Working Principles - Ethics
The goal of my work is leading clients to joy, balance, and empowerment. The following principles guide my work.
How we work together
When we work together in the Fireside Lodge, we are partners: Together, we explore the best course of action for you. The final decision about how to proceed will always be yours.
The healing, coaching and ceremonial work described on this website will support you on your path to reconnect with your essence, strengthen your Self, and bring your gifts to the world. This journey can bring intense experiences and new ways of thinking about 'reality'. Some personal issues and challenges may come up that have to be acknowledged, reconciled and integrated before positive change can occur. This may take some time and patience, but at the end, it will enable you to fully engage with life. The work in the Fireside Lodge will always be safe - you will be treated with care and respect.
Working in shamanic ways or receiving Reiki does not replace seeing a doctor and using the gifts of Western medicine. These systems can work in a complementary way. For example, if you are undergoing cancer treatment in a hospital, shamanic sessions and/or Reiki can strengthen your mind, body and spirit so that you can make the best of the treatment. The shamanic/Reiki work will also stimulate your self-healing ability.
