      Intuitive counseling is counseling utilizing contemporary skills, and includes the use of one's intuitive abilities to receive information from multiple sources, such as insights, energy reading, spirit guides, ancestors, and the Divine. Spiritual guidance is counseling that includes spirituality to help with healing, empowerment, and transformation. There are as many paths to the Divine as there are people, therefore, the understanding of one's spirituality is subjective to each client.
     My specializations include body image and self-esteem, love and relationships, sacred sexuality, identity formation, self-empowerment, life transitions, grief and loss, death and dying, mind-body connection, archetypes, multiculturalism and GLBT identity and issues, and spirituality and growth.
     My practice also includes Goddess psychology, creative expression, dream work, Reiki energy healing, crystal healing, intuitive readings, and shamanic healing practices. I am a certified reiki practitioner, initiated shamanic healer, and priestess of the Divine Feminine.
