Welcome and greetings, I am so glad you are here! This website, Awaken to the Light, which holds the Talking with Thomas Podcast series, is an act of love and passion. My dear friend and colleague, Steve Hayes, and I have been co-hosting groups with Thomas for people to experience what it is like talking with a Spirit Guide and to ask any spiritual questions people may have. It has grown in popularity since we began in 2017. We decided it was time to create a space to hold the many common questions and topics people tend to inquire about.

For myself, I have been on this spiritual journey my entire life. Spirituality, psychology and exploring the truth about who we are and why we are here has been my passion for as long as I can remember. My path has taken many forms such as daughter, sister, friend, wife, mother, therapist and healer. For many years I have had the privilege to explore a variety of spiritual studies. In my more recent silent spiritual retreats, I have deepened in my awakening and beingness. For this I am truly grateful.

My interests these days are more in dis-identifying with any role or label. If I had to choose one, the term Light Worker resonates. Nothing pleases me more than to join with others about exploring the light within and remembering who we are ~ which is love and infinite, divine consciousness. We are all one. We have the ability to create in our awareness heaven on earth. That is happening now as we shift in the collective consciousness. I am also a mystic. I love exploring metaphysical studies, ancient wisdom, and contemplative studies. Mostly this life long journey along the spiritual path of awakening has led me to realize the simple, yet profound, truth of the “I AM” and the “isness” of it all.

As a therapist in private practice for the past 15 years, it has been my pleasure to serve people focusing on spirituality, relationships, sexuality, and healing trauma. I have been trained as a Level 3 Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapist and in the Rhythm of Regulation (Polyvagal Theory). My IFS trainings best fit my spiritual interests because of the focus on helping people find and access their inner, true, Self.

Along the way and during my trainings with the brilliant Dr Dan Brown (Boston, MA) in Attachment Hypnotherapy, I realized that clients were actually connecting to various spirit guides while under hypnosis and it was incredibly healing. Steve was finding the same results and together we coined the term “Spiritual Attachment Therapy” to represent our work in helping clients connect with their guides for their own healing and growth. We offer trainings for therapists who want to learn more about this modality.

In the summer of 2020, I felt a deep inner knowing that it was time to put a pause on working with clients individually to allow space to go further within and focus on things in a different way. I am still in this spiritual sabbatical phase. At some point this may change but for now I am enjoying co-facilitating groups and my own spiritual studies. This was a leap of faith to stop my practice without having something to fill the space. That was part of my guidance. To allow.

My journey has led me to this place of undoing the doer and being spirit lead. It is less doing and more being. I am stepping out of my 3rd dimensional (3D) box of conditioning and focusing more on non-duality and shifting into the 5th dimensional (5D) state of awareness. My intention is being in the present moment every day and holding the present moment awareness. It has become clear to me that there really are no problems. It is a shift in our perspective that, “ALL IS WELL”. We have within us the ability to heal and create. For in fact we are creating our realities all the time from our state of consciousness — our energy, our thoughts and focus create our reality. For whatever we focus on grows. We are able to maintain a high state of vibration from our heart center that which is love.

Through my studies of A Course In Miracles (ACIM), I have learned that our true self is God. We are unlimited, infinite consciousness expressing itself through our individual forms in this “earth-plain reality”. Awakening is being aware of this truth. Awakening is remembrance. We are all interconnected in and from the Oneness. We are of one mind, of God, source energy, divine light. Our egos are in denial. They work to help us survive but they are focused here on a 3D level of awareness and separation. Soul knows it is the truth of who you truly are. The famous sayings, “Know Thyself” and “Be still and know I am” is to know yourself as God.

As we go forward I am interested in exploring more about how to step out of the time/space continuum, accessing portals and becoming aware of all there is to explore in our diverse, multidimensional universe. I’m glad you are here. I am one with you. Thank you for being here. Peace, blessings and love to you.

You can contact me and I would be happy to answer any of your questions.
