Intuitive medicine has progressed so far in the last decade and I am honored to be a part of that progress. I pride myself in being a bridge between traditional medicine and intuition. It wasn't always easy for me growing up the only daughter of two-physician parents with twenty-five physicians in my family. From age nine, I had dreams and intuitions that would come true. I could predicts illness, earthquakes, even the suicide of one of my parent’s friends. This confused and alarmed me, as it did my parents who were entrenched in the hard-core rational world of science. Luckily, I had many angels in human form who pointed me to my true calling as a physician and taught me how to access and trust my intuition.  Now, I encourage my patients and workshop participants to trust their inner voice always! 

Here is an excerpt from the new edition of my book,Second Sight that recounts my journey to become whole.  One thing I’m certain of: if you follow your intuitive voice, you can’t go wrong. Stay true to it. Intuition is about empowerment, not having to conform to someone else’s notion of who you should be. It’s about being true to yourself, and all the goodness that comes from that.

"I'm a psychiatrist and intuitive in Los Angeles. What I do isn't my job. It's my life's passion. With patients and in workshops, I listen with my intellect and my intuition, a potent inner wisdom that goes beyond the literal. I experience it as a flash of insight, a gut feeling, a hunch, a dream. By blending intuition with orthodox medical knowledge I can offer my patients the best of both worlds. Now, listening to intuition is sacred to me, but learning to trust it has taken years. I've described the details in my memoir Second Sight which is meant to assure anyone whoever thought they were weird or crazy for having intuitive experiences, that they are not!"
