When I was in 9th grade I had my whole life planned out: I was going to become a Social Worker like my mother and work as a mental health therapist. I would get married at the age of 27 and have children at 29. I would live with my family in a house in the burbs. I would open a private practice and work as therapist until I retired at the age of 65.
I worked SO hard to make that a reality. I went to grad school, worked for years at mental health agencies where the caseloads were high and the moral was low. I studied my butt off and spent thousands of dollars so I could pass my license exam and finally earn my License in Clinical Social Work. Just as I was ready to finally open a private practice, my psychic awareness opened up and the rest is history. I’ve kissed the conventional life I planned for myself goodbye and now I’m sitting on my couch, writing a blog about communicating with angels and dead people.
My first mediumship experience occurred when I was in my 20s. When a close friend died suddenly, I began reading about life after death to help me process the loss. My reading helped me feel connected to my friend. A few months later, I visited my cousin Jack who had end-stage cancer and had reached a point in which his health was rapidly deteriorating. I shared my thoughts about the afterlife with Jack, but he didn’t believe. I jokingly told him to give me a sign that I was correct after he passed away.
It turns out, Jack delivered! When I was at his funeral, the name Peter popped into my head. I remember asking myself, “Who’s Peter?”, when the man sitting next to me introduced himself. He was Peter! He and Jack were best friends since they were two years old. I felt a great sense of calm, knowing for certain that it was possible for people to connect to their loved ones after they pass away.
I didn’t have another spirit connection until about ten years later when my psychic development teacher began teaching me how to become a medium. She taught me specific exercises to use, such as holding an object that belonged to the deceased and looking at their photograph in order to establish a connection. Who would have thought that I would go from learning about therapeutic techniques supported by extensive research to waiting for spirts to come through as I stared at their photographs! Ah, the twists and turns of life and the hereafter.
Years ago, someone told me that a friend of hers could see and communicate with angels. Even though I considered myself to be open minded, I remember feeling very skeptical. I never would have believed that I would eventually develop the same gifts.
When I was about 19 years old I began having psychic dreams. Some were completely irrelevant, like dreaming that my bike tire was flat and discovering the flat tire the next day. Others were terrifying. I dreamt 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 alive. My friend died tragically a year and a half later. Every detail of my dream came true.
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. I was working with a man who claimed to be enlightened at the time. He said his mission was to teach women how to become enlightened, but unfortunately he tried to take advantage of me instead. He told me that something was probably 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 knew they were angels, so I asked them to give me a sign by playing Pachabel Canon on Pandora. Moments later Pachabel Canon came on. Then I asked the angels 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.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I’ve worked as a mental health therapist for children, teens, and adults for years. As my ability to communicate with the angels grew stronger and my psychic and mediumship skills developed, I felt limited in my work as a therapist. As an intuitive healer, I am able to combine my knowledge in mental health and my ability to see and channel angels with my skills as a psychic medium to provide an alternative modality to mental health counseling. I also use Reiki, a form of energy healing, to provide a holistic approach to emotional and physical healing. I have been able to help children, teens, and adults decrease symptoms of anxiety, depression, and physical pain, heal relationship issues, cope with grief and loss, and increase self-esteem. I’ve also been privileged enough to help some clients develop their own psychic gifts! I enjoy participating in psychic fairs and providing readings at psychic parties, but my true calling is to serve as a vessel to the angels so I can help people heal. I am so honored to walk with my clients on their sacred spiritual paths and help them become their highest selves.
