Spiritual Counseling and Energy Work

"The support and unconditional love Staci provides has given me a space to grow into my life. The lessons of the eight teachers from her book and learning to, "lean in, follow the energy, trust myself and grow a relationship with the unknown" has empowered me to heal from life-threatening illness, recover from PTSD, find the love of my life, and take the steps towards my true life calling." Jade L.

People often say I’m a direct woman, so let’s start by getting to the point.

You’re not just a potential client to me. My earth-based healing work isn’t separate from my life as a mother or friend. My healing work is part of my soul’s purpose. It’s sacred to me. And so allowing me into your life is a gift and responsibility, a sacred trust. You’re not a potential client, you’re a potential beloved.

For example, a beloved attended a women’s group I facilitated monthly for two years. She went away to graduate school and we periodically emailed.

A couple years later she walked through my door literally in tears and straight into my arms. She was about to check herself into a mental hospital for acute anxiety. Instead, she saw me weekly for nine months.

After that, she moved across the country, got a good job, and we continued with Skype sessions during the transition. When she felt ready, we said farewell.

Six months later, she texted me at 7:30pm on a Tuesday. She was embarrassed because it had been awhile, but she was having a hard time. I called her immediately and we spoke for an hour. We saw each other over Skype until she felt balanced again. Today, she seems to be doing well. I celebrate her moving on. And if she contacted me tomorrow, I’d be there in a heartbeat.

My healing work isn’t confined to a 50-minute hour or three month coaching package. If you’re really in it, I’m going to answer your text, call or email. Period. If I dream about you or feel a strong urge to connect, I may even initiate contact. I can do that and maintain boundaries about normal business hours as much as possible.

You’re not a potential client, you’re a potential beloved.

“With Staci I’ve begun a journey into my own truth – one I’ve been afraid to take for this entire lifetime. But it feels as though she holds my hand and grants a space where I can come to trust my own instincts, intuition, and wisdom. When I’m overwhelmed I can rely on the tools I’ve found instead of various addictions. This is the most worthwhile work I’ve ever done.” Diana C.

I am a mama-bear spiritual-midwife life-guide earth-based energy teacher

I’m an earth-based healing practitioner, energy teacher, author, and guide for consciously navigating life. I’m also a shamanic witchy mediumistic fiercely-loving mama-bear. If you’re looking for talk therapy or a traditional life coach, if you aren’t open to energy work or some experiential woo-woo, I’m not your person.

My healing work doesn’t fit into a box. Whether it’s through personal process, guided imagery, hands-on healing, dance ceremony or breathwork, I teach people how to let go and follow energy so they can navigate life with more grace and power.

My commitment is to travel through life with you, no matter what. To move through life’s ups and downs without falling over, we need to call in some serious support.

For me, support comes as a sacred relationship with the unseen world. East, south, west, north, below, above and within. God. Archetypal energy. Spirit guides. Shakti. Chakras. Shiva. Jupiter. The Moon. Ganesh. Inanna. Goddess. The elements. Spirit.

You don’t have to believe in any of the above to work with me. Respect, yes. Believe, no. And this goes both ways.

As long as you’re not hurting anyone, I’m open to whatever you find sacred or meaningful–your dog, yoga practice, best friend, music, stillness, dancing, breathing, or picking your nose-hair.

I have no agenda about what your healing looks like. My job is to follow your potential healing with every fiber of my being without attachment.

Within that, I can’t promise to wave a magic wand and cure your life. As much as I will show up, as much as I care and believe in you, especially when you don’t believe in yourself, your power stems from becoming your own magic wand.

“Recently I was struck by the (rather frightening) realization that, without Staci, I may have lived the rest of my life having never experienced the profound insight, awareness and healing this deep sacred work offers. Staci is the real deal. Where other practices I’ve tried have been mere saccharine, her teaching is sweet honey, straight from the bee. She is a spiritual midwife, holding you in her arms as you are delivered from the pain of the past. I will give you this warning: Do not step into this process with Staci unless you are truly prepared to awaken that which has been sleeping, deep inside of you, for far too long.” Jenny B.

I’ll walk through fire with you

After over 15 years, I’ve navigated many infernos with beloved clients.

I’ve traveled through relationships ending, panic attacks, abortion, transitioning careers, moving, parental struggles, cancer, meeting new loves—and this is with just ONE beloved. I’ve also focused exclusively on one area of life with people–anxiety, relationships, developing trust–for years.

