How Does Your Work Enable You to Connect to and Fulfill Your Life Purpose/Passion?

My passion is helping others feel empowered to express their authentic selves in everything they do. I find tremendous joy when I see someone find that “aha!” moment. I know the feeling of being stuck in life and I have explored multiple ways to find freedom. It is my mission to guide others to find a similar freedom for themselves.

Who Is Your Ideal Client and Why?

My ideal client is women, ages 30-70 who are: going through a transition and unsure what to do next, want to feel more joy in their life, want to experience deeper relationships with themselves and others, are looking for a sense of belonging and connection.

What Unique Offerings Do You Provide?

I use many tools to help my clients. I am a certified Spiritual Sexual Awakening and Healing practitioner, which helps men and women to release trauma that has been held in the body. I teach about Shamanic journeys and perform soul retrievals. I am an experienced intuitive facilitator of healing and have many more tools in my toolbox, including mediumship and card readings. I will use whichever ones are needed for my clients on any given day.

Who Was Your Role Model Growing Up? How Did That Person’s Actions Impact You?

My greatest role model would be my mom. She was a single mom and has always stayed solution focused in any crisis. By the time she was 25 years old, she was married and divorced with 3 young children. She maintained a 3 bedroom house with a huge yard, worked long hours and always made us feel loved and cared for. She might not have always felt like she knew what she was doing, but she sure looked like it. Though we differ in many ways, I learned how to embrace my inner strength from my mom.

Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?

Western Massachusetts (where my mom lives on 300 acres of farmland)

I love big artsy earrings. In addition to that, there is a pretty large craft room in my house, filled with paints, canvases, 2 sewing machines, bins of fabric, glue, markers, and so much more. I love creating…anything.

Last Memorable Book You Read and Why?

Tantra Goddess: A Memoir of Sexual Awakening, by Caroline Muir- While reading about Caroline’s life and her experiences with self exploration, I found myself give myself greater permission to explore different parts of me. It made me rethink what kind of romantic partnership I might want (or not want). Having met Caroline in person, I could feel her zest for life that came from a long life of trauma and recovery of self.

Favorite Movie and Why?

Under the Tuscan Sun – There was a time I feared stepping out on my own to run a business. This movie is a great example that anything is possible, but you have to try. And though it might not always be easy, following your passion is worth every bit of struggle. I am no longer trapped by fear.

“Go to” Quote or Mantra that Grounds You?

“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anais Nin. I have worked for many years with women in recovery from addiction and sex trafficking. My specialty is helping women recover from trauma. And in the world of recovery, a lot of people say “when the pain is great enough, they will return.” I can say this is true not only from the people I work with, but from my own life experiences.

Accomplishment Are You Most Proud of?

Raising 2 empowered young women (ages 22 ands 15) who still come to me for advice, friendship, comfort and snuggles. Many people have witnessed the relationship the 3 of us have and call it magical. I would agree.

Favorite Place to Escape and Refuel?

My absolute most amazing favorite place to escape and refuel is Lake Cocchichuate in Natick MA. I first tried Paddle Boarding after getting divorced.

No matter what is going on in my life the lake can wash it away!
