When I was 7 years old I asked my mom if she wanted to know what I was going to be when I grew up. She wrote my answer in her journal: “I am going to help heal humanity.” At 13 years old I remember her yelling at me when I was on the phone: “Get to the dinner table now! You can’t help the whole neighborhood!” I remember kids in high school telling me how much I helped them resolve issues they were having. I remember at 19 years old receiving letters from different people I randomly met while traveling for a few months in Europe, who said their lives were transformed by meeting me. Later at 24 years old when I was living the life of a writer and artist, some friends got me to lead a counseling-healing group. They were so impressed they began to send me clients. At first I resisted, then I fell in love with counseling. This event caused me to become conscious of the natural gift I was born with. Ever since, this has been my life, work and passion.
My entire life has been dedicated to health and healing; personal, mental and spiritual growth. For over 30 years, I have worked with clients from all over the world as a psychotherapist, counselor, naturopathic health consultant, healer, personal and spiritual growth coach. The core of my practice is facilitating transformation and healing. I help people become free of what is causing them anxiety, stress and suffering. I help people own their own power and self-confidence; and connect with their hearts and inner gifts. I teach people how to create and live lives that will make them truly happy. After years of struggling with my own past trauma, PTSD and severe anxiety disorders, I ﬁnd great joy seeing my clients heal and thrive.
On my own journey, I have had some great personal teachers, therapists and mentors. I especially want to thank the following: Phyllis Woodbury, Llorraine Neithardt, Dr. Joseph Schlicter, Richard Pousette-Dart, Betty Cannon and Jaylynne Chase-Jacobson. I am also very grateful to all the other teachers, writers, therapists, friends and healers who supported my growth and healing. Most importantly, my greatest teacher has been my own life experience and my willingness to fully open to it and explore it.
I presently live in Boulder, Colorado. I love spending time with friends and family and my daughter Grace. My hobbies and interests are natural healing, creativity, art, writing, music, dancing, hiking, time in nature, and anything that inspires personal and spiritual growth.
Within everyone is pure love, some form of genius and unrealized gifts. Everyone deserves to experience deep love, happiness and success; it is far easier and possible than most people think or have been taught. My life passion is counseling, coaching and facilitating people’s processes to become whole and free. I love helping people of all ages to fully connect to their heart and highest potential.
I have never known a problem too big or too small to ﬁnd a solution or healing for. I am determined to help anyone who wants to achieve the love and happiness they seek. I have experienced many miracles in my life and in the lives of my clients. It is my greatest desire to help anyone that wants to awaken to the miracle they were meant to live and experience.
With love and healing,
