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 an artist, some friends got me to lead a counseling-healing group. The group members then 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 learning how to live and create a healthy, meaningful and successful life. For over 30 years, I have worked with clients from all over the world as a transpersonal 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 blocking them, to own their own power, and connect with their hearts and souls. 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.
I have had some great personal teachers, therapists and mentors along the way. I especially want to thank the following: Phyllis Woodbury, Llorraine Neithardt, Dr. Joseph Schlicter, Richard Pousette-Dart, and Betty Cannon. 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 life experience and my willingness to fully open to it and explore it.
I presently live in Boulder, Colorado and love spending time with my daughter, Grace. My hobbies and interests are natural healing, creativity, painting, writing, music, dancing, hiking, time in nature, and anything that inspires me in personal and spiritual growth and development.
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 to become whole, and helping them to fully connect to their heart and soul.
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.
With love and healing,
