There are times when Life seeks to live through us in ways at odds with our personal wishes or plans. Disruption by disease or other health challenges, relationship struggles at home and work, accidents and crises and their accompanying pain and suffering, offer a profound opportunity to begin a journey of self-discovery, deeper meaning and authentic healing.
There is a wise saying that when you hold a hammer in your hand, everything starts to look like a nail. Most traditional and alternative healing seeks to apply a specific expertise or competence to reduce or eliminate symptoms before there is any assessment or understanding on how the disease or crisis or conflict serves a deeper process.
When I began working with Jon, I was at a point in my life where I was going to explode, and what I needed was a tremendous amount of Guidance for Healing. And that's exactly what I'm getting. I knew that I needed to talk to someone, and also knew that I needed and wanted someone who wasn't a "traditional therapist", but someone who understands how the mind, body and soul all need to be attended to...
I grew up in the Chicago suburb of Glenview. Immediately after graduation from Loyola Academy and while attending Loyola University full-time I had the good fortune of being hired as a night and weekend clinical laboratory technologist at a teaching hospital. Trained by the hospital’s pathologists, I became intimately involved with many aspects of clinical laboratory testing and correlation of results with patient clinical presentation.
Life has a most wondrous way of providing us what we need and not necessarily what we want. When this occurs, often accompanied by the pain and suffering of physical or psychological health challenges, we are called upon to move past the outer layer of symptoms, to look deeper into our soul and to reclaim the essence of our Being. This is how collapse, loss, abrupt change of circumstance or crises serves to provide an opportunity for authentic healing. Through online therapy sessions, we can begin to address these challenges and develop strategies for personal growth and emotional healing.
Thank you for taking a few moments to consider guidance for your authentic healing. For the last 25 years I have been devoted to a path of healing which includes body, mind and soul. As a truly integrative approach to wholeness one aspect is not preferred or valued over another. Consciousness work, shadow work and dream work are essential to this journey as are body and disease symbology for those challenged with physical conditions. After you have had a chance to consider my work please take a moment to quiet yourself and touch into your deeper guidance. From there, if so called, contact me today for a free initial private session.
For all clients I hold the intention of opening to authentic healing guided by soul as messenger of spirit. This is a fundamental layer of being from which embodiment in physical life manifests. It is from requesting, opening to and allowing this guidance along with bringing patterns of self and soul to greater conscious awareness through discussion, dreamwork and dialogue with selves that we progress along the path of authentic healing.
