  • Welcome Home


    Schedule a session to start the process of stepping into your Purpose today!





It’s rare for anyone to get dedicated one-on-one time to explore their goals and Purpose with another human being—no less with a trained professional. Even when you do, the conversation may tend to focus on all of the reasons your heart and soul's desires are not practical. As someone who sees through to your Soul and feels the constant calling to make the world a better place, I create a supportive environment that enables you discover, articulate, and achieve your Purpose—one step at a time. I have trained (and continue to train) with the best teachers out there and bring all of that knowledge, coaching, and healing to YOU. Together, we explore and find the blockages to living your Purpose. I will guide you in moving through and healing them, freeing up your energy to step into your Reason for Being on this planet at this time. 

My approach is unique because you don't just get me. You get a team of angels and guides—mine and yours in each and every session. I am able to tune into your energy to find the blocks that you might not even have known existed. I've discovered that it is positive focus and momentum that genuinely foster change, so I work with you to implement simple changes that are cumulative over time. We build a strong foundation from the ground up (YES, GROUNDING is part of our work!) through changes that are attainable and sustainable.

These seemingly small awarenesses, releases, and changes, create a much larger impact than you could ever imagine. Each session is custom tailored to you, keeping our focus on your ultimate Goal, and working within the circumstances of your own unique situation.

Want to make the world a better place? Here are 5 things you probably forget to do.

As people who feel called to serve the world in a very deep way, we often burn the candle at both ends—alternating between states of superhuman productivity and hiding under a blanket with the blinds drawn to re-charge our batteries. This is often because our Work does not feel like work. We feel accomplished and balanced when we are working toward a goal that makes the world better in some way.

The fact is, that our Work IS work. It requires our focus, and very often a lot of energy movement. We are often working for what we LOVE on top of, or in addition to, a job that we already work full-time. This means we are sometimes already tired, but that we are so devoted and dedicated, that we forget about ourselves and our physical bodies in the process.

The key here is to see ourselves as pitchers full of water. We pour our water into all of the glasses around us—people, work, situations. When we run out of water, we are depleted and we have absolutely nothing to give to others. The goal is to always have water (energy) in your pitcher. Whether your Work is parenting, social justice, channeling, healing, or anything else, the principle is the same.

Here are 5 things to remember to that can help you to remain balanced and give you more energy to accomplish your Work:

1. Eat. Sometimes, when deep in the throes of working on something we are passionate about, we forget to eat. Sometimes, we just feel we "don't have time to eat." Other times, we forget that we are as important as the people and causes we are nurturing and don't make the time to be sure that we have the proper foods prepared and available to us. We get to the point of "I NEED TO EAT NOW" and grab whatever is fast and/or on-hand—EVEN if we are allergic to it!

You will see, maybe in the mirror, that a lot of people out there who you perceive as having a huge life mission either hold extra weight, are out of shape, or look emaciated and drained. Many even alternate between these stages. (Aside: food is not the only reason for this. There are energetic boundaries to be addressed at a later time that come into play here, as well.)

Taking the time to feed ourselves properly does a few things:

• It changes subtle lack-mentality that sabotages us. Saying that we don't have enough time or that there are not enough hours in a day for what we need to accomplish keeps us living in the illusion of lack.

• By fueling ourselves with the proper foods—as fresh and seasonal as possible—we create the most potential energy for our bodies to function and remain healthy.


2. Sleep. Many times, we ignore the signs that our bodies are tired and need to rest. (This is especially common in those of us who have spent a lot of time working in an office environment.) Forcing ourselves to continue working when our bodies say otherwise is actually a form of violence against the self. At the very least, it makes us less productive and we can easily spend an hour or two on something that should only have taken 10 minutes.

Getting a full night's sleep strengthens out immune system, allows the nervous system to re-set itself properly, and helps mood. Plus, resting when we need to rest allows us to come back to our Work with sharper focus and be much more productive.

3. Breathe. This is normally the first thing to go out the window when we are being challenged or are working on something that requires our undivided attention and focus. Simply put, our bodies need oxygen to function—each cell, organ, and neuron. When we are constantly breathing in a shallow way, we are depriving ourselves of a basic nutrient that we need to function properly. Just taking pause and breathing a couple of deep breaths is enough to calm the nervous system and re-focus the mind.

What I've learned is that if I am not breathing properly, I am exerting more of my own will and energy, instead of allowing the Guidance to flow to and through me.

4. Move. Many of us are dawn to spiritual practices (like kundalini yoga and meditation) over other kinds of practices and would rather invest time there. This is great, and these things may be necessary to your growth and development, but they often involve long periods of sitting or being still. The truth is, we are all in a physical body, and one of the things the physical body needs to function properly is movement. For this reason, it is important to balance these periods of sitting with periods of movement—whatever that looks like for you.

Moving the physical body is also a quick way to get energy moving. If you feel resistance to moving, take it to meditation and ask yourself, "Where is it that I am resisting change in my life?" and you will very likely unblock yourself!

