We all struggle at times in life. We feel our energy diminish, or nothing seems to be going as we hoped it would. Maybe we've lost confidence, or circumstances in the larger world are causing us too much stress. Sometimes we sense that our direction in life could be less bumpy and more clear, but our feet can't find a steady path. 


The methodologies I practice as a spiritual counselor can help remind you of

your true nature and hidden wisdom and encourage you to feel calmer and steadier, and more focused in your day to day life.

Soul Guidance Basics

What is Depth Hypnosis?

The methodology of Depth Hypnosis helps individuals, couples, or families to transform habitual, negative, and disruptive behavioral patterns.  This transformation is achieved through a combination of techniques rooted in traditional hypnotherapy, Buddhist psychology, integrated energy medicine, applied shamanism, and transpersonal psychology. First we work to identify sources of disharmony - places where you keep getting stuck - and then we work on healing, so you can come to live fully in your true, authentic nature at the spiritual, emotional, mental, and physical levels. With compassionate guidance assisting you, this work can be both interesting and nourishing.  


What is Applied Shamanism?

The ancient, worldwide practices of shamanic counseling and healing aim to bring energetic balance to people's lives. In our fast-paced world we're prone to forgetting our connection to Earth, but shamanic practitioners help to restore us to our roots, bringing people into a greater harmony with nature, both inside and outside.


Imagine taking ownership of your own life once you're empowered in this way!

My Training and Experience

I am a certified hypnotherapist and counselor in the methodologies of Depth Hypnosis, Applied Shamanism, and Plant Medicine Integration as taught by Isa Gucciardi at The Foundation of the Sacred Stream in Berkeley, an ordained spiritual counselor, and a relaxation yoga facilitator. I have studied various dimensions of spirituality for decades and have recently added youth mindfulness coach, level 1 herbalism, Amrit Yoga Therapy, Amrit Yoga Nidra facilitation, and yoga teacher certification to my credentials.  My goals as a healer are to help people come to know and appreciate themselves for who they are so that they may live as peacefully and as joyfully as possible.

What to Expect

Typically, initial visits involve discovering a client’s emotional history,

followed by a guided meditation in which the client taps into his or her inner wisdom,

which will be used for support during subsequent sessions.

That said, we never know the direction our session will take.

I base our work on your needs when we meet.

Often, by use of dream work, inner child work, or regression work, a client is guided to release or to heal any unhealthy energy that’s associated with current life problems.  

This process can be very transformative, and clients can often discover

many of their inner truths, particularly when applied over time.
