FAQ

  • Do you offer private instruction or teaching?
    Yes. If you have an idea or would like one on one instruction, or to create your own small group, in something you believe we are a good fit for, contact me with your ideas. Everything I offer on my website in services, art and writing, I have decades of experience and training in, and I am happy to share with you if it feels like now is the time. You can always reach me by email or phone if you have questions. I look forward to your ideas!
  • Are video or phone sessions as good as in person meetings?
    For me, I have been working with people remotely and in person for decades and feel no quality of service differences. We are very present with each other either way. In fact, I often find many people are more relaxed, at ease in their own environments and relieved to not have to rush out for one more thing. They are happy afterwards to be in their own space to peacefully reflect on our meeting. Our work is the stuff of air. We are in our minds, our hearts, our thoughts and experiences. As long as we get in synch, which is more of our nature and abilities than the format, we are good to go. Some people prefer phone because it gives some of their senses a rest from the intensity of screens and they feel they can recline or close their eyes and focus better. Others prefer the visual contact that video meetings create. The big thing is that you are free from interruptions and distractions and that on the other end, we allow ourselves a time for transitions. We can often forget to provide time to shift gears when we are not going to a place and everything seems to roll one thing into the next. This fools the mind into being in a subtle anxiety state of go go go, and dumping some information quickly to make room for more because there's a bit of a hurry going on. If we allow time between our activities, our system perceives no hurry, therefore, no threats. We take the brain break our system needs to digest our experience. Does that make sense? Any questions? Let's talk about it!
  • What is the difference between a Spiritual Director/Companion, Counselor, Coach?
    Director/Companion: This is a very supportive and reflective dynamic. There are no true goals, it is not therapeutic. This is a discovery space, a reclamation place, a restoration time - whatever the seeker is needing to provide a nurturing, expansive and safe environment for exploration in matters of their own spiritual path. The Spiritual Director is skilled at presence and stillness, techniques of inquiry and reflection, and perhaps theology. Sometimes a director/companion is of a particular faith tradition, other times they are not. Some have gone through extensive trainings, and others have not. Key words: Reflection, Rest, Discovery Counseling/Therapy: presence, diagnosis, treatment planning, and evidence-based models of a structured relationship that can also be found in spiritual counseling when the spiritual counselor is credentialed and trained well. Spiritual Counseling as a term has unfortunately been stretched to fit degree programs, non-degree programs, seminary programs, faith-based programs, and pop up unknown "certificate" programs that may be money grabs. Please know what you are participating in. Key Words: Healing, Treatment, Modalities Coaching: identifying, creating and guiding toward mapped goals. Coaches may be certified, have certificates (which is not the same as being certified), or neither and be self-proclaimed. They may be for performance, life matters, spiritual matters, creativity, and so on. Key Words: Identifying, Mapping, Goals All three of these may sound similar on the surface, but actually provide very different services. The line is not actually grey between them. Please consider where you are, what you are feeling or sensing a need for, and be clear who is the right fit for you. Ask questions if you are unsure. Ask questions about training and background without worrying if you will offend the practitioner. Also, trust yourself within the relationship you enter into, to lean into what feels like a right relationship with your inner self. Any questions? Get in touch. We can talk more about it. I offer all three categories of services and care, as Spiritual Director/Companion, a Spiritual Counselor, and Peace Coach all based off decades of experience and academic accomplishments. Questions? Ask. I'm here. Contact Birdi
  • What is the difference between Spiritual Counseling and Conventional Counseling? Are all welcome?
    The difference resides in a wholistic approach where matters of spirituality lead as an integral part of our being. This does not mean specifically religion or that the counselor has a religious agenda, although it may. It is important to clarify before beginning a counseling relationship with someone. This often means our morality, our essence, or as buddhism discusses, our "essential self" and investigating our root religions, can be paths of approaching our well-being and healing. At times, people combine conventional and spiritual counseling, finding they are complementary. The approach of spiritual counseling is to speak to the identity of who we ARE, who we know ourselves to be, who we feel we came here to be, and how that may be in harmony or disruption with our lives, our perceptions, our relationships, our actions, our pasts, our circumstances, our beingness. As in Interfaith Minister, with my Doctorate in sacred dialogue, engagement and activism, my practices grounded in Wholeness, several certificates in spiritual and creative practices, and a couple of Masters in therapeutic and spiritual studies, and my undergrad career in hospice, I have a wide breath of compassionate and clear knowledge of spiritual and cultural nuance. I am involved with advancing the awareness and rights of LGBTQA+ community. All are welcome, come as you are. Let's connect.
