In May 1995, two pivotal events changed the course of my life forever. The first was being accepted into an internship in object relations, one of the depth psychologies and an integral part of my midlife career change. The second was hearing my doctor deliver a challenging and life-changing diagnosis. It was during a search for Daniel, a Yucatec healer, who lived in a hut next to a cenote in the jungle south of Akumal, that I began to accept there are forces beyond my control.
Over the years, my personal interest in the miracle of human reflective consciousness and the power of the imagination in bringing meaning to human suffering morphed into a consulting practice that appeals to adults desiring a creative and informed approach to reorienting psychologically to personal events such as a medical diagnosis, as well as archetypal global events such as 9/11, Hurricane Katrina, the Iraq War, the Great Recession and the Pandemic.
For the last twenty-five years, I've worked, studied, and/or trained with leading Jungian psychoanalysts, scientists, and other professionals in an effort to understand how to assist an individual reorienting during the chaos created by the archetypal theme of order-disorder-reorder.
I live in New Orleans with a black cat named Baby Girl and a man who happens to be one of my best friends and husband. He follows his own path and together we make our way through the labyrinth called life.
