My psychotherapy is based in Transpersonal Psychology, which assumes we are more than a personality, that when our Soul & Spirit are involved in the healing process, it is more complete. Shamanic Psychology acknowledges the altered state or non-ordinary reality as a vehicle to experience a conscious journey into other aspects of our being in order to let go of that which we no longer need & to bring back parts of our soul.
I use Shamanic Astrology as a valid personality theory, to illuminate the archetypes of the personality, the soul’s lineage, the gifts, challenges & resources.
The Enneagram is a rich personality typing system that gives clues to how we can heal our personality, so that it can be a vehicle for the soul.
Flower Essences are homeopathics for the emotions and wonderful natural alternatives to psychiatric drugs. I call the clearing work I do “Unwinding Trauma.” It is a combination of EMDR (a right-left brain technique), essences, guided imagery & NLP along with the breath. It is very effective in resolving old wounds and clearing out negative self-images. My Couples Counseling is based on Harville Hendrix’s Imago Couples Therapy.

In addition to facilitating emotional healing, Shamanic BreathworkTM increases life force energy, activates kundalini, clears emotional trauma, and creates an ecstatic relationship with the body and the chakras. I also offer ongoing breathwork workshops and individual sessions.
The Shamanic Priestess Process is an empowerment process for awakening the shamanic priestess within, and aligning each woman with the sacred mysteries of LIFE FORCE ENERGY. In these times of the end of Patriarchy and the beginning of a time of Sacred Union between Feminine and Masculine, Earth and Heaven, Dark and Light, women are called upon to usher in this new era which will inevitably be a time of great challenge, uncertainty and chaos. The priestess archetype holds the vision of a New Earth. When women have fully individuated from the old patriarchal consciousness, and are not longer running unhealthy “driven” masculine energy, they are able to re-claim their own personal and spiritual authority and fully step in to the empowered Divine Feminine. The New Story of the feminine is the Solar Feminine, the radiant one who steps into the Light and into powerful leadership in her life.
Shamanic Astrology, the work of Daniel Giamario,is a deeply psychological and archetypal astrological system that can be used to maximize life-force energy by aligning us with the archetypal energies we intended to manifest in this lifetime. We can also use the Great Planetary Cycles of Change as vehicles of initiation rather than times of suffering. I offer shamanic astrology in my private practice & readings by phone.
