Girl with Horse


Who I am and why I'm here for you

Like you, I've been through a lot.  I'm a mother of four grown children.  I know what it's like to have four little children running around - a house filled with chaos, joy and wonder. 

I also know what it's like to be an empty nester, with the children all grown and the house suddenly quiet.

I know what it's like to live with someone who struggles with depression and addiction.  I've learned a lot about love and forgiveness over the years. 

I know marriage can be beautiful, but sometimes it may be time to move on.  I know divorce doesn't have to be ugly and that it may be about growth and love expanding.

I know about aging parents and trying my best to be there for them.  And the challenges that go along with love and acceptance.

I know about losing a loved one - how to prepare for the loss, and then to manage the grief.

I know what it means to age with wisdom, grace and curiosity, and to begin a second career.

And I love helping people find their inner peace and happiness, their balanced, healthy 'Chi', because it lies within each and every single one of us... we just need to get in touch with it and recalibrate, and I'd love to help you do just that.
