About Me

These are incredible, dynamic times. I am so excited that the events and learning of my life have prepared me to be of great help to people at such a pivotal moment. Working with ancient Principles, applying them to everyday life, using techniques that WORK--effecting change that is lasting--I've developed a system for working with issues that allows people to get back to being the person they were at the moment of birth! (That's your authentic self!) I enjoy forming a partnership with you that helps you identify, work with, and resolve pain and issues so you can move on to other things. As The Emotional Pro, I have powerful tools to give you that will enable you to resolve issues with speed and finality. It's difficult for me to talk about "modalities" or "problem areas," because the work we do together covers so much more. We figure out your "life" together and help you manifest it the way you want it to be. I look forward to hearing from you and working together to enable you--and through you, all of us--to grow and soar.
