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.

The answers we are seeking often lie within us; the symptoms, problems, and dissatisfaction we experience hold a promise for deeper engagement with life when we come into relationship with them and understand their meaning for us.

Using techniques grounded in 30 years as a practitioner of traditional Chinese medicine, somatic therapy, and meditation, Mary guides you in cultivating self-awareness, transforming daily habits, and reclaiming your inner knowing and connection to the natural world. Working with her opens the door for an exploration of the beliefs, feelings, and needs that are calling for attention so that you may both live with more balance and engage in a world that desperately needs your participation at this time.

Mary was an acupuncturist in clinical practice for 30 years and is skilled in the integration of traditional Chinese medicine with psychology and spiritual practice. She is trained in both Co-Active coaching and the Hakomi method of somatic therapy. Hakomi is rooted in the understanding that the body is the gateway to unconscious core beliefs that organize our experience on all levels, including our capacity for change and healing.
Mary has recently completed training in trauma informed care for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault.

Mary practiced Buddhist meditation for many years until she met her Sufi teacher in 2000. Here she has found a clear reflection of her true nature in a mystical tradition that honors the feminine and direct experience of the divine.

Training in all the above informs Mary's teaching and work with clients.

Mary is a Nationally Certified Acupuncturist with a Diplomate in Acupuncture (NCCAOM) and a Licensed Acupuncturist (LAc). She is the author of Rhythms of Change: Reclaiming Your Health Using Ancient Wisdom And Your Own Common Sense (2014).
