Her spiritual and heart centered work is unique and gentle and she is able to draw upon many modalities to support her clients. She specializes in sand tray therapy, a healing tool inspired by Carl Jung. Most recently, Jill is excited to share The Work of Byron Katie, a way of questioning the thoughts that bring us stress. As we identify and neutralize these thoughts, we move into ever clearer states where we are open and curious, where we become the love that we are. Jill has recently attended and helped staff The School of The Work and has participated in the NoBody Intensive, all with Byron Katie. Jill is offering sessions with The Work in person or on the phone. Sessions last an average of 45 minutes. The only preparation needed is to fill out a worksheet naming the stressful thoughts.
Jill began her therapeutic work at the Findhorn Foundation where she was an international facilitator of The Game of Transformation. The Game is a powerful experience that harnesses the powers of intention, of the group, and of the spiritual world to to enlighten and transform. It can be ‘played’ individually, with a small group of five or with groups of 100-200. Jill worked at a Waldorf School where she witnessed daily the way anthroposophy can be used in a practical way to support children and their development. Jill received her Masters in Counseling Psychology at Antioch University in Keene, NH. She followed her graduate work with several years of training with Robert and Cheryl Sardello at the School for Spiritual Psychology.
