I have had more than 30 years of experience offering counsel and guidance through creative healing processes, energy psychology, mask making, drumming, rhythm, dream work, movement and trance work. My life passion is to guide you to:
- Find your soul niche in times of chaos
- Allow the gift of who you are
- Transform conditioned patterns
- Heal old wounds
- Become you
- Access your creative nature and expression
I have had the opportunity to study with teachers who are masters in their fields. They are teachers who delve into archetypal truths, the essence of what is versus a specific flavor. They are all master shape shifters and teachers of conscious trance states, teachers of character and of calling us to our largest self.
These teachers have taught me much about human and other than human nature, of wilding and helping others to find their indigenous self in connection with culture, of the nature of soul , shape shifting, of the deliciousness of our multiplicity and diversity, of the value of shadow and death as well as light and life.
I have been influenced by great story tellers and myth makers such as Michael Meade www.mosaicvoices.org and Clarissa Pincola Estes’. Deep gratitude and thanks to these teachers.
These people as well as poets such as Rumi, Hafiz, Mary Oliver, David Whyte, Rilke, my children, clients, neighbors, lovers, and nature have been my amazing teachers.
I have received a Masters in Clinical Social Work to which I am grateful. I have found learning to be in unexpected places and in following my longing to connect with my Body Song, my unique way of belonging and bring this into the world. I hope to inspire you to embody your song and bring it to the world. You are needed.
