I was born and raised in the Central Valley wine country of California. As a child I always had a sensitivity to read what was going on with other people. I picked up everyone's energy and was in real turmoil. I didn't know what to do with it or how to shut it off, so I turned to alcohol and drugs. This numbed me but it did not solve my problem.
I graduated high school and went to college. I didn't do very well and dropped out to work, travel, and try to find myself. I used alcohol to maintain in the world, but it created lots of problems. I had a serious liver illness when I was 27 and I had to quit drinking. Being sober, I found alternative forms of healing, such as yoga, juicing, colon cleansing, and energy work. I healed my liver completely, but unfortunately, I did not heal my soul. I went back to drinking. I had a degree in computer repair and moved to the Silicon Valley. I then moved to San Francisco where I got my English and Linguistics degree from U.C. Berkeley.
While working as a manager of a technical writing department, I had liver failure again. Then within a year I was in a major car accident. These events forced me to sober up permanently. They also drove me to find alternative solutions to the migraines and pain I was in. These events changed the course of my life. I see myself as having two lifetimes in one. Up until I was 33 years old, I had a life dominated by alcohol and belief in scientific materialism. After the accident, I began my spirtual quest.
I was fortunate to be in San Francisco when the New Age movement was blossoming. I was able to meet and study with some great healers and teachers. I continued to work in the Silicon Valley, but I used all my resources and spare time to pursue my spiritual development. It was truly an exciting time.
I would work in various areas of alternative healing over the years. I found I was very good at clearing out negative energies and blocks from people, animals, and spaces. I worked as a consultant, writing technical documentation for the Silicon Valley. Working at home allowed me to work part-time healing people and clearing homes. About eight years ago I finally quit my job and I have been working full-time ever since. I love my work and am passionate about helping people find their own soul's path.
