I am a licensed therapist, in both massage and psychology, and am also an ecumenical minister, seminar facilitator and author. I have over three decades of experience in the human potential arena. I assist clients to reach their full potential both personally and spiritually by exploring and developing their natural talents, personal passions, and their genius.

The threads of masculine/feminine balance and synergy, compassion, story telling, and finding one’s sense of belonging in the world are special interests I weave through my work.

I have always been a traveler, as our family lived internationally when I was a child, and this has contributed to feeling part of a world community. I am interested in many cultures and languages, and have become attracted to the slow food movement and the rich diversity of foods and plants.

I am author of the book, “Love Language: Letters between Man, Woman, and Eros”. I believe our many senses ( certainly more than five) are the greatest ways we can learn about the pleasures and joys of life, including our pleasure in Spirit or the Divine.

Through our senses we can learn empathy, gratitude, healing, and the art of connecting with another human being.


I began to study Argentine tango in 1998. The metaphorical language of tango, the listening skills needed to hear intense and subtle pieces of the music, and the fine motor skill needed for dancing it have also influenced how I work with clients. Our bodies have a magnificent ability to express feeling, but are able to do so in a unique way when embraced and held with loving intention.

Through my workshops and practice I hope to be able to create more connection between people, and self connection to our spiritual resources. the abilities to be truthful, to forgive, to enjoy, and to re-create are needed for our biological systems to function in the most efficient way. Our brains would much rather be assisting our renewal and our highest levels of art and play, rather than dragging along on auto pilot.

I would like to be a part of new kinds of community and housing that include organic farming, “domestic” skills, and integrate all of the community into a sense of belonging.

Through the travel opportunities I offer, I hope to give participants a new perception of culture, and expand the sense of gratitude and enjoyment with ordinary and extraordinary experiences. I invite them to form kinship with others while enriching their own sense of purpose.

I am an ordained minister since 1980, through MSIA, an ecumenical organization. My studies in cranial sacral therapies have been primarily through the Milne Institute. I have completed levels one and two of their program. I have also completed the “brain” course of CS with Dr. Benjamin Shield.

Equine cranial sacral studies have been through Maureen Rogers. I have taken all four levels of her courses, and the equine dissection. I have completed levels I and II of the EMDR training, and have completed all 20 hours of supervision needed for my consultant status.

My study of Noetic Field Balancing ( formerly referred to as “aura” balancing) was done in 1980-1981 with Dr. Robert Waterman. I am a mother, a sister, and a very good friend. I find that these simple relationships are ones that need to be constantly attended, and noticed with fresh eyes, thankfulness, and carefully shared insights. Teaching: I taught polarity therapy at the New Mexico Academy of Healing Arts ( Santa Fe)and elsewhere. I have taught Argentine tango in several cities in the USA, and also in Argentina and in Mexico. I taught Hatha Yoga for twelve years. I also taught a course about the psychology of the body at NMAHA in Santa Fe. I have taught numerous workshops that I created, the most important one being “Living Your Dream.” I taught this workshop to fifth graders at the Santa Fe Waldorf school, and many groups of adults in Mexico and the USA. I also facilitate groups on dream interpretation.

Languages: I am fluent in Spanish and speak French also.
