FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT ARE YOUR CREDENTIALS, AND PROFESSIONAL TRAINING?
Here is a quick run down on my professional training, credentials and important influences.
I am a natural born Clairvoyant, Empath and Medium and have always had an understanding that we are so much more than our physical form. I began seeing spirits of departed loved ones when I was young and have been a life-long student of all things esoteric and metaphysical. As my knowledge and personal experiences evolved, I became more and more drawn to studies which illuminated the human journey from the perspective of the Soul, and began to explore various healing modalities which addressed the pain of unconscious woundedness and unhealed trauma (which, among other conditions, keep us frozen in a continuous state of numbness, anxiety and fight or flight response).
After spending several years as a top-rated advisor for Psychic Access, I came to the realization that simply giving predictive readings was not serving my client's highest good, nor did it aid in their spiritual evolution. In order to facilitate deep healing, lasting change and powerful shifts in perception, I needed to empower them to connect with their own soul wisdom and intuition. So, I packed up and headed for Arizona where I attended the Southwest Institute of Healing Arts and earned professional certification as a Transformational Life Coach and Spiritual Coach.
My professional training also includes attending Las Piramides del Ka in San Marcos La Laguna, Guatemala where initiation into esoteric wisdom is taught in the mystical tradition of the ancient mystery schools. I have completed over 500 hours of Yoga Teacher Training and am a fully accredited instructor. My YTT was completed in Bali and in Arizona. Additionally, I have studied Mediumship with Lisa Williams and A Course in Miracles with Marianne Williamson.
However, the most important aspect of my education was probably travel. I roamed the globe for years in search of esoteric knowledge and lived in various ashrams and spiritual communities, where I learned to meditate and practice sacred silence for extended periods of time. I hung out with (and learned from) Maori Healers in New Zealand and Shamanic Practitioners in Mexico. I experienced a series of Ayahuasca (sacred plant medicine) ceremonies in Costa Rica and Native American sweat lodges in California.
I also met some amazing people, found my tribe of spiritual healers and lightworkers and experienced the powerful effect of communing with like-minded people in sacred, high vibrational locations. The impact on my spiritual development and on my overall health and well- being was beyond powerful...I would say it was miraculous.
It was during this period of seeking, at Ananda Ashram in Green Valley, California, that I received an energy activation and a download of the Akashic records. This information allows me access to records of our past incarnations, individual soul contracts, karmic debt and more. Clients gain a more expansive understanding of their lives and their current lessons when viewed from the wider perspective of the entirety of their soul journey over many lifetimes.
My formal education includes earning a BA at Sarah Lawrence College in Bronxville, NY. I grew up in Hanover, NH with college professors for parents and spent the first half of my life working in Hollywood. (But, that's another story!)
WHAT IS SPIRITUAL ALCHEMY?
WHAT IF I HAVE DIFFERENT RELIGIOUS BELIEFS THAN YOU?
I am available and happy to work with anyone sincerely seeking transformation, healing, connection, knowledge, inspiration or joy. However, my work resonates most deeply with those who seek the light within and who desire an awakened connection with the Infinite Eternal Source of All that Is (AKA GOD) through walking the spiritual path.
HOW DO I PREPARE FOR A SESSION?
I will send you an email with instructions prior to our initial session. However, in general, it is important that during the session you are in a quiet space where you will not be interrupted. Wear comfortable clothes, have water nearby. Also, meditate on the issues or questions which are of concern for you (perhaps write them down ahead of time). It is also a good idea to have a pad of paper and pen handy during the session. I am working on setting up a system to record our sessions, but until then you may want to take notes.
WHAT IS A MYSTERY SCHOOL?
WHAT IS TRANSFORMATIONAL SOUL MENTORING?
Mentoring is a form of Tranformational Coaching and is the word I prefer to describe the on-going soul-to-soul partnership which is lovingly cultivated with my clients. It is a relationship gently tended over time, and one which continues to grow as each client's situation and needs evolve.
WILL I RECIEVE MESSAGES FROM MY GUIDES?
Yes. Most often your Spirit Guides will come through during our sessions. They often have specific messages to deliver and are usually working very closely with you in the development of your current life project. The more we connect with them in our sessions, the more attuned you will become to their energy and you will begin to sense their presence and hear their messages more clearly and easily.
DO YOU HAVE PAYMENT PLANS AVAILABLE?
Yes! I know from experience that a payment plan can make it possible to take part in a program or purchase a package that otherwise would be out of reach.
WHAT ARE YOUR PERSONAL SPIRITUAL BELIEFS?
I believe that we are essentially pure LOVE, created by LOVE for the purpose of being LOVE. I believe that LOVE is the only thing in the Universe that is Real (with a capital R) and that fear is an illusion created by the ego (which seeks to protect us, but in doing so keeps us feeling small, separate and powerless).
HOW IS MENTORING (OR COACHING) DIFFERENT FROM THERAPY?
While the coaching process does resemble therapy, it differs in that coaching emphasizes future goals and investigates the manner in which faulty core beliefs prevent you from achieving them. The purpose of coaching is to exercise, strengthen and expand your capacity to manifest a life in alignment with your highest values and aspirations, while therapy is an important process in supporting the development of a strong ego structure and addresses cognitive disorders and maladjusted behavior, resulting in prolonged, chronic inability to function.
Transformational Coaching attracts those people who cope with life in a relatively healthy manner, but want to create MORE of what fulfills them and are willing to take a leap of faith into the unknown territory of their future reality.
