Clinical Consultation

Consultation Groups:

Weaving Shamanic Perspectives into the Therapeutic Process – An Experiential Primer

This consultation group meets twice per month as part of a four-month series in both the Spring and Fall (February through May and September through December) offering clinicians a consistent space in which to anchor as you deemoon and elkpen your own connection to body and soul as resource, while also exploring the use of what I call the seven spokes of shamanic practice (orienting/the directions, the elements, movement, sound, plant energies, animal energies, and ancestral/lineage influences) as archetypal conduits for deep and integrative change as part of the therapeutic process.  Neurobiological and sensory processing underpinnings will also be discussed to help ground this strongly right-brain work in a more left-brain framework.  Emphasis is on the experiential aspect of each exploration with ample time to begin to unpack them through more left brain metabolization and discussion, though there is often some space available within each group session for other inquiries related to private practice development, integrative synthesis of your own theoretical interests, and case consultation.

Spring 2019 Series: 8 meetings on Fridays (2/8, 2/22, 3/8, 3/29, 4/5, 4/19, 5/3 & 5/17) from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at The Healing House

Investment: $600 – also payable in installments per session or per month

Limited to 5 participants.

CEUs are available for Social Workers and Professional Counselors.

 

Weaving the Shamanic – Going Deeper

This 9-month bi-weekly consultation group for licensed clinicians is for those who have completed at least one series of the experiential primer listed above or who have some significant experience in working with core shamanic principles in their own personal and/or professional work.  The emphasis in this group is on deepening members’ practical weaving of what I call the seven spokes of shamanic practice (orienting/the directions, the elements, movement, sound, plant energies, animal energies, and ancestral/lineage influences) through more in-depth case consultation and personal exploration within the context of a closed group of like-minded peers with whom a greater level of safety can develop over time.  There is no set experiential component with this group other than a brief facilitated embodied arrival period at the beginning of each group, though we may weave in applicable experiential opportunities if/as they organically surface to support embodied learning and deepening.

2019 Series: 19 bi-weekly meetings on Tuesdays (except for a 4-week break in August) from 9:30 – 11:30 a.m. at The Healing House

Specific dates are – 3/12, 3/26, 4/9, 4/23, 5/7, 5/21, 6/4, 6/18, 7/2, 7/16, 7/30, BREAK, 8/27, 9/10, 9/24, 10/8, 10/22, 11/5, 11/19, 12/3

Investment: $1425 payable in installments per session ($75) or per month ($150)

Individual Consultation

One-on-one consultation sessions are available for those clinicians and health and wellness professionals who are interested in deepening their theoretical and experiential knowledge of working with high sensitivity, empathic/intuitive gifts, and sensory processing issues by weaving together physiological, psycho-emotional and energetic constructs to better support these phenomena in a more whole-being way.

Please contact me if you would like to schedule an individual consult.
