I am a Houston native who, after many years as a CPA, political activist and stay-at-home mom, have dedicated my life to practicing and teaching the healing arts. A yoga teacher since 1997, I subsequently completed additional training in hypnosis, Reiki, and advanced energy work. In 2004 I completed my master’s degree in transpersonal psychology at Naropa University, where I studied traditional psychology along with spiritual practices such as meditation and ritual.
The topic of my master's paper was the spiritual awakening process (Kundalini), and I have published several articles on this and related topics. This combination of psychological study and metaphysical experience allows me to work with clients in a variety of ways ranging from traditional hypnosis to Reiki to past life regression and shamanic journeys. The focus is always on the individual.
