Changing your thinking, aligning your mind with your heart, can help you navigate life with more ease and assurance.
I moved to San Francisco in 1979 after graduating magna cum laude with a degree in theatre from State University of New York, New Paltz. In 1989, after having acupuncture for a never-ending cold, my acupuncturist suggested I see an intuitive healer. I set up an appointment with Francesca McCartney, founder of the Academy of Intuition Medicine.® After one session, I was compelled to study with Francesca. I enrolled in her school, and earned a certification as a Master of Intuition Medicine in 1992. I began my career as an Intuitive right after graduation.
I have always been able to easily access the emotions of others, as well as my own emotions. In fact, I was so open to others’ emotions that I would take on someone else’s discomfort without understanding that what I was feeling was their emotional strife. In our first meeting, Francesca taught me that empathic people often merge their energies with others, even to the point of making themselves ill.
That, as it turned out, was the root cause of the never-ending cold I couldn’t shake. Francesca taught me how to make energy separations and within minutes I felt so much better (really!). Much to my surprise the “cold” disappeared. If you have never worked with an Intuitive, this may sound like magic, but it isn’t!
It did turn out to be a defining moment for me, since it led me to the work I do now and love. Developing my intuition has helped me to know and accept myself in a deep and profound way. It has also helped me to create better emotional and energetic boundaries. I bring all these skills into my work.
Although I could not have predicted that I would have a career as an Intuitive, I believe the consciousness raising of the 60’s and the metaphysical expressions of the 70’s inspired me to explore my own soul work. I discovered the power of the I Ching (the Chinese Book of Changes) and soon after that, the Norse Runes.
All these forms of divination spoke to me at different times in my life. Each new insight furthered my soul-deep desire to study the metaphysical and to find a way to use this knowledge to help others. In time, I discovered that my real work is to help people connect with themselves on a deep level as well as to help them develop their intuition.
It has been a privilege to work with so many clients and to witness their personal growth. When I’m not working with people one-on-one, I teach workshops, act professionally, teach acting to kids, and am a mom of a fabulous, inspiring boy.
