In November 2013, I suffered severe sudden hearing loss in my left ear. I had no pain, only loud ringing in the ear. Following a specialist's treatment plan--a steroid that may or may not have any effect, I was told--I felt the need to seek out a qualified Reiki healer as well. A first-time user of Thumbtack, I quickly found some professionals that I thought could help. I sent messages and received prompt responses. After careful consideration and a phone conversation, I chose Jeanette Chardon. The words "16 years experience in working with people who have serious or chronic illness--conditions often considered unsolvable" stood out because that's exactly what I was dealing with: a medical mystery. At our first session, Jeanette asked questions and listened to me, then got right to work. I relaxed body and mind. She started with a sage smudge and conducted a series of what I'd describe as universal prayers. I received heartfelt, skilled, intuitively focused Reiki. She played various noise-making instruments and an iPod recording. She made vocal intonations. She even sang at times (Jeanette has an amazing voice). All of Jeanette's creative methods of treatment were felt deeply on mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual levels. From the get-go, Jeanette gave me to understand the importance and vitality of positive thinking. She communicated this in ways that had me smiling and laughing out loud at times. No more researching on the Internet about the disease! I was to focus on taking care of myself and making whatever little "shifts" I could in my ways of thinking. The homework she gave promoted meditative awareness, deep-breathing relaxation, positive affirmations and daily exercise, whatever I could manage. The first session was two hours; subsequent sessions were one hour in length. I soon experienced a breakthrough and my hearing began improving. I continued doing whatever I could to take care of myself. Both the audiologist and the Ear Nose Throat doctor were astounded by my recovery after two months, citing that most who suffer what I did only recover partial hearing, if any at all. The ENT used the word "miracle." Without a doubt, I know that Jeanette helped me heal during this very difficult time. I will continue working on myself as a client of Jeanette Chardon. She is Outstanding!
Very excited to be working with Scott. We are going to him for a kind of non-religious based premartial counseling. Very happy with his approach!
Reverend Kenton is an angel. Last winter my father passed away and we decided to have a small family service to celebrate his life. My wife had spent time with Kenton in his role as a volunteer with a local non-profit organization and suggested we contact him and ask if he would act as our spiritual leader during my father's memorial and celebration. Without hesitation he agreed. There were about 20 of us there and I can say that to a person, we were touched, moved and thankful for all Kenton did for us. He offered guidance, direction, compassion, leadership, and a caring spirit. We are blessed to have him in our lives. Clint
Heather is compassionate and generous of spirit. They practice deep listening. I've experienced Heather's skill at facilitating 1:1 spiritual direction as well as group meditation and a spiritual support group. Heather is powerful, kind and devoted to spiritual practice and a lifestyle of service. Their background in social work centered on connecting with and providing homeless youth with crucial resources and compassionate aid speaks to their passion and drive to meet people exactly where they are and walk beside them, offering specifically what is needed. As a spiritual director, Heather has a similar approach and a lot of tools to share along with genuine support.
We were so pleased with mike's participation in our wedding. Mike made it so personal, and even though we knew him socially he went the extra mile. Mike will truly make any experience personal and spiritual.
Mike offered his coaching when I was going through a very challenging time in my life. Divorce. My life was entering new territory, I was a mess, and relations with my kids were not easy. Mike offered advice and thoughts that hit at many levels. From what good growth could come out of the mire to practical advice for being available to my kids. Mike did not sugar-coat things. He has a depth of experience and core of compassion that combine to make him an exceptional life or spiritual coach.

People may bring the same questions to a therapist or to a spiritual director. It's the way I engage with those questions that is different. I offer a deep listening presence to the challenges and celebrations in your life. In addition to dialogue, meditation and prayer, we may look at the wisdom of your dreams and your Enneagram lens in our work together. How is your body communicating with you? I'm also available by phone or Skype.

I offer guidance in God's word. If you want to learn about what God says in his letters to us about food laws, marriage, the coming of the Antichrist, or how-to, you tell me what you want to know and learn. I offer one-on-one or group guidance.

