"Forget about trying to compete with someone else. Create your own pathway. Create your own new vision."
A central thread and primary wish in my life is that I am able to inspire self-acceptance and self-expression in all people. I’m a holistic life coach, university professor, speech path/communication therapist, author, singer-songwriter, and music curator who is devoted to self-care skills/spiritual practice. For me, these passions all intersect and weave together like a spider’s web. This site is organized in such a way that you can check out one strand at a time, although there are many connections between them.
I was born in Ann Arbor, Michigan, many moons ago. I’ve also lived in Eugene, Oregon, Washington DC, and Madrid. I have been living in San Francisco for the past 30+ years and have been blessed to share the last 15 of them with my husband Jorge. I’m devoted to life-long learning, creativity, compassion, and social justice, as well as dancing and chanting as forms of spiritual practice.
