The Center for Healing, Growth and Change
I will help you attain the results you seek through my experience and expertise and my sensitive, caring approach. I offer a variety of comprehensive services, from counseling to holistic medicine.
I believe that every human being is created and designed with four dimensions - emotional, physical, mental and spiritual. I believe that growth and change is best achieved by healing and balancing all four dimensions- mind, body, heart, and soul.
My spiritual counseling is ultimately concerned with helping people build and enrich their relationships. The essence of being human is in my relationships: with others and ultimately with the Sacred Source of Life itself.
I believe that there is a distinction between "healing" and "curing". I consider "curing" to refer to attending to the disordered physical or psychological parts of a person. I consider " healing" to mean my personal response to and meaning of the experience.
I believe that "spirituality" is grounded in a holistic framework which recognizes humans to be whole, integrated, mind-body-spirit beings in continual interaction with their environment.
I believe that it is through their relationships that human beings are guided to find the real meaning and purpose in their lives.
