"Saying yes, opening up, and loving; these are the keys that will unlock the prison door." -Arnaud Desjardin 

The road to success and healing doesn't always have to be difficult and we're not meant to travel it alone. For well over two decades, I've been blessed to serve as a guide to others. Nothing brings greater joy for me than helping people to become their own best friend and ally, and assisting them to live their life with wellness, joy and a sense of purpose.  We're all in this together. We all matter. We all make a difference. Life is wondrous, mysterious, loving... and we can trust it. It is my passion to help others discover their path that leads to peace, liberation, happiness, and well-being. 

I began holistic healing and spiritual pursuits early in life. Over time, with dedication to my development and the help of excellent teachers, I've gained numerous methods and skills for my toolbox to pull from when needed. I'm confident in knowing there is a solution to every problem and I have experienced that solutions often arise naturally once we are helped to shift our focus away from 'problem' consciousness. 

I have an eclectic list of training and continue to enjoy learning. First and foremost, I'm a student in the ways of the heart, the spirit, integrity, truth and love. Whether through the laying on of hands in a body therapy session, in a group setting, or sitting across from you one-to-one, what I would most want you to know about me is that I'm someone who cares, who is willing to listen, who is willing to talk, who can accept you just the way you are, even if you aren't able to do that for yourself yet. I don't see myself as being above you. I am not your authority. I will help you to see yourself as your own authority, capable of knowing and healing yourself, and as someone truly worthy of your own love and care. I don't walk on water. I'm just a person, like you. I've made choices to rise from the mud of some unpleasant experiences early in life and I allowed myself to be helped by some really amazing people who loved me enough to show me how to stand up and clean myself off so I might find and appreciate the flower of me underneath the junk. It's an ongoing process. Healing, recovery, and awakening is not something that happens in an instant, and we're not going to do it alone. The best help we can get is from those who know the way because they've been down the road and found their way through darkness, into the light.
