When we source pure presence and power from within, we are naturally called to share it with others through the sacred service of our lives.

Deeper into me …

My life has had highs and lows. I’ve hit rock bottom, and I’ve reached mountain peaks. My experiences have been difficult and easy. Clumsy and graceful. And always - alive.   

I’ve lost and grieved - money, homes, businesses, people, and security. I know intense emotions (anger, jealousy, regret, sadness, and fear). In the depths of loss and grief, I came to understand that the way through is through. Emotions are my greatest teachers that fuel profound and lasting forgiveness and healing, and change. 

In the integration of emotions, I’ve gained a great appreciation for equanimity - as a state of being. With maturity, practice, and wisdom, I have attained this steady, peaceful space within.  


One of my core life lessons is maintaining my center of personal power and not giving authority to others. In the past, I abandoned myself for pleasing, proving, or money. I hurried when I needed to wait. I said yes when my gut said no. I put pleasing above my feeling. 

Through intensive studies, diligent practice, and my most recent sabbatical, I now live my authentic self. I speak of my needs and wants. I express my soul in thought, word, and deed.

Aligning with my soul essence, I realize that I am not anything I will not take with me when I die. I am not my bank account. I am not my credentials. I am not my home. I am not my personality or my body. I am eternal. 

My personal awakening transformed my life and work. I was forced to re-arrange and re-organize.

Now, it is my honor and delight to support others as they clarify what matters most and create a life based on their soul essence and deepest values.

As an oracle, truth-teller, and wisdom keeper, I serve to guide people in living with integrity. As a highly sensitive individual, I feel deeply. My empathic abilities allow me to sense the energy of people and places. This gift taught me clear discernment, purification methods, and energy cleansing practices.  

My desire is always to bring my humanity and humility to my service. This is why I call myself a companion guide. 

As Ram Das put it, “We are all walking each other home.” 

It is my honor and delight to walk with you.
