I’ve always been the black sheep among numerous white sheep.  I became my own research project to figure out why I felt so different and isolated in my own skin.  My journey took me through discovering I am a highly sensitive person and how I've spent most of my life trying to (unconsciously) protect my sensitive self. 


I learned how I’m wired differently than most people and the harsh world often felt like too much to endure.  As a kid I started using food to self soothe.  Then as a teenager I switched to cigarettes and by young adulthood I had added alcohol to the mix.  By the end of my addiction 20 years later I was using alcohol and stimulants on a daily basis.  The alcohol was socially acceptable, the stimulants were prescribed by a doctor who eagerly increased the dosage every time I asked.    I never had any serious external consequences from either.  But internally I was a white-hot mess.  I was depressed and hopeless and couldn’t imagine a way out.  Suicide was always a lingering thought.   I finally found my way out of the nightmare in 2009 and have been sober ever since.  You can read about my journey in my two memoirs “High Bottom – Letting go of Vodka and Chardonnay” and “New Bottom – Turning the Other Cheek.”


I've spent the past 20 years immersed in spirituality, intuition, creativity and all things mystical.  I have long known I was a "wayshower" for others on the spiritual path.  I've discovered that most people on the spiritual path have a background similar to mine with anxiety, depression, PTSD, or addiction and typically have grown up in a dysfunctional family.  My passion as a Wayshower is to assist in healing the underlying issues and tapping into the power of the spiritual realm. 


I utilize approaches such as Family Constellations, Dreamwork, Reiki, Kundalini Yoga and Meditation, deep guided imagery, creative writing, and utilizing the canvas to express and feel.  I will help you create a daily practice to keep you connected to the wise part of yourself.  

I currently live a quiet, contemplative life in Carrabelle, Florida where I have regular encounters with dolphins, eagles, horseshoe crabs, and pine trees.




I’m traditionally trained as a psychotherapist but I now work as a professional coach.  I’ve spent the bulk of my post graduate training in alternative modalities which has led to me creating a coaching approach that connects you to your soul and provides intense deep healing through creativity, spirituality and the wisdom of the body.
