If you are here to learn how to connect directly with your

loved one across the veil – you are in the right place!

Communicating With Our Loved Ones



Certified Coach | International Coach Federation

After more than 20 years as an 

educator and a parent, I experienced the death of one of my children, my Marine son Chas. 

I was determined to find my son and have a real conversation with him.

The path I discovered has been such a blessing for me. 


With Chas’s help and the assistance of some earth angels, I published a workbook that guides the reader along this same path:

The 21 Day Doorway Across The Veil 


I also offer participants the opportunity to practice connecting with their loved ones in a small group online class. I love leading this event with Chas and am honored to witness the many connections made during a dozen such classes in 2020.
