From Monika:

Grief Counseling for Traumatic Loss

If you have lost a loved one of any age, from any cause, I deeply care. I am here to help share the pain and to walk with you along the path of grief. Depending on your needs and your beliefs, we will hold formal grief counseling paired with contemplative and psychological practices as well as rituals to remember your loved one.

Women’s Empowerment Along the Path of Life

Social structures and cultural expectations have distorted and obstructed women’s passages throughout their life cycle. We need to recognize and deconstruct these internalized influences that block our life energies. We do this together with personal dialogue, group processes, contemplative and psychological practices, rituals, dance, and journeys into the natural world.
