Practice Description: What if your symptoms had a deeper reason for being - a soul meaning?

Disharmony indicates being out of alignment with your deepest core of wholeness and truth. Symptoms can reflect the personality being stuck or resistant to a deeper, inner calling. Symptoms can also be problems arising from personal awakening, transformation or spiritual emergence and be misdiagnosed as a mental disorder.

Your issues may be personal AND spiritual. I can help you bring harmony to your personal and spiritual levels of being.

It is painful feeling stuck, confused, in conflict and unhappy. You may be struggling with anxiety, depression, life stresses, relationship problems, self esteem issues, loss and life changes. Perhaps you are feeling more emotional pain than joy in life. Or that patterns and obstacles continue to repeat in your life. I can help you release these blocks and obstacles.

You may also be feeling a deep discontent, a yearning for something more. Or seeking a deeper meaning and connection with something greater, spiritual or universal. Do you ever feel like there is something important for you to do but don't know what? Or feel a deep sadness like you don't belong here? Do you feel a deep connection to nature and sensitive to what is happening to our planet?

My service is to help clients move out of suffering and find true happiness and peace. I can help you release limiting patterns, open to your Intuition, and follow the path that is true for you. Clients learn new ways and awaken to their true natures.

Clients develop inner skills of mental balance, insight, release and a relaxed, open mind. Clients gain greater inner clarity, integration, and self mastery.

Additional services include Dream work, Shamanic journeying, Regression Recall, Past Life Therapy, recall and integration of Close Encounter experiences and non-ordinary experiences, Flower Remedies and more.

I offer an insight-oriented, integrative approach to healing and psychotherapy. With over 30 years experience, my approach unites traditional and alternative therapies, intuition and wisdom traditions.

Clients benefit from my training in self insight, letting go, Meditation, stress reduction, cognitive re-framing and discovering their true inner compass - helping you experience greater harmony, integrity, empowerment and a happier mind.

I can help you release limiting patterns and follow the path that is true for you. office and phone sessions. Available for clients worldwide.
