A: For the first time my professional choices were like a downstream cruise instead of an upstream battle. Before becoming an energy healer, I struggled to work in entry level corporate positions. I was miserable, discombobulated and swearing at my panty hose. Anytime I worked in a job that had to do with alternative healing, I felt exhilarated and intrigued and the opportunities were simply appearing on my path.
Q: What keeps you engaged in your profession?
A: My clients keep me engaged. Working with them helps me feel the passion of being alive.
They are rock star warriors who take a stand for their well-being. Also, doing intuitive healing work is how I’m wired. I was adopted when I was born. I found my biological family when I was 20, which had been a goal of mine since I was 5. It turned out my biological mother was an entrepreneur and a psychic in Southern California. When I initially contacted her, she told me she was “waiting for my call.” It’s an intriguing story, but being sensitive has its challenges, believe me.
Q: What kind of clients do you like working with most?
A: I work with:
- Adults who are motivated to heal, learn about themselves and grow in the process.
- Moms and dads who are struggling with parenting.
- Adults struggling with their sexuality and gender identity.
- People who are ready to unearth and shift unproductive patterns.
- Adults who are open to healing their past and moving forward.
- People experiencing family of origin problems.
- Adoptees struggling with personal identity issues.
- People who currently resonate with the concepts of rejection, abandonment, humiliation, betrayal and injustice and want to feel an innate sense of significance, security and belonging.
- People who are being treated for anxiety and depression and want to utilize a complementary therapy alongside their medical treatment.
Q: What are you currently working on in your professional life?
A: Currently I’m working on integrating everything I’ve learned in the past 30+ years, to provide my clients with a complete healing experience.
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Cannolis are fabulous. They’re an Italian pastry; you probably know that, but apparently I “missed the memo” about this delicacy. I had my first one in Times Square in 1999 and screamed, “These are amazing! Everybody needs to know about cannolis!” I felt like I’d discovered one of the seven wonders of the world and should have been on that huge TV screen yelling.
Q: What is your favorite beverage?
A: I love flights of complex wines. I think it’s the tiny glasses that make it fun. I used to have this 7-up machine when I was little, where you’d basically put glass bottles in a holder and use a spout to pour tiny glasses of pop. My friend Trissa and I would make it a day-long adventure of walking to the neighborhood grocery, buying bottles of pop (possibly dropping one on the way home due to our giggles) and then viola’! Tiny glasses with liquid. I sound very European, having favorites of tiny wine and filled pastries.
Q: How do you spend your free time?
A: I look for exotic places to travel to or move. It makes my husband laugh. I recently saw a TV news story about the planet Mars and out of habit I said, “We should move there!”
Q: How do you celebrate living in your body?
A: I dance! I dance like Elaine on Seinfeld. More than one person has told me this.
Q: What do you look for in a health care practitioner?
A: I look for someone who knows their stuff; is educated, experienced, a good listener and has an open heart. I remember when I finally got pregnant with my daughter and my “rather stiff” specialist had me listen to her heartbeat for the first time. I had to sit on my hands and bite my lips, so I wouldn’t scream and hug him. I didn’t care about his “personal skills,” he was kind in his generosity of Spirit. I wanted to name my daughter after him.
