Heart Centered Psycho-Spiritual Approach
After studying and practicing Western psychology for many years, I could see that a new approach was needed. That’s when I started developing this approach incorporating the wisdom of ancient eastern, European and native traditions. Traditional psychology loves to analyze the mind and the thoughts it generates. This new (old) approach drops down into the heart and deeper, the soul, to tend to what is really going inside first. From that place of connection, lasting adjustments bring the system (mental, emotional, physical, familial) into balance and harmony resulting in on-going personal and spiritual growth.
Create Your Own Ceremony
Ceremonies can be really helpful and meaningful during times of joy and sadness, life changes, health concerns, loss or celebration. They are also a very powerful way to transform the old mental, emotional, physical and familial patterns. That’s why I am introducing a new service to help you create your own ceremony with the intention of bringing the individual, family or community into balance. Old habits and conflicts do indeed have a very tight grip on us, and so with ceremony we call out to the forces of the universe, which I like to call The All, to aid in our quest for a new, more authentic way of being.
Let me help you design and create a custom-made ceremony that will have meaning for you, your health and wellbeing, and your significant others for many years to come. Let me show you the way ~ YOUR way!
Deep Meditation: I am also a Certified Professional Yoga Nidra teacher. Yoga Nidra means yogic sleep. It is a guided relaxation practice that is designed to take you into the innermost, self-balancing, self-healing state of the Zero Stress Zone. Yoga Nidra utilizes a variety of breathing and deep relaxation techniques to reactivate the tranquilizing power of the parasympathetic nervous system. It effectively reverses the effects of stress, and the body can start healing itself and release blockages and trapped energy.
Artist’s Statement: I use my art to illustrate, document and explore my soul’s journey this lifetime. Art making has become a daily practice for me much like meditation. Using a spontaneous, intuitive style, I attempt to capture whatever is “up” for me on any particular day. I have exhibited throughout the Bay Area, and I teach this method of experiencing yourself through art at on-going process painting workshops at the Sanchez Art Center in Pacifica, CA.

“A powerful, touching and yes, uplifting story. The author brings magic and even a little humor to what is often a dark and heavy reality. I was opened to a new level of healing which is always available to us, if we are willing to notice it.” Gillian B.
“I loved this book about raw human emotions and a mother’s fear and constant worry. She nailed it on the head and didn’t try to make the mother a heroine. She made her a real mother with real emotions.” Dina A. Purchase Here
