As I child, I took refuge in nature, in silence, and in making music. Each fueled my intuitive skills and aesthetic sensibilities. I have practiced yoga and meditation for decades and have been a long-time educator. My formal Feng Shui training, first in Bali with Karen Kingston (www.spaceclearing.com) and later with Jackie Patricia (www.jackiepatricia.com), refined my skills and provided an apprenticeship where I watched over 200 homes and offices shift in style, energy, and form.
Formal schooling and formal training inform my work, but my real training occurs on a daily basis with each new client. Your space is unlike any others. Feng Shui rules and prescriptions matter, but what matters more are your specific wants and needs. Whether we work with architecture plans or just rearranging furniture, lighting, art work, and flooring, we work to express your greatest good and your strongest longings.
Training occurs daily, with practices to refine my seeing: yoga (under the guidance of Scott Anderson (www.alignmentyoga.com); meditation with Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche (www.Tergar.org); Pilates with Colette Stewart (www.movementinsights.com) and swimming.
Feng Shui has been my full-time work since 2005. My client base is Madison, Wisconsin and other Wisconsin locations; Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona; Naples, Florida, Chicago, Indianapolis, and Europe.
Perhaps you've been to a place that feels so great you just don't want to leave. It is both relaxing and stimulating at the same time. Good conversation seems to just happen. Residents and visitors feel welcomed and comfortable. There's a sense of being nurtured by the space in much the same way that we are nurtured in the space of nature. That, in essence, is good Feng Shui.
Throughout history, cultures have named systems for aligning our lives with nature -- outer nature and our inner nature. We use a Chinese name, but the work is not Chinese. It's about you and your world. If you're Italian or Mexican, our work might more fully reflect the cultures of your heritage, the ones meaningful to you. Our purpose is to create a balanced and beautiful space as your refuge -- a place where you feel nurtured and restored, in communion with your own nature.
Think of going to a party where no one wants to leave. The place feels alive. The kind of chemistry we see between actors on a movie screen exists between a home and its occupants, between a home and its visitors. Feng Shui creates chemistry, aliveness, relationship.
Feng Shui also creates focus and increased clarity of mind.
Expect no sleight of hand. The work makes sense and requires no beliefs or superstitions. We work as a team to express your deepest longings. What your mind desires, we create in your space. Relationships? Health? Prosperity? Those expressions find a physical representation in your home, offices, and schools. Freedom from confusion in your space brings clarity of mind, increased energy, and a sense of empowerment. Freedom from confusion is created largely by focus and intention, standards you control and express.
Function and form: Your functions are foremost. Forms contain and express them. Color brightens, enlivens, and awakens you.
Professional training and intuition guide my assessment as we work as a team in your space.
Inventory your functions. Do you have a space for keys, mail, family gatherings, book groups, homework spaces for children, dining with friends. Let’s create the best for home or office with design plans, furniture, color, flooring, art work, lighting, and more. With my professional guidance, we work as a team on behalf of your dreams. Shall we begin?

Clinging to things hurts.
