Born & raised in England, I began my working life in London. Three years later, in 1979, I moved to New York. Four years later I moved further west to California where I have been since. I am married and have 3 adult daughters.

As a child, I had some experiences that in later life I would come to recognize as resulting from sensitivities or intuitive abilities, but which were hard to understand or explain at the time – a vivid out of body experience in school, describing the “air” (on holiday with my family) as being different when we crossed the border from Belgium into France, hearing voices talking to me as I lay in my bed to name just a few.

It was on my arrival in California that I embarked on my personal spiritual journey. It began with having a reading, followed swiftly with a meditation class, both of which were life-changing events.

Suddenly my earlier “strange” experiences had meaning and I didn’t feel I had to hide or override a natural part of myself. Since then I have been practicing the arts of meditation, healing and developing my intuitive abilities. In 1991, I entered massage school with the goal of incorporating healing into bodywork. It was at this time that I discovered my true passion – helping people recognize their unique spiritual nature within their physical body through light touch healing sessions, assisting them in re-connecting with their own awareness and information. This has since developed into Intuitive Touch Healing which I love to both practice and teach others how to do the same.

My life and travel experiences have allowed me to meet, learn about and enjoy people from many cultures and walks of life. Using this information and experience, together with my intuition, I aim to create individual healing sessions geared specifically to improving your wellness by helping you release energy that may be causing pain, stress or preventing you from achieving your goals.

Born in Fresno, a 3rd generation Californian, I have been fortunate to live here in the East Bay for most of my life. I am married with two grown children and find myself embarking on yet another “life time” within my life time.

A little over 10 years ago in the midst of building a family and career I began to feel like I was living in a tornado. Life was good, but was moving at a pace which left me feeling as if I was “missing” the essence of life while trying to keep it all going. I realized I needed to figure out how to shed the inessential in order to fully enjoy that which was essential. A good friend who had just been through a similar phase led me to Intuitive Way where I received a reading. I was so very validated and empowered by it that I soon enrolled in the meditation courses. Through meditation and the intuitive training, I found myself more able to gain clarity of choice and understanding, and why I felt what I felt. I was able to connect to my own sense of spirituality and understanding of the meaning of my life and the direction in which I wanted to take it. This is a fluid process and I continue change and grow with continued educational and meditation experiences.

After completing the meditation and graduate program, I felt intrinsically the Intuitive Touch program was for me. I had been to several of the clinics and enjoyed the results. The prospect of continuing to study spiritual energy along with physical and genetic energy was very exciting. Looking at what we bring to our lives as a spirit, in a body with specific DNA and experiential impacts is very personally empowering and most importantly, humanizing. Each of us comes to our experience with a vast array of differences but we all hold the commonality of having a life in which we are simply here to experience and grow. Creating a neutral grounded healing space in which a client is able to begin to approach their own self-understanding and healing process without judgement or recrimination and instead, bring a sense of balance, peace, validation and opportunity where there is often none, is why I enjoy the Intuitive Touch process.

As I work with clients I find that, at the very base level of healing, we are able to provide a sanctuary and space in which the client can learn to heal themselves and find their own sense of wellbeing and satisfaction. While it is simply not possible to create perfection in a body that is always changing and growing, it is possible to make room for self-direction, healing and empowerment.

I was born on Guam, a US Territory, and lived there for 8 years. I moved to Los Angeles in 1973 and to the Bay Area in 2000.

My spiritual path began when the effects of my childhood started to impact my daily life with my family and work. I began trying different paths to heal myself including a twelve step program, self-help seminar programs, spending time with a guru, getting regular psychic readings and traditional therapy.

Big life changes occurred when my husband took a new job in the Bay Area thirteen years ago. In the span of 3 years, I had another daughter, both my parents and mother in-law passed away and I went through a separation with my husband. After these events, I began to re-evaluate my life and look for information and answers on a personal level. In 2005, I found my way to Intuitive Way and had a reading which was so different from anything I had experienced before. It was about who I was as a spirit and what I was creating on my spiritual path. I wanted to learn more, and so I joined the Creative Meditation class. After each class, I had the urge to go deeper into my path and eventually went on to complete the Intuitive Training and Graduate programs. I continue to use the tools I’ve learned in class including meditating every day.

In between classes, I visited the Intuitive Touch clinics to get healings. It was at the clinics that I began to experience profound healing with my spirit and my body. The healings allowed me to be in my personal space, and to let go of whatever I was ready to release. Since I was becoming aware of the spirit and body connection and the effects of that in my space, I decided to join the Intuitive Touch program. As I went through the program, the class and the healings resonated deeply within me. Everything about the program felt familiar, as if I had done this work in a past life. After completing the program, I’ve continued my healing practice by offering private healings.

I invite everyone to experience an Intuitive Touch healing, to honor your spirit and body and to heal yourself.
