When my client pounded her fists onto the couch and said, “Is
my life EVER going to get any less difficult? Why does life
keep throwing curve balls at me and when is it going to stop!”
I understood just how she felt, along with many other clients of
My reply to her was, “Well, life probably won’t stop throwing
curve balls but you do get a choice in how to deal with them.
And since the curve balls won’t stop coming, you might as
well do something to help yourself–or not.”
And this is where I start my work with many of my clients,
whether they come to my office for trauma-related work,
improving relationships or spiritual work or all three; it all
comes down to making the choice to work on yourself and
loving yourself on a deeper level. Peace = Self Love. As we
grow more peaceful, our world around us mirrors that peace
and balance. The biggest step is choosing to do the work, and

My connection to spirit is strong. As a child, I heard and felt
my angels. At the age of nine while laying on a picnic table at
UCSC, I was surrounded by pure light and felt lifted and taken
away to a place of indescribable peace. Later, the woman who
trained me in the psychic arts, said I was taken by the angels.
Since then, I’ve been striving to return to that level of peace.
At the age of 12, I started training in Karate. When I turned 14,
my Sensai pulled me aside with four other students and told us
we were gifted and ready to start a deeper level of spiritual
training, which included breath work, meditation and chanting.
This opened up my world and I realized how much more was
going on in the universe and that we could access it. My 14-
year-old mind thought it was the coolest thing ever.
What I’ve learned from years of practice is that connecting to
spirit will bring us into our soul’s desire-- and that is peace -
which means freedom from the fearful constructs in our minds.
When we connect, we decrease and/or sometimes altogether
lose our fear, we resonate with the peace and before we know
it, we’re breaking old negative patterns, moving energy and
changing our beliefs about the world around us. I will write
about this from 15 years of case studies of what has worked
and what has not. I also teach classes on developing peace and
building spiritual connection and intuition as well as other
classes. Please click on my “services” button for more

And last but certainly not least, I am married with two
children. I love to meditate, take long walks, sometimes surf,
collect sea glass, and eat excellent food with excellent wine
and wonderful friends.
You are a child of the universe,
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.
And amidst the chaos
