Hi, I'm Lenore.

I'm a Doctor of Social Work with expertise in evidence-based practice and program evaluation, as well as trauma and grief.

I'm also a trained evidential psychic medium.

I know grief and trauma personally: 

I lost my husband, a survivor of chronic childhood abuse, to suicide.

I also know sudden awakenings of intuitive gifts: 

My ability of psychic mediumship unexpectedly awoke when my husband passed away.

Today, I meld my research of, and practice in, Mind-Body-Spirit work, to help others heal and find light, peace, purpose, and joy — especially after surviving unfathomable trauma.

It's my purpose.

It's my life calling.

And it's my own lived experience.

My Story & My Purpose

By training, I am a researcher/practitioner from the field of Social Work. I have clinical expertise in evidence-based practice, as well as trauma and grief. My intuitive gift of psychic mediumship unexpectedly opened up with the sudden death of my husband by suicide.

 

Mind-Body-Spirit practices truly helped save my life after my husband passed, as well as open me up to purpose, my own soul, and life I deemed truly worth living. These practices include meditation, various forms of energy healing, somatic bodywork, and especially psychic mediumship (including my own). 

Today, I meld my research of, and practice in, Mind-Body-Spirit work, to help others heal and find light, peace, purpose, and joy. I do so through hands-on workshops, to teach you these methods; talks, demonstrations, and experiential collaborations with other intuitives and healers; and research and evaluation of Mind-Body-Spirit practices.

Mind-Body-Spirit methods work. They're transformative. And they live within all of us. We can access them — if we only up to the possibilities of their impact.

My mission is to help bring Mind-Body-Spirit healing — including mediumship, energy work, meditation, yoga and other practices — to the world, and help build the evidence base around these interventions, demonstrating how powerful they truly are.

Work with me. Learn with me. 

Loss of Life as I Knew It
Life Flipped Upside-Down in an Instant

A few years ago, I was a sensitive social scientist who swore by data and empirics. I was a young Doctor of Social Work, and newly-minted Associate Expert of Research and Evaluation, working for the United Nations in the field of international human development. My job, quite literally, was to collect and analyze data on whether certain interventions were real — meaning, ascertain whether or not they affected human well-being.

Want me to believe that something exists? 

 

"Give me the data, show me the evidence." That was my motto.

In terms of my character, I'd always been an empathic and intuitive person, with the keen ability to tune into people's personality and connect to their energy. I never gave it much thought beyond that, though, and took it for face value. I was a "people person," I reasoned. And that was the end of it. More important to me were the everyday nuances of a normal human life: Family, friends, partner. Career, bills, vacation. Groceries, rent, future plans, and the like.

Then, without warning, my husband — a survivor of childhood sexual abuse — unexpectedly took his life.

 

From that moment, my entire life was turned upside down.

 

In an instant, I'd undergone the most debilitating shock of my life, suddenly losing the person I loved most in the world.

At the same time that I'd lost my husband in one of the most traumatic ways possible, something else was happening: Immediately after my husband died, I began receiving messages from him in the afterlife, and soon thereafter, from other people who had passed away.

From there, everything I thought I knew and understood about life, death, and love was called into question.

My Spiritual Awakening

My ability of psychic mediumship opened up amidst unfathomable loss

The night that my husband passed, I began receiving visceral auditory, visual, and emotion-based messages from him. And after he passed, I realized that I'd been having predictive dreams and premonitions for three months prior to his passing — I just didn't understand them at the time. 

My world had been obliterated and thrust into total chaos. 

 

Not only was I thrust into the deepest sorrow and most painful loss I've ever known, I began receiving messages, signs, and insights from a dimension that I never understood, nor ever had a reason to believe existed. I spent the better part of early grief skeptical and in denial (I'm a social scientist, after all!), and at many points, I asked myself and loved ones, "am I going nuts?!" But deep down, I knew these experiences were very real  — and unlike any experience I'd ever had before.

Within a month of receiving messages and directives from my husband in Spirit (almost all of which I could verify with tangible, objective information), I was aware that I could communicate with other people in the Spirit world. As I'd later come to recognize, this was my ability of mediumship.

 

With time, I also realized my ability to "read people" was more than just a coincidence or a testament to my being a people person. 

 

For other people in the living, I soon discovered I was able to feel into the past, present, and even future points of significance in their lives. I could identify areas that needed healing, as well as see their soul path forward — reasons why they were put on this earth, and the impact they would make, both for their own well-being and for that of others. As I'd later realize, this was my psychic ability.

Soon after realizing that my newfound abilities weren't going away — rather, they were only getting stronger — I accepted that this intuitive side was now a part of me. Even more, I realized that my psychic mediumship is a beautiful gift that was helping me heal, as well as leading me to my true purpose: To blend evidence-based, scientific interventions with spiritual and intuitive ones. to help others survivors of trauma and traumatic loss heal and find their soul path forward.

