I believe I've worked with most of the spectrum of human issues over the past 18 years. From relationships and jobs, to life decision-making and deeply complicated situations, to immense suffering and emotional loss, to contacting loved ones (both human and animal) who have crossed over, to physical challenges, to the very human need and desire to grow personally and spiritually.
I have a strong desire to be of service, and it has been an honor to be in a position to counsel and guide, or to hold the space of stability, when asked. When a client says, "Thank you" I always feel within myself, "Thank YOU." You are the gift to me.
Something that seems to be unique within me is that I can straddle the line quite well between darkness and light. I strive to live in the light as much as possible, but have had many experiences of plunging to the depths of darkness, and I can relate quite humanly and compassionately to just about anything a person shows up with. I perceive all of it as energy that can be easily worked with once it is brought to conscious awareness.
I welcome the opportunity to help bring more light to our lives and banish a bit more darkness, one step at a time. Additionally, I feel unconditional love and acceptance for the people who've come to me, and am grateful to be someone that people feel supported by in sharing their realness.
I work both by phone and in person from my home in Aptos, California, nestled between a redwood forest and the sea. I'm often accompanied by a big, lovable 10-year old dog named Rami, and always in the presence of Spirit. In my off days and hours, guided by my Taurus moon, I write, walk on the beach or through the forest, make good food, pursue a few artistic endeavors, travel, and continue my own quest for deeper inner peace and harmony. If you'd like to know more, please read my blog post How I Began This Work.
As a psychic empath, I sense and feel what is going on, whether emotionally, personally, or otherwise. It is natural for me to feel what you're feeling, and to sense the underlying causes of our human predicaments. My intuition is indispensable in my work, and something I've relied on quite heavily to help people find clarity, balance, insight, and greater peace in life.
I use the astrological birth chart in my sessions. The appointment is not an astrology reading, but can be if you request it specifically. I use the chart in various ways to provide clarity and insight. Seeing your astrology chart allows me to know more about your basic personality, emotional tendencies, spiritual inclination, relationships, timing of circumstances, and other relevant information which is all used in a positive, life-affirming, soul-supportive way.
Although I look at your chart during your session (except for the 45-minute energy balancing) I do separate readings by request on Solar Returns, Synastry, Current Transits, and your Natal chart. I also help parents with a new baby or their growing children by offering insights about the child's temperament and the gifts you have come to give one another.
During an in person session, I balance your chakras and energy field, clear energies that don't belong to you or are no longer serving you, bring grounded stability to your energy field, and call in light to fill you. You typically will feel lighter, freer, steadier, less stressed, and more hopeful. While your chakras get balanced and your energy field gets a shine, we'll either do deep healing work or simply coax your entire being into a state of centered, grounded, peace and balance. Before finishing, we draw forth your divine soul essence, and you'll leave feeling more like yourself than you have in quite a while.
Energy healing can also be done by phone. Distance doesn't matter.

I’m dedicated to helping you live in alignment with your authentic nature. I see you as a soul, first and foremost, which has brought forth its own wisdom and light. And because I view life from this perspective of the soul, the basic question in my mind is, "What might your soul be asking for in this moment?"
However, I work with all views and beliefs about our life here as humans. Working within your own level of comfort, I support you to become more clear and confident in any area, whether it be a physical or emotional imbalance, work-related concern, spiritual crisis, relationship issue, decision-making, spiritual growth, or simply deepening your self-awareness and living with greater ease. I’ve helped countless people become physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually harmonious while illuminating the path of their own truth.
I am open to requests and happy to coordinate and facilitate a gathering if you have a group of friends or like-minded souls who would enjoy a spiritually-focused experience.
One of the most satisfying parts of the work I do is helping people connect in a deeper and more meaningful way to their soul essence. As a healer, it is nearly impossible for me to meet with someone and not begin to find the places that are out of balance, ignored, hidden, or locked in any sort of pretense. I view life as a quest for holistic integration of our body, mind, and emotions intertwining seamlessly with spirit. One goal of spiritual healing is to help us evolve beyond limiting beliefs and fears, and to expand into greater love and trust.
