My mission is to empower people to make sense of their past, trust their authentic selves, and a meaningful life for themselves filled with love, home, and belonging.
I’m here to serve you and be of benefit to you. My podcast PERMISSION TO HEAL is built on a foundation of love, a passion for what’s possible, and a commitment to be an unstoppable force for good. I am in this to make a difference, to help learn to trust your inner voice, to help you reach the highest levels of your creative potential, and tap into the deepest wisdom within you, to help you build a life of love, home, and belonging. No matter what your dreams or obstacles, you have the power to change your life and, by doing so, you’ll change the world.
I am a born-and-raised Long Island girl with a passionate heart. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been writing and drawing and painting to express myself and make sense of the world around me. I’ve been keeping journals for 35+ years, since 1985, as a way to process the psychological challenging experiences and situations I found myself in growing up with familial mental illness and addiction, and the behavioral templates for relationships I developed in response.
Like many of you, I’m an emotional abuse survivor and after many years of searching, art, therapy, and deep soul work I figured out a few things that I am passionate about sharing. This is the basis for my memoir – PERMISSION TO LAND: SEARCHING FOR LOVE, HOME & BELONGING available here, Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.
I am also passionate about a multitude of seemingly unconnected things: writing, visual art, psychology, entrepreneurship, creativity, spirituality, education, and philanthropy, just to name a few.
After several aborted attempts at jobs in public relations, non-profit fundraising, computer graphic art, and advertising, wedding and portrait photography, and retail men’s fashion sales, I found myself in the front of a classroom coming to life in 3D teaching English, writing, and literature in a public high school. I’ve been there for 25 years and LOVE it, but I realized that my unusual combination of interests and skills was a strength, not a liability. I also love visual art, writing, and building an exciting business combining it all together with the mission of helping, motivating, inspiring, and nurturing others to fully blossom, to experience the happiness and fulfillment they deserve.
I like to borrow Marie Forleo’s term "Multi-passionate Entrepreneur" because it fits me very well as I do not (and never will) fit into a conventional box.
As Marie says, I believe you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s world.
I continue to learn new things each day and expand my own ideas about what it means to live a fully creative and meaningful life of love, home, and belonging.
Yes, this is a business. Yes, I sell things. I sell VISUAL ART, SILKY SCARVES, and BOOKS. But the vast majority of my creative work is offered to you 100% free of charge.
I’m no expert and I don’t have all the answers. I make mistakes, have dark days, and get mired in fear and self-doubt, just like the rest of humanity, but my commitment is to bring you the very best of what I’m living and learning while keeping it real and honest as I go.
So please don’t expect perfect polish (I’m too quirky and down-to-earth for that) but do expect thought-provoking ideas, timeless wisdom, some off the wall stories, and unwavering devotion to help you live your most expressive and meaningful life.
