I’d like to introduce myself as your new advice columnist. My goal is to help women navigate life’s challenges by using my skills as an angel channel and psychic medium, as well as my experience as a mental health therapist.
I’m thrilled and humbled to have the opportunity to share advice with you, the readers of this magazine. I can’t wait to get started, but first I’d like to share my story, so you can have some insight into my experience and outlook.
I was the type of child that had my entire adulthood planned out. By the age of 29, I was going to be married with two children, living in the suburbs of Rochester. As a young adult, I decided to follow along in my mother’s footsteps and become a social worker. This seemed like a great fit for me as I had a knack for helping others with their problems.
I worked SO hard to make that life a reality. I went to graduate school and worked for years at mental health agencies. I studied my butt off and spent thousands of dollars so I could pass my licensing exam and finally earn my License in Clinical Social Work. I was about to open a private practice as a psychotherapist when a different calling set me on a new path.
Unlike many psychic mediums, I wasn’t fully aware of my gifts until I reached adulthood. But from a young age I had experiences where I dreamt or envisioned things before they happened. The dreams started when I was about 19 years old.
Some were completely irrelevant, like dreaming that my bike tire was flat and discovering the flat tire the next day. Others were shattering. The very worst one was a dream that my best friend in high school died. The dream was so detailed and vivid that I called her the next day to make sure she was all right.
Tragically, my friend died just a year and a half later. Every detail of my dream came true. I was told by another psychic that I had keen psychic abilities that I could access if I wanted, but I decided to continue on with my life.
Then four and a half years ago when I was working at a mental health agency, I had another terrifying dream. I learned the dream was about a traumatic event my client experienced over 20 years ago. I knew then that I needed to finally take charge of my psychic awareness. My mentor, Diane Ronner, taught me how to tap into my psychic intuition in a way that felt safe and accessible.
During the darkest and most painful part of my life in my early 20's, I saw little sparks of light that would shine for a second and then disappear. For a moment I thought that these sparks were celestial beings. Then I told myself that only enlightened, holy people could see such things. Someone also told me there was probably something wrong with my eye, so I stopped believing and the tiny sparks eventually disappeared.
Two-and-a-half years ago, I began seeing the sparks of light again at work. This time, I sensed intuitively that the sparks were angels.
When many people hear angels, they think religion. Angels are mentioned in Judeo-Christian texts, but I look at angels from a non-religious point of view. As I see them, angels are celestial beings that are here to help us navigate the difficulties of being human.
To test my thinking, I asked the angels for a sign of confirmation by playing Pachelbel’s Canon on Pandora. Moments later Pachelbel’s Canon came on. Then I asked them to play my favorite song on the radio when I was driving home from work. I turned on the radio and my favorite song was playing.
With gratitude I began channeling messages directly from angels for myself and my clients. As my ability to communicate with the angels grew stronger and my psychic mediumship skills developed, I felt limited in my work as a mental health therapist. It would have been unethical for me to tell a client that I saw angels around them or that their deceased grandmother was trying to relay messages.
As an intuitive healer, I have been able to help children, teens, and adults feel happier, ease physical pain, improve interpersonal relationships, boost self-esteem, and cope with losses. That being said, what I offer is not a substitute for mental health or medical treatment. I always recommend therapy/medical care for people who have complex issues to resolve.
Now let me explain a bit about my process for this column: I do not have to sit face to face with someone in order to pick up psychic information. I often give phone readings for clients across the country! When I receive a question, I will tap into the person and situation using my psychic intuition and channel messages from the angels. If appropriate, I’ll draw on my experience as a mental health counselor.
As we know, alleviating stress and emotional pain can decrease the chances of getting illnesses such as heart disease, so I feel that this column fits the Go Red for Women theme perfectly! I feel very blessed to be given this opportunity to help guide and support the amazing women of Rochester.
I’m looking forward to hearing from you and answering your questions! Please email your question to firstname.lastname@example.org. Type Ask the Angels in the subject line and indicate how I should address you (using your real name, just initials, etc…) in my response.