In helping you along this path, I support you in any spiritual or religious path you happen to be on, even if it is none at all. I do not promote or subscribe to a particular religious or spiritual belief system that I think you should also believe in. My approach is to help you on the path that is right for you, the one you have chosen, and I support it whether or not it is also mine.
The ability to perceive things beyond ordinary perception comes naturally to me and I use it liberally in my work. The way I use my clairvoyance (and clairaudience) is not like a typical psychic because my work is for healing and support, and it's not my interest to predict the future. For example, I see energy and then offer choices based on what I see, so you can then make your own decisions.
Should I stay? Should I go? How does this choice compare with that choice? How can I best move into the next phase of my life? How can I best maneuver this situation? Can you help me work with, live with, or love this person better? How can I better manage this situation? These are some of the types of questions I hear, and I enjoy helping people gain clarity through them.
I will rarely give you an absolute answer of, "Do this..." Instead, I tell you about the energy as I see it. You then take responsibility for your own decisions going forward, based on the information, if you choose to use it.
If you want to make wise choices, if you want to heal old wounds and move beyond stuck places in your life, if you want to grow personally and spiritually, I can help you do that.
I suggest that everyone live and work in places that are energetically clean and clear. Areas of your life such as your finances, relationships, and health can improve or go downhill based on the energy in your space, so it's a good practice to keep the energy of your personal places as high as possible.
It is one of my areas of expertise to enter a space and immediately feel the stagnation and problem areas. In your home or office, I will detect the areas of difficulty, clear them to bring in a higher vibration, and I'll make suggestions of what you can do to arrange things to keep the energy flowing harmoniously and positively.
Prior to moving into a new home or office, it's best to shift out the energies of previous tenants and set the space to best enhance your own future experience there. I can do this for you, and I can teach you how to keep your space beautiful and light, to enhance your life.
Most of us want financial freedom, relationship harmony, good sleep, health, and happiness. Whatever the case, we can discuss and you can let me know whether you're already sensing problem areas in your home or office. I'll take a look with an eye toward the energy. This does include some feng shui basics, but mostly I'm looking at discordant energies, the way things are arranged, and how the energy sits in the space. I'll clear the space, and advise you on the best remedies for any difficult spots. Often times, just after this happens, I hear back from people that something major shifted in their lives shortly after the space clearing. Everything is energy, and it's all interconnected.
Please note that a combination of these services is typically used in a single session, depending on what is needed or requested.
I'm not a medical doctor and do not treat medical conditions, nor is my work covered under any insurance policy.
Lasting one hour, a phone appointment is an effective and comfortable way for you to have a session from anywhere. I’ve worked with many people for years by phone only, so if you’re at a distance or time is an issue, don’t hesitate to have one. It's my experience that you will get more out of a phone session than an in-person session if you want direct clarity and insight into the concern or issue. I will call you at the time of our appointment. Please be in a quiet, tranquil place where you’ll be uninterrupted for the hour.
in person energy balancing
This peaceful, relaxing session includes chakra and energy balancing. Lasting 45 minutes, when you arrive, you'll get right onto the table (fully clothed) and begin a session of unwinding, de-stressing, and energetic healing. This session does not include intuitive counseling or astrology (it isn't massage or Reiki, which I'm often asked) nor is there deeper energy work involved. It's simply a way for you to shift into a centered, grounded, balanced state and harmonize your whole being.
In depth readings of your Natal chart, Current Transits, Synastry, or Solar Return last one hour by phone. Please specify which type of reading you would like and send your birth information: date of birth, exact time of birth, and location.
space clearing per hour
Space clearing is typically done in person, but can be done at a distance as well. Depending on the size of your home or office and the trouble spots involved, I can usually complete a clearing within an hour to two hours.
in person full session
Lasting about two hours, this session is a blend of intuitive and astrological counseling combined with energy healing and balancing. I will listen and go in depth into what is on your mind, use your astrological birth chart as a foundation of our discussion, then do chakra balancing and energy work as needed.
You simply show up as you are. Having a pair of socks with you to wear is a good idea, as it's a no-shoes environment and Aptos can be chilly.
Please refrain from using scented products on the day of your appointment. I appreciate your not bringing someone with you unless I know about it in advance.
I don’t have a waiting area, but there are two coffee houses nearby, and plenty of walking trails.
