Private Counseling and Inner Healing Sessions:
Counseling and Inner Healing sessions are available to local residents and out of town visitors by appointment only. Counseling (“talk therapy”) seeks to increase clients’ awareness of their own strengths and inner wisdom, as well as the situations and issues that impede their personal growth and family harmony. Interpersonal dynamics and communication skills are often addressed.
Inner Healing sessions are conducted with the client in a meditative state such that his/her own highest guidance is more readily perceived. In other words, the clarity, insight, and release of emotional blocks comes directly to the client internally, rather than at the suggestion of the therapist. Inner Healing sessions are especially effective in resolving emotional blocks resulting from past trauma and abuse, and in integrating the aspects of the self that may have been separated during traumatic experiences.
I most enjoy working with clients who are willing to look within and accept responsibility (not blame) for their thoughts, feelings and behavior. I feel especially honored to work with clients who have had traumatic childhood experiences, including sexual abuse. Although these events can have devastating consequences, I have found that survivors of childhood trauma can also be catapulted to higher than usual levels of consciousness and well-being when the traumas are healed. In other words, therapy is a very gratifying journey to walk with a client.
Healing the source of the symptoms, rather than their control or management is the goal. I am accepting and respectful of the client’s individual beliefs and lifestyle. As a long-time resident of Big Bear, I am familiar with the organizations, activities, groups, meetings, etc. in the community, and often refer clients to life enhancing resources.
We are fully conscious beings, even as preborns, and we interpret our experiences from the start. We come to conclusions about ourselves and the world as a result of these interpretations. The conclusions, particularly those made in the earlier years, are based on subjective, and therefore distorted perceptions. All of our experiences, perceptions, beliefs, thoughts and feelings are recorded and stored in the energy field we refer to as the mind. Any limited, negative or false beliefs may be considered “misconceptions” as compared with the perfection of the true Self.
Misconceptions tend to group up and become encapsulated around themes, trauma or age, and may appear to us internally as inner children, roles that we play in life, or archetypal/symbolic forms. These encapsulated consciousnesses, “inner selves”, can interfere with our direct connection to our own higher consciousness, which guides us along our inner path of personal healing.
By the time we are adults, we have so many subconsciously held misconceptions, that we have lost sight of our own inner beauty, uniqueness and purpose. We also tend to distort our perceptions of external events to conform with these misconceptions. In essence, misconceptions serve as a cloud around a brilliant light, keeping it from shining its brightest.
Inner Healing Process
Each of us is truly God’s gift to the world. God’s gift to each of us is an inner guidance system that helps us unravel the network of misconceptions and encapsulations to find our way back to wholeness, clarity and truth. Learning to access one’s own higher consciousness, which is capable of correcting misconceptions from within, starts us on the natural path of inner healing. Understanding how to direct the higher consciousness to work with the encapsulated selves is part of the knowledge needed for rapid transformative personal and spiritual growth.
The Inner Healing Process can be pursued, to any desired level, with the following potential outcomes:
- Release of false and limiting ideas about the self, others and the world.
- Acceptance and unification of the self, unleashing creative energies.
- Clarity regarding one’s purpose.
- Continued attainment of higher levels of awareness.
