I am a professional psychic, licensed psychotherapist, spiritual teacher, believer in the healing forces of nature, an alchemist, adventurer, witty writer, and a hopeless fan of House Hunters International. I use my gift of reading souls to help entrepreneurs and professionals break through the invisible barriers that are keeping them stuck, unhappy, and unfulfilled.
On a lighter side, I use my travel and everyday life experiences to share the wisdom and soul lessons behind the shit that happens while encouraging people to follow their spirit to live a life of joy and abundance. I believe that life is way too short to be stuck in fear, dissatisfaction, and everyone else’s “should’s”!
By living according to who I am at soul-level, and having the courage to release the baggage that no longer serves me, I have created amazing personal results that have led to better physical health, greater wealth, and the peace and intimacy I wanted in a romantic relationship.
I use a combo of the Akashic Records, mindset work, and EFT (Tapping) to help people work through their personal blocks by giving clarity as to their divine purpose and gifts, as well as uncovering both present AND past-life issues that are keeping them stuck in a cycle of self-sabotage.
My passion lies in using life and humor to motivate and inspire others to understand and connect to their spirit for lasting confidence, abundance, and joy. Want this too? Apply for a complementary call with me.
How did a "proper" psychotherapist get into reading souls?
It all started as a quest to heal my body.
I was physically sick, courtesy of the standard American diet and relying on pills for pretty much everything from acne to birth control to every time I got the cooties. So my journey really started with the desire to ditch the meds, and reverse symptoms of illness in my body.
With the birth of the Internet, I was able to connect with functional medicine experts, properly research the information I needed to fully understand what was going on, and become empowered to do something about it.
I learned the tools that would help get my physical body on board, because come to find out, your primitive brain will sabotage the shit out you. Who knew? Little did I realize that physical healing would lead me down a path to an emotional and spiritual overhaul.
I took charge of my own healing, changing my diet and lifestyle drastically. I took charge of my own happiness, and started to own and rewrite the stories I created about myself, my emotions, and my choices. It was no longer acceptable to me to feel unfulfilled in my work, and live according to the expectations of others.
Through divine inter-workings, I met the coaches and teachers I needed to help me step into my gifts while making NEW choices that were in alignment with my soul's nature.
Learning who I was at soul level was a complete GAME-CHANGER. I took the time to declutter and ditch both present and past life patterns that were no longer serving me. I worked (and continue to work - it's an ongoing journey) on self-forgiveness.
I then closed my traditional therapy practice and opened an intuitive coaching and consulting business so I could help my clients experience (and in a much quicker fashion) the amazing transformation that results from this kind of work.
This didn't happen for me overnight. And I had to TAKE ACTION.
Scary? Yes! Worth it? Hell ya!
I am now more confident in my skills and abilities than ever, and have found joy in both my business and personal life.
My Life Experiences and Random Tid-Bits (if you are still interested)
- I really tried to be a school teacher. But the snotty noses of the small kids grossed me out... and the attitudes of the older kids - OMG! Wrong environment, definitely! Come to think of it, I would have been a much more effective teacher if I had the counseling degree before the teaching degree.
- I LOVED working with teenagers in my former therapy practice, and was a miracle worker (I say that humbly) with the young adults who had visual and auditory hallucinations. I was blessed by the Universe to be skilled at helping kids get rid of emotional baggage so they don't have to hear voices or see things anymore. Secretly, I think is was that they just loved all my crystals, Oracle/Tarot cards, and "airy-fairy" tools.
- As a kid I sailed from Miami to the Abacos (Bahamas) with my folks for 3 weeks. One day we had really rough weather and water. Dad was navigating with a broken arm. Mom was throwing up from being sea-sick. I was curled in the corner reading a book. Apparently, I was a pretty stress-free kid.
- I was in the FSU Flying High Circus in college. Yes, really. I did an ariel routine and a ground act called "Bike for 5". This was initially an attempt to escape the traditional PE class, and then I discovered how way cool it was.
- I visited what was formerly Yugoslavia when I was in the 7th grade. It was technically a ski trip, but turned out to be quite the adventure! I feel so honored to have experienced the energy there, as sadly, many of the historic sites are no longer.
- I toured Europe in college - Spain, France, Holland, Italy, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland with friends. We slept on the trains and in cheap hostels or B&Bs. I made the group get a real hotel room for one of our stops after the hostel sign said, "please leave your weapons outside". The Sistine Chapel? Under renovation, covered in boards. WTF.
- The husband and I attended a seminar in London, had to sleep in separate rooms in a college dorm, and were startled awake at 2am to the fire alarm after a homeless person set fire in a trash can under the building to keep warm. Not sure whether I was to be grateful to have a warm place to sleep that night, albeit interrupted, or irritated to be evacuated and standing in the street at O-Dark-30 in my PJs.
- The husband and I worked in a Native Alaskan Eskimo village, in the Lower Yukon for 2 years. There were no roads, no restaurants, no movie theaters, no alcohol allowed (a dry village), and no cars. You were dropped off in a bush plane, in the middle of nowhere, where Alaskan tourists never go.
- Can you tell I love to travel yet? Dubai, Machu Picchu, Santorini... and many more places to come!
- I experienced the difficulty of divorce, yet it was the best thing that happened to me as it taught me independence, that playing the victim is an unhelpful coping technique, and that I am 100% responsible for my choices.
- I learned that there is a BIG difference between my soul-self speaking, and my fear-driven ego. What a difference this has made in how I approach life!
- Finally (if you aren't totally bored yet), my primary archetype is an Alchemist, my secondary, an Explorer. Go figure.
