Intuitive Advising

Intuition is a central feature in my brand of advising. Intuition may be described as inner knowing that is independent of the ego. Ever get a “hunch?” Thank your intuition. Hunches or “gut feelings” seem to come from within but also from somewhere beyond. I encourage advisees to connect with their intuition, which serves as an inner guidance system. Being aligned with our inner guidance empowers us to take inspired action in our lives. I support my advisees’ diverse learning styles and philosophies, valuing and respecting everyone's unique journey through personal development. Each of us has our own path to walk; but we are never alone. I feel deeply honored when my advisees say: “You see me.” Prioritizing my advisees' confidentiality and well-being, I serve as a channel for peace, love, and respect. 

As an Intuitive Advisor, I listen carefully to my advisees. My listening is active AND receptive. My intuitive abilities help me guide discussions. As an Admissions professional, I read and intuit through the written application. Admissions professionals discern which candidates possess the qualities to enhance life on campus. Admissions committees tune into a candidate’s judgment, motivation, and intention. I facilitate an experience that unpacks, uncovers, and reveals what already exists within my advisees: A Master Creator. Each of us possesses a unique creative fingerprint. I support my advisees’ experimentation with channeling their energy, intention, and creativity.  

I hope that you feel called to connect with me along your journey. We are the heroes of our own stories. Word life.
