If you’re a woman who has experienced trauma, abuse, neglect, family dysfunction, abandonment, betrayal or mother loss, I’m certain that your nervous system and energy body are holding patterns that keep you feeling anxious, depressed, fearful, self-critical, ashamed and guilty. This is likely causing issues in one or more areas: your personal life, your relationships, your health, your finances or your career. Even though you want to make positive changes you find yourself stuck in old patterns and self-sabotage.
I want you to know that this is very common and that you are NOT crazy, unlovable or broken beyond repair; you are NOT your story, your feelings or your thoughts; you are NOT doomed to a life of anxiety, fear, shame and self-criticism; and you CAN feel different and create a different life.
Through my non-judgmental, compassionate approach and full support, my clients experience peace and healing that they have not found through traditional therapy, self-help, alternative healing modalities or medication. I create a safe container where women can release years of anxiety, shame, guilt, fear, anger, self-criticism and self-sabotage.
My own experience of losing my parents when I was quite young, marriage, raising children and then making the difficult decision to leave my 30 year marriage and begin life on my own at 52 also provides me with rich personal experience to draw on to support other women through the changes that occur in all women’s lives.

Truthfully, I can’t imagine doing anything other than helping women heal their deepest emotional wounds and awaken to their divine nature so that they can give birth to the highest expression of their authentic, essential Self. I look forward to taking this sacred journey with you!
My area of expertise is to recognize and point out the patterns present throughout a client’s life, family generations and perhaps even past lives and help the client to see how those patterns have contributed to current problems. Then we work energetically to remove the cellular programming and create new neural pathways with healthy, positive and supportive beliefs and thought patterns. I use different forms of energy healing, but my favorite “go-to” modality is Emotional Freedom Technique, also known as “tapping”.
My spiritual, but not religious, approach allows me to help clients access a higher level of viewing and interpreting their life experiences, which allows for more compassion, forgiveness and peace.
My 25+ years of experience as a psychotherapist has given me a strong foundation to understand the human brain and the human psyche that many other coaches and healers don’t have. I’ve worked in the areas of sexual assault, domestic violence, child abuse and other kinds of trauma, so I’m used to handling very complex and challenging situations. As an energy worker and an ordained minister, committed to helping women heal their deepest wounds, I provide a safe and sacred container for you to do the deep work necessary for profound healing. I also understand the power of the collective consciousness on each individual and how we all carry this energy in our DNA and how to use brain science and energy techniques to clear the imprints that we all carry.
Perhaps most important is that I’ve walked this path of healing, awakening and transformation myself for the past 25 years. I’ve done, and continue to do, what I invite and encourage my clients and students to do. I walk my talk and truly understand the courage and commitment it takes to really do this work. I will have your back and hold you, your heart and your experience with the sacred trust it deserves.

The “presenting problem” may be related to relationships, finances, career, health, negative thinking, anxiety or life balance. Almost always, once we start working together, older and deeper patterns which are part of the subconscious programming are uncovered. This is where the real work gets done.
With my integrated approach, and your willingness to dive in, you will experience a release from the subconscious patterning of your past, sometimes handed down through generations in your family or past lives. This release allows you to stop re-acting (acting over again) from this programming, which has kept you stuck in unhealthy, unsupportive and unfulfilling ways of being in your life.
You will learn tools and techniques that will serve you your whole life. You’ll come to understand the principles for living an abundant, inspired and joyful life. My clients have overcome lifelong fears, such as fear of spiders, flying, playing piano in public, coming out of the house (yes, she hadn’t been out for 6 months when she called me), crossing bridges, public speaking and driving, that were seriously hampering their quality of life.
Other have uncovered and released major limiting beliefs about not being good enough, not being deserving, only having value if they were doing what others wanted, money being the root of all evil or believing that all sex was bad. Once they let these beliefs go, they created more money in their business, completed school and professional training programs, opened their own business, attracted healthy partners, left unfulfilling jobs or relationships, stopped feeling anxious and found inner peace.
They finally experienced that “thing” that had been eluding them for much of their lives. When you really embrace and use these tools everything becomes possible!
