Mentorship/Spiritual Guidance Sessions. Mentorship includes clarifying your particular destiny and expressing your gifts in ways that are helpful to the world and deeply satisfying on a soul level. When I do work with someone in a mentorship capacity we typically meet anywhere from every other week to once a month or, occasionally, less often. Participation in community ceremonies or trainings is often part of the learning but not critical, especially if you don’t live in the Bay Area.
Depending on what’s needed, sessions may include: getting your everyday life in balance, strengthening relations with your guides and ancestors, learning to engage spirits of nature, work with dreams and intuitive messages, and transforming your burdens enough to pray with confidence and an open heart. Beyond that, what our path looks like is largely a function of our personal medicine or unique destiny; all tools and techniques are in service to remembering our purpose here and living this purpose with passion and joy for the well-being of the world.
Healing/Counseling Sessions. By the time one is suffering physically or psychologically there is generally some type of imbalance also occurring on a “spiritual” or subtle energy level. Shamanic or spiritual healing seeks to restore balance on these more subtle levels, and, if all goes well, this leads to greater emotional and physical wellness. Traditional approaches to healing are also relational by nature and especially helpful in addressing feelings of disconnect, isolation, and disempowerment.
In addition to individual sessions, healing work may be relevant for couples, families, and groups or organizations. I’m also open to working with younger people if the parent/legal guardian is on board and supportive. In addition to just talking through what’s going on, sessions may include making connection with helpful guides and allies in spirit, ancestral healing (for both their and your sake), soul repair work or calling back of personal essence and vitality, clearing of intrusive or harmful energies from your personal space, and learning energetic and elemental practices for restoring and maintaining balance.
Cost & Location: My rates for individual sessions are $150/session and sessions are an hour and a half in duration. Talk with me if you need flexibility around the cost. In-person sessions are held in Mountain View, CA, and I am available for phone/distance sessions.
Please note: Although I’m a licensed psychotherapist (MFC #46692) with a Ph.D. in psychology, this kind of mentoring and healing work is not psychotherapy. I’m not only saying that for liability purposes; the work actually is a little different, and I do occasionally make doing shamanic healing or mentoring work with me contingent upon also being in regular therapy. If we’re doing sessions, I’m always happy to consult (with your permission of course) with your psychotherapist, M.D., priest, or any other kind of healer folk you might be working if that would be supportive to you getting what you need.
