Psychic Awakenings is my way of healing the planet, one psychic student at a time. I love helping more people rediscover their own spiritual abilities and the purpose of their own lives.
I did not have any strange visions or mystical experiences as a child. My spiritual awakening was a gradual process.
I’ve always been interested in understanding people, so I majored in Psychology at the University of California Berkeley. However, I really found my answers to truly understanding human nature through the classes at the Berkeley Psychic Institute (BPI). That’s where my Spiritual awareness was awakened. The psychic tools I learned there changed my life. I learned how to communicate with people in deep and profound ways. I knew that I had discovered the meaning of my life.
It was as a clairvoyant student that I decided that teaching people how to wake up to their own psychic and intuitive skills was my life’s ambition. I knew that I was meant to share this information with other people. I was just 22 years old. Even though it would be another twenty-eight(!) years before I opened up my own psychic school, I never lost sight of my dream.
I was ordained as a spiritual minister at BPI and taught meditation and healing classes there. Then I moved to Seattle and worked at Microsoft, became a certified reflexologist, earned my Masters in Social Work, worked at a crisis intervention clinic, and taught natural birthing classes. My extensive experience in both conventional and alternative counseling gives me a unique perspective and a wide range of skills with which to support you.
I founded Psychic Awakenings in 2006. I have taught hundreds of students and have done thousands of readings. I have trained other psychic teachers. This is what I AM supposed to be doing.
In 1991 I experienced a spontaneous awakening and subsequently a breakdown. This awakening was a brilliant opening to psychic gifts however the resulting experience was overwhelming. I had prophetic dreams of flooding disasters and steep beaches with 30-foot waves. This was a calling with the opportunity to dive deeply into intuitive training and healing.
The years following were both challenging and wonderful. I was undone in a way and had to learn to be focused and whole again. I had just come to a point where I felt I knew myself, but this awakening experience required that I relearn everything from a newly opened place.
I am a psychic, with clairvoyant, clairaudient, and clairsentient capability. In 2016 I completed the Psychic Awakenings Clairvoyant Awareness Program. I currently teach the foundation courses that helped me integrate all I had learned with my psychic ability.
My spiritual journey has fundamentally changed my life. Residence at the Findhorn Foundation; travel in Tibet, India, and Nepal; studies in Tibetan Tantric Buddhism with the Dalai Lama and at the Vagrapani Institute; Vipassana meditation, and Psychic training; all mark important steps along the path to rebalancing and relearning my spiritual identity.
As an artist I have followed a lifelong spiritual path of perception, seeing life as the spirit-centered process of becoming. In my art, I construct beautiful, intriguing objects as poetic interpretations of life forms, dreams, psychic impressions, and fairy tales. They reflect a deep love of life and a need for spiritual connection.
We all have intuitive and spiritual abilities. I enjoy conversing with students and introducing techniques to facilitate reconnection with their intuitive abilities.
My journey as a teacher has been deeply influenced by my personal healing experiences which included trauma and illness. In my early twenties, I had the fortune of meeting some wonderful counselors, teachers and a psychic healer who had studied at the Berkeley Psychic Institute. Inspired by this encounter, I pursued classes at affiliated institutes in Ballard, Everett and in Queen Anne at Psychic Awakenings. In 2021, I completed their Clairvoyant Awareness Program and in 2022, their Spiritual Teacher's Program. These transformative techniques have had a profound impact on my life - They are powerful and life changing.
I do not believe that being psychic is exclusive to a select few. We all have intuitive abilities that are inherent within us waiting to be developed and embraced as our birthright. Developing our intuition is akin to tuning into a radio frequency, moving past the static and connecting with our unique intuitive frequency. We all possess distinct intuitive strengths, and it is joyful to empower others to explore and experience these inherent gifts.
Alongside my work at Psychic Awakenings, I am employed at a local university, where I facilitate operations and human resource processes. I also have a background working in the healing arts -acupressure, therapeutic massage, and energy work. My academic background is in Asian Studies.
I am truly excited about the opportunity to collaborate with you and support your journey of self-discovery and empowerment. I look forward to connecting with you!
