About Me

I’m the author of three books, a journaling coach, and coordinator of the Rochester Druid Brigade. I struggled with anxiety and low self-worth for many years, chasing approval and doubting myself. After a few years in acting and voice work where I learned techniques to be express my voice and be more present, I started teaching College Preparatory English. My book, “Why Zarmina Sings: 18 Steps to Live and Learn Beyond Anxiety,” includes anecdotes as well as tools I incorporated in my teaching to help me and my students bypass fight/flight/freeze to accelerate learning.

After meeting and working with energetic healer, Jen Ward, I learned Jen’s SFT tapping protocols and how to communicate in energy. With Jen’s help, I let go of deep conditioning so that I could help others. (I highly recommend getting a session with Jen.) 

I live with my family and as many animals as possible which now include my two cats Max and Flo and my dogs, Casey and Lily. I have an M.Ed from Lesley University. You can contact me for journaling classes or anything related to trees and the Druid Brigade at

Rochester Druid Brigade

I also work with trees through the Druid Brigade Meetup.

I’ve seen my relationships improve, found a deeper connection to my purpose and experienced healings by listening and working on behalf of trees.

I love helping others reconnect to nature and their higher purpose and will work with anyone anywhere to share information on the trees.

I write on my blog about the healing and revelations that come from communing with the trees as well as other topics.
