As the cofounder of a successful multinational consulting firm, my A+ business skills translated into a big fat F when it came to love, communicating from the heart, and being true to myself. On the outside, I appeared to have it all, but on the inside, I felt empty and confused, especially when it came to romance.
I was born as a natural intuitive, empath, and medium who thought everyone was born with these same helpful abilities. When I realized this wasn’t the case, I remained quietly in the closet and only supported others in response to direct requests. These profound experiences created a burning desire to better understand and develop these abilities to support as many people as I could.
This led me to travel and study with master teachers from diverse wisdom traditions around the world. Through a lens of multicultural perspectives, I explored different religions and spiritual teachings and eventually lived in India to study yoga and ancient Vedantic wisdom at its source. I became certified as a meditation and yoga teacher, as well a practitioner in various indigenous healing art traditions. My inner transformational work provided me with clarity and confidence to embrace a more meaningful career focused on guiding and supporting others. Ironically, as soon as I made this significant career change, I noticed a book on display at a local store with a picture of a “mandala” on its cover, a round symmetrical symbol similar to those that I had “doodled” since early childhood. Never having seen the word “mandala” before, I purchased the book and discovered that these symbols have been used since ancient times for healing in almost every tradition around the world. Soon thereafter, I received inner guidance during meditation to create hand painted healing mandalas and sell them, which to my surprise I did successfully. I took this as a sign that I was finally on my rightful path…
I created programs based on my experiences, led meditation groups, did private coaching, facilitated community dialogues and taught conflict resolution tools. In 2001, I volunteered with Dr. Oz to bring healing arts practices into hospital systems as an integrative approach in treating cancer patients, which are still in place today. Ever deepening my understanding of universal truths that commonly intersect throughout various wisdom traditions, in 2004, I was invited by Dr. Michael Bernard Beckwith to attend the Synthesis Dialogues in Italy with His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other spiritual leaders from around the world.
My ambition and intuitive abilities contributed to my professional success but ironically, NOT when it came to romance.
In fact, shortly after I got married and moved away to start a new life, my marriage blew up. I was left alone in a new city and state, without family or a home, and only 58 cents in my bank account. I realized the hard way that it was time to reengineer myself, change my approach to romance, completely honor my intuitive abilities, and rebuild my life.
I dove into a deep commitment to better understand my worth as a woman, healthier relationship dynamics, and how to be more discerning in choosing a partner. I researched and embodied the ancient secrets of polarity to bring out the best of the masculine and feminine essence within myself and in my partner. In addition to the healing arts, I also became a certified trainer of various communication and conflict resolution methods and graduated as a licensed new thought spiritual leader. I synthesized different traditions that are otherwise taught separately, and this unique approach caught on in my professional programs, as well as in my personal life.
I healed, got clear, and honed my new skills. During that time, I met Paul, and we became friends. After several years, it became crystal clear that we were the right match for each other. Now married and using the Breakthrough Living Tools that I created and that we teach together, we continue to build our journey of love on a strong foundation of trust, honesty, and intimacy.
It's my deepest passion to share all that I've learned to guide you to experience the life you want and the love you deserve.
Back in high school, I read a book that demonstrated how modern quantum physics mirrored the ancient wisdom traditions of the east. I was fascinated by how western science and eastern thought were merging. So, in college, I decided to major in philosophy with the hope that it would further my understanding, and ultimately help me live a more meaningful life. While it honed my critical thinking skills and provided me with a different perspective on life, it didn’t offer me practical skills or guidance I needed to build a life that served my deepest desires. I resonated with eastern philosophy, but since I didn’t see myself as a monk or living in a cave, I didn’t know how to apply this wisdom… And, once out of college, the “real” world took over.
I lived a life that was expected of me—I got married, bought a house, had kids, and established a career—first in civil rights, and then in environmental cleanup projects. Later, I was ready to break out on my own and I shifted careers to financial services and eventually established my own independent financial planning and wealth management firm.
But just when I thought I had “arrived,” my personal life imploded. An unexpected divorce accompanied by challenges with raising my children caught me off guard, and I was uncertain how to move forward. Professionally, I wanted to make a deeper impact than to solely guide people with their financial life. I also realized it was time for me to go beyond my head and get to know my heart so I could live the next chapter of my life differently. I decided to take bold action and redirected my personal and professional life!
Making change wasn’t always easy, yet doing so led me to experiences I never would have imagined. I discovered transformative teachings and practices that no philosophy professor ever taught me in school. I began a new romantic relationship with Denise (who became my wife) and created a deep intimate connection that I always longed for but wasn’t sure was really possible.
I studied diverse wisdom traditions that continue to make a profound difference in my life today, not only in my connection with Denise, but in all of my relationships. I travelled to India and committed to live a more holistic and modern yogic lifestyle. I discovered a path that didn’t ask me to stand on my head, twist myself into a pretzel, or just to “believe” something intangible, but instead provided me with positive life-changing experiences that simultaneously made sense to my logical intellect. I sold my business and cofounded LOVE. LIFE. WISDOM. with Denise to guide committed individuals to experience The Life They Want and The Love They Deserve.
As a guide, I come to the work having tried the familiar path that I once thought would lead me to happiness and fulfillment but didn't.
I share from personal experience and wisdom, not from an academic or theoretical perspective. I provide guidance from a deeply grounded approach without anything airy-fairy about it. I’m eager to help you discover your path to live a more meaningful and joyful life by supporting you with the wisdom, tools and practices to experience greater happiness and connection in your life and in your relationships—without requiring you to go live in a cave!
