Conscious Couples Counseling

Conscious Couples Counseling

Rain has been working with couples for many years traversing the realms of sexuality, new relationships, parenting, discernment, open relationships, communication, major life decisions, and more! Level 3 trained in the Gottman Method, techniques are dyadic and evidence based. Prior research in orgasm, sensuality, pleasure, and the nature of relationships also gives Rain an approach that is both soft and encouraging while being deliberate and engaging. Greatly influenced by spiritual counseling and psychophysiology, the presence in the room allows for the couple to do the necessary work that will make a lasting and positive difference over time.

Emotional Integrative Bodywork

Emotional Integrative Bodywork

A blend of various massage approaches with an integration of counseling and meditation instruction or spirituality exploration as indicated by the client’s need. The massage techniques used are swedish, shiatsu, reflexology, and polarity (a form of energy work). EIB sessions are multi-modal by design. Honoring the body, mind, emotions, and spirit, healing is facilitated on many levels. Because of this, transformation is more easily maintained as a body of work is completed. EIB leaves clients feeling more awake, aware, alive, and connected with what is truly important in one’s life. Trauma resolution, embodiment, and major life decisions are all examples of experiences addressed through this comprehensive modality.

Family Coaching

Family Coaching

Whatever is in your heart about being a parent or caregiver will be listened to, honored, and deeply considered. A simple, clear, and thoughtful approach to parenting and the self care needed to do so well is shared through sessions in person, by phone, or online. Practical tools and suggestions are given to try in your own way and own time, with the follow through necessary to discover what works best for you and your loved ones. Conception, postpartum, family decision making, nursing / weaning, school searches, sibling relations, aggression, multi-generational family relationships, anxiety, depression, anger, boundaries, emotions, eating styles, daily routines, rituals and celebrations, sleep, attunement, intimacy, sexuality, death / dying, and loss are all examples of parenting issues successfully addressed. Many theorists have influenced this work, including Patty Wipfler’s Parenting by Connection approach of nourishing the sacred space that is family.
