Yes, I, too was one of those little girls dreaming about love, weddings, marriage, white picket fences, and the handsome guy on the white horse (well, perhaps Mercedes). I even had a dream when I was about eleven years old that my true love came for me in a lovely carriage, yet I couldn’t see his face.

My first heartbreak came at the age of five (awww, right?), and after a few decades of painfully miserable relationships, a broken engagement, and a marriage that crashed and burned to a husband who lied and cheated several times over among other things that would make one’s head spin, I figured being alone and single had to be better than all that! I was just about ready to give up the dream, which would have been a crushing blow.

Instead … I took my sad breakdown about love and marriage and had a major breakthrough.  I uncovered hidden issues ruminating in my consciousness that I hadn’t even admitted to myself—things that were holding me back from real love. I searched for, discovered, and learned the knowledge, tools, and skills I needed and aligned my consciousness to meet the right person and start my dream relationship.


I then found the great love of my life; my husband Rick. He’s pretty awesome! Ok, he is more than awesome. We have been happily remarried since 2001 and marriage is better than I had ever imagined.

My experiences inspired me to create a system to teach you not just some key relationship and marriage information, but the true critical tools, skills, techniques, and consciousness alignment to have the relationship or marriage you desire!

My Specialties:

Remarrying Right.  This is not always an easy transition and I specialize in helping couples integrate into a marriage, with at least one partner having been previously married, and teach them their own transformation, skills, techniques and tools to be on the right side of the divorce rate statistics.

And, yes, I also work with couples struggling in any relationship or marriage in Revitalizing Your Relationship. There are so many do’s and don’ts during the course of a lifetime of partnership and having support when things are looking grim, when love feels like it is in a rut, or when unexpected painful challenges and betrayal occur, can uplift the container of a relationship, reignite intimacy, connection, compassion, healing, help cope with challenges, and literally save a relationship or marriage.

Manifesting Love Again is my program for those who are single or single again who have really been through heartbreak and want to finally find the love of their life.  Working with this system provides the transformation and the techniques needed to heal the past, realign your inner landscape and consciousness, and prepare you for the journey of true conscious love as well as sustain your dream of life long partnership.

Once love is manifested and the big day has happened or is about to happen, Starting Marriage Right is critical. The first year of marriage comes with some unexpected issues that emerge forward, a lot of integration, many adjustments whether you have lived together or not, and having the tools, skills, support, and understanding can literally prevent an early divorce and set the stage for a lifetime of crazy good love.

As an Intuitive Coach, I don’t spend the time doing direct readings and making predictions because that is not what coaching is about, but I do incorporate my clairvoyant intuitive abilities in concert with my coach training skills to move your process forward much more swiftly and allows me to take a sneak intuitive peek into your process to support you in ways that most others cannot.

Most women who want to manifest love again have shared that they think finding the right venue, online dating site, or convincing someone to choose them, while sacrificing their own needs and requirements to please and settle, will bring them a marriage they can live with.

Others have waited for the fantasy of the handsome, rich guy on the white horse (or BMW) coming to sweep them off their feet, pay their bills, shower them with gifts and live the happily-ever-after fairy tale.

Many couples about to be married or who have just gotten married don’t realize the challenges, adjustments, and integration that comes with starting a new marriage.

Many couples in relationships and marriages think they need to prove they are right, blame their partner for their challenges in life, wait for their partner to change, or even feel the need to head for the hills at the first sign of conflict, communication or intimacy issues.

Couples who have been married before have even more to integrate and more fears come up since their previous marriage didn’t last, have some painful issues to process that may come up in the new marriage, and may now be in a blended family situation, having to learn to navigate that. In addition, those divorce statistics for 2nd and 3rd marriages are 70-90%.


There is hope at all stages of love and it can even be easy! Imagine that!

Experiencing coaching to manifest love again, finally having an amazing and beautiful relationship, marriage or remarriage that defy those horrific statistics, is a transformational and deep experience.

I strongly believe that the journey of relationship and marriage gives us a unique opportunity to truly know ourselves, heal old wounds, learn to love, grow, evolve, and embrace deep love – more than any other life experience.

The relationship or marriage experience with the right partner is truly amazing and totally worth it!
