Education and Mentoring
Using Self-Awareness To Initiate Change From The Inside Out


The doors to the world of the wild Self are few but precious. If you have a deep scar, that is a door, if you have an old, old story, that is a door. If you love the sky and the water so much you almost cannot bear it, that is a door. If you yearn for a deeper life, a full life, a sane life, that is a door.

Clarissa Pinkola Estés

The answers we are seeking often lie within us; the symptoms and problems we experience hold a promise for deeper engagement with life when brought into consciousness and accepted.

Using techniques grounded in 30 years as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, somatic therapy, and meditation, Mary has developed a creative, experiential process for changing daily habits and behaviors. Working with her opens the door for an exploration of the beliefs, feelings, and needs that are calling for attention so that we may live in balance, bringing body, mind, and spirit back into harmony.
