About Me

Over the years, I have been intrigued by paranormal, metaphysical and spiritual concepts.  As a child, I remember having a recurring experience I could never explain.  Also during that time, I had recurring dreams.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have anyone in my life to explain these things to me and didn’t realize they may be suggestive of something greater.  So, like many, I simply pushed these experiences down.  As a teen, my interest was again renewed, but not enough to fully grasp the depth of the metaphysical or the patience for the spiritual aspects.

As an adult, I pursued the field of psychology, not realizing that the path was simply a stepping stone to the bigger picture.  I graduated with a Doctoral Degree in Counseling Psychology and soon opened my private practice.  As a licensed psychologist, I work primarily with children, adults, and families for a number of issues including anxiety, depression, stress, relationship problems, behavioral issues, ADHD, and divorce and custody, for example.

In 2010, I encountered a renewed interest in the paranormal, metaphysical, and spiritual realms.  Indeed, over the past couple of years, I have had the privilege of working with children and adults who have experienced paranormal phenomena, those who seek a more spiritual path, and those interested in metaphysical concepts.  In 2011, I published the first book in my Shadows of Destiny Saga, a series about a young lady with abilities most people don’t understand.  To date, the series includes two novels and two short stories.  Within the pages of these books, you will find paranormal, metaphysical, and spiritual concepts presented in the form of a fiction novel.  I did this to appeal to a broader range of readers who may find the material dry and difficult to follow.

In the Spring of 2013, during a family trip to the Mediterranean, I became interested in Spiritual travel and the exploration of other cultures.  I joined Gail Thackray on a tour of Sacred France in July 2014 and found myself deeply connected to this type of travel.  I hope to host spiritual tours for those with similar interests in the near future.  Other spiritual trips over the past two years have included Scotland and England, Turkey, Croatia, Italy, and Greece.  It is truly an amazing and inspiring world in which we live.

In Fall 2015, I will release a newly published book that I have co-written with a dear friend, Karen Lovero.  It is our greatest hope that our readers will be able to gain valuable insight to help them rediscover their purpose in life, learn to forgive, and begin to create the life they were meant to live.  Following the book's publication, we plan to host workshops to help those who want more intense guidance on these premises.

In the midst of all of these exciting experiences, I continue to be actively committed to my patients and their families and the process of learning.  I look forward to expanding my practice to include more work with meditation, regression, and progressive relaxation, as well as the introduction of the Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) into my practice soon.  EFT utilizes the Chinese meridian system to address emotional issues, and like meditation and relaxation, this technique is founded upon an ancient holistic approach to well-being that is grounded in the mind-body connection.

To learn more, I invite you to take a look inside my world, peruse the pages of this site, and above all else, live each day with your heart wide open.
