A space for Life to thrive— As we gently guide the process in a transformational direction, both the inner and outer life are enriched.  


Learn Pathways of Transformation for guiding both yourself and your clients.

Outstanding professional skills, plus deepening your personal healing journey. A nurturing learning space and supportive community.

Practical skills training is the focus.

Experiential, humanistic and transformational.

Integrative: somatic (body sensation level), cognitive, emotional, spiritual, and meaningful action, drawing from a wide spectrum of modalities.

The humanistic foundation consists of Eugene Gendlin’s profound inner-experiencing process, focusing, and Carl Rogers’ Facilitative Conditions of warmth, constructive authenticity, and empathic listening.

Inner conflict and a crushing inner Critic are common issues. Increased inner harmony, Wholeness, energy, and flow result from Transformational Integration of Inner PartsTM.

A variety of transformational tools include releasing limiting beliefs and healing the past.

The processes transform, strengthen, and uplift: Clients are not left spinning their wheels in their heads, nor stuck in re-living their pain. Instead, we start with helping clients connect with—and continue to develop—an inner Core of strength and resource, which acts as a steadfast support during the deep work of inner healing.  And when working with their life issues, clients are consistently guided in a Life-enhancing direction.

Relationship Skills are included (win-win conflict resolution), plus the Expressive Arts.
