Sometimes, all the usual advice just doesn’t work

Parenting is tough.
Parenting a sensitive, spirited, or emotionally intense kid? It can feel almost impossible. You might be at your wit’s end, but don’t lose hope—there’s another option.

For years I worked as a counselor in schools, career centers, and programs for at-risk youth. What I learned during that time is that for people of all ages, the world can be a difficult place to be. Our society is a “one-size-fits-most,” and many people with beautiful gifts are left feeling out of place.

In children, this can result in meltdowns at school, physical sensitivities, and acting out from sheer boredom. For adults, that sense of being “out of place” can impact every area of your life—from intimacy to your career and beyond.

My goal is to help individuals and families reconnect—both with each other and with their own inner guidance systems. Because those connections are what allow us to live intentional, powerful lives.

As a child, I felt like I was in a world of my own. Inside that world I was magical, comfortable, and at peace. Outside of it, though, I felt anxious, shy, and awkward, like an alien in my body. My clothes itched, shoes felt like prison, and sitting in a classroom was torturous. Everything felt too loud. I was labeled as difficult and put in the “slow learner” corner.

Many of the kids I work with have had similar experiences.

As I grew older, I realized that others didn’t see the world the way I did. So I stopped sharing my gifts. I learned to hide that magical space inside me. I grew up fairly “normal,” earning a degree in Child Psychology and building a successful career I was proud of.

But in time, that inner voice that I had silenced broke through.

As a result, I spent years delving into both spirituality and religion—studying different cultures, traditions, and rites of passage. I spent roughly a year apprenticing under a Native American medicine woman and even longer becoming a Reiki Master. I learned how to move energy through my hands, my voice, and my intention. I learned how to manage my own sensitivities and use my gifts in service of others.

I’ve developed my natural empathic gifts, and today I am able to read people, things, and places with incredible accuracy. Oftentimes, I know things without any explanation. These abilities are often referred to as clairvoyant, telepathic, and even psychic. I deeply appreciate these gifts, as they’ve allowed me to help clients who feel let down by the traditional systems of self-development and guidance. I’m able to see the root cause of problems and identify clear ways to solve or better understand them.

But don’t worry—we’re not going to get all airy-fairy up in here

As someone who’s been trained in both traditional counseling and alternative guidance methods, I bring a serious level of down-to-earth-ness to my work. I’m focused on equipping you with the practical tools and clarity you need to make a change.

Unlike many in my field, I also have both the education and professional track record to back me up:

  • B.S. in Child Psychology, Minor in Counseling from University of Minnesota – Twin Cities
  • I’ve served as a counselor for at-risk youth, adult probation officer & investigator, Child Protective Services worker, employment & career counselor, and high school guidance counselor
  • Over 20 years of experience in counseling, consulting, teaching, and mentoring
  • Trained as a life coach
  • Level III Reiki Master

I am deeply committed to integrity in my work. I will always be up front about whether or not I can help you, and I will always walk my talk.
