Training and Experience

I have a Master’s degree in English and Communications from Northwestern University; that is what the M.A. after my name stands  for. A long time ago I was a college teacher. I do not have academic training as a psychologist or psychotherapist, and I’m not licensed in the State of Colorado as a physician, psychologist, psychotherapist or other licensed health care provider.

I have extensive training, certification and experience in psycho-spiritual therapeutic work, and I offer my services as an Intuitive Mentor and Spiritual Life Path Coach. I hold the Honors Certification in EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques). I was trained by developer Gary Craig, and I am one of 29 EFT Masters worldwide.  I am also deeply and widely trained in NLP (Neuro-Lingistic Programming), clinical hypnotherapy, working with creative metaphors for change, and other creative intuitive techniques.  I am ordained as a minister-priest by David Spangler and the Lorian Association (

I love the opportunity to work co-creatively with another person as a coach and intuitive mentor, sharing an intuitive healing process in a partnership.  I am not “psychic,” in the traditional sense of the term, but I am very intuitive.  In fact, in has taken me my life to understand and accept how my intuition works, and to learn how to teach others to embody their own intuitive style.

My sense of spirituality is the foundation for everything I do. It is non-denominational and not church- or religion-based. My spirituality arises more from a reverence for all life, and an intention to perceive, honor and reflect the best in a person or a situation. I am not preachy about my beliefs! I am open to and accepting of all forms of spirituality.

I am very familiar with working with the energetic patterns of the serious mental, emotional and physical challenges that we humans face. When I work with a client using Meridian Techniques, I am connecting with the subtle energy or spiritual bodies of my client, understanding that physical body symptoms are more the domain of the medical field and allied health care professionals. I explain to my clients that there is a distinction between coming to wholeness using the Meridian Techniques, and the practice of medicine, psychology or any other licensed health care practice.  This distinction is important to governmental and legal regulatory institutions.

Personally, I trust you. I believe that you are the “expert” in how you experience your symptoms and behaviors, and you are the “expert in being you.” I believe that you invite me to explore how to find a flow toward wholeness, in partnership with you, based on what you tell me and what I perceive in you.

It is a great joy for me to work with people individually. I also love the energizing, nourishing sense of community and belonging that can form in a group that is working with good will and a shared sense of purpose. I can share a healing space with you by telephone, Skype and Zoom, and in person in my Boulder, Colorado office.

I work with flexible self-help coaching tools that have broad application for a variety of issues. I am using my version of them in my work. Although I can’t provide a guarantee (please read my Disclaimer), clients have reported extraordinary results.