  • What is a Spiritual Director? Is this the same as a Spiritual Companion?
    Spiritual Directors (Spiritual Companions): do not form answers, diagnosis, create treatment plans or work with evidence-based methods. We are walking with you a while as you explore and deepen your spiritual relationship and intimate understandings of your own spirituality and refine your practice at this time in life. A Spiritual Director can have a variety of co-training and skills, varied experience, and techniques or methods, but also requires a measure of counseling background to guide and companion someone during a crisis of spirit, faith, or be well-suited to direct, companion, support a variety of someone else's body of experience, needs, and surprises with care, presence, foresight, sensitivity, creativity, and compassion. Also the spiritual companion/director may have their own practices and belief structures, however, depending on the director and their individual modalities, please be sure to see if they are a match for yours or at least able to set aside theirs to be present for yours without a bias. To me, this is companioning, to be present for you, as you are, where you are, not to impose or bring you to wherever they may be. If you would like to explore Spiritual Direction, contact me directly and let's have a talk about your ideas and needs. Here's a New York Times article about Spiritual Directors that you might find helpful: https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/13/style/self-care/spiritual-directors-faith-religion.html
  • What is Animal or Pet Communication?
    Animal Communication or Pet Communication is helpful with animals companions living or passed to connect with their health, needs, ideas, personalities, preferences, discomforts, fears, relationships, behaviors, circumstances. This is a comforting and guiding way to talk about details I would have no way of knowing, so you know it is coming from them. It brings the relationships closer, clears misunderstandings, heals unresolved grief, aids decisions. I do not help find lost animals, and I'm sorry for this. I also do not discuss the pasts of animals who are adopted as there is often no way to validate this information, nor is it helpful to them for us to stay in their pasts when they are willing and wanting to move forward, with you. These sessions are about love and clarity, in being in the present in an understanding and intimate, detailed way, and can be so bonding. In readings for animals who have passed, they will share relevant conversation with you about what you most need to hear from them. This can be very healing, even funny, warm, and have some surprising care and suggestions about current things going on in your life. They had a front row to everything after all! I often recommend an 1.5 hours for these meetings. Please note when scheduling that you would like an animal communication session. Click here to schedule PS. I also accept commissions for pet portraits of your wonderful sweetheart. Contact me directly
  • What is Medical Intuition?
    Medical intuition can be defined differently depending on who you ask, what you read, your own beliefs. How I work with medical intuition is directly related to specific body systems, direct information about your body health, environments, supports, tests, dietary influences, and so on. This can apply to yourself, your loved ones, and even pets/animal companions. I will not talk about past lives or auras, chakras being in or out of alignment, or angelic realms or use metaphysical-healing language. I will not diagnose or treat. We will talk about recognizable situations, conditions and circumstances in clear details that are relatable and helpful in your specific conditions. This provides guidance, understanding, clarity for you to consider as you make decisions about your care. Want to schedule a medical intuitive session? Click here to schedule a session, and specify you would like Medical Intuition. As always, I am available for questions.
  • What can I expect after a purchase of an original art piece or commission?
    A purchase is like an adoption. I very much care for the pieces I create and so will follow through and support your purchase, your commission plans, and your shipping through until it is received by you. We'll decide all the things together so much as is possible. It is a relationship, as art can be, sharing a story and connection in the world in some kind of way. I become directly accessible to you. Contact me.
  • Do you offer Gift Cards?
    Yes, of course! There is a Gift Card page here for an automated e-card or you can get in touch and we will arrange a custom gift certificate for art, courses, sessions, a commission. Whatever you have in mind, we can design a pdf gift certificate that is personalized for your idea and your occasion. Gift certificates are redeemable for services. classes, courses, art. They are also transferrable to another person if that becomes more useful. Contact me and we can figure out whatever you like if you do not want to purchase through the site.
