Melding science and spirit.
Welcoming joy, light, and transformation.

I am a Dr. of Social Work and a practitioner and researcher, with expertise in trauma, grief, intuitive awakenings, and brain/body/spirit healing, as well as evaluation and evidence-based practice. I use a grounded science-meets-spirit approach to help people process trauma, pain, and stuckness, and open up to a life of joy, emotional freedom, and intuitive connection. ​Previously, I worked in evaluation research and community development with international organizations, including the United Nations.  ​In 2020, my late husband suddenly passed away. He died by warningless suicide — meaning, he showed no obvious signs that he was suffering prior to ending his life. His passing was a total shock. Immediately after he passed, my intuitive ability of mediumship awoke. I trained and practiced as a professional medium, leaning into my newly discovered intuitive abilities and connection to my late husband. As my most powerful guide through deep trauma and complex grief, these connections led me down a path of myriad somatic, spiritual, mind/body, and energy-based healing techniques.  On that path, I discovered Brainspotting, a fast-acting, deeply effective brain/body modality for trauma, and a derivative of EMDR. In just one session, it completely changed my experience with trauma, grief, and the stronghold they had over my life, far surpassing the impact of any other modality I had tried, both in depth of healing, and in staying power. Through Brainspotting, combined with my connection to my intuitive self, my world shifted to one that is expansive, joyful, present, and profoundly alive. Brainspotting impacted me so much that I became trained in the modality, enabling me to help others in tremendously transformative ways. ​My work today blends scientific methods from the fields of neuroscience, social work, and psychology, with the spiritual world and intuitive practices. My goal is to blend science with spirit to help people move through pain and trauma, and connect to their own soul, light, purpose, and joy. ​Whether it's traumatic loss or adverse childhood experiences that you are navigating, or feelings of stuckness, hopelessness, insecurity, being not good enough, perfectionism, anxiety, or depression, my blended approach of working with the deep brain plus opening up to one's soul, spirit, and intuition offers profound healing of the past alongside an expansive, positive opening to the future.

"Science and spirituality are not at odds. They actually work beautifully together, balancing and informing one another, if we only get curious about how this happens and have an open mind about what our inquiries may find."
