I arrived on this planet as a profoundly sensitive being and a very old soul. Many times over the course of growing up and becoming a woman in this world, my heart was broken by the disconnection I felt and observed, both in my own life and in the world around me. It often seemed like there was a layer of cellophane between people - some kind of energetic and emotional wall, blocking us from fully open, present, intimate connection and expression. I longed for that cellophane to disappear, and for us to be able to share and be with one another straight from our hearts and souls. Everything I have ever done in my life, personally and professionally, has come out of this dream, this vision, this longing. It is all about opening and connection. Sometimes it’s my own opening and connection, sometimes it’s facilitating other people’s opening and connection - and of course, so exquisitely, the line between these is ultimately nonexistent. When I connect to my heart, I open the door for you to do the same, in my presence - and vice versa. So, I am an intuitive, a creative muse, a singer, an editor, a coach, an actress, a dancer, a healer, a sister, an aunt, a daughter, a friend, a student. It all comes from the same ground and aims for the same transcendence and presence.
Along this path, it turns out decades of experience and training have accumulated in the fields of creativity, personal growth, spirituality, and entrepeneurship. I am a classically trained mezzo soprano with a B.A. in English from Yale University. I have worked and trained closely with countless experts and luminaries in the aforementioned fields. Some of my touchstones have included: bestselling authors Kathryn Harrison, Elizabeth Berg, and Danielle LaPorte; Regena Thomashauer aka Mama Gena; Tony Award-winning choreographer Ann Reinking, Academy Award-winning actress Mercedes Ruehl, Academy Award-nominated actor Roy Scheider, healer and mystic Joanne Ameya Cohen, and many more, including my birth family of fierce and extraordinary women.
It is my joy to share my mission of melting away the cellophane, and to reach into my toolbox to support you in your melting, and your sharing. I feel certain in the depths of my being that that is what the world needs: us, in our purest, bravest, honest-est, open-est form.
That is the elixir we pour into the world. And it is needed now more than ever.
