Native to San Francisco, I have been an educator, school counselor, therapist, consultant, sacred process teacher, spiritual counselor, poet and writer for over 40 years. I hold graduate
degrees in Counseling Psychology, and Educational Leadership, Certificates in Poetry Therapy and Reality Therapy, and a Ph.D. in Expressive Therapies. At the University of
Massachusetts-Dartmouth I was lead faculty in a grant-funded program for secondary educators. At Lesley University I taught graduate level research in the context of creative process and
supervised Expressive Therapies thesis studies.
I developed The Resilience Path as a process of spiritual counseling, contemplation, reflection and interaction for those who seek to reframe physical, psychological and spiritual health and
well-being. As a lay contemplative, I engage the wondrous and mysterious workings of The Sacred. My relentless optimism and extensive training enable me to be creative and focused in a context
of unconditional regard for all who undertake this holy endeavor.
I have dedicated my work to addressing these Essential Questions: "How do we come to know and fulfill our life purpose? How is our intention influenced? How might we return to
The Source and access forces of renewal always at hand when we remove the barriers?"
I am drawn to this ageless task: Be Still and Know.
As guide and teacher, I understand prayer, meditation and creative expression to be ways of sensing what is essential and to discern what is not. The Sacred needs no proof. It may
only be offered...and received. The Sacred will be recognized when each of us has prepared and opened for regeneration. We practice to strengthen neglected or devalued sensitivity and
affirm our cooperation with The Source.
