— About Me —
Wouldn’t it be nice if you had a confidential advisor with psychic abilities?
Here I am.
And here’s who I am.
How did I get into this work?
How does a woman who went to college prep school and studied sociology in graduate school go from a first career in journalism and then 20 years with nonprofit organizations to….being a professional psychic?
Well. I’ve always been a rational, analytical thinker with a maverick streak. Just ask anyone who’s known me. What people didn’t know about me was that all my life I’ve had mystical experiences that I rarely talked about. You can join my contact list to learn more about that.
In 1990 I sustained a back injury in a car accident. Mainstream medicine did nothing for me, so I turned to “alternative” healing modalities. My first acupuncturist was also one of Mantak Chia’s original U.S. instructors and she introduced me to Daoist meditation and qigong.
I never set out to become psychic. But I noticed over the years doing Taoist practices that certain abilities were growing. So, when life circumstances caused me to retire from 20 years work as an organizational leader and consultant, I looked for a way to make a living from home on my own schedule.
With great trepidation, I signed up for one of the national psychic websites and started giving telephone readings. I got great feedback from customers, and I’ve been giving psychic readings professionally ever since.
Yes, energy is a part of it
Part of my job is to assist you in nonverbal ways. I use my embodied presence and understanding of energy work to facilitate you stepping into a calmer, stronger space.
I’m not trying to change your energy. In fact, nothing I do is about fixing you. It’s about contributing to your own ability to better manage your work-a-day world. I strive to manage my own energy and radiate it in a manner that supports you in shifting into the energetic state you need.
Ultimately, the goal of our session is to help you align with the best version of yourself.
Student of Systems Theory
Systems Theory Helps Explain Workplace Dynamics
“No man is an island.” Including at work.
Bowen Family Systems Theory identifies eight variables that determine how anxiety travels through systems as disparate as human families, workplaces, or groups of animals. Founded by psychiatrist Dr. Murray Bowen as a science-based analysis of the family, Bowen Theory has been widely applied to organizations.
Sometimes I am prompted by my own guidance to incorporate Bowen Theory into readings. When you understand the dynamics within your organization, you can understand what the implications of your actions might be. Many of my clients find Bowen Theory helpful as they map out next steps.
I started learning Bowen Family Systems Theory in the 1990s during ten years of private work with a Bowen therapist in upstate New York, working on family, personal and workplace relationships. Inspired by how the theory explains workplace dynamics, I attended training programs in the 2000s in Washington D.C. and Texas.
I have used Bowen Theory in every aspect of my life, all based on my ongoing differentiation of self:
- in my personal and professional lives to shape interactions with family, partners, and colleagues;
- in my coaching and consulting to advise executive directors dealing with underactive boards of directors;
- in my psychic readings for everything from advising lovelorn clients to calming people worried about getting fired.
I love theory and went to graduate school in sociology after getting my undergraduate degree in political science and journalism. Bowen Theory has fed my analytical inclinations even as I built careers outside academia.
How does this fit into a psychic reading? When my rational mind suggests Bowen Theory might be useful to a client, I silently ask: “Should I introduce systems theory?” I accept the immediate “yes” or “no.” Your Higher Self knows better than I do whether or not it will help you. If the answer is “yes,” then I temporarily switch into conscious mind mode to share the theory.
All the while listening to my intuition, too.
Engaging an Underactive Board
Excerpt from my report on a multi-month consulting engagement involving an under-functioning Board of Directors:
The first change in Board behavior occurred immediately after the launch event – Board members scheduled their own meetings instead of waiting for the Executive Director to do so, and they came prepared. Every Board member participated graciously in my 60- to 90-minute phone interviews that focused their attention on their own behavior. Those interviews helped set the stage for further self-assessment and learning at the subsequent governance training, which all Board members attended (an outcome in itself).
Here are some of the outcomes achieved by the end of the engagement:
Higher expectations for improved Board performance by Board members
Board committees were meeting and trustees were attending them
All three Board committees had set goals for the year and were working toward them
Increased Board understanding of program
Greater Board member attendance at a program-related educational opportunity
A shift away from crisis mode and toward strategic thinking
A new Board president stepped forward
Board-Executive Director Relationship
ED handled fewer Board jobs
The Board President observed ED was calmer
ED reported that both her morale and her satisfaction with the Board increased
Increased delegation skills by ED
Creation of a mid-management layer
Increased ED time spent on executive functions such as fundraising, capacity building, strategic planning, legislative issues, and government regulation research
Lesser involvement by ED in client crises
This was a successful engagement that transformed an unengaged “problem” Board into an active governing Board. We’ll see if it holds.
Bowen Theory helps me put your individual experiences in the context of broader forces.
Other Reasons To Work With Me
I can give you insight into people, showing you the optimal way to work with them.
When I became a supervisor in my early 30s I had had little meaningful training in managing people. Most of my prior learning was based on observing bad bosses and striving to be different. Over the years, I’ve learned that when you understand the people that you supervise — and why YOU act the way you do around them — you bring out the best in others.
When you can’t hear your own divine direction, I can serve as a liaison with your Higher Self.
Your Higher Self is that part of your consciousness that is connected with the divine. It knows what you signed up to do and learn in this lifetime. It is one of my primary sources of information when answering the questions you bring to our sessions (although not the only source). I serve as your liaison between your conscious mind and the part of you that knows what is in your highest and best interests.
I respect your struggles.
Because I’ve healed from extensive health issues and deep-rooted traumas, I am sensitive to your personal challenges. Which, after all, sometimes help explain your problems in the professional world.
My chart is perfect for this work!
It’s no surprise to me that my astrology birth chart indicates a combination of strong spiritual and business inclinations. On the business side I have:
- An entrepreneurial spirit and work ethic (inherited from my parents, who owned a family business)
- A knack for thinking like a marketer (used in several jobs)
- Comfort with money (developed as a fundraiser)
- Critical thinking (honed in college prep school)
Having been through many life transformations adds to my intuitive ability to see you both as who you are now, and who you could become.
