• Do you ever wonder why you are the way you are?
• Do you feel your life is lacking a sense of purpose, or that there is more to life?
• Do you have difficulty understanding your child or someone else close to you?
I am here to help you find the answers to these types of questions, whether they are about yourself, your career, or your relationships.
We are born on purpose
We are, each one of us, born on purpose, for a purpose; we are meant to be here. We are not born as blank slates, waiting to be influenced by the vicissitudes of life—instead, we are born with a “divine design,” a unique mix of gifts and talents, of beliefs and desires, of genius and passion, that has been carefully crafted by the Organizing Force of the Universe. This represents the spiritual aspect of our personality, what we refer to as our soul.
Most people are aware that they have a soul, but in general don’t pay much attention to it. But in fact, our soul is who we are. Mainstream scientists declare that our personality is a product of inherited DNA coupled with our upbringing (Nature + Nurture) while at the same time saying that people are “born that way” or have “God-given gifts,” reference to an inherent aspect of our personality. The Human Genome Project has found little evidence that human traits are inherited through DNA, so we have to ask ourselves, Where do these innate traits come from? My work shows that they arise from the soul, the spiritual aspect of who we are.
Understanding our differences
We are very different from one another, with different goals and missions in life, and different ways of relating to the world, much more so than we might imagine. Understanding who we are, and how different we are from those around us, helps us to gain peace and fulfillment in our life and enables us to relate more effectively to others. We are meant to be the way we are, just as they are meant to be the way they are.
“The privilege of a lifetime is being who you are.”
A former publisher, I discovered my intuitive gifts about seven years ago and since then have focused on developing these gifts so I can help others with their metaphysical issues. Through research and experience, I developed the Soul Analysis Scan which shows that there is a definitive structure to our soul, our divine design. This forms the foundation for my work and is described in full in my new book, Know Yourself, Be Yourself. My methods are scientifically-based yet intuitively inspired, and give effective and profound solutions to many of life’s problems. By helping others identify their innate gifts and talents—their unique individuality—I enable them to connect with their purpose and passion in life and help them to realize their full potential. For more information, go to the Soul Analysis page.

Our Life’s Work
The search for enlightenment is the search for the truth about who we are, and it is our life’s work to find out what this is and live it. Each of us is an essential thread in the proverbial tapestry of life, all the parts making up a fully-functioning whole, becoming, in effect, the multi-celled organism that is humanity. We owe it not just to ourselves, but to our family, our community, and to human civilization, to make this quest to discover who we are and what it is that we are to contribute.
“In order to be someone, you must first be yourself.”
— Popular Saying.
It is my great privilege to be able to help others as they take the inward journey to discover the truth about themselves and learn how they can fulfill their destiny. No one’s life is without struggle, but it is through struggle that we learn and grow. Knowing who we are and what tools we have been given to make it through life help make those struggles less challenging. Please do contact me to see how I may be able to help you. I send each one of you blessings and peace as you make your journey through life.
