My clients are looking for support, guidance, and/or coaching through the process of getting to know, understand, liberate, and transform limiting patterns that prevent them from living their most fulfilled selves. My clients range in age from late teens to the elder stage of life. They are curious about approaching old problems in new ways and they are willing to take the plunge. I'm an educator as much as a therapist and I encourage any prospective client to reach out for a free consult.
I work to help you recalibrate your physical experience through processing your emotional and energetic pathways. Together we can pave new energetic pathways to affect present and future change in your behavioral habits and physical body. Through breathing, intention, focus, and visualization we can liberate somatically held beliefs. Intentional living, ceremony, and a regular spiritual practice can also be great tools in holding our truth, our words, and our behaviors in alignment.
The framework of my therapy/coaching explores the relationship of self within the context of the greater whole. What does it mean to be in right relationship with all of the sentient consciousness around us? What is our relevance within all of creation? By honoring our deepest truths may we then connect with the deepest truths of others. I assist my clients in this process.
Intuition and a spiritual connection are what have informed my own healing. My deep connection permits others to find their own connection and to explore and strengthen it. This process will encourage the full flowering of our gifts as we share them. This truth is what we carry as potential in our hearts, what is meant to be shared in order to leave our unique mark in the world.
Trusting the process and embracing our power in any situation can help us grow. This is courage and it walks with us at all times. Sometimes its a little harder to see. I help you find that courage in order to surrender to the process of growth.
There is a divine spark in all things. Each has its own purpose, plan, and destiny. In trusting this truth and respecting the interconnection of all things we recognize our own spiritual selves within the greater whole. From this concept we can begin to recognize our own spiritual power and utilize it to evolve, grow, and celebrate our lives.
Men need support. Men have feelings and need to feel and share them. Feeling vulnerable is part of that process. What are the imprints you've inherited as a man and how may they be preventing you from living and feeling vital and empowered? The fact that I have gone there myself allows me to hold the energy permitting my clients to go there as well.
The concept of two-spirit is paramount in working with these issues. Embodying the spirit of electrical male and magnetic female is a gift and must be recognized as such. As a gay male myself much empowerment and strength has come from uniting these polarities and owning the power of uniqueness as our energy runs along the diversity of this spectrum. We are something far beyond what pop culture and religion designate us.
We'll explore the elements that contribute to your anxiety and how to address each area. From deep conscious breathing, somatic processing, and shamanic journey we'll work to discover hidden elements for understanding and relieving anxious tension.
