Thank you! I feel beyond blessed to work with so many lovely, creative, hardworking and tenacious people year round.  I know the holidays can be especially challenging, and I am forever humbled by the strength I see in my clients, my family and my dear friends.  All of you have a place in my heart.  …

The Art of Being a Beautiful Loser

December 14, 2021

It occurred to me the other day, that life is a series of losses. Nothing is permanent and the things that we most value or esteem, will slip through our grasp time and again. Our looks, people we love, activities we enjoy, finances (which we can win and lose throughout our lives), our sharp minds,…

Broken and Beautiful

November 21, 2021

I believe it was Dr. Robert Schuller who said,  “Tough times never last, but tough people do!”   Every week as a child my Grandma would watch Robert Schuller on the TV, coming live from his Chrystal Cathedral in Southern California for his “Hour of Power.”  Even at the tender age of 13, I recall…

What are our Loved Ones Doing in the Afterlife

November 17, 2021

My first exposure to death was when my 59 year old grandfather unexpectedly passed when I was 5. I still recall looking at his cold body lying in the coffin at the wake. I remember that same week, sitting on the kitchen floor crying while my mom worked in the kitchen; it finally occurred to…

Are You a Joyful Giver? (Or an Inconvenient Martyr?)

November 9, 2021

We take things for granted that we do every day.  The simple act of  brushing our teeth, putting our pants on, making a morning meal, jumping in the car to grab some groceries, raking leaves and cleaning the yard or putting together a meal for our family, are all things we do without considering that…

Day of the Dead Festivities!

November 1, 2021

Today we placed the ashes of my niece Alexandria under her headstone at Buffalo New York’s historic Forest Lawn Cemetery. (My beautiful 18 year old niece was struck and killed by a drunk driver in 2011 while long boarding home from work.) We decided to do this as a festive Day of the Dead celebration…

How Can Acceptance Help Us to Heal Our Lives?

October 18, 2021

Forming an attachment to an idea, situation or to a person is the root of all suffering.  Yet, as human beings, this is exactly the way most of us live.  So loss and suffering is a way of life, and something we all struggle with at one time or another.  Which means we go through…

Are You Trusting in the Unseen Forces?

October 5, 2021

As a high school teacher of 25 years, I learned soon into my career to plan for everything! I left nothing to chance and even anticipated what questions the students would ask. Often, a hand would shoot up and I would give the answer before I called on the student. Yes, part of this did have…

Speaker for the Dead

September 15, 2021

While chatting at a retreat with total strangers recently, the woman next to me said, “ You’re a medium? But why would anyone want to talk to dead people?” I am used to getting a lot of questions when I tell people what I do, but that one threw me for a loop. In MY…

Are You Fighting the Seasons of Change?

September 4, 2021

Life is constantly shifting from one year to the next, with everything in constant flux. I recall reading a book once that likened life to a kaleidoscope; how each small piece changes bit by bit, until finally, the entire view is totally different. Think of where your life was 5 years ago, 10 years ago,…
