In Her Own Words:

I'm so glad you are visiting my site.  My mission is to help people transform by understanding and becoming their authentic selves.  Stress, whether it be physical, mental or emotional, creates energy frequencies that impact us and everyone and everything that surrounds us in a powerful way.  Learning to identify, address and change old mental, emotional and physical habits can change the energetic frequencies of our thoughts and beliefs - at every moment we have a choice point as to how we respond - with fear or trust, judgment or compassion in our thoughts, work habits, learning styles and interpresonal relationships.  I will expand your awareness to your physical and emotional responses, compensations, and mind chatter loops, and introduce you to tools and techniques that allow you to transform stress, physiological tension, and achieve balance.

In addition to helping people from all professions, I have a specialization in Performing Artists.  If what you learn about here in these pages speaks to you, please contact me today to arrange a consultation.
