"The most beautiful people are those who have known defeat, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These people have an appreciation, a sensitivity and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness and a deep, loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen."
- Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
I have an innate, intuitive capacity for identifying, verbalizing and clearing energy patterns that sabotage health and well-being. This expanded, vibrational perception, developed over a lifetime of exploration and training, allows me to co-create with clients a healing space that dissolves dis-ease and invites The True Self to emerge and radiate.
I've always known it to be ACTUALLY possible to experience an exceptionally evolving quality of life. It's with great excitement that now every day, I see this knowing realized through clients' incredible breakthroughs at Peace On Earth I.N.C., my integrative vibrant life practice.
I've been a Seeker, Change Agent, passionate student/practitioner of consciousness-healing-metaphysics-mysticism-the esoteric-optimal health-human potential-all things transformational my entire life - read Transcendental Meditation, EST, martial arts and The Course in Miracles before the age of 18. I started to formalize my thirst for training in the transpersonal and optimal health and well being in the early 90's when I began studying Complementary and Alternative Health at The University of Vermont.
There I was introduced to powerful frameworks and teachers that deeply inform my integrative teaching and private practice today in a broad exposure to energy medicine and healing touch therapies: Evolutionary Astrology; Yoga; Buddhism and Buddhist psychology; Mindfulness training; Herbalism - both Western and Chinese and Chinese Medicine with an emphasis on applying Chinese medical theory to diet and nutrition.
I went on to study Transpersonal Psychology at Burlington College, VT, the interface of psychology and spirituality, which explores optimal health, self-realization and the development of full human potential.
In 1995 I completed the residential Yoga Teacher Training Certification at Kripalu Center in Lenox, MA and the Advanced Yoga Teacher Training with Erich Schiffmann in California.
Between 1995 and 2005, I was a founding member of All That Matters, Wakefield, RI, what is still one of New England's premier yoga and holistic education centers today. There I taught yoga and meditation full time and was instrumental in developing the yoga program which now boasts yoga teacher trainings and ~ 60 yoga classes per week.
Like a kid in a candy store, during that decade I had incredible access to an endless stream of master healers and teachers at all of the finest holistic learning centers in the region: All That Matters, Kripalu Center, Omega Institute and Karme Choling in the fields of Yoga, Buddhism/Mindfulness, Shamanism, all variations of vibrational/energy medicine technologies and the healing arts.

I feel like a great guide needs to intimately know the terrain - I appreciate my formal education, though the rubber really meets The Universal Road in my own direct experience.
I've had rigorous on-the-job training coming to terms with my own unique extra-sensory gifts and capacities. This has included transmuting great levels of existential pain, depression, chronic fatigue and generational baggage, especially as it has related to family dynamics of alcoholism.
From 2006 - 2010 a most concentrated period of a sort of trial-by-fire healing practicum took place when I chose to leave the center in RI to care for my then undiagnosed, terminally ill mother and 92 year old grandmother in the mountains of Big Canoe, Ga. If you think you're enlightened, go be a live-in caregiver for your family for four years in the Southern mountains! <);-0
I continued to teach yoga during those care giving years, but more forefront to my experience was that family circumstances required I advance my fluency in transformational energy medicine techniques and human potential/consciousness studies = on-the-job training.
I spent time with my mother in Brazil with the world famous medium healer, John of God and continued studies with my teachers in Vermont and California.
As a result, directly proportionate to my own lifelong experience and willingness to continually transform my own pain and limitations using the tools and techniques I'm gathering along the way, I'm able to dynamically help others to unravel the patterns - body-mind-heart-soul - that don't work for them. With my healing colleagues I'm known for my 'heavy-lifting' capacities in the healing arena.
From my grandmother's and mother's passing to present I have been creating my work in Georgia, which currently includes a private holistic coaching practice specializing in unconscious pattern release and energy realignment, ongoing yoga and meditation programs, specialty workshops/retreats, custom blended Flower Essences and an aromatherapy line.
The tapestry of my 25 years of training and work in the field of transformational heath, my innate ability to track unconscious energy patterns, combined with my advanced training in transformational tools, techniques and body processes = forms an elite, beyond result-producing delivery system the likes of which I've always dreamed about in the realization of maximal aliveness.
The foundation of my work is knowing that the momentum of a flourishing planet grows one thriving individual at a time; when we consciously align and shine, we can be the unique Service to the world that we are meant to be.
"As we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others." - Marianne Williamson
