I provide guidance for experienced personal growth explorers who are yearning for clarity around their life purpose or next steps. I do this through intuitive readings, past life regression, and hypnotherapy.

Other: You didn’t ask me about chocolate: hazelnut milk chocolate holds a place of honour in my world.
What’s the best part for you of being part of yoUnlimited? Being around women who are willing to take time out for themselves and who share the view that sisterhood is fundamental to happiness and success!
What is your favourite place in the world? Paris – do I have to explain why? I spent half a year living there going to cooking school. When I arrived I could barely make a passable grilled cheese sandwich. But I’m the type of gal who always wants to turn the ‘awesome’ up to 11 – Who needs cookbooks when there’s Paris?!
Favourite Books: The Power of Myth with Joseph Campbell, by Bill Moyers. I saw this on public television when I was barely ten years old. Then I read the book in the 9th grade and continue to revisit it every five years or so. As I move through my life, on my own ‘hero’s journey’, I appreciate the universality of Campbell’s insights in a more deeply personal way. It’s a comfort to know that there IS a pattern and there ARE time-tested methods for navigating the inevitable will towards consciousness.
What qualities do you admire in others: Courage. It takes true bravery and maturity to move along the path of the seeker. To open up to life beyond words and the realm of inner knowing, to deal with our dark. To declare that we have a spiritual life in this age when the base and the secular have been elevated to sacred, and the ego informs most of society. It really does take courage to tackle the bigger questions and I really appreciate that quality most in others.
What’s on your bucket list? Move back to Paris!
What is your favourite activity? Gardening with my sexy man and my extremely cool daughter in our backyard.
If you could only do one thing, what would that be? Do intuitive readings and regression work. Could I lead a hypno-birthing class as well?
What is the best advice you have ever received? Hereditary Chief Leonard George, son of Chief Dan George, once told me the lovely story that his celebrated father shared with him on his wedding day. The main theme is “Sometimes you just have to pull the canoe ashore” – meaning that when the river narrows and the pressure is building, it’s ok to just stop struggling. To take care of yourself, nourish yourself, build up your strength, take in the landscape and plan. You don’t have to take on everything that comes at you all at once just because it has shown up. Pace yourself. There’s no shame in making sure you are well prepared and ready first. As women, I think we often find ourselves believing that we have to jump on opportunities as offered. We don’t often consider – let alone ASK – whether we could adjust the terms to work better for us. I learned from Leonard that it’s ok, and often wiser, to just slow down.
