I taught writing, literature, and women's studies for 13 years. I chose literature as a way to not choose- literature is everything people are.  My academic work focused on women's images in the media and how they impact sense of self. When I started coaching, it was as an academic coach at a medical school. After a few wonderful years, I went into business for myself so I could fold folktales into my practice and teach the workshops I'd always dreamed of. 

Officially ordained, I am able to facilitate the ceremonies that mark the milestone events of your life in a way that is personally meaningful for you and your loved ones.


Certified Life-Cycle Celebrant by the Celebrant Foundation Institute, specializing in Weddings, Funerals, and Healing & Transition Ceremonies.

Certified Celebrant and Practitioner of the Miracle Tree Way developed by Brianna Saussy.

I teach clients the process that I used to overcome physical, sexual, emotional and spiritual abuse, rape, and depression and shake off the patterns that held me in a place of victimhood and get into the driver's seat of my own life.  I have a deep talent for finding the kernel of the issue that is shooting weeds through your whole garden and getting it up and out.  The work is deep and intuitive, powerful and transforming.

A Certified Master Practitioner, I am officially certified to administer and interpret the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) . As the only personality test that's data-driven, the MBTI is a fantastic tool for personal, professional,  and academic coaching to help you (and your family) understand yourself and others and how to better work, communicate, and deal with stressors.  Find out more about my work with the MBTI at www.mbtiways.com

I am currently studying under Dr. Daniel Foor to become a practitioner of Ancestral Medicine lineage healing process.  I will be authorized to begin accepting appointments in November of 2020.
