Heart & Soul Therapy

The other day one of my wonderful clients stated that, in my presence, she knew she could honestly and safely share what was in her heart. That was one of the most beautiful and meaningful gifts I have ever received. In that spontaneous moment, she succinctly articulated the healing power of what I call “Heart and Soul Therapy” - therapy which mends your heart by honoring and respecting you as a soul.

These days, there are far too few places in the world where we can completely reveal ourselves without fear of being judged, labeled, disliked, misunderstood, invalidated, or disregarded in some way. I strongly believe that therapy should be a safe relationship in which you feel all that you’ve gone through and all you will go through has deep meaning and purpose. In Heart and Soul Therapy, all experiences, emotions, and thoughts are respected as they reveal the lessons you are learning this lifetime and your evolution as a soul.  A heart and soul therapist honors this journey.


Over the years, too many people have told me that their therapists do things like text, answer phone calls, eat, or leave to get a cup of coffee in the middle of their sessions!  Some practitioners are chronically late in starting meetings and don’t apologize for their tardiness.  I am left shaking my head. I just don’t see how it’s possible for healers to mend hearts if they are not in total respect of the heart of the soul who sits in front of them.

If you would like to learn more about Heart and Soul Therapy or, if you have questions about therapy in general, I would be very happy to help.
