What do you do best?
Listen and uncover dysfunctional or damaging behavioral patterns for clients (and anyone who asks) to create new, effective, and satisfying patterns, which lead to less suffering and more joy!
What makes you the best?
I’ve been called a cognitive intuit. I deeply understand human nature and the way the mind works and have always had an innate ability to recognize the underlying cause of an issue.
What are your aspirations?
To help as many people as possible live extraordinary lives that hopefully also adds value to our greater good.
I married a widower with three sons almost twenty years ago. My healthy, beautiful family (who are having families of their own now!) is my greatest joy, my destiny, my dharma and nothing makes me more proud than the humans they have become and the lives they are creating. (I would not consider this MY success per se but it does bring me the most joy and satisfaction in life.)
Most Challenging Moment?
Surviving cancer, losing my father and being held up at gunpoint within a year (many years ago).
I am fully responsible for my choices, my responses and my own happiness (and so is everyone else).
Favorite People/Role Models?
Deepak Chopra has profoundly impacted my life and my work. I have also been blessed to have AMAZING women/role models all of my life; from my mom and sisters to the crew of friends I’ve had since 2nd grade to a group of Crazy Sexy Women pulled together by one of my closest pals, Kris Carr. I am definitely a girl’s girl!
My favorite place to go is our quiet, peaceful little Greek revival farmhouse built in 1820, located in New York State. We live on three acres surrounded by woods with vibrant organic gardens to feed us during the summer, thanks to my husband, Victor. It’s where I can exhale, be in nature and spend quality down time with my husband and family.
Coconut oil, for everything.
I just filmed a virtual, ten-week course in Barcelona called the Real Love Revolution that I am super excited to share with the world. It is a culmination of my life’s work around love and relationships (starting with self-love). The course begins on Feb 1st, 2017 and anyone, anywhere in the world can participate from the comfort of her couch!
