First Steps to Therapy and Counseling
I’ve had an interesting journey and the privilege of working with great mentors in order to offer you the highest quality services. I’m a magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa graduate from the University of Connecticut, with a degree in sociology and psychology. My postgraduate studies have included work with Douglas Brady in his “Embodyment” training program, synthesizing the work of Eva Pierrakos, John Upledger and Barbara Brennan. This work enabled me to heal from childhood sexual abuse and to incorporate these somato-emotional healing modalities into my current practice. I have also trained with renowned past life regression therapist Dr. Brian Weiss, psychic medium James Van Praagh and studied life between lives regression therapy at the Newton Institute, founded by Dr. Michael Newton.
Past Life Regression Therapist
My career as a past life regression therapist was triggered when at the age of nine I recalled a past life as a slave in Virginia in the 1700s. This profound experience changed my view about life, opened up my intuitive abilities, and launched my spiritual quest at an early age. Knowing that I had lived before, I could no longer accept the concept that we live only one life before moving into an immortal soul life. When my father died in 1976, I set out to study with Swami Satchidananda to understand the concepts of reincarnation and past lives. I also became a certified hatha yoga instructor after studying at the Satchidananda Ashram in 1979.
I wanted others to experience the same peace and healing I found through discovery of my past lives. This led me to train with the renowned psychiatrist Dr. Brian Weiss and become certified as a past life regression therapist in 1998. I’m also a professional member of the International Association for Regression Research and Therapies, Inc. (IARRT)
Life Between Lives
I have also trained with Dr. Michael Newton at the Newton Institute as a Life Between Lives hypnotherapist. I offer this service to those who wish to understand the soul’s work between lifetimes and who have previously experienced past life regressions.
Psychic Medium and Spiritual Intuitive
As I helped others to discover their past lives and assisted them in healing the present through the past, another commitment was asked of me. Many times during a past life session deceased loved ones of a client would ask me to convey messages from them through my abilities as a medium. My mentor Dr. Brian Weiss has frequently collaborated with renowned medium James Van Praagh and this led me to receive training and certification from Van Praagh as a psychic medium. Since 2006 I have hosted group sittings and private psychic readings using my abilities as a psychic medium to share messages from loved ones in spirit. I am also a spiritual intuitive and offer psychic readings to guide you in your most important life decisions. It is such a privilege to offer you the opportunity to discover your past lives, as well as to hear from your loved ones in spirit. It’s a wonderful way to overcome the fear of death and know that you and your loved ones are truly okay!
The Beautiful Berkshires
I live in the Berkshires of southwestern Massachusetts, a popular vacation resort and cultural mecca. I see clients at my home office, “The Lighthouse”, 10 Beacon Hill, Great Barrington, MA in the village of Housatonic. My satellite office where I see clients once monthly is at The Spring, 1381 Boston Post Rd., Old Saybrook, CT. I also offer phone readings and travel throughout the northeastern U.S. to host group readings and “Discover Your Past Lives” workshops. Many out-of-town clients enjoy visiting the Berkshires and staying at one of the many wonderful accommodations while working with me. A charming lakeside inn with a great Indian restaurant attached is The Black Swan Inn in Lee, MA. For more accommodations and info visit www.berkshires.org
