My story

My journey on the Path to (re)Discovering Who I Am

Are you ready for a life-changing journey of transformation? I’m here to guide you every step of the way! As a dynamic speaker, world author, and highly sought after therapist and coach, I’m dedicated to helping people just like you turn their biggest challenges into opportunities for growth and fulfillment.

With a background in Psychology, including a Bachelor’s degree from SUNY Stony Brook, a Master’s from New York University, and a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Capella University, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table.

But my journey didn’t stop there. I continued to seek out new perspectives and push the boundaries of conventional psychology by completing a post-doctoral fellowship in Consult Liaison Psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine at The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, and the inaugural class of Andrew Weil, MD’s Integrative Health and Lifestyle program at the Center for Integrative Medicine at the University Of Arizona Medical School in Tucson where I mastered the biopsychosocialspiritual aspects of Integrative Health and Wellness.

Through my own journey of self-discovery, I discovered a passion for helping others unlock their full potential. I believe that every challenge is an opportunity to learn, grow, and become the best version of yourself. And I’m here to be your guide, whether you’re facing life’s path head on or navigating unexpected turns.


Inspired by hundreds of clients since 1987 I published my first book in 2008 – A life Aligned: The Journey to Allowing the Magic in Your Life. The book continues to appeal to a wide audience base globally and has been helping many walk the path of self-discovery. I haven’t stopped writing. I am currently writing other books, of which the most anticipated – Paradise (re)Discovered: Authenticity in a New World – will be ready in late 2023.

My approach to helping clients makes it hassle-free for them. I offer virtual coaching sessions via video-conferencing and email, drawing energy while working from my favorite places including Querétaro, México; Santa Fé, New México; South Florida’s beaches and the Florida Keys; and, Napa Valley. More recently I have been exploring my fatherland, Italy. I am a passionate writer and teach Clinical Psychology and Mind-Body Medicine to doctoral students. I also lead on-location seminars and workshops anywhere I am called to deliver.

If you don’t find me working through my passion for assisting clients and students, I am having some good times with hobbies: I love traveling, engaging in outdoor activities, gardening, home designs, creating momentous friendships, afternoon respite, watching people at nearby cafés and restaurants and, importantly, rejuvenating time spent in solitude.

I look forward to visiting with you whether online or live! So, what are you waiting for? Join me on this exciting journey of transformation and discover the power of embracing every experience as a stepping stone to a fulfilling life!

I’m a public speaker with more than 30 years’ experience in front of groups of all sizes and for just as many reasons

Past and current clients include nonprofit healthcare organizations, state agencies, media companies, self help organizations, and professional organizations. Whether your intentions are for a motivational keynote, team building, or other organizational needs or events, allow me to hear your thoughts and to share mine to help support your goals beyond your greatest imagination! And we’ll have fun while we’re at it!

I work everyday with individuals too! In virtual sessions, onsite, and in combination

I love integrative health and wellness coaching sessions! Give a session a try and we’ll meet via a telemedicine platform that is quick and easy and free of additional cost to you. My belief is that at the core of your success in achieving any goal is a deep understanding of your current emotional, diet, exercise, and sleep habits, as well as your satisfaction in other areas of your life such as relationships, career, and spiritual practices, and overall happiness, and how they work in harmony or disharmony as things stand today. We will put together a bio-psycho-socio-spiritual model of your life, apply some tweaks that actually pretty easy, and quickly take things to extraordinary heights!

I can help you to:

  • Feel better
  • Live better
  • Connect better
  • Work better
  • Play better
  • Think better
  • And, most importantly, I  can help you to (re)Discover who you really are and to live every day from that place of divine purpose and inspiration… and… to Be Better!
