Religion and spirituality are practical tools built out of our beliefs. Even if you have never had a direct experience of a higher intelligence, or have and aren't ready to talk about it with your spiritual community, I am happy to honor and entertain your most absurd-sounding experiences because it is my belief that there is a practical power and purpose in that awakening.
Personal issues often effect an entire family unit, and mental illness can be straining for those who love you. Get support from a counselor that understands Family Dynamics and can support change for everybody that makes sense and values each member's perspective.
As an adult child of an alcoholic (ACOA), I have struggled with issues of self-esteem and codependence most of my adult life. The behaviors we used to survive in our tumultuous families can sabotage our current relationships. Beginning with simple principles of self-love, you can grow.
Communication breakdown? Infidelity? Addiction problems? Work/Play balance off? These things can push us to the brink when life is already stressful. What you need is someone who has been there and can guide the process naturally. I am confident that together we can create lasting changes in your most intimate relationship using a few simple principles.
Experiencing grief can be crippling, and is a very personal experience. No two people process grief in the same way. If you or your family suffer from loss it can feel unbearable and important parts of your life can feel small. I have been through grief and loss personally, and will use my unfortunate wealth of experience to support you and your family through it.
Understanding yourself is an essential part of improving your life and managing stress. I have committed the past ten years of my life to understanding consciousness and studying philosophy, spirituality, and consciousness. I offer you a fun and memorable way to understand what I have learned and practice applying what you learn. You won't find this information in self-help books or the internet.
Adjustment Disorder, Anxiety
Somewhere along the way life sped up. Looking at a monthly calendar can induce vertigo. Feeling busy and seeing the world "fall apart" is not an individual experience, to be endured in silence. We are living Alvin Toffler's Future Shock while bombarded with Climate Change in Orwell's 1984. I am deeply sorry if all of this is news to you. If not, let's come together and have that, at least.
