BIOGRAPHY

Self love is a gift you give yourself.

With over 35 years dedicated to holistic practice and wellness, it is my passion and commitment to assist and guide humanity to a higher level of understanding, self-transformation and acceptance, healing and love.
 
This journey has been transformational both personally and professionally for my own self as well as my clients. Having gained vast experience over the last two decades, it has provided me with the tools and techniques to teach and reach my students and clients in immeasurable ways.
 
Growing up I wanted to feel like I belonged, yet I found myself battling with, as I hadnít felt I did to anyone or anything. I needed to connect to me, to my core. In 1978, I had the privilege to study under the late Bishop Rev. William H. Jackson, D.D., founder of the Philosophers' Open Forum in Hartford, CT. Bishop Rev. Jackson saved my life in a compelling way. His teachings sparked a powerful impression within me, of which positively influenced my journey of self and stimulated my passion for helping others in the holistic and wellness industry. Being in my 20s when I first met Bishop Rev. Jackson, I didnít know it then, but it was his unwavering encouragement that allowed me the space to open up and share; a safe place during a critical time where I felt displaced and uncertain. It was a space to explore my inner core, and so I did. Under his direction and teachings, I completed studies of Generalized Pattern of Human Behavior, Mental Discipline, and a 10-year independent study in Thought Research. During that same period, I also studied various metaphysical courses in Paranormal psychology at the Alpha Logic's Center, Bristol, CT. The knowledge I was gaining was exhilarating; the experience revolutionary.
 
By the Mid 1980's I began teaching classes: Learning to develop your psychic abilities, Introduction to the Chakra's, Creative Visualization and Personal Energies to bring forth education about the metaphysical arena. And soon after began to expand my studies to incorporate self-healing and personal wellness. My second independent study focused on the teachings of Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, a minister and author known for his work on the power of positive thinking. By the late 1980ís, I obtained my certification from "The National Guild of Hypnosis" and collected all the learnings toward implementing my own unique programs of positive attitudes.
 
This is where the magic began, the "spark" so-to-speak that ignited my soul and propelled my journey even more forward than before. The information, learnings and teachings compelled me to want to share with others, and help people realize and recognize their abilities, self worth and value. And so I began creating workshops and classes designed at doing just this. These workshops and classes included Self-Healing, Building of Self-Esteem and Confidence, Pain Management and Inner Guidance.
 
My thirst for more knowledge grew stronger and went on to obtain my B.S. in Healtheology at the American Institute of Holistic Theology, and certification in pain management from The National Guild of Hypnosis. In March 1996, I was featured in the Health Science section of the Hartford Courant which was later picked up by syndicated news throughout the United States and Internet. As a robust believer that knowledge is power, I am continuously feeding my education palette towards completion of a Masters Degree. In the interim, Iíve attained certification as a Reiki Master Teacher, and have been teaching Reiki I, II, III and Master program since 2003. Following certification I completed DNA I and II Thetahealing Course (July, 2005), Crystal Star Healing by Nanci Cannon (2007), and Advanced Soul Entrainment by Karen Paolino-Correia from Heaven on Earth (2014).
 
I have had the pleasure of being a featured speaker on Nutmeg Televisionís New Age Pathways Show hosted by Bill Winkler and spoke with student nurses at Goodwin College addressing a program "Healthy Steps Leading to Improving Self-Care" in 2014. Numerous additional speaking engagements include but are not limited to: lectured at Barnes & Noble Bookstore, Farmington, CT, The National Association of Women in Construction, Glastonbury, CT, Social Workers and Counselors for Women at the Sexual Assault Crisis Service, YWCA, New Britain, CT, and have held workshops at several metaphysical bookstores throughout Connecticut. Additionally, I had the honor of teaching at The Graduate Institute in Bethany, CT, from 2015-2016, with a focus on Ways of Enhancing and Developing Your Intuition for the Masters of Arts Program. This program explores a multi-faceted approach to learning in holistic and interdisciplinary ways. I have also been a featured writer in the Door Opener magazine.
 
Currently, I am teaching a plethora of various personal growth and transformation classes for students and offer a diversity of classes, workshops, retreats and individual appointments.
 
I am a proud member of the Connecticut Holistic Health Association, International Association of Counselors & Therapists, The National Guild of Hypnotists and The Connecticut Hospital Association. My personal business, Tree of Healing, LLC, has received "Best Holistic Practice" of Rocky Hill, CT, for 2014, 2015 and 2017.
