Transformational & Spiritual Coach
“the stars began to burn
through the sheets of clouds,
and there was a new voice
which you slowly
recognized as your own”
― Mary Oliver
I have a B.A. in Fine Arts and have spent my career working with the homeless, as a muralist and professional photographer. I completed an apprenticeship in earth wisdom at Kriplau and attended The Graduate Program for Transformative Spiritual Coaching and a Master's student in Consciousness and Transpersonal Psychology. I am also a certified facilitator in Art For Healing.
I am currently a filmmaker creating a docu-series about "Expanding Our Global Imagination In The Time Of Climate Change."
“You are not IN the universe, you ARE the universe, an intrinsic part of it. Ultimately you are not a person, but a focal point where the universe is becoming conscious of itself. What an amazing miracle.”
- Eckhart Tolle, A New Earth
You are an alchemist. I am one too.
I never planned on being a coach. To be honest I didn't really understand what a coach was. In other cultures the term for coach might be wayfinder, guide, healer or shaman. In western culture we don't have these roles, and so "coach" was born.
One part of my story: I spent years struggling to reclaim my personal power which I had given away in the name of people pleasing, love, gender, career, health, money, friendship, family - you name it. I had a hard time knowing what I needed vs. what others wanted. Through many trials and painful experiences I started down the path of learning how to be my own alchemist.
One such lesson of alchemy surfaced in 2012, in a cold Emergency Room on my birthday. I was at the cross roads of a mysterious health crisis that turned into a full blown spiritual journey. Confronted with doctor's scratching their heads to diagnose me all while encouraging invasive surgery and mounting hospital bills, I quickly realized if I was going to recover, I was going to have to get courageous, creative and curious in order to become my own alchemist of healing. I checked myself out of the hospital and went home with the thought that there had to be more.
Bedridden I began to teach myself to meditate. I would often imagine myself sitting at the edge of "Laniakea", the supercluster of galaxies we call home, looking back down at our stars and planets. During one such meditation I went inward and was shocked to be able to see my energy system. I then understood the universal energy in our cosmos, also existed inside my body. This is where my healing took place.
In our western society we have many systems in place that organize our lives of physical matter in a physical world. We are brought up in the systems of traditional classroom education, 9-5 jobs, car payments, mortgages, advertisements selling everything that would give us a perfect face and body . We don't however have many systems in place that support us as "spiritual beings having a human experience." We don't learn how to navigate our interior worlds; how to feel and process our feelings, regulate our energy bodies, have difficult, honest and healing conversations and build trusting and loving relationship with others and our own spirits. Many times we leave this world a mystery to ourselves.
When we only operate in one facet of our human experience, the physical, we begin to identify with our appearance, our things and our loved ones, and forget the invisible power we all have. We neglect our most valuable resource needed to create transformative awareness in this dense and at times difficult physical world: the world of spiritual energy. As Dr. Joe Dispenza says, "You can't change matter with matter. You can only change matter with energy." If you want to change the matter of your life, you must first learn the language of energy.
As a coach I am here to assist you in freeing up your own energy system and connect to the wisdom of your subconscious. By placing compassionate attention on an area of stress, we will identify your emotional blind spots and release their holding patterns. You will let go of imprints not serving you so healing can take place. You will develop greater emotional intelligence and coherence between your interior and exterior world. Your life will mirror the truth of your spirit, not the idea of who you were taught to be.
As an artist, I believe creativity is our birthright. When we keep the energy of our lives mailable, like a ball of clay and MOST importantly, have fun, we open ourselves up to the infinite possibilities awaiting us.
Your life is your masterpiece.
