Alchemy existed in nearly every indigenous culture and is the philosophical foundation of Chinese Medicine, yoga and Ayurveda, the mystery sciences, and modern chemistry. Integrative counseling brings a modern twist to this ancient art. It transforms the 'lead' of our lives- the difficult, challenged, or stuck places- into 'gold': the illuminated qualities of insight, awareness, love, and joy.
Integrative Counseling is an approach which takes your entire being- and your life experiences- into consideration for assessment and treatment. Where traditional counseling methods consider the psychological ramifications of issues and behaviors, integrative counseling assesses and treats from physical, emotional and spiritual contexts.
Our work together can stand alone as a healing modality, or can be integrated with traditional talk therapy. Integrative counseling incorporates flower essence therapy (the use of homeopathically prepared plant medicine), spirituality, movement, life coaching, and psychology to support:
Address the emotional factors affecting your pain, physical symptoms, weight gain or weight loss
Develop new habits that truly support your emotional, mental, and spiritual well-being
Address limiting beliefs and habits that keep you from reaching your goals and awaken your innate capabilities
Improve your focus, concentration, self-awareness, creativity and self-expression
Gracefully navigate stressful life circumstances; moving, job/career change, loss, fertility, parenting, beginning new relationships, or the dissolution of relationships
Cultivate a sense of purpose, clarity, and renewed excitement for life’s possibilities
Transform suppressed or stuck emotions such as anxiety, worry, fear, sadness, anger, and frustration
Cultivate tools for emotional awareness, emotional release and emotional balance
After the untimely passing of the sweetest man I've ever known, my husband, I was in a space where I was desperate and willing to try anything to help me deal with all of the emotional, physical, and mental pain I was experiencing. Therefore, when someone suggested that I get in contact with Oceans & Rivers, I immediately did so and it has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life! This was the beginning of me self-navigating my journey with healing, finding myself and reconnecting with Spirit.
My experience with Oceans & Rivers has impacted and shifted my spiritual perspectives, which has reconnected me to my inner divinity and femininity. I've moved from a place of just believing into knowing. I have learned to be in tuned with my presence so I can receive messages, experience synchronicity, and listen to life.
In connection with my grief, my experience with Oceans & Rivers allowed me to accept, embrace and eradicate my pain, which allowed me to receive the gifts from my grief and rise again.
Lindsay's ability to connect and to relate to me is very different from any other experience I've had in the past. I feel as if she genuinely cares and she reminded me that magic is truly our birth right!
