I love teaching others who are on their own soul’s journey. Whether you are learning about intuition or telemental health, I am here to be of service. I guide you to shine your light. I also guide people who want to guide others to shine theirs…
If it has to do with wellness and helping people discover their soul’s purpose, I’m THAT girl! I guide others toward deep restoration and new beginnings.
Let’s start here (check all that apply). I’m here because I:
- want intuitive insight into my life- my physical, emotional and spiritual health, my relationships, my career.
- long to be able to guide others on their own path to wellness- to become a coach, energy healer or intuitive practitioner.
- am a mental health professional and I want to learn new and innovative ways to work from a distance or incorporate alternative approaches into my practice.
- love personal growth that doubles as professional development.
And here’s the GOOD NEWS! There is no wrong answer. If any or all of the above apply, you’re in the right place.
Who am I?
I’m an intuitive, coach and spiritual teacher , and it’s my goal to help individuals through a holistic approach in discovering balance, peace and harmony in their personal and business lives. Although I do not practice as a psychotherapist anymore, I still hold a license as a mental health counselor (LMHC). I hold a Doctor of Theology (D.Th.) in Multifaith Spiritual Direction and I am also certified as a coach and aromatherapist. I am a Reiki Master Teacher and I hold additional certificates in the healing arts.
I am also a mother to my cat. I am a friend to many. I am a daughter to my mother and a lover of pretty things like bone china tea cups, doilies, and beautiful victorian lamps. I surround myself with byzantine art, flamingos and crystals, and I love incorporating essential oils and oracle cards into my moon rituals.
I have found my tribe- my soul family and it grows daily. I am also part of a prescribed tribe by birth- GRITS- Girls Raised in the South!
My maiden name is Poulimenos and that’s a nod to my Greek heritage!
I am sometimes called the “Practical Pixie” because as woo-woo as I can be, I can also be very analytical and logical (I used to conduct forensic mental health evaluations for the court). I am an introvert and happy to be a geek-girl so that is why I also have a penchant for social media, avatars and telemental health. In 2008 I co-founded the Online Therapy Institute and I am still very active as a thought leader and educator in the field.

My mission in life is to empower individuals to shine their light, personally and professionally. I’ll guide you to take control of your wellness via online wellness consultations, intuitive readings and personal growth courses. This same process is available for professionals and professionals-in-training who wish to learn from me and work with others.
The short version…
Over the past several years my focus has shifted from traditional and online psychotherapy to complementary modalities including Energy Healing, Aromatherapy and Wellness Coaching. The shift happened as I struggled with my own health issues and I found wellness by embracing alternative methods of healing. As I found my own balance, I realized I no longer wanted to work as a psychotherapist, rooted in the culture of medicine, disease and diagnosis. Don’t get me wrong. I respect modern medicine. I just decided I wanted to focus on wellness and optimal health from a holistic framework and so the shift began.
This experience has been a “coming home” in many ways. I have always embraced holistic approaches to health and wellness even before my own personal health crisis, and now I have come full circle to a time before my formal mental health training. I finally came out of the closet as an intuitive and psychic and now I intentionally bring those gifts to my work as well. I have been teaching therapists, coaches and healers for most of my career and I continue to do so, mentoring others who are on similar journeys embracing health and wellness. And here is the rest of the story (long version).
So while I’m a still a big fan of…
traditional and online psychotherapy, I restore, I teach and I guide you to shine your light through holistic approaches that stay above the wellness line and innovative methods that are on the cutting edge.
My approach is all about YOU!
