I’m a Certified Awakening Coach, trained by Arjuna Ardagh, author of TheTranslucent Revolution and Relaxing into Clear Seeing.  Arjuna had his awakening with his beloved teacher Papaji, who in turn had been taught by Ramana Maharshi, known as the great 20th century sage of India.  I have been guiding spiritual seekers into a direct experience of being awake to their true nature since 1999.

Additionally, I am a registered Psychotherapist, with an M.A. in Transpersonal Counseling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, CO.  Naropa is the only fully accredited Buddhist inspired university, and was founded in the early ’70′s by Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche.  It’s the only university I know of that requires two full years of meditation practice of its graduate psychology students.  At Naropa, I had the gift of instruction and presence from some incredible, awake instructors,  including Acharyas Fleet Maul,Reggie Ray,  Dale Asrael, author  ofAlready Free, Bruce Tift and many, many other gifted and spiritually aware teachers.  I have worked as Clinical Care Coordinator for Mountain Crest Behavioral Hospital in Fort Collins, CO.

In addition to my above professional roles, I also love being a mother to 4 great sons, and two amazing granddaughters.

I live Westminster CO., half way between Denver and Boulder.  I work with client locally and  internationally via phone or Skype.
