5 Feng Shui elements

  1. Water nourishes Wood.
  2. Wood feeds Fire.
  3. Fire, when it turns to ash, creates Earth.
  4. Earth, as it condenses over time, turns to Metal.
  5. And Metal enhances the life-giving properties of Water.


A trigram helps you find your element and how that is compatible or not with your potential partner. When we know our own elements and the elements of people in our relationships, you are able to notice patterns that come up in those relationships. By noticing the changes and patterns inside, you are able to perform necessary and beneficial changes outside.

Women and relationships

The biggest desire is to be inside a relationship where someone can see you fully for you and love you for you, well that’s not possible if they can’t even see you, truly, and if we’re not showing up as ourselves. (Charmaine Mitchell)
There needs to be acceptance of loving ourselves and showing up for who we are, because then what we need and want can come to rise too. When women truly appreciate themselves, the negative energy of being with partners who do not treat you the same or right falls away.



I am a licensed Psychologist and Certified Eating Disorder Specialist. While I may have over 20 years of clinical experience, what I also have is the experience of having been a patient who had an eating disorder as well. One thing that I never had during all of my treatment was someone who could look me in the eye and honestly say to me "hey, I've been there. I understand". Going through treatment for an eating disorder is one of the hardest and scariest things to do. I remember being asked to do things that scared me. Things I now know ultimately helped me to get better. But, at the time, I had serious doubts and fears about it. If even one of my providers had been able to tell me "I know it's scary, but I had to go through that part too. Here's what will probably happen...." then perhaps I would not have gone in and out of treatment so many times. My own experience ultimately led me to specialize in treating eating disorders. I wanted to be the therapist I never had; the one who "got it". I will be giving you my perspective and information as an expert and clinician who has been treating patients for over 2 decades. But don't just take my word for it...keep listening to hear the truly informative insights and knowledge guest experts have to share. I am so happy you are here!
