Where your talents and the needs of the world cross,
there lies your vocation. – Aristotle
I appreciate the experience of being fully present with someone and, in that connection, finding that the intuitions that arise in me are often just what needs to be said, revealed, or asked, just what my client needed to hear. This happens by not reaching for answers, not worrying about making sense, but just remaining attentive to what is happening for my client as well as what is happening within me.
I am honored in the experience of watching another human being finding their own innate source of wisdom and guidance. It is an privilege beyond words to witness another finding and developing their own voice in reclaiming their passion and their power.
This is when an individual truly begins to bloom into a greater experience of their truest Self. That is heaven to me!
We are truly blessed when we discover our own gifts and find how we can be of service to others. Both parties are then empowered and enriched in this mysterious meeting.
EDUCATION, TRAINING AND EXPERIENCE
I have a Masters Degree in Counseling Psychology with Emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. I am a Certified Master Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP), I was formerly a Licensed Practitioner and ministerial student within the non-denominational Spiritual Living Centers. All of this education experience was earned while also holding a professional role in the corporate world for almost 30 years.
All of my previous experience has melded into the ‘toolbelt’ I have today. I have an innate understanding of how the corporate model can affect individuals, as well as an awareness and commitment to the spiritual dimension of our human experience.
