SOAR is a system of self-refinement that guides participants towards alignment with truth, deep inner awareness, and a profound sense of peace. The program was designed to catalyze & support complete life transformation by nurturing the holistic nature of the human being. Chose from traditional and alternative healing modalities that can be experienced individually or with a committed partner or spouse. Additionally, SOAR can be adapted into a wellness program for your small business or company.

What Clients Say

"If you want to be taken on a journey of re-generation... total transformation - come see her. She knows how to get deep inside your emotions, find out what you're clinging to, what you're still dependent on - she'll get to the heart of that and torch it. Gone. Like that."

Nothing is more satisfying to me than helping people make breakthroughs to understand themselves and the world around them more clearly. What you choose to do with that newfound clarity is up to you, but I will say this: the nature of such discernment is evolutionary growth - a constant deepening of awareness that yearns to perceive all inner & outer realities without illusive veils.

This hefty (yet ultimately joyful!) way of living allows you to move freely into your fullest potential, confident with every step because you know you are embodying your most authentic self, and you are aligned with the natural Universe.

I’m no stranger to transformation myself. My life has been a series of deaths and re-births. I love what the Sufi saint & poet Rabia wrote: “I died a thousand times before I died.” Yes. Me too. Sometimes at the cellular level…other times, it was a portion of my ego dissipating, or old habits and mindsets that were no longer serving my highest development.
 
Do I have it all figured out? Of course not. But I do know I’ve devoted my life to ascending the mountain of Truth/Empowerment/Sacred Love/Deep Peace, and if you, too, feel called to forge a way up (or SOAR your way up) that beautiful, mysterious mountain, I would be honored to be your guide.

I come from a hard-working family in Chicago, though it's been a long time since I called the Midwest home. I’ve lived coast to coast in the States, as well as in Europe & Morocco. I've also traveled to nearly thirty countries, sometimes to work with spiritual teachers & indigenous leaders, other times to hike through magical forests & jump through waterfalls - and always to observe the world from wildly new perspectives. 

Because I've encountered a wide range of relationships, lifestyles, and beliefs in both my personal & professional lives, I've been shaped into an adaptable, open-minded human, able to provide clients with a wealth of resources and wisdom gained not only from scholarly research, but also from deeply lived experiences. Sometimes I feel as if I've experienced ten lifetimes worth of living in this one lifetime so far. Not to mention, I'm an old, old soul. Maybe you are, too.


I have formally studied at New York University, in Aix-en-Provence France, and at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas where I received my graduate degree. Upon graduation, I was invited to teach in the UNLV Honors College, where I am currently a Professor teaching multi-disciplinary seminars. You can find out more about me as a Professor
here. I also enjoy writing and have published several stories & poems. You can read some of my older, published work (and glimpse newer, unpublished work) here

My background as a spiritual guide, counselor, and healer evolved over decades of intensive shamanic work & dedicated learning from intuitive therapists, spiritual teachers, and indigenous medicine carriers who shared their wisdom, lineages, and direct transmissions with me. I am eternally grateful for the 14-year relationship I had with my primary teacher/healer/shamanic guide who played a vital role in shaping the way I hold space for my own clients; he always places integrity, alignment, and love at the center of his healings. I am also indebted to the Sufi master with whom I studied in France, who first activated my innermost heart. And I give great thanks to the Yawanawa family of Amazonian Brazil for sharing their pure, unadulterated, Earth medicines with me; my relationship with plant medicines wouldn't be as grounded as it is if I hadn't made multiple pilgrimages to Brazil to learn from Peû (the respected Yawa pajé), Biraci (the chief), and Putanny (the chief's wife & first female Yawa medicine carrier - and my favorite person to dance with beside the sacred fire.)

 As well, the time I've spent at the Mount Adams Buddhist Temple and Druid Sanctuary in Washington State has been dear to my soul; the clean energy of the grounds & temple, the sweetness of the alpaca on the farm, and the power of the volcanic mountain all combine to form a pristine container in which inner-journeying becomes effortless and supported. Additionally, I've had the privilege of learning from the greatly-understated Dr. John Beaulieu, a psychologist and sound therapist living in upstate New York. And, Dr. Marta Meana is a therapist/mentor/researcher (and my former boss) who taught me endless lessons in leadership & inter-personal dynamics. Thank you, too, to Dr. Lisa Cunningham for training me in Jungian Sandplay Therapy for Adults - a fascinating modality in which the client's own unconscious psyche acts as healer.

Most recently, I returned to my Indo-European roots and dived into the energies and shamanic traditions that stem from that part of the world, where my own ancestors thrived. Not only did the shamanic training I completed in Europe re-connect me to the power of my blood lineage, but it also re-connected me to an archetypical part of my identity I hadn't been consciously nourishing.

Moving forward into 2025, I anticipate a plant medicine training in South America, a pilgrimage to Japan, and the start of a four-year program in Existential Analysis & Logotherapy.


And finally, this section of acknowledgments would not be complete without expressing gratitude for my favorite human: my sweet, generous, devoted, visionary, former monk, current entrepreneur, incredible Beloved. Our entire relationship is a sacred, revelatory ceremony...and the most meaningful spiritual practice I've ever had.

A Note on My Guidance Style

Although t
he process of change can involve radical intensities, peak experiences, and being pushed to your limits, it doesn't need to. In fact, inner-alchemical transfiguration is often quite gentle and nurturing. Generally speaking, I take the latter approach with my clients as it allows for a safer psychological setting, more stability, a more sophisticated refinement of the client's qualities, and less risk of the client "getting lost" in novel experiences and new techniques.

As well, because I am aware of the organic nature of personal evolution, the SOAR program is not rigid; we'll adapt & change our journey together based on your unique needs, what you're working on during any given month, what you want to explore more deeply, and what brings you the greatest sense of satisfaction and progress. 

Thank you for taking the time to explore my site and offerings. It would bring me great happiness to serve you along your journey.
