I am a Spiritual Mentor for women who are ready to receive their soul purpose.

Your life was coasting along and wham! A crisis hit. A beloved died. A terminal diagnosis upended your world. A relationship reached a dead-end. And you began to wonder: What's the point of it all?

A part of you knows there's more to life than pain and loss. Your heart longs to care about what truly matters, to make a difference in the world. To live an inspired and inspiring life.

But you're struggling in the confusion of "what's next?"

I'm a Spiritual Mentor for women who have experienced deep loss but know there's a deeper purpose to their lives. I help them go from confusion and self-doubt to creating a life of happiness, meaning and purpose.

A big loss upended your life. You're heartbroken, confused, and lost. The Big Life questions haunt you. You feel it in your bones, that there's a deeper calling you're here to serve, but you have no clue what that is.

  • Do you feel that you're here to make a difference?
  • Are you lost and overwhelmed trying to figure out what to do?
  • Does your daily life feel stale and uninspired?
  • Do you wonder: am I ever going to find my purpose in this lifetime?
  • Are you up in your head and feeling directionless?
  • Are you wondering why your inner guidance never speaks to you, or why you just can't hear it?


You don't have to stay stuck in your head or despair that you'll never find your purpose.


  • Waking up in the morning feeling energized by your passions and purpose
  • Feeling motivated about  creating your legacy
  • Healing the fears and doubts that have kept your passions hidden and locked away all these years
  • Remembering and reconnecting with the purpose you came here to live
  • Being able to uncover the story of your soul so that you can contribute to the world and make a real difference
  • Living a life that truly matters to you

This is the work we do together.

My 68-year-old mother's death eight months after my family and I relocated from Southern India to Chicago was the gut-wrenching event that started my own journey.

Working with a spiritual mentor to heal my broken heart was the first step toward finding my way to my purpose.

Since then I've published three books, served as a bereavement volunteer in hospice, interviewed numerous inspirational figures like Scarlett Lewis, Benjamin Allen, Suzanne Falter, PMH Atwater and Gerry Gavin, who have connected with, and are living their passions and purpose.

I've had the honor of serving clients all over the world.

If you're ready to listen to the voice of your soul and serve your purpose in the world, you're in the right place.

I was very sick with Collagenous Colitis and had found no relief through the medical profession. I’d had this condition for seven months and was beginning to think that I would have it for the rest of my life. I was getting quite depressed. I was also carrying a lot of guilt about things that had happened I my life decades ago.

Uma has the gift of unconditional listening. She listened to my problems with no judgment, only support and help. She helped me alleviate my symptoms by bringing closure to past issues involving my ancestors.

I’m now happy and wake up in the morning and look forward to beginning a new day. I’m positive and write in my journal every day. My stomach feels much, much better. I feel better in mind, body, and spirit. I am grateful to Uma for her support and guidance. Her expertise and calm manner helped me turn my life around. I feel blessed that I was led to work with Uma.

Before I started working with Uma I was confused about where all the sadness I was feeling was coming from. My 19-year-old son had recently moved out, and I knew I was proud of the decision he had made but was overwhelmingly sad about it. She helped me realize that I was feeling the effects of deeper, older traumas and that my son moving out had triggered older trauma.

 When I started working with Uma, I was sad most days and struggled to go about my daily responsibilities without crying about them and during them. I was bringing negativity and sadness into all aspects of my life.

I felt very loved, supported and heard during our sessions together. I was allowed to voice my feelings. After starting work with Uma many different avenues of healing became apparent in my life. By opening myself up to healing and asking for help, I was given answers in many ways.

I no longer awaken in a panic about what I did “wrong” yesterday or what I need to do to “fix” it today. I don’t have the overwhelming feeling of “where is this coming from.” Today I am more compassionate towards others. When I wake up in the morning these days it is with a prayer in my heart.

When I came to you, I was in a very negative mindset. I was very emotional and stressed. I was feeling guilty of all the things I didn’t get to say or do for my brother.  I was feeling very sad and scared of losing my father since he had just been diagnosed with Stage 1 cancer. I was basically a hot mess.

Every session I had with you was so helpful in letting me see things from a different perspective. You always heard me out and answered any question I had. I never felt rushed to end our sessions. I really loved that.

Today I feel happy and blessed. I am no longer waking up sad and anxious. I am seeing things in a more positive perspective. I am more compassionate. I am more grateful about the things I have.  I am trying to live more in the present.  I am slowly starting to accept I have no control over certain things and to trust in God that his timing for everything is perfect…even if it’s painful.

When I started working with Uma, I was in a pretty uncomfortable place. Things I thought that I had laid to rest were creeping back into my life (like anxiety & dwelling on negative past experiences), and I knew something had to change.

My usual methods provided some relief, but I wanted a deeper transformation – a more significant shift. Uma’s process unfolded harmoniously to lead me out of my suffering and into a place of peace.

I now feel forgiveness and compassion for people towards whom I once had quite a bit of anger, and a sense of empowerment around my ability to create what I want for myself, regardless of challenges and setbacks that I’ve experienced. I am open to the possibilities of the day and feel that I have the capacity to take things as they come.

I had the great opportunity to experience Uma's beautiful method of helping others. I was struggling with the loss of a close family member.

Uma was very compassionate. I got off our calls feeling lighter and confident that I'll get through this hard time with the advice and tools she gave me.

When I began my first session, my heart was heavy, and when we drew our time together to a close, my heart felt light. You helped me get in touch with a part of myself I have ignored for way too long, the part of me that is simply human with all of the physical and emotional needs that I have been denying myself. The result is a new perspective on how my pain can be acknowledged without destroying me...even welcomed and loved for how it is serving me.

What I liked best about working with you was the gentleness you exude. You have a gift for imparting wisdom lovingly. Bless you for all the light you are bringing to the darkness in this world.
