As a successful Mind-Body Psychologist, Consultant, Author and Self Mastery Business Coach, I have been dedicated to supporting adults, couples and families for over 31 years. I have been very fortunate to have an abundant private practice for 24 years in Santa Fe, New Mexico while I raised my two children as a single mother. My degrees are a B.S. in Biological Psychology at the UCSB in 1986 and then a M.A. and Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology at the University for Humanistic Studies in 1994.
My approach is a multidisciplinary and heart-centered, combining my clinical psychology background with mind-body wellness, spirituality, and a variety of embodiment teachings. Early on I apprenticed with Don Miguel Ruiz, the author of the The Four Agreements for 8 years who kindly declared me “A Master who walks her talk.” I have been cultivating a deeper relationship with the Sacred Feminine in the past few years that has been incredibly potent and powerful for myself and my clients. I also love to draw on current scientific research as well to support my work and programs. And my own life-healing experiences and spiritual growth help me mentor women with similar empathic and sensitivity issues as business owners. I have walked the path from great suffering to serenity and know what it takes.
It is also important to me to create environments of mutuality and respect that infuses trust, care and reverence in my collaborations with others. People say that my “accessible, intuitive and kind presence is engaging and highly supportive” whether in one to one, group or course related frameworks.
My business is now called Self mastery Business Coaching. I help women in business learn and apply these teaching and practical tools for empowerment, balance and success in their lives, businesses and leadership.
I offer this work in five primary ways: 1) through products like My Book , meditations and Online Courses and 2) through Sacred Feminine Embodiment classes, Retreats and Trainings and 3) through Live Events and Retreats 4) a membership program for women to have sacred, safe space to grow, connect and evolve and 5) Self Mastery Business Coaching Group Programs for women entrepreneurs.
It is my honor to serve and mentor you.

My Personal Journey
As a very young child, I was very sensitive and aware, I felt both a spiritual connectedness with nature, and overwhelmed with the anxious feelings from my chaotic family. I became conscious that life was hard for people and I always in a rush to grow up and help people.I didn’t know how or why but it was very strong.
As a child, I began absorbing more of the fear and disconnection that our culture permeates. And was becoming more depressed and anxious, By the age of 12, I was feeling suicidal and that life was too much, but never told anyone, I had this lucid experience where I intuited that my life would be a very difficult journey until later in life, when I would finally return to my true “Self” which indeed was what happened. My path was about being a seeker, learner of life, spirituality and wellbeing from early on.
My story included a generational history of the family disease of alcoholism, codependency and neglect. I went through years of depression and chronic anxiety, unhappy relationships. I had mentally/emotionally narcisstic-abusive marriage. I suffered severe perinatal mood disorder and PTSD episodes during the pregnancy and postpartum with both children. And I faced major health challenges with inflammation and Hashimotos disease. I had no real help from family or friends. Parenting became a spiritual path when I decided to commit to not pass on the unhealthy ancestral patterns and issues and cultivate my faith and trust in the Universe.
Working hard to not just “survive” a brutal divorce and 18 intense years of single-parenting my two children, I was devoted to growing and healing the best I could. I utilized many psychological, spiritual and mind-body modalities and teachers to help heal and transform myself.
I started my business in the midst of it all to take care of my kids. As a “sensitive,” I had to develop serious self care and deep spiritual growth to be able to not just get through it all, but grow and evolve past the drama. I was determined to acquire peace, sanity, health and wellbeing as well as business success. I also knew I needed to consciously create a new version of success that was aligned with who I was and my true values, or I would just be in more chaos again. And I had already been through enough.
Then ovarian cancer showed up in 2014 became another powerful doorway to further my learning to fully accepting myself, my body and my soul path. My kids were already in challenging teenage years and struggling with their own mental heath issues from the traumatic early years we all went through. Everything escalated with the fear that I might die. It became a clear to me that all the stress I endured in the past mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually was manifesting in this cancer. And I had a clear decision to make to stay or leave. I chose to stay and continue my job as a mother and my soul service.
Looking back, I can see the lessons I signed up for so clearly. I feel incredibly blessed to feel awake, authentic and thriving today. And now I am even more dedicated to helping women not just survive, but evolve and really thrive in their lives and businesses. Namaste.
