'AS A YOUNG PERSON, I NEVER RECOGNIZED MY GIFT OF DEEP LISTENING; I THOUGHT I SIMPLY ENJOYED BEING AROUND PEOPLE AND HEARING THEIR STORIES - BEING THERE AS SOMEONE TO TALK AND SHARE WITH.'
I was named to honor my Irish grandmother who lived in New York City, and raised to a family centered around commitment and acceptance. I've always recognized my love for creating calm, friendly, empowering spaces where others feel safe to explore their stories held in the deepest parts of themselves.
Later in life, I began pouring myself into my gifts. It wasn't long before I found that I was more than just the 'good friend,' the hungry explorer and the nature lover. I am a highly sensitive person (HSP), a deep listener and a guide. I easily tune into the energy of others. I allowed my intuition to lead more and more - and life unfolded in surprising and dream-come-true ways.
Along the way, I studied with The Haden Institute, Martha Beck, and the Dream Tending Program. Today, through private and group services my practice is strengthened by collaborations with Sharon Blackie's Hagitude Program as well as the online Sensitive Empowerment Community for highly sensitive persons. My practice has a global reach, helping people around the world achieve a beautiful and fulfilling connection with their truth.
I am an explorer and seeker; someone who loves using my intuition as an inner wisdom wayfinder, coach, dreamworker and story doula.
My appetite for answers and connection to this big, mystical world led me to study Religious Studies, English, and Microbiology before earning a Masters degree from Fordham University.
I then went on to raise four wonderful children and enjoyed a career in advancement for various cultural arts institutions which supported the education and exploration of life for patrons from all around the world. In 2015, when I found myself at the Smithsonian, I thought I'd reached the height of my professional fulfillment.
But something inside of me knew better, and it called out to me. I began examining parts of my being and spirit that I had always assumed were common traits, and learned that my superpower is deep listening.
Your initial complimentary session will help set the course for our time together. We'll discuss where you are and where you're hoping to go. I'll give some background on how I conduct the sessions. Then off we go.
The experience is very much like a soul's homecoming. I believe your inner ground is sacred. It's unique and special to you. I love listening to stories and I'm very interested in hearing yours. What I do best is deep listen as you connect to your thoughts and dreams. Along the way we'll discover what's holding you back and work on dissolving those unhelpful beliefs.
Your body is a critical compass giving messages and directions about next steps. Equally important are your dreams - both night time and waking dreams. We have the opportunity to explore each as we talk about your story.
It's all about you as we see the patterns and symbols that emerge. Are you interested in dreaming of and creating the possibilities in your life that may have taken a back seat?
