My Story

I think of myself as a wounded healer.  My dad died of brain cancer when I was ten years old. He was my nurturing parent: the person who taught me to paint and the loved one that gave me baths and tickled me.

After his death, I was told not to grieve but to look forward. I felt abandoned, alone, lost and bereft. Like other children with similar traumas, I adopted a story of pain, shame, suffering, and worthlessness that negatively influenced my self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-worth.

In 1993, I started studying energy healing, spirituality, and psychology.  I have studied with Reverend Rosalyn L. Bruyere and Master Ken Weintrub of the Healing Light Center Church (HLCC).  At HLCC, I have studied theology, healing arts, and the sacred mysteries.  In 2023, I got ordained as Reverend and became a minister of prayer and healing.

In addition, I earned my Master of Fine Arts in Interdisciplinary Art, combining the fields of psychology, spirituality, and visual art to innovate a transformative healing art modality that reconnects body and spirit, in order to heal the existential pain that comes from feeling disconnected from Spirit.

For the past 20 years, I have developing an effective system of attuning to the rhythms of the Sun and Moon for spiritual growth, called Soul Gardening. I now share that work through multiple platforms-- classes, workshops, ceremonies, coaching, and 1-1 sessions.

My goal is to help you discover your Soul’s purpose and direction to support you to take action towards creating juicy joy, abundance, and deep fulfillment in your life.

I am a spirtual leader, teacher, mystic, and healer. I share my spiritual gifts through teaching, healing, writing, ceremony, prayer, and mediumship.
