'WE ALL HAVE A WILD TALE TO TELL, AND AS A DEEP LISTENER, I AM PASSIONATE ABOUT WINDSWEPT STORIES.'
I know. Well-earned wrinkles make my statue as a crone visible. I am no longer hidden. For that I am truly grateful. It’s time. I am owning the gifts that I bring and the powerful, protective energy sustaining them.
You are safe here. Unless, of course, you find it challenging to venture with me as we wander into dreams for deeper meaning, enter the woods and muse about nature, pass through the threshold into the imaginal space of poetry, or as I try to see through the eyes of my dog companion. And there’s more on my YouTube Channel.
My Irish grandmother, for whom I was named, would be proud. I’ve continued the tradition of other familial highly sensitive persons (HSPs). I am a deep listener and a guide in my work with individuals and groups. I easily tune into the energy of others and allow my intuition to lead.
Oh. And, because we are getting to know each other, I’ll mention that I received a Master’s degree from Fordham University. Along the way, I studied various spiritualities and obtained certifications from The Haden Institute, Martha Beck Coaching, Reiki I/II training, and the Dream Tending Program. While we're at it, I’d love for you to read my book entitled Soul’s Homecoming, An Empath’s Journey to Inner Wisdom. But then, these are just things I did, not necessarily who I am.
The takeaway is that I am an explorer and a seeker. It’s embedded in my nature to use intuition while I help others find their own guidance system. I do this as an inner wisdom wayfinder, a dreamworker, and a 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 Master's 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 to re-imagine parts of my being and spirit, and discovered what I already knew deep inside that my superpower is deep listening. I decided to own my natural ability to see with a mystical inner eye.
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 about and (re)creating a life that may have taken a back seat?
