For as long as I remember I’ve been fascinated with what makes human beings tick.
At five years old when I first heard the word ‘evolve’ I was captivated.
I immediately knew it meant that we’re not here to evolve more arms and legs but that we’re here to evolve in consciousness.
Growing up I had a natural sensitivity to people’s suffering. This awareness developed into a desire to understand how healing and transformation happens. Not surprisingly my early interests gravitated towards psychology, human potential, spirituality and healing.
In my late twenties I started on a spiritual quest. The catalyst was born out of personal struggle with depression and a desire to know my true self beyond feelings of insecurity.
Initially I practiced Buddhist and contemplative approaches to meditation which deepened into an understanding of human consciousness, healing and spiritual evolution. Alongside my studies I developed a career in the fields of education, mental health, criminal justice and addictions.
Two events were pivotal.
The first occurred when I was a probation officer I gained a reputation for being able to form productive relationships with ‘difficult to handle’ and ‘dangerous’ clients.
My ability to form deep rapport didn’t arise out of being strong or threatening. It was born from a deep understanding that no matter how heinous the crime, my clients behavior did not mean they were bad or broken.
The more my undersanding deepened the more I witnessed profound shifts in consciousness unfold in the lives of my clients towards caring, compassion and a desire to serve.
The second was when my father told me he had been diagnosed with terminal cancer.
In an intimate moment he shared how most of his career took place in secret because he was involved in the design of nuclear warheads. He then expressed regret for using his scientific understanding of energy to create weapons of destruction.
As I listened I had an out-of-body experience. I ‘saw’ his higher self pass a baton to my higher self. The message seemed clear. It was time to share how the energy behind life either can be used for destruction or to create healing and peace.
I went on to study with leading teachers of human potential, advanced consciousness, spirituality and healing. In satsang with Pamela Wilson my heart opened to the realization that love and peace is not found ‘out there’ but is the essence of who we really are.
Alongside my studies I remained in close contact with my father and offered support and guidance. In a remarkable display of the power of self healing my father lived for seven active years beyond his terminal diagnosis.
As my understanding of how life and healing works I return again and again to an inner knowing that Love is the mystical essence at the heart of every human being. Capable of healing and transforming all forms of suffering into health, wellbeing, creativity and a way of living and being that serves the whole.
It’s my passion to share the principles that allow us to embody our highest potential. To heal our mind and body, live inside of peace and joy and serve the whole by expressing the essence of who we really are.

On a more personal note…
Born in the U.S. and raised in the U.K, I’m steeped the history and culture of Europe and feel at home in the Pacific Northwest where trees, waterfalls, mountains and trails nourish my soul. Reminding me of the power of our true nature that awakens and guides us to live in harmony with with Life and Love.
The first time I spoke with Fiona I walked away knowing that I had been listened to in a way that I had never been listened to before-this being heard in such a soft and gentle way was so very healing.
Fiona helped me see beyond the confines of my mind and step into the space of what is real and true. With her gentle, listening-with-the-whole-of-herself way, she guided me, moment by moment, beyond the layers of old stories, paralyzing fears and perceived limitations, where I learned there was (and is) a just right, love-infused me waiting for my return.
