So many of my clients have recently been asking me what is going on energetically that is making especially sensitive people feel so drained. Many people have mentioned to me that they are feeling like the world is crashing down and ask if there is anything I could share astrologically that might help to make sense of what people are going through. My response is a resounding YES! Astrology is a phenomenal resource for solace, guidance, and support especially through challenging times.Read More
I come from a family of six kids and my mom was (and still is) deeply concerned about our physical, emotional and spiritual health. She’ll tell you the story about the time she picked me up off of an exam table at the young age of six months and abruptly left the office of a doctor who insisted I needed my tear ducts cleared with some torturous-looking, long, spindly metal objects.
The data and protocol-driven mindset of that doctor in that moment led him to believe that that procedure was the only conclusion and treatment for me. My mom’s gut said, “heck no!” Her instincts proved right, and in time, my tear ducts cleared up on their own.
Have you ever opted out of a specific medical treatment that a doctor strongly advised, simply because it just didn’t feel quite right? If it’s not always the data, the science or the hard evidence that sways our healthcare decisions, then what else do we rely upon? Is there something deeper that guides us? Is it our intuition that is playing a role?
“It looks like your daughter needs spinal surgery.” It was April 13th and my mind was unable to process these words from my daughter’s scoliosis doctor. The news was a complete departure from the message he shared six months prior, “She’s stopped growing, guys. You’re out of the woods.”
My first reaction was similar to the one I had when I heard my father had passed twenty-four years ago. “There must be something else we can do. This can’t be final.” I tend to jump into a let’s-fix-this mode when faced with a reality I don’t particularly like. Little did I know that my need to seek alternatives to this surgery for my daughter, would lead to healing some of my own wounds and to fortifying my ability to achieve balance.Read More

Stress. You know it's bad, you know you need to do it less. But it's so much easier said than done. And with so many causes, and so many far-reaching health effects, it's easy to get overwhelmed when simply trying to initiate the de-stressing process.

One August a few years ago I became aware that my clothing was looser than usual. I felt a little concerned and a check-in with the bathroom scale revealed that I had lost almost 15 pounds in the past five weeks. I was shocked. If I had been trying to lose the weight I’d have been ecstatic, but I hadn’t...Read More
Six hours after my stint as “The Brave Stranger” in seat 28C, the wheels touched down at Charles de Gaulle airport where I was to spend the next three and a half days distracting myself from the fact that I was not with my children for Thanksgiving. My left arm was achy from being squeezed by the young woman sitting in 28B. The turbulence was awful and my arm and I had helped her stay calm.Read More