5. Ground. It seems that we highly sensitive people spend a LOT of time disconnected from our bodies.

There are many reasons why we become ungrounded, but the hard part is making sure that we take the time to ground again. We can only really be strongly rooted in what we are here to do if we have both feet firmly on mother earth. This grounded energy is what needs to be harnessed for manifestation and it is the missing ingredient for so many of us.

As we feel called to go out and help the world, it is easy for us to lose sight of ourselves and what we need in and from it. As highly spiritual people, we are used to going "upward" for guidance and not grounding downward into the earth, but this is what is necessary in order to manifest our big plans and dreams in this reality. As we practice groundedness, we will naturally become more in-tune with our bodies and hear what they are asking for. Taking good care ourselves in the physical reality ensures that we will have the strength and energy to go forth and carry out the Work we know we are called to do, as well as all of the other things that require our time and attention.

How Do We Move on When Loss Has Stopped the World?

Originally posted on March 17, 2014

No amount of spiritual work can ever prepare you for losing those that you hold most dear. You can know intellectually that everything is ok, but that doesn't mean that it is not excruciatingly painful.

We mourn at times of death for many reasons, often the biggest one is that we cannot imagine moving forward without this person being around. The world feels like it has stopped turning,and seeing anyone going about their daily business can often be painful and confusing. How can you be doing that [insert mundane task here] when the world as we know it has changed?

Sometimes we mourn from the place of release. Often when a loved one dies, this moment has been preceded by a long stretch of failing health and increased time spent caring for this person. As awful as it feels to admit (and part of why we feel guilt), we might feel relief. This can be for any of a number of reasons, some of the biggest being relief that this person is no longer suffering, relief that we can finally express the anger/sadness/fear/confusion/weakness that we had been hiding from everyone else for so long while trying to be strong and "just get through this".

And sometimes, just sometimes, we mourn from a place of gratitude. Enough said.

Recently, my cat died. (I know to non-animal lovers this could sound a little crazy, so if that is the case, just skip a bit and resume reading when you see the bolded number 1.) He had been there for me, unconditionally, for the past 18 years. He was always gave me a ceremonial greeting and was elated that I was there, even when no one else was. He was there to love me up when no one else wanted to cuddle and would sit and listen to me for hours, purring, if I were in the mood to pontificate.

In the days before Sebastian's death, people would ask how I was. I would always reply, "broken," though I can't be sure if I ever said this out loud. Despite knowing what the "other side" is like, having studied non-attachment for lifetimes, and knowing that his transition would be peaceful and lovely, it was still the hardest time of my life. For a little while, I felt I could not be certain that it was the right time. Then, when it was obvious, I felt that I was losing a part of myself and that I would never be whole again. 

I don't think it is fair that often we are responsible for the death of our animals. It brings with it layers of responsibility for things that we might not know anything about. I was angry. This was God's job and when I needed God S/He took the day off.  

Here are some tools that I've learned throughout my life that have really helped me through this process. I want to share them with you, so that you will have them when needed.

No idea where to begin? Start here:

1. Feel the emotions. Allow the emotions to come up and be expressed. Yell at God if you need to, trust me, (S)he can take it. Weep openly in the middle of the street. Whatever it takes, let them flow through you and allow them to go. You don't need to hold onto them. 

2. Release the guilt. Often, after a loved one dies, we feel tremendous guilt that we should have said, done, or tried to do more. Sometimes, we realize that we had a day or a string of days that wasn't quite as painful as we thought it would be. Suddenly we might feel some guilt for not missing them or stating in mourning as much or as long as we should. I am here to tell you that this is nonsense. 

Time heals all wounds. As much as these trite sayings can infuriate us when we are in the midst of a crisis, they are all true.  Each day will get a little easier. 

3. Know that you will have setbacks. You wake up one day and are fine. In fact, you have been fine for a while now. Suddenly, you see someone wearing the brand of socks that your loved one always wore, or there is a dog that looks just the way your dog did. Your brain might now even register this stimulus on a conscious level, but suddenly the emotional floodgates are opened and you are crying your eyes. out. Return to #1 and allow the emotions to flow through you and out so you don't get stuck in them or stuff them down.

4. Be open to communication. Watch for signs. Very often you will get signs from the other side that are your loved one's way of letting you know that everything is ok. Sometimes, they happen immediately after a death, but we are too busy morning to be able to pay attention to them. Don't expect them to look a certain way, either. Be open to allowing communication to take the shape that it needs to take. 

These are just a few ways that you can emotionally breathe through the loss of a loved one. It never gets easier, but knowing and accepting that life will go on helps us to keep putting one foot in front of the other. My heart goes out to all of you who have recently experienced loss. It seems that a great many beautiful souls have left the planet so far this year. Know that you are in my thoughts and in my heart.

These steps work for losses of all kinds—relationship break ups, divorces, employment. Use the tools provided as-needed. 

Please, if you are stuck in depression or are having a really hard time coping with loss seek the support of a professional. We are not meant to walk through any of this alone.
