After being hospitalized for nearly a month as a young pre-teen, I was so grateful for the nurses and staff caring for me, that I desired to spend my life helping
others. Teenage distractions, and the 60-70's ideals altered those dreams for many years until a spiritual opening experience brought me back to this same inner reality. I love helping people! For me
it is joyful and brings a sense of accomplishment when my gifts and knowledge can help another.
I first worked in retail in high school and then as an undergrad, in manufacturing for about 12 years. I was named in Who's Who for American Women as a manager within the production control department of a steel mill. (Crucible Steel, Syracuse NY).
After a spiritual awakening experience, my guidance and inspiration was to pursue a helping profession. After much inner reflection and meditation, I attended first Syracuse University and then, moving to Boulder Co, received a Masters of Social Work at the University of Denver in 1987. I have since worked as an MSW in health care (hospitals, home care, outpatient clinic, hospice and rehab)with most ages and diagnoses for over 30 years.
I first learned Reiki when my infant daughter was ill with cancer and a heart defect. Once she recovered, I took Level 2 and then became a Reiki Master (now 25 years).
Assisting my daughter, now a young adult, in her journey toward health has been a tremendous teaching and blessing, which I can now share with others.
I served as adjunct faculty in the University of Arizona Program/Center for Integrative Medicine (Dr. Weil), teaching an online module about Reiki and Energy Medicine to medical professionals (MDs, NDs, etc) as well as a mentor for medical students. With other Reiki Masters, I initiated the development of a Reiki Clinic at a local hospital in 1995, one of the first hospitals in the US to officially allow energy healing for their patients.
Now, as an MSW and CPC, I specialize in helping you achieve the personal, health, life and business success you desire. This includes life and whole person health coaching and facilitation for your wellness and improved potential; using ACT for self-healing; spiritual guidance; and energy medicine to remove blocks and enhance your progress. I continue my training in many fields, adding ACT, EFT, Coaching, etc. so I can better facilitate your growth.
Continuing mystical experiences and gifts continue to allow me to share healing with clients. Golden Angel Healing came to me during a harp concert given by Peter Sterling. Heart Light Healing was a vision I first experienced in 1985 before I knew anything about energy medicine.