As a Voice Dialogue teacher, I apply a multidisciplinary approach, integrating creative arts, contemplative practices, archetypal studies, dream process and movement practice in my trainings and private practice. I have also written extensively, including my book, An Introduction to Voice Dialogue: Finding the Benefit of People Who Bug You, and numerous published articles.
There are so many counselors, healers, therapists, lifestyle gurus and professional advice-givers out there that it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the choices. As a mother of three, I've spent who knows how much time and money looking for effective support for my family's health, only to find superficial, time consuming programs that may produce short-lived results (that require constant re-upping to maintain any effectiveness), but never really get to the heart of what we need. Nothing I've tried has come close to the kind of immediate, deep affect that working with Krista has provided. Her methods are so gentle and intuitive that it's hard to believe the powerful results. Within a week of our first hour-long session, my energy and sense of well-being were raised dramatically. I felt clearer and more confident in my body's ability to heal and was amazed when the results started reaching beyond the original issue for which I had sought her out. Five years later, I don't hesitate to turn to Krista first for all of my and my family's health questions, from nutrition to mental/emotional and relationship dilemmas. Her compassionate manner and truly holistic approach have given me the support I've needed to overcome blocks and reach my goals, without the confusing and often guilt-inducing yo-yo effect I've experienced with other practitioners. She understands that our lives aren't cookie-cutter and our issues aren't compartmentalized, and so is able to invest in the whole client and get to the actual root of a problem, instead of just temporarily easing the symptoms. If you've tried all the healthy living fads, diet programs, all the different therapies, alternative and conventional, and are still feeling stuck, please set up an appointment with Krista, and get ready for a breakthrough!
Sarah is a very insightful and caring counselor. She helped me to understand my self-worth, to communicate more effectively with loved ones and to look at situations with a different perspective. In short, she has helped me transform my life.
Many things have changed during my time spent working with Dana. The biggest being greater self love and acceptance. I always thought I had a fair amount of self respect, but when working with Dana I was really able to see all the negative/limiting beliefs I kept placing on myself. Dana's approach has been much different then when I've worked with counselors in the past. She asked me what was and wasn't effective in past counseling sessions. This allowed me to feel comfortable in expressing my needs. I was hoping to work with someone who was engaging, and gave honest feedback during our talks. Dana did just that, and it made SUCH a difference in our time together. She's mastered how to be both personable and professional with her clients. After a few months of working with Dana, I started to experience some major shifts. Subconsciously I think I walked in her doors just hoping for a slim body and a less chaotic life. But after a few months of sessions with her I got something even better: self love and acceptance. She helped me listen to my inner needs that have been screaming to get my attention for a while now and helped me to process them. Instead of simply losing weight, I learned how to honor and listen to my needs.. And it's been wonderful. I can't recommend Dana enough.
Freedom is one of the most beautiful and spiritual people you will ever meet. She shines brightly and you can't help feeling lighter and more at peace when you are around her. Share the joy of who she is and be a part of what she does. You won't regret it!!
I have worked with Ali many times. The reason I keep going back to her over and over again is that she helps me to organize and make sense of all the different feelings and thoughts that I'm having. Sometimes I will have a tsunami of thoughts/emotions running through me and she slows me (and them) down enough so I can actually get clarity through the onslaught. She uses various NLP techniques which have been extremely powerful in helping me to shift my perspective. Ali's strong intuitive ability, grounding spirituality, wisdom, and love for others give her a unique way of coaching that I find extremely refreshing.
I started seeing David at a time in my life where I was feeling exhaustingly overwhelmed. Although I was hesitant to share my story, I was met with a relaxing, non-judgmental and accepting energy. David not only provided me with knowledge and tools to use to navigate through life, but he also provided a safe space and an altruistic counselor/client relationship. I feel heard, respected and comfortable and much more confident in my ability to provide myself with a great quality of life.
