Spiritual Needs

  • For many people , the integration of their spirituality in the healing process is imp ortant
  • Incorporating spiritual beliefs and practices in healing work, relational counseling, and the human growth and development process was an integral part of my training and important to me as well 
  • I can help facilitate this process of spiritual integration, as you are invited to bring to the conversation your personal spiritual beliefs, practices, and values 
  • I can also bring to the table insights and wisdom gleaned from 18 years studying and practicing Buddhism and Eastern spirituality, as well as walking the Good Red Road of Native American spirituality
