Nonna's personal, spiritual cultivation includes thirty-seven years of study and work with old-time metaphysicians, Native American Medicine Men and Women, a Taoist channel who teaches energy work and readings, the study of numerology life charts, and encounters with numerous other teachers over the years. As she continues to grow with her practice, her vast array of experiences and disciplines allow her to address, include, and integrate the spiritual beliefs and world outlook of each individual, as well as, provide new contextual frameworks to view life's challenges, identify gifts, and pursue personal dreams.
In addition to working as a "reader" for the last twenty-five years, Nonna has taught psychology (and many other courses) as a college professor, since 1995, and has earned a PhD in Health Psychology and Behavioral Medicines. In addition to her studies in the spiritual arts, Nonna has numerous years of study and practice with classic psychological therapeutic models, family work, twelve-step processes, nutritional and body/mind/spirit healing, complementary, alternative, and quantum medicine.
She believes that teachers are here not to tell us what we already know, but to reveal those parts of ourselves we have not yet explored. We are all undiscovered jewels, and in the process of uncovering our internal sparkle, one may experience internal conflicts, stuck patterns, and may find it difficult to differentiate karma from bad decisions. Nonna specializes in sorting out these elements using a combination of soul examination via her psychic skills and offering sound psychological tools to move through challenges and improve one's life and manage one's karma. Through this process, emerges the sparkle of the gem, a tenfold treasure of the soul.
