The soul living in this human body decided to show up during the year of the snake, when the sun was in Libra and the moon in Leo, to a lovely young couple living on a tiny island in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

My life has been a colorful adventure from day one.  My childhood activities consisted of making little boats out of coconut husks and pretending I was a mermaid on the beaches of my birthplace, the Seychelles Islands. As a teenager, I was a straight A student, bored and skipping school in the quiet mountains of the Carolinas. My college years were spent getting a double BA in English and French, with the amazing opportunity of studying at the Sorbonne in Paris. Back in the U.S., I started multiple entrepreneurial ventures in the publishing industry in Charleston, SC.  After doing that for quite a while, I sold my art magazine business, got rid of everything I owned and moved to California to complete a Master's in Spiritual Psychology. Being a lifelong student, I then decided to get certified as a Kundalini Yoga Teacher. And now - NOW - this moment - I help people to love themselves.  My main focus in life is being present, authentic, and of service. 

I am truly fascinated with the human mind, heart, and psyche, and I am deeply passionate about helping others learn how to reconnect with their Authentic Selves.  My own journey of self discovery has been one of the most challenging – and rewarding – experiences of my life so far.  I’ve been blessed with many teachers and so, so many learning opportunities along the way.  I love that I can now say, with confidence, that with each passing day, I am becoming more and more a person that I actually really like.

These days, I spend my time helping people overcome their blocks and fears so they can access the innate wisdom of their Authentic Selves so they can make their choices from this place of divine guidance and intuition.  I specialize in helping conscious entrepreneurs with the practical business skills they need to bring their visions to life.  I do this through a combination of spiritual psychology techniques, kundalini yoga + meditation, and person-centered therapy. I work with clients privately, I run various classes and workshops, I do speaking engagements... I do my best to be of service to those who want my help. 

When I'm not working, I spend my days practicing Kundalini Yoga, taking Miss Mika Snuggles for walks around Venice Beach or Topanga Canyon, connecting with amazing people, dancing, writing, painting, drawing, sewing, building things, and just in general making artistic creations that seem to want to be born through me.  

Want to connect with me?  I'd love to hear from you.  Drop me a line.

I get interviewed by my first spiritual teacher in this podcast.

In this podcast, I had the honor of being interviewed by one of my very first spiritual teachers - an amazing man named David Michael.  David lives in Charleston, SC and hosts regular gatherings where anyone of any background or belief system is loved, appreciated, and welcomed.  If you're in that area, I highly recommend meeting David in person.  He has been one of the most helpful guides in my own personal journey towards Self Love.  Learn more about David on his website, Teachings Through David Michael


Here are some pictures from my various selves throughout my life so you can have a giggle at my expense.
