Let’s start with the facts. You are alive. You are loved. You are needed. These may seem like simple and startling statements when your life is bound by fear, loneliness or life-threatening behavior like addiction or suicide. But, it needn’t be and that’s where we become partners in converting your unnecessary and dated patterns into dynamic and thriving habits. I wished I had learned the tools when I was younger! My gift to you is that you are a creation of potential and I’m here and ready to guide you in the direction your life is asking for.
Uncover and heal old belief systems
Teach you tools and techniques for a life of fulfillment
Discover your life’s purpose
Prepare you to resolve issues immediately
Demonstrate the process of self-love
Create personalized healthy boundaries in your relationships
These six intentions are at the core of what I do. I’ve invested in myself by working with life coaches for over a decade and I’ve understood that the pivotal moment in my transition resulted in understanding my experiences while focusing on these six objectives for optimal outcomes.
My clients range from teenagers who have experienced debilitating peer pressure, to parents who have struggled or lost their children to addiction, to businessmen and women who have encountered major psychological blocks in building their companies. I’ve relieved clients of sleep disorders and aided parents and children through depression, divorce and death. I’ve guided them in a new life path by committing to a life of resilience, opportunity and wellness with goals and affirmations within a culture of love and acceptance.
Clarity and creativity go hand-in-hand and to feel clear of undesirable behaviors and unnecessary struggles mean you’re headed towards gratitude and abundance. That knowledge is powerful. I’m here to bring you back to your throne where decisions, thoughts, feelings, and desires are meaningful choices you make with an engaged heart, body, and mind. This creative process of unearthing the dark and becoming the light is awesome. Join me in the light!
After 20 years in front of the camera and behind the scenes, I understand stories and fortunately the story I understand now most is my own. I have heard many people tell me their story from having been intimately involved in these entities.

My name is Pirie and I’m ready to listen.
It first happened when I was five years old. My Mother, who was mentally ill, took me outside in our backyard, told me to kneel down on the ground and put my face in the dirt. Then she put a gun to my head and said, “I have to kill you because your father loves you more than me.” All I remember was crying and begging her not to kill me. Within moments, she walked away without saying a word. I got up and went back into my bedroom and crawled into my bed and fell asleep. Where else was a 5 year old to go? When I woke up, I remember the feeling that I was on my own. No one was going to take care of me, except me…or so I thought. After my father had my mother committed to a mental institution for three years the next day after the incident, I found a pastor and family who lived next door to us and they took me to church. That was the first time I ever heard the word, God. I knew at that moment that someone in a Higher form was taking care of me. I became a believer and seeker that first day I went to church. My awakening began that day. My growth and awakening has continued since that day in 1962.
My favorite spiritual teachers are Drs. Ron and Mary Hulnick. My favorite book is “Loyalty to Your Soul” by Drs. Hulnicks and my fav secular book is Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts. My favorite movie is The Lion King! And The Beasts of the Southern Wild?
In 1998 I tried to end my life by swallowing over 350 pills because my husband asked me for a divorce after we had been undergoing IVF treatments for 2 years. I woke up in the hospital and I remember feeling like my life force was leaving my body. Then I heard a voice and a large African American woman was sitting in a rocking chair next to my hospital bed. I said to her that I was dying. She reached over and took my hand and said, “You aren’t going anywhere darlin. God isn’t done with you yet.” Then she started singing church hymns and it put me to sleep. When I awoke the next morning, my doctor came into my room to check up on me. He said, “Wow! You look like a different girl and your vital signs are great! What happened?”. I said it was my night nurse. Would you please go find her so I can tell her thank you. He did, but he brought in a small blonde girl. I said, No that isn’t her and she nodded yes that she was. Then I told my Doctor that it was a Black woman sitting in a rocking chair next to me. However when I looked over at the chair, it was a normal sitting chair, not a rocking chair. I knew then I had had a special visitor in the form of an angel.
A lot! ha ha My Godfather was Johnny Cash! I had two beautiful children with a different husband when I was 44 and 46 years old NATURALLY! I used to work for His Holiness the Dalai Lama and other spiritual leaders such as Billy Graham, Oral Roberts and Deepak Chopra.
To teach all the tools and techniques that I learned from wise spiritual leaders to heal the pain within me to others. I want to inspire and empower every woman to know what it means to “Own The Throne” of her life!
