Intuitive Counseling

Expressive Arts and Sand Tray Therapy

Rituals for Self Healing

Art, ritual and energy work are all immediate ways to drop out of the head and into the heart of any matter.   You are more than what your mind thinks you are.  You are more than your stories.  And you have WAY more options and freedom than your mind believes. Expressive Arts (including ritual) and Intuitive Counseling engage the physical sensations of the body and the nervous system.  They allow us to move into the nonverbal, nonlinear, dream-like intelligence of images, physical sensation and frequency. They both work to untangle our preverbal confusions, and literally help us to CREATE and integrate new ways of being in our minds and bodies.  With new awareness, sensations, ideas and images, we create new pathways. New maps. And even more wonderfully, both art and energy help us to see that we are the explorers, not the maps themselves!

In our sessions, you can choose to focus on energy work, art, ritual or any combination of these. With Intuitive Counseling we’ll usually sit in chairs, working with inner imagery and physical sensation.  Or, we can use simple arts such as crayon on paper, movement, sand tray, collage or painting.

You don’t have to be facing a particular challenge to benefit from sitting with me. Listen to yourself. You’ll know exactly when and if a visit with me will feel right. Of course, please do call if you have any questions.  We will always address what is important to you.  We'll follow your own, unique journey and agenda.  But maybe like others who sit with me you would like to:

  • get to the heart of the matter and stop chasing your mental tail (or tale)
  • feel much more safe and relaxed
  • feel "permission" to be who you are
  • feel more love - both in the giving and receiving
  • feel more connected to yourself, others and life
  • trust yourself
  • trust life
  • befriend your body
  • know the difference between who you are and what you are feeling
  • treat yourself and others more kindly
  • give up trying to "fix" yourself (you're not broken)
  • honor your own timing
  • calm your nervous system
  • be with yourself instead of against (or without) yourself
  • stop trying so hard
  • feel more peace
  • be aware of over-arching themes and struggle less with details
  • support your own growth and unfolding
  • feel genuine self-respect, self-appreciation and self-love
  • navigate any major life event or transition such as death, divorce, job change, new relationship, relationship conflict, or long-term illness with more ease, love and clarity

Please do call if you have any questions. I am fortunate to know many wonderful practitioners, so I may be able to point you in a helpful direction if sitting with me doesn’t feel like the right thing at this moment.  In the meantime, no matter what is happening in your life, know that you truly are doing great.
