Practical and ceremonial guidance for women
who want to enjoy the fruits of an enriching,
influential, purposeful, passionate, and powerful maturity


The transition from Maiden and Mother to Queen can be a difficult one, fraught with hard lessons and lots of loss. It takes great determination and courage to confront and embrace the changes brought about by the midlife passage.

It can be of immense value during this daunting time to have the inspiration, advice and encouragement of a counselor/coach/mentor — someone who has been there and done that and is ready to assist you to do the same. It would be my honor to help you make this journey.

During our time together we will develop practical and ceremonial strategies that will empower you to:

  Reevaluate your preconceived notions and old patterns
Reclaim your deepest-held dreams, desires, and ideals
Reinvigorate your goals so that you can fulfill your potential
Redraw the roadmap of your life’s path
Renounce your resistance and impasse
Recharge your passion for life and living
Rejoice in your own beauty and strength
Step into the sovereignty of your own life
  With intention, focus, and an experienced guide, this intense process can become an exhilarating adventure that leads you from confusion to actualization, from crisis to resolution, from doubt to resolve, from fear to fortitude, from lack of self-esteem to evolved, life-affirming spirited strength and self-determination.

Sessions are personalized and geared to the unique individual needs of each client. I create a warm, compassionate, light-hearted, and supportive environment to enable your journey of self-discovery.

My unique approach is based on my extensive knowledge of ancient spiritual wisdom and shamanic healing practices from cultures around the world including intuitive counseling, old wives’ wisdom, breathing techniques, Reiki, multicultural mythology, archetype and symbol, tarot, astronomy, and ritual.

These modalities address the wellness of body, mind, and spirit as a totality. They also remind us that body, mind, and spirit are connected, and that each person is also connected to the community of humankind, to all living things, and to the Earth Herself.

When you retune your alignment to the universal cycles of nature as well as the internal seasons of your life, you are connected to the cosmic power of all possibility.

—George Eliot


Ever since I first introduced The Queen as a helpful archetype for midlife women, I have received hundreds of requests for detailed instructions on how to become a Queen.

"Dear Mama Donna," women would write, "I want to be a Queen, too. How do I access my power? How can I feel good about myself? How do I change my life? How do I find magic and spiritual wisdom? How do I know what to do? How do I learn how to rule?"

The reality is that I cannot possibly know how anyone else will attain her Queendom, I only know how I came into mine, and that is largely through hindsight. The truth, my truth, at least, is that there is no one true truth. We must each find our own way in this world.

As a shaman, I teach through example, but not through dictum. I can and do offer information, exposure, personal experience, encouragement, inspiration, suggestions and support to my constituents, but I cannot - dare not - pass judgment or establish rules and laws. It is simply not for me to say.

When you come to me for help and spiritual guidance, I listen to your concerns and embrace your needs. I pat you on the back, give you a good, swift kick in the butt, or let you cry on my shoulder, as needed. I can tell you what I did in such and such situation, how I did it, what I learned from this or that lesson, but I cannot tell you what you should do. How do I know what your soul needs?

Only you know what you know. I can, of course, aid you in reaching into the well of your own deepest wisdom, and help you to hear the messages from your best inner Selves. And I can offer tools and practices to help you develop the confidence to follow your own purpose, path, passion and power.

A woman who I have been working with recently told me that I had changed her life. "Well, no, of course, I didn't, honey," I assured her. "You changed your own life." The fact of the matter remains that I could not give her what was not already hers.
