Today I am living a joy-filled life, helping women experience personal transformation in everything from the mundane to the mystical, and enjoy a life of confidence, connection, and purpose.

And, like most women, the path from Maiden to Mother to Matriarch has taken many unexpected twists and turns.

My career began as a very practical, left-brained, Mechanical Engineer in 1982. The field was less than 1% women at the time. 

A few years later, the birth of my first child caused my heart to open wide. Every time I looked at this tiny, beautiful boy, the love within me expanded. This heart opening inspired me to follow an inner call to explore Great Mystery through religion, esoteric mystery schools, and other spiritual paths.

I let go of my engineering gig and began to work with individuals seeking personal transformation. I increasingly noticed the relationship between mental “breakdown” and spiritual “breakthrough.” To understand this phenomenon more deeply, I received training in shamanism and psychology. And as I learned, I shared this knowledge with others.

Then, in 2017, I experienced the biggest challenge of my life: the end of my 36-year marriage. I felt shocked, overwhelmed, and heartbroken. It wasn’t easy, but by applying the wide variety of skills I’d learned over the years, as well as seeking wise and loving support, I was able to go from grieving and overwhelmed to confident, connected, and free.

Out of that crisis, I was able to Re-Create my life in a way that is filled with more creativity, love, and joy than ever before. And, my ability to support women at a turning point deepened.

Over the past 30 years, I have offered Spiritual Guidance, Hypnotherapy, Shamanic Breathwork, and Women’s Circles.

My passion continues to be supporting women to Re-Create their lives, follow their soul’s calling, and live their purpose with more confidence, connection, and joy.
