Friendship – State Your Claim


I remember as a 5th grader getting clear one day, stating, “I want my own best friend, and not just anyone, but someone perfect for me and me perfect for her.” I’m not sure if I had any one person in mind for this grand claim. However, there was in my homeroom that year a… Read more

The Benefits of Self-Love

Benefits of Self-Love

In our society, and perhaps in our world, we have it backwards. Our songs, movies and novels often speak to love as being found outside ourselves, and it is often implied that if we want love then we need to get someone else to love us and to ‘do’ the loving of us for us… Read more

I love you and yes

Yes I love you

This is what the Universe says whenever we have a thought about our life and ourselves. When we say, “I think life is good, fair and easy,” the Universe says, “Okay, you got it.” If we say, “I think I am smart, capable, and can handle what comes my way,” the Universe says, “Yes you… Read more

Take the Leap. You will be glad you did.

Take the leap

Many years ago I sat in a co-dependency support group listening to the group leader explain how patterns from childhood repeat.

We were out for a long walk on a recent Saturday afternoon when my friend, Lizzy, asked me, “How should I describe your work to others?” I love this question and, although it is not a simple answer, I will attempt to answer it here. First of all, when I tell people, “I clear patterns”… Read more

Familiar Doesn’t Always Mean Healthy

Familiar Doesn't Always Mean Healthy

Often in a session, I will ask clients if they were closer with one of their parents than the other. Or, I ask if one parent was tougher for them to connect with than the other. Invariably, I hear them say, “Yes, my mom and I weren’t close”, or “My dad and I didn’t get… Read more

Looking at Life through the Lens of Patterning by

As a healing arts practitioner who is focused on helping clients deeply change patterns of behavior they wish they didn’t have, I find myself often looking at life through the lens of patterning. I’m always saying things like, “Hmmm, I wonder what is behind that thinking?” Or inquiring, “What past events is that behavior rooted… Read more

What I Believe

One of the things that bothered me in childhood was the teaching that if I didn’t believe a certain way, I would surely go, you know…to the bad place. I didn’t want to be scared or coerced into believing a certain way. Many people claim to know the truth, but all too often beliefs are… Read more
