COUNSELING AND SUPPORT MINISTRY
In the Philadelphia area, Marie works with individuals in spiritual direction and life coaching.
She also facilitates spiritual growth and support groups in the western main line (Valley Forge, Malvern, Phoenixville) and eastern main line (Narberth, Ardmore, Conshohocken) areas. For those at a distance, she sets up appointments on the phone for half-hour or hour sessions.
During individual sessions -- whether in person or on the phone --
and in the support groups she leads, Marie's emphasis is helping
others to discover their soul's leading by paying attention to the
truest desires of their hearts. In that way, their energy is free to
move and contribute its gifts to the world while creating a personally
satisfying and joyous life. She listens deeply, honoring each
person's process and helping him or her to find meaning and context.
As an ordained minister, Marie is also available for interfaith weddings and ceremonies that celebrate other life transitions. In consultation with the people involved, she designs rituals that combine depth with whimsy, expressing their hopes and symbolizing their dreams.
