About and Connect
As a mother of a child with autism, I have firsthand experience traveling a path of pain, disappointment, anger, guilt, grief, and feeling disconnected from relationships in my life. With the guidance of some very wise teachers, I found my hot track through a portal of pain and moved through to the other side.
Through my personal work my thoughts shifted. I discovered my freedom and I continue to practice and integrate new awareness and embrace life with love and compassion. It is my purpose to teach and show other the powerful tools and strategies so they may reconnect with their inner guidance system and find their own path through the portal and lead their life in peace and love.
I earned a B.S. degree in Computer Science from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, lived and worked in Sydney, Australia for nearly four years in the 90′s and worked for several software companies in sales and marketing before starting a family.
To further expand my education, I studied with master life coach, best-selling author and Oprah magazine columnist, Dr. Martha Beck, horse whisperer and life coach, Koelle Simpson, and Healthy-Life Mind-Body Coach, Abigail Steidley. I include at the foundation of my coaching practice “The Work” by Byron Katie.
For the last nine years I’ve raised two boys with my husband in Los Gatos, CA. Our oldest son, Ian, has autism and he is my greatest teacher. Our boys inspire me to be my best self and on the days when I’m less than, I do my best to forgive myself. I want to bring more love into this world and shine the light on the goodness. I survived in the darkness, now I thrive in the light. My mission is to help individuals who are suffering to discover freedom from their pain and see a different way of being.
