I am a heartist and healer. I love weaving words and music with their inherent power to make connections to the heart of healing. I am a singer/guitarist; avid writer; word & song-crafter; holder of spaces and inspirational mirror. I am a natural voice practitioner and enjoy exploring the voice as a tool for the free expression of emotions and experiences, to embody and come to our healing.
I am a love revolutionist, a vision-board maker; a secret doodler and dancer; a lover of solitude, and of human connection; a lover of all sentient beings and nature.
I believe in the divine essence inherent in each of us that guides us into becoming fully who we are. I am passionate about working with youth and women, and helping them recognise and celebrate who they are and who they can be.

how to pierce us like an arrow straight through the heart”.
