Engaging with your soul
When you were a child, you were very well acquainted with your spiritual nature. In fact, your deepest connection was to your soul and to the spiritual world. But society trained that out of you and taught you to filter all communication and thought through your ego. We can restore the connection to your soul using very practical techniques to reestablish the language that your soul uses to communicate: symbol and metaphor. You have simply forgotten this magical dialogue. Let me help you repair the damaged connection to your spiritual energy so that you can learn and practice different techniques that may provide spiritual and psychological healing. Soultending can be fun!
Soultending is an integrative approach to psychotherapy that encourages you to work with your spiritual nature, not just with your mind/body connection. It is the meeting point of science and spirit, the combination of your mind, body, AND soul. We often forget that there are three distinct aspects to our humanity, and our soul tends to be neglected in our healing processes. Apart from prayer, the spirit remains relatively voiceless, and we have neglected the powerful healing energy that it offers to our lives. Modern forms of therapy have focused exclusively on our mind, retraining thoughts and behaviors to create changes in our lives. Naturally, Soultending utilizes all of these treatments, but Soultending invites your spirit to be the center of your healing process. Soultending delves deeper into the core of who you REALLY are. It is a unique counseling experience that helps to connect you with your soul in order to provide insight, positive life change, and growth in all areas. It can be a stand-alone therapeutic process, or it can be an exciting addition to any other therapy you are currently engaged in. Soultending can reduce anxiety, depression, anger, or addictive patterns. You can even use it to achieve greater personal Awareness. Soultending can also be a spiritual life coaching activity that might help you to discover your own personal destiny and purpose in life. After all, we are all unique and special, and each of us has a powerful energetic nature. Let's work together to readjust your life path...
Your soul is calling out to you.
Together, we can answer the call.
Your Journey Awaits...

Spiritual Life Coaching
integrative Therapy doesn't just blame the past for your present circumstances. Instead, it looks at the influence of an unfolding future. Soultending helps you to transcend your ego state to explore possibilities instead of merely focusing upon negative conditioning that the ego craves in order to feel dominant and in control. come in to discover the symbolic language of your soul to learn how your future is shaping your destiny instead of embracing an ego that keeps you tied to a painful, tortured past.
