What is Soulcentered Counseling?
Souclcentered Counseling (SC) is an approach to healing that sees each of us as having a unique essence, or soul, that is like the seed of our true being that is striving to express itself through us like a flower in bloom. Just like an actual seed, our soul requires the conditions of our life to offer an environment of safety, warmth, light, and wholesome nutrients, in order to move from survival to blossoming.
I strive to offer my loving presence and extensive healing background to the cultivation of the seed within you, by helping you build an internal & external landscape that can support the sprouting of the seed that lies dormant within you. To do this, I will help you recognize your unique soul gifts, address past wounds that are keeping you blocked, identify the deepest values that root you to this earth, and allow your highest calling to serve as the eternal sun illuminating your sacred unfolding path one step at a time.
Online counseling sessions for ease and convenience
I provide online counseling sessions so that you can say ‘yes’ to working together. Instead of the time and energy it takes to come into a physical office, we can speak together from the comfort of your home or during a break during your workday. It is my hope that our healing work together can add immediate value to your life rather than cause additional stress. Because I use only HIPAA-compliant technology for video-conferencing and communication during and between sessions, you can rest assured that your private information always remains confidential.
Free discovery call to see if working together is a good fit
I offer a first 20-minute discovery session free of charge to all new clients, in order to make sure that all questions have been answered and that we both feel good about beginning to work together. This initial discovery session offers us the chance to have our first contact with one another via secure video-conferencing or over the phone. I look forward to connecting with you in this, without any expectation or obligation way, in order to see if working together would be a good fit for us!
Online appointments for easy scheduling and cancelation
I understand that life can be busy and that things can change! That’s why it’s important to me to make scheduling our time together as simple and flexible as possible. My online calendar allows you to schedule an appointment with me at your convenience, as well as to cancel an existing appointment up to 48 hours beforehand. I hope that this platform provides ease and flexibility in your life!
Sliding scale rate to meet your financial needs
Because I am not in alignment with our current economic model, which creates hierarchy, competition, and exploitation of people and our planet, I offer a sliding scale rate for my counseling services in order to offer my counseling services to a wider range of people who may not otherwise feel able to access this type of healing support. Please contact me directly if you are interested in working with me but do not feel able to pay the full rate listed on my appointment page.
HIPAA-Compliant technology use
We live in a time when our private information is not always kept private, and so I want to be clear with you that I will only use HIPAA-compliant technologies when communicating with you or conducting our sessions together. This is especially important to me because in order to do truly healing work together we must trust that we are safe and that our most sensitive information won’t be used in a way that we didn’t intend or consent to.
I was born in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, where I spent my early years playing outside and getting lost on the land with my three brothers and sister. I experienced a deep sense of love and belonging, both to the wild place I came from and the chaotic but unconditionally loving family that raised me. This experience was shattered when my family moved into the city and started to go to school when I was six years old, exposing me for the first time to the reality of pain and disconnection, stress and competition that pervades our society and world in these times.
