As a Life Coach, teacher and artist, I work with individuals and groups on expanding self awareness, increasing authentic expression, deepening intimacy with self and others and manifesting personal and collective visions. My PsychoSpiritualCreative Perspective is a reflection of my own work and education in psychology, education and practice in spirituality and being both a published poet and an award-winning singer-songwriter.
I have an extensive background in designing and delivering workshops, classes and seminars in business, academic and retreat settings. I have taught diversity seminars across the country for the US West Direct Corporation (now Dex Media), facilitated numerous team building retreats for companies in Oregon and have been an adjunct faculty lecturer in the Psychology Dept. at Southern Oregon University since 2000. In 2007 I was chosen by the Northwest Council of Study Abroad to teach a University Psychology program in Athens, Greece. Currently I co-facilitate a tour to Bali each Fall called Spiritual Bali: A Journey of Transcendent Beauty, Self Nurturing and Falling in Love with your own Deep Wisdom. www.spiritualbalitour.com
Academically I hold both a Bachelors and Master’s degree in Psychology from Southern Oregon University (Ashland, Oregon) and a Doctoral degree in Spirituality from University of Creation Spirituality (Oakland, California).
I’ve traveled extensively in India, Indonesia, Europe and Africa and lived in both Mexico and Greece. Home is in Ashland, Oregon with my running partner, Tenzing, a very handsome standard poodle!
