My life work (Light Work) is devoted toward helping people see clearly, in living Technicolor, that you are the light of the world made manifest. For over 35 years, I have been exploring, learning and mastering subjects that could support me in my endeavor to drive this simple fact home in any way that made sense to the seeker.


My initiation into the subtle world of energy healing came at an early age when I studied the art of Hand Analysis. Additional initiations then came fast and furiously as I studied and mastered Astrology and Numerology – all extraordinary tools.  


Thriving on that which is balanced and beautiful, I next wove Interior Decorating into my tapestry of skills. As I grew in understanding and compassion, doors opened for me in several healing modalities – color therapy, the ability to channel the life-affirming messages of Angels and Ascended Masters, the ancient wisdom of the I Ching: A Book of Changes, Pranic Healing, Crystal Healing and communication with the Mineral Kingdom - each new discipline was intertwined with the wisdom of the Laws of the Universe. In turn, these Laws or Principles brought a greater depth, clarity and strength to my work.
