While writing my book “Imagine Being Kind to Yourself,” I had to ‘reinvent myself’ and take off any ‘-hoods’ or ‘-ists’ in order to just be me, without anybody else’s letters, stamps or bells and whistles. I have collected plenty of them over the years of training and transformation and am deeply grateful for every transmission, teaching, tool and technique I have learned to apply with myself and my clients.
All of my past experiences have blessed and assisted me in becoming mySelf and what I offer you is basically me!
Being fully me allows you to Be You
and that is the greatest Gift we can Be and give to each other:
A little about what brought me here:

I have also been teaching meditation classes at UC Santa Cruz since 2008 and also at Santa Cruz County Jail.
And there is a lot more…
Out of the tyranny of self-doubt and self-criticism
I know how titles and letters can look so impressive after your name. What is the most impressive to me, however, is how I found my way out of the tyranny of self-doubt and self-criticism that I grew up in. This caused me a lot of suffering and anxiety, never really trusting what was true for me, compromising myself and led me into a number of very uncomfortable circumstances. Trust me, self-doubt was my middle name most of my life and kept me in duality, separation and suffering. Out of it has arisen the strength and embodiment of Knowing who I am and living my life according to the Oneness, Guidance and Wisdom of my Heart – known to me as the divine Feminine Flow. This is the best credential I can offer you.
