About Me: 

I have freed my vast creative potential and today I can happily say that I am my dream. But it was not always this way.

At the beginning of my adult life, I saw myself as an actress and a poet. I used to say that I was terrible in art, that the only thing I could do with my hands was write. And I meant writing poetry or drama because even in writing, I thought I could not write a novel or short story. I thought that even in theatre I was limited to acting and writing plays, because I could not possibly direct. I could not sing if I tried. I sang out of tune and people would ask me to shut up, so I stopped singing very early on.

Today I am a poet, novelist, storyteller, dance-theatre performer and director, visual artist, spiritual teacher and shaman and I have freed my singing voice too.

The message I embody with my life is this: There is no limit to your potential except the limit you put in yourself. Power is not easy. Freedom is not easy. It is hard work. It demands commitment. But with faith, commitment and perseverance, you can accomplish anything you want. You can be all that you are. I have discovered that whatever your heart aches for, it is already yours, buried inside you and all you have to do is discover it.

I dedicate my life to guide passionate women to live their dreams and unleash their potential. I am also a priestess of the Goddess Mother Creatress and I teach Female Wisdom from the Sacred Feminine.You can find more about me at You can enjoy my blog at
