Transformative Journeys: Waking and Walking Your Unique Path

Welcome

Thank you for your interest in my practice.


I believe within all of us lies a deep wellspring of wisdom, guidance and vitality. 

Yet at various times we encounter inner and outer obstacles which challenge our established methods of navigating our unique life's journey and which obscure or confuse our connection to our inherent knowing of which way to proceed down our own path.


Many see these as moments of crisis, and indeed they often are experienced as such.  

But it is my lived experience, both in my own journey, and in my 15+ years of experience as a helping professional, that, for those so inclined, such moments also offer us opportunities for transformational growth.

Such moments can be doorways, not unlike the wardrobe in the Chronicles of Narnia, leading to a journey of discovery that can fundamentally shift who we know ourselves to be, and how we see and experience our interrelationship with the world around us. 


If you feel called on just such an adventure of Self discovery, I invite you to to peruse (this under construction remodeling of) my site to your satisfaction, and if and when you feel ready, to reach out via phone or email and let me know you'd like to meet and explore whether I might be of assistance to you in this particular stage of your journey. 


I see my role as one of walking along side you, partially as an experienced guide of such journeys, and partially as a midwife assisting a birthing from within you that has its own unique innate genius and directionality beginning to unfold.

Psycho-Spiritual Integration

Our Spirit flows forth from the great Source, the Mystery, the Oneness of all things.

 

Our embodied Soul deeply enshrines the unique particularity of who we were born to be in this great dance of life.


Our Ego navigates the intersection of our inner and outer worlds, storing our historical experiences, assessing our experiences, and developing patterned ways of relating to ourselves and the world around us.


As a result of serious and sustained spiritual practice, trauma and overwhelm, the use of psychedelics, or other forms of initiation, we may become aware of these different layers or aspects of our nature and struggle to weave a harmonious whole way of being-in-the-the-world that skillfully honors the different levels of reality that comprise who we truly are.


Psycho-Spiritual Integration services assist those dealing with such challenges to find their own authentic path, vision, and voice for embodying their unique path in the real world.

Relationship as Mirror and Path

Relationship is at the heart of who we are and all we do. 

Some relationships are especially important to our sense of security, identity and direction in this one precious and finite lifetime. 


I work with couples and moresomes in traditional exclusive marriages and in Polyamorous and other CNM or Open relationships to recognize and realize the growth opportunities inherent in the inevitable frictions and conflicts which arise within intimate partner connections.


When we recognize our experience of our partner as a mirror for exploring important aspects of our relationship with ourselves, and we commit to the particularity of the path presented by the unique nature of the specific other(s) we have been drawn together with, we afford ourselves an exceptional opportunity for 

healing and growth.
