I grew up in Philadelphia.  My brother and sister-in-law live in that area with their three lively sons.  They own and operate  St. Jude Religious Stores  in Philadelphia region.  Our family business always was related to something spiritual.  It was in Philadelphia that I met our Dominican Sisters and knew I was home! 

Today, it is my great privilege to work with people in opening ways of healing and claiming gifts.  I bring compassion to this process of journeying with others on paths of healing, love and light.  I am a lifelong dream explorer, experienced workshop and retreat leader, lecturer, group and individual counselor.  I am a Credentialed Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor. 

Over the years I’ve worked on staff in retreat houses, as a college campus minister at Barry University in Miami, university teacher at Villanova and counselor at an outpatient chemical dependency treatment agency.  I am well known for my work with dreams and for healing work with adult children of addictive families and survivors of sexual abuse.  I lead retreats wherever I am invited and dream groups and do consultation with individuals.  Because I am committed, along with others, to manifesting a world in which dreams are cherished and dream guidance is welcomed, I teach in the Robert Moss School of Active Dreaming.

I rejoice in the abundance of grace that flows and the resiliency people have to heal and grow into expressing soul purpose and love.

My expertise includes:

  •       Psychospiritual Counseling
  •       Dream exploration
  •       Guided Imagery
  •       Recovery from trauma
  •       Spiritual direction
  •       Healing rituals


A Quote to Ponder -                    
  "We must restore hope to young people, help the old, be open to the future, spread love. Be poor among the poor. We need to include the excluded and preach peace."  Pope Francis