People often find me:

  • Feeling stuck or frozen on the threshold of change
  • Longing to let go and surrender (a relationship, life pattern, trauma)
  • Reeling from an unexpected shattering life circumstance
  • Looking for more than talk therapy
  • Needing to schedule self-care (or it doesn’t happen)
  • Struggling inside specific relationship, anxiety, grief, and/or health issues

What do I need from you?

I need you to show up. I need you to receive me. I need you to give yourself time to grow some sea legs by attending regular sessions. I also need room to get to know you so that I can follow you, travel with you, deeply and well.

Healing takes time, and it’s a worthwhile investment. Developing your capacity from the inside out will change your life in magical ways.

And if the shit hits the fan, which it does at least a few times in life, you’ll have some serious navigating power to call upon. Plus you’ll have me, if you want.

That’s what I can offer you–my fierce heart, every tool I’ve gathered, all of my sacred relationships, with a deep commitment of presence and love.

Why energy work?

Talking is an important first step for activating healing. And I’ve found that at some point we need to move underneath whatever bullshit stories, beliefs, trauma, and lineage that’s been running your life and work the energy.

The energy inside your body. The energy that gets expressed through your relationship with work, friends, lovers, finances, beliefs, health, and decision-making. Energy communicates within and throughout every aspect of your life.

Diving underneath to experience energy develops your capacity to hold expansion when it arrives. Otherwise, it will fade away, leaving you confused and stuck, again.

And so, in addition to having meaningful discussions about your life, individual sessions with me include subtle body energy work such as guided imagery and hands-on healing.

Practicing following energy during an individual session is what will teach you how to navigate daily life with more wholeness and power.

“I’m in Michigan, so Staci and I work via Skype…but she may as well be sitting right next to me. She is so in tune with what I experience during our sessions together. If I am visualizing sitting by the sea, she will, in that exact moment, mention the sea. If an animal friend or spirit guide shows up for me, Staci knows it immediately. She can detect the precise sensations in my body and intuit how to work that energy. It’s truly uncanny. I may never understand how she does this, but I’m just so grateful for her and this deep, powerful work.” Liz J.

How individual sessions work

Individual sessions last 60 or 90 minutes in person, via phone or on Skype. We start with you checking-in, often focusing on a challenging area of your life.

I follow your pace, creating a loving atmosphere where you’re free to cry, be angry and laugh hard. I’m always listening for ways you can discover your power and I call upon all my experience to get behind your healing.

About halfway through the session, we move inward so you can practice connecting with your own subtle energy, feelings and body sensations.

After deciding if you want to focus on making friends with your body or visioning about a life issue, you lie down fully clothed, get comfortable and close your eyes. We practice grounding together and I call in a circle of support.

I close my eyes and see myself traveling with you, offering questions, guidance and hands-on energy work.

I encourage you to follow your process and your vision. Often your unique imagery comes alive to offer specific insight. These sounds, images, colors and textures become important clues for developing core healing.

We practice getting real by going wherever you need to reclaim yourself. We may even get a little wild. You’re free to laugh, cry, shake, cough or be blissfully still. I may sometimes burp to clear energy or even croon nonsensically in a loving mama-bear voice.

I realize the idea of letting go like this can feel foreign, maybe even a bit scary. This is how you learn how to let go and follow energy, by starting with yourself. And I’m with you all the way.

“Staci holds sacred space better that anyone I have ever experienced.” Velma G.

By going inside, you’ll discover:

You can go there and remember a sense of humor. You can go there and negotiate relationship. You can go there while remembering your power.

You don’t have to open the door to the mystery and just lay down and take it. You can go in standing, scared but willing. You can go in slow. You can go in gentle. You can go in strong. You can even go in playful.

But you need to go in and through the mystery to gather some things, especially some of your own missing parts.

Because honey, on the other side of fear what’s really waiting for you inside the mystery is unconditional love. Beauty. Magic. Creativity. Trust. Your own truth. Intuition. Inner power.

Afterwards, we compare notes so you can ground and integrate your experience. We notice the clues and connect your inner work with everyday issues, especially those you’ve raised in our session.

Over time, following your healing energy transforms clues into specific practices and tools. Energy work becomes a creative practice where you’re free to inhabit yourself fully, with joy, strength, trust or whatever you most need to feel more whole and powerful.

Along the way, you become your own most precious resource, able to navigate life with a sense of choice, no matter what.
