“Counseling can be a journey for both you and me as we enter into the mysterious, finding clues along the way to uproot, unravel and change old patterns. New freedom and choices to improve your life are created to find peace and joy. Tools to light your inner flame awaken your Truth within. By entering into the mysterious, what wants to be expressed is inspired. Your Truth within shines as the old issues and layers peel away.  You awaken to the process revealing your masterpiece within. And in doing so, you come to know, realize and honor the masterpiece that you already are and have always been.”
