I believe we are all inherently connected to each other, even when we don't realize it or feel it. It is our natural state, and I am committed to dispelling the fears and confusions that prevent us from acting on the basis of it. This includes our families, our communities and our world. I bring to this work my intuition, integrity, skill and wisdom, developed over many years of experience as a health care professional, peer counseling teacher, psychotherapy assistant and mom. I love this work! In my 26 years in health care, I learned to help patients make empowered choices for themselves. In my 20 years of peer counseling, I learned to listen deeply, and to trust our inherent creativity. Working with gender and liberation issues, I learned the depths of our gender conditioning, and the power of each of us to heal from it and reclaim our naturally loving hearts. Assisting at psychotherapy intensives, I learned the power of love and courage, along with skills in boundaries and personal accountability. Raising my children, I witnessed the sensual playfulness, curiosity and empowerment with which we are born, and can always re-claim. Again and again I have been inspired by our amazing resilience and brilliance. Along the way, I've gathered a few tools to help integrate body, mind, emotions, and spirit - Chiropractic, Somato-Respiratory Integration, Brain Gym, Neuro-Emotional Technique, Quantum Touch and Reiki. I've also enjoyed Authentic Movement, Contact Improvisation, Inner Dialog, Continuum Movement, Liberation Theatre, meditation, personal and group ritual, fantasy play, and massage. I bring all my skills to every situation.
The Reason I Became A Helping Professional
Much of my personal erotic growth has been through the Body Electric School. At my first workshop, 15 years ago, I learned that my sexuality was actually mine, mine, mine! Wow! I remember the sense that everything I had thought about sexuality, sensuality, gender, eros, relationship, love, connection, sex, power and spirit had been tossed up into the air to be reconfigured in a new way, which I would discover over time. It turned out to be true! I practiced and explored, continued classes, and completed the course in "Sacred Intimate Training". As assistant at many workshops, I was touched with awe and joy at helping others to step through the door of healing and self-love. In fact, it has turned out to be a passion in my life that brings me right here.
