Nobody cares how much you know, until they know how much you care.

-Theodore Roosevelt

I do care, greatly.

From a young age, I learned illness, suicide, and death, as well as grieving and healing, are part of life.

Experience is a demanding teacher.

My experiences have fueled my devotion to learning, living, and teaching hands-on, hearts-engaged compassionate presence and care.

I offer you over 40 years of professional training and experience as a teacher and healing arts practitioner, along with the compassion born from my roles as a family caregiver and hospice volunteer. 



Whether caring for a person, pet, plant, or place,
the alchemy of caring mysteriously
imbues the mundane with meaning,
transforms the ordinary into the extraordinary.
