I am a Freelance Writer, Researcher, Artist, Activist, Entrepeneur, and offer hypnosis sessions.I also wrote two instructional programs, for professionals like myself, to help children who have or are suffering(i.e., trauma, death, divorce, etc.) When the programs are used correctly, individuals will gain a greater insight on how to teach children relaxation, meditation, and the use of hypnosis so they may have the opportunity to learn or relearn imperative 'life skills', lost (due to trauma, etc.)during various developmental stages. Adults who suffered as children also benefit greatly from hypnosis. You can retrain your brain as well as change your thinking. It is only spontaneous "thoughts" we have no control over. How we "react" or "act" on those thoughts is what we can change.

“The Deity” was taken from my first published book “A Different Kind of Love” which includes poetry I wrote when I was sixteen years of age. This particular piece was written during my early twenties., a time in my life when I fell in love with God. It did not come to fruition from some idea or thought suggested by a friend, but rather a very deep place from within me. Whenever I write poetry that rhymes; verses come so quickly yet they never seem to flow freely. The beauty of writing free-form, negating the pressures of rhyme and poetic measure; allow my thoughts to flow freely across the page. I hope my words touch you as they did me when I experienced the following:
When your heart cries out
yet your voice never sounds
and everyone seems distant,
God is listening.
When you’re choking with fear,
from unknown enemies,
and your mind begs surrender;
God is strength.
When everyone has forsaken you,
and your touch, touches no one;
God is feeling.
Go to Him,
who awaits eagerly
for your acceptance,,,,
