Not only has the healing process I offer helped change the lives of those I've worked with for the last 20+ years; it's radically transformed my own life as well.
I’m a recovering perfectionist and workaholic. For years I drove myself relentlessly in an attempt to accomplish specific (and impossible) goals that were heavily influenced by the blind beliefs of our culture which I adopted as my own – idyllic marriage, faultless parenting, stellar career performance, extraordinary academic achievement. I led a very head-oriented, fear-based way of life and was extremely critical of myself and others. Also, for decades I struggled with the fear of being alone. This element strongly contributed to my relationship addiction, causing me to hide in some extremely toxic, abusive relationships and marriages.
The revolutionary news is that not only has the healing process I offer helped change the lives of those I've worked with for the last 20+ years; it's radically transformed my own life as well.
As a shamanic guide and counselor, my approach to healing is a potent blend of learning from my personal journey and professional experience, my master's degree in sociology of women, and more than 6 years of Ka Ta See counseling study with Ken Robinson, a Ka Ta See elder. Ka Ta See (which means "thriving in balance from the heart") is a shamanic tradition of healing and storytelling that originated in Peru more than 50,000 years ago. It is a way of being that is based on unconditional love and acceptance for ourselves and others.
I've lived in the Santa Fe, New Mexico area since 2010.
