Beginnings…a little of my story

I was born and raised in New England… Connecticut mostly… the southeastern part of the state by the coast.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step.

I grew up on 4 acres of woods next to a river which feeds into Long Island Sound. It was the beginning of my love affair with water and boats. And now, for more than 15 years, I am blessed to sail around the Channel Islands in our little sloop-rigged sailboat. I will point out… she’s not a luxury… she’s a necessity.

As a young teenager, influenced by the Beatles and Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, I began experimenting with transcendental meditation and altered states of consciousness. I attended university in Boston, where I met my husband, Michael, while working as his temporary secretary. Even though my main course of study was early childhood education, I continued to explore metaphysical concepts, the energy body and the chakra system. I learned self-hypnosis. I studied psychology and philosophy. I remain a life-long student of human behavior, the mind and the esoteric sciences.

A cross-country journey (one of five we’ve taken) eventually led us to Newbury Park. I worked as a para-legal for a real estate developer. I was an administrative assistant for a tennis racquet manufacturer. I became a realtor and then began taking photography classes at Moorpark College. For more than 12 years I owned and operated a real estate photography service. As a fine-art photographer, I exhibited in galleries and museums. During that time, our son, Adam, was born. Becoming very involved in the art program at his school eventually led to years of teaching art to children. I began experimenting with sculpture and was in the process of doing a series of life-castings, a “body of work” so to speak, when I broke my shoulder.

It turned out to be a life-changing event, as it was the catalyst to stop teaching and begin learning again. With my arm in a sling, I enrolled in classes at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute. After a year’s course of study and a clinical internship,I graduated with honors and opened my practice in Westlake Village, California.

Although I continue to be a working artist as well as a published author, my focus has been practicing the healing arts.

I absolutely love what I do and feel as if I’ve been preparing to do this work for my entire life.