Within a few months of opening up to my gifts, I began training with leading psychic mediums from the US and UK, which allowed me to unfold my intuitive abilities. I immediately saw how my background as a researcher/practitioner and Doctor of Social Work blends with my intuitive gifts.

My Work Today

I blend my scientific background with my intuitive ability of psychic mediumship and practice of Mind-Body-Spirit healing methods

Today, I meld my scientific training as a researcher and a practitioner, with my intuitive abilities and love for Mind-Body-Spirit practice, to help others find their soul path forward. My mission is to help bring Mind-Body-Spirit healing — including mediumship, energy work, meditation, yoga, and other practices — to the world, and help build the evidence base around these interventions, demonstrating how powerful they truly are.​

Mind-Body-Spirit practices truly helped save my life after my husband passed, as well as open me up to purpose, my own soul, and life I deemed truly worth living. These practices include meditation, yoga, various forms of energy healing, somatic bodywork, and especially psychic mediumship (including my own). 

Today, I meld my research of, and practice in, Mind-Body-Spirit work, to help others heal and find light, peace, purpose, and joy. I do so through hands-on workshops, to teach you these methods; talks, demonstrations, and experiential collaborations with other intuitives and healers; and research and evaluation of Mind-Body-Spirit practices.

These methods work. They're transformative. And they live within all of us. Transformation and soul-centered insight are available to us all, if we only open ourselves up.​

Please note: At this time, I do not see clients on a one-on-one basis. See my Resources page for recommendations for credible mediums, or see my blog article on finding mental health assistance and spiritual guidance for trauma and grief.

The Scientific Side of my Approach

It is my view that to treat trauma, we can't "talk it out" or plan our healing in an analytical, lockstep fashion. Instead, we must feel into how our trauma and pain reside in our bodies, and then gradually process and release them over time. We do this by reframing how our minds understand ourselves and our trauma, and by engaging in somatic (i.e. mind/body/spirit) methods that go beyond the conscious mind.

​​

From the scientific side, I draw heavily on evidence-based mind/body/spirit interventions rooted in somatic psychology, which hinges on the notion that trauma is housed in the body, rather than the analytical mind.

The mind/body/spirit methods I use include meditation, breathwork, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT or "tapping"), yoga, and Reiki and spiritual energy healing, and automatic and channeled writing, among others.

 

The Spiritual Side of my Approach

On the spiritual and intuitive side, it is my belief (and experience) that facing our trauma can prompt a deep spiritual awakening — an opening up to who we truly are, what our purpose on this earth is, and what our pain and suffering mean with regard to that purpose. By tuning into our trauma, and engaging in healing in a way that feels right, the hold our pain has over us loosens, and our connection with our soul (our true self) is awakened.

 

Once we are able to tune into our soul and our intuition (the mouthpiece of our soul), a beautiful world of true meaning and purpose unfolds. It is in this space that we begin to understand our purpose and path (our dharma) and what our soul is meant to learn in life (our karma). It is here that we also tune into our own inner knowing, and even discover the intuitive gifts that we may have, but not yet realize we possess. 

To help clients open up this connection to soul, I engage my intuitive gifts of psychic mediumship, as well as guide clients to tuning into their own intuition and gifts (we all have them!).

 

Specifically, I use my psychic abilities to read clients' points of pain from the past, present, and even future; identify opportunities for healing, growth, and expansion; and help them hone in on their true path forward — the path that feels, wholly and completely, theirs. All in all, when I use my psychic skills, it is to connect to the client, and provide guidance on their life and soul path.

My mediumship abilities work a bit differently. When I use my mediumship, it is to tune into and connect with people on the Other Side — meaning people who have passed away, and are no longer among the physically living. Many clients who seek mediumship readings have navigated grief and the loss of a loved one. Connecting to their loved ones on the Other Side provides evidence that they're always with us, which usually aids the healing process, as well as provides insight on our path forward after loss. Other clients who come for mediumship readings are curious about the Other Side, and seek insight and support from their people in Spirit. (We all have a team of people on the Other Side who support us every day!)

My background in research is very much a part of my work as a psychic medium. I keep detailed records of all of my experiences with the Spirit world, constantly consider alternative explanations, and keep up-to-date on the growing body of research on metaphysics and the afterlife. I also encourage my clients to do the same.

My Overall Objective

My approach is to guide my clients through a process, which blends data-driven, evidence-based, scientific approaches, with a hands-on exploration and development of our intuitive and spiritual selves, and connection to the higher energies that support us — but that we may not always see.

The end-goal of my approach is to guide clients through a process of healing and awakening at mind, body, and soul levels. This process is life-changing, transformational, and the beginning of a new way of seeing the world and living in it — a way that is deeply fulfilling, truly joyful, and authentically, uniquely, fully yours.

I look forward to working with you.
