If you are feeling lost and traditional interventions have not been completely successful, you might consider a Shamanic and/or Reiki session. Sometimes traditional therapies ignore the spiritual and the importance of faith as part of the healing.
My ancestors were curanderos. My personal interest in Shamanism started in college when one of my professors was studying Shamanism with the FSS; however, not until I was at a crossroads in my early 40's did I finally answer the call and follow the path. Shamanism and Reiki have been incredibly healing for me and have helped me build a more balanced life. It is not perfect or always easy but I am happy.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker as well as a Shamanic Reiki Practitioner who provides supportive counseling combined with Shamanic interventions and Reiki healing. My intervention style is short-term, problem solving, and goal oriented interventions with compassion, kindness, and ethics.
My Shamanic training is mostly learned from the Foundation for Shamanic Studies' (FSS) Core Shamanism, such as soul retrieval, extraction, and divination, I also utilize dream journeying as a Shamanic intervention to help clients.
Clients decide what areas in their lives they want to focus on. Sessions can be one-time only with follow-up as needed or on-going.
I am a LCSW who has worked for 27 years as a medical/psychiatric social worker in Los Angeles County, I have been licensed for twenty years. I obtained my MSW from UCLA. My practice is based on ethical guidelines and boundaries in order to create a safe trustworthy space. I am a 2nd generation Mexican-American who grew up in Los Angeles, I speak English and Spanish. I studied and continue to study with the FSS. I consider myself a Dream Shamanic Practitioner and use dream journeys as I work with my Helping Spirits on the best interventions for clients. During sessions I rattle and drum to journey to my Helping Spirits for assistance and I also utilize Reiki if appropriate and/or if specifically requested by the client.
