn a bit about me and my passion for healing. I look forward to working with you!

With love and gratitude,

Katriona Ablaiza Nardini
