Earth-Centered Spiritual Counseling
Throughout all religions and spiritual traditions the earth has been revered and honored. As a young child raise in the Roman Catholic tradition I found solace and guidance from hours spent sitting in open fields, hiking along hidden paths in the forest or swimming in the cool lake waters of my home. Often I would speak with blooming flowers or dance with butterflies in the early morning as I waited for the school bus. The innocence of childhood provided an opening to spirit/the divine through nature that was potent and lasting. As I grew older my time in the wild lengthen as well as the yearning to know the love of the divine within myself, and everything around me. Now when I experience struggle and questioning the time I spent in the natural world/wild brings me closer to awakening that awareness of soul self and the divine relationship. Being in a spiritual relationship with the natural world, experiencing the wonder and the guidance that has been provided through this evolving awareness has been life changing.
With the guidance and support of the divine/spirit I offer nature enriched counseling that is specifically tailored to the spiritual intentions and needs of each individual. I call on all of the teachers, traditions and practices I have learned over my years of study and practice, and weave together a combination of daily practices, readings, experiences, rituals, and ceremonies that best serve your needs. I work with a variety of modalities and tools to bring awake that relationship within. I work with individuals, couples, and small groups.
An element to the spiritual counseling I offer is the creation of ritual and ceremonies. I offer guidance and support in creating formalized ceremonies that mark life’s traditions from handfastings/marriages, rites of passage, home blessings, marking a life change such as retirement, successes, and loss.
