“Nature is the Silent Witness of Intuition”Maladoma Some, PhD


My work is a synthesis of over 30 years of training in the fields of integrative health, leadership and communications. Listening to Connect (C-IQ) is a way of energetically  allowing our brain to activate neural pathways which support us in being more fully present or mindful in our conversations. By weaving in ancient shamanic practices we learn to practice a way of living in an expanded state of awareness that connects us with everything, allowing a remembrance of deep inner knowing.

I begin with the foundation that you are naturally creative, resourceful and whole. Going beyond talk therapy, right to the core of negative beliefs and patterns through readings and coaching sessions I weave together tools from diverse trainings to guide you into taking action to get from where you are now, to where you want to be.

A READING WITH SACRED SYMBOLS is the ancient art of divining objects on your behalf to address questions or concerns you would like to gain more clarity about at this time in your life.

COACHING SESSIONS are customized in blocks of time and can be in-person, by phone or Skype. The foundation is based on C-IQ, which was created from decades of research in neuroscience.

A SHAMANIC ENERGY MEDICINE SESSION is a powerful way to restructure a positive shift of energy that stems from shock, trauma or deeply held patterns and beliefs.

Today we are facing some of the most challenging times in our lives on a global scale. Life changing events are not only happening around us but within us. As our perspective of the world changes, questions arise about the reality of who we truly are, what our life’s purpose is or what it is that deeply brings joy to our heart. I utilize rituals and tools that architect new structures which can act as guideposts during these transitions. You will immediately feel physical and emotional strength, inspiration, confidence and clarity! 

Nature speaks all languages and has the capacity to make sense of what appears to be chaotic while connecting us with the past, present and future.  This allows us to see from the inside out activating our light from within. Brain research is revealing that grounding ourselves in nature, creative activities, yoga, meditation/mindfulness and consciously created environments activate positive effects on the chemistry of our brain, how we feel and function. The ancients and wisdom keepers have known this forever!

Are you seeking to align your lifestyle with your deepest values? Or yearning to embody the expression of your passions and purpose? I can assist you in navigating spiritual crisis and challenging life transitions with integrative healing practices that tap into your own intuitive wisdom and support a renewed sense of deep inner leadership. Together we build trust which is the foundation of your mind/body connection.

If we look at these changing times as a doorway that has opened for us to step forward into new possibilities and shed our old skins, we create from a place of renewed power and awareness.  This allows us to take powerful steps toward transformation, in our personal lives, in our communities and in the world. Trusting that we are on the right path during these transitions, acceptance of what is and who we are in the present moment, is key to knowing right action for loving and supporting ourselves and others.

I look forward to the opportunity of co-creating with you and exploring new possibilities for making powerful new choices in your life.  Aho!  Blessings, Desiree
