"I can't believe that!" said Alice...One can't believe impossible things."


    "I daresay you haven't had much practice," said the Queen. "When I was your age, I always did it for half-an-hour a day."

         

 Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast."

A bit of my biography . . .

Stories and human development have been at the core of my personal and professional life. I have always been compelled by the intricacies of human nature and the dynamics of human relationship. I crave integrity. My driving question is always what lays within and beyond: what is asking to be born?

I earned my B.S. in Child Development. I did my graduate work in the UK in Biographical Counselling, a soul-spiritual psychology which serves not only as a path of self knowledge, but also as a path of personal and spiritual development.  The training had a life transforming quality and further prepared me to meet another person in their totality. It offered new avenues for discovery.  I have also studied and trained in a number of other modalities (see SERVICES/provide link?) The commonality among them is that each serve to access our innate intelligence beyond our small self/ego, the parts and the stories we tell ourselves, making it possible to reach into greater depths. Pursuing this work has revealed a host of inner resources that serve to inform and guide my way. 

I have served children in many capacities; as a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate for youth in the hands of child services), as a tutor, a mentor, a teacher. I have trailed along with Private Investigators into some fairly dark corners.

I spent over a decade as Director of Story Development with an independent film company at Warner Bros. pictures. My passion and imagination for the work came out of my fascination with human motivation

 

Fundamentally, I believe we are each and all on a journey of development and that our personal and collective evolution is not only asking, but requires us to participate consciously. I find it moving, magical, inspiring to uncover our truths, discover who we are and who we are being invited to become. This is the gift, the challenge and the calling of what it is to be human.

    was that girl that everybody told their secrets to. My circle was diverse; my friends came in all shapes, sizes and colors. I was accepting, supportive, compassionate, trustworthy. I had that slight twinkle in my eye; a bit of irreverance mixed with a sense of adventure. I pushed boundaries. I was interested. I still am.
