There are some things I may not know
There are some places, I may not go.
But there’s one thing of which I’m sure
My God is real for I can feel him in my soul.
~God is Real, Krishna Das
I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS.
I was raised in a town of less than 5,000 people in southeast Minnesota. At 19 my love of music sent me to study at the Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, FL. After graduation I headed to Seattle, WA, where I somehow talked my way into becoming the booking agent for a well-known music club during the height of “grunge” music. After 2 years I began to head south, landing in Pacifica, CA for a few months before accepting a job in Beverly Hills, CA and spending 3 years in the midst of celebrity. During this time I was involved in my own creative projects with my partner. I co-produced comedy shows around the country and eventually produced and acted in an independent feature film that was showcased at the Sundance Film Festival 1999. From 1997 – 2012 I lived in New York City. Much of my time there was spent working at The New Yorker Magazine producing special events for their editorial department before finally transitioning into my true life’s work.
I am drawn to rituals and mysticism and this has led me to research various worldly religions and spiritual traditions. In 2007, I completed a 4-year counseling program called Helix, and was ordained as a minister of the Helix Healing Ministry. Being ordained allows me the legal right to practice “laying on of hands” in the State of New York. The program gave me a strong psychological & spiritual knowledge base along with years of experiential work as a psycho-spiritual counselor. I now serve as a member of the Helix Healing Ministry Board.
It was also in 2007 when I began voice channeling – working with my Spirit Guides who began to speak through me. At first it was physically challenging to ground the energy coming through. (Not to mention emotionally and mentally challenging to remain with one foot in the “corporate world” and one foot in the “spiritual world” for 2 more years.) After leaving Corporate America in 2009 and visiting John of God in Brazil, the act of channeling became easier and the messages became clearer. Since moving to Ubud, Bali in 2012 my channel has opened to even stronger energy and a deeper connection to my “Higher Self” and with the Divine. Because of my counseling background, which taught me how to hold space, clients feel safe enough to explore some of the most intimate and vulnerable places in their life. This opening allows me to access information buried below the surface that the conscious mind cannot access, and shed light on the Truth that underlies the issues. I am deeply honored to take this journey with my clients.
Music has remained a part of my life with an early attempt at forming a band in my 20s, producing concerts in my 30s, and now singing kirtan. Every time I sing I can feel my heart vibrate. The act of singing kirtan for the past 3 years has had a tremendous impact on my connection to the Divine. It has healed me in many personal ways and has allowed me to also use my voice for healing in my private sessions with others.
Sharing the knowledge I have gained through leading workshops and retreats also plays a major role in my life right now. I have explored many topics, traditions, belief systems and I love to share what I have learned. I find group experiences (classes) to be so beneficial for not only the participants but also for myself – always learning.
I feel all of my life experience gives me a grounded foundation to work from in order to identify and diffuse my client’s spiritual and energetic blocks and to empower them through the understanding of co-creation and connection with the Universe. My mission is to spread the Light and to remind each person that they are carriers of the Light.
My path and definition of spirituality is deeply personal and unique to me. My daily life is my “church” and it is with loving kindness, deep gratitude and commitment to my path that I do this work.
