Whether you are making a living at it, or contemplating an artform as a hobby, creativity is a rich and sometimes demanding trait to have. As someone with a background in working in the arts, I can empathize with and provide insight for the challenges of the creative life and its impulses. My experience includes visual art, music, writing, theater, and dance...some as hobbies and others as livelihoods. I invite you to contact me if you are facing barriers to more creative expression, trying to balance your talents with other demands, or working in the industry and you want to talk to someone who "gets it."
Spiritual Contemplation involves quieting down, slowing down and turning inward. With meditation, you make a inward spiritual connection that gives you deep love, grace and growth. Meetings occur on a monthly basis to learn practices and explore your experiences. All faiths and spiritual belief systems are welcomed and honored.
Recovery/Discovery of Spirituality
One of the most unfortunate experiences one can have is to be alienated from their spirituality, whether it is due to unrelatable faith formation or spiritual abuse. To whatever extent this relationship has been damaged, it can provide an opportunity to recover a new interaction with divinity that is healed, evolved, matured, and nurturing. I will work with you to set aside painful messages and begin to build trust in an authentic and comforting spiritual life. Some additional aspects of spiritual counseling :
Lessening anxiety and worry, and developing trust.
Resolving hurts and finding relief.
Resolving conflict between personal values and beliefs vs. dogma or societal scripts.
Learning how to listen and attune to spiritual support and guidance.
Removing barriers and mistrust of spiritual love.
Integrating and making peace with unusual events, such as near death experiences for example.
