What is Spiritual Counseling and how can it help you?

Are you conscious, capable, motivated and ready to move through the emotional and energetic blocks that have been in your way?  I help people become free from old patterns, embody their spiritual conviction and cultivate their best self.

In a spiritual counseling session you are listened to and witnessed with compassion and with an intent of spiritual truth and love, for wherever you are on your path. It is an opportunity for you to remember and re-align with what is true for you.

Sometimes that means grieving, or forgiving, or learning to be kind to yourself. Sometimes it means coming to terms with your life and deciding to make changes.

Always it is about being supported in addressing what is up for you. You are encouraged to dream the life you’ve always wanted and to set forth with intention to act in ways that support those dreams.

The intention is to open the door to healing and allow new life experiences and new expressions of self to emerge.

Session vary from person to person, but they can include a combination of somatic based practices, including EFT meridian tapping and mindfulness. These practices help dislodge beliefs and emotions from the nervous system where they are held. It is common in this work for new positive behavior to naturally emerge as the nervous system’s equilibrium is re-established and new energy is released.  

At the end of the session, if you want, you will likely receive a soul-satisfying affirmative prayer to anchor in the changes and insights. Some have called this healing prayer a soul bath.

Our goal is a shift in consciousness that allows you to live more fully as your True Self—open, free, confident, healthy, strong, abundant, grateful and at ease.
