As the mother of 4 daughters, including one with cerebral palsy, Marian brings life experience along with mental health expertise to each and every session with you. Marian can work with you on how to "repair" relationships from daily living issues to spiritual direction issues. Together, you and Marian explore what is necessary for you to live your life to the fullest and to "come home to yourself".
Spiritual Direction is an old term for "Spirit Companion" or "Spirit Friend". It is my belief that we all want to understand more about our relationship with our soul and that of a creator in our midst.
Soul is energy, aliveness, passion - soul gives energy and alerts us to when we're in the presence of energy-givers or energy-drainers as we move through our life. Soul holds together the contradictory and conflicting aspects of us; namely, our integrity or integration of our opposites. Soul lets us know when we are acting and being with integrity and when we are off the path of integrity.
