Read MY Mind


“Tell me about the color red,” Laura, my holistic counselor asked on behalf of my guardian angels.  “What? Red? Man, I just don’t know,” I replied. “I know it’s the color of our root chakra and I know I don’t really like it all that much.”  Pausing, I let my mind search, and then laughed,Continue reading “Searchlight”

Intuitive, Reiki Master, Empath, and Bestselling Author of One Plus One Makes THREE

After leaving a twenty-one-year highly analytical banking career, I discovered my intuitive abilities, along with the healing power of Reiki through a physical disease of my own.

I’m a native of conservative Minot, Nor’ Dakota, and it wasn’t until I finally “came out” of the spiritual closet to my surprisingly accepting father that I ditched the fear (mostly), followed my passion (totally), and opened Inner Focus Reiki, where I empower, enlighten, and inspire all who find me.

I’m also a blog writer-turned author. If you enjoy my blogs, you’ll love my bestselling memoir/novel, One Plus One Makes Three.

I write the way I speak, a rarity I’m told, and with authenticity (and sometimes swear words) about my experiences with intuition, angels, a sassy pants tiny human, and my overly stubborn husband.
