It is my experience that, at our core, we are all whole, well, and complete beings, full of potential and creativity.  My role as a mentor and life coach is to be your companion as you connect with and explore that potential and creativity.  I mentor and coach in areas where I have personally experienced major inner growth. 

 

If you would like to work with me but are unsure if your issues fit those below, please contact me so we can see if I can provide the support you wish. 

 

Transitions

 

We experience many kinds of transitions in our lives.  Some can be very hard and even painful.  All of them, however, present opportunities for significant inner growth.  A transition is a great time to have a mentor/life coach to share the experience with and plumb it deeply.   To read more, please click here.

Aging and Death 

 

Aging comes upon us slowly and presents many physical, mental and emotional challenges.  It is also a time of life in which deep personal and spiritual growth can occur.  In fact, aging itself can become a spiritual practice.

 

Death is neither a popular topic or easy to talk about.  Yet when a loved one is approaching death, or has died, there is a need to grieve, and an opportunity to honor and cherish.  To read more, please click here. 

Spiritual Counseling

 

We live in a time of unprecedented spiritual diversity and freedom, allowing us to find our individual experience of the divine and path to awakening.  The challenge is trusting ourselves to find the most meaningful and skillful path.   We each have an inner teacher who guides us on our path, although it is often hard to hear and discern.  We may find ourselves facing a dark period of challenge, or simply a flat period when our practice seems dry or at a dead end.  At such moments it can be very beneficial to work with a spiritual counselor, mentor, or coach.  To read more, please click here.

Psychedelic Integration

 

The use of entheogens can produce extraordinary experiences and great inner growth.  Like any powerful experience, however, the growth takes time to unfold and be integrated into life.  This integration can be greatly enhanced by working with a mentor who will listen deeply and explore these experiences with you.
