What is the role of a Spiritual Mentor?
A Spiritual Mentor is a trusted person who guides another in the process of gaining knowledge, understanding and a deeper recognition of their own true nature. Maureen mentors clients through inevitable life transitions and guides them in personal transformation.
What is the role of a Creative Mentor?
A creative mentor inspires the exploration and reclamation of the creative imagination. This unblocks the hidden potentiality of the inner child, allowing a person's innate artistic nature to flow unencumbered in everyday life.

Because this all ends.
I’ve been going to Maureen for a year now, but I still remember that first session vividly. The intensity of that peacefulness and that everything-is-going-to-be-okay understanding opened a door to a world I had always known existed, but wasn’t quite sure how to access. Maureen has equipped me with tools I use on a daily basis to stay connected to that world. She has helped me understand where my thought patterns come from and how to change them when they need to be changed. She has helped me be a better employee, friend, girlfriend, and daughter.

With healing hands and comforting words, Maureen invokes a sense of calm, love and light throughout. 'Lightness of being' is the phrase that comes to mind when I consider Maureen's work. This sensation inspires not only a sense of wellbeing but also hopein what is and what is yet to come. Additionally, each session is couched in a luxurious, intuitive, multi-sensorial ambience of music, oils, crystals - plus much more - to soothe the modern mind, body and soul. I will continue to experience her work personally and recommend it professionally!

For so much of my life as a doctor. wife, mother and friend I have strived to truly be a healer. But when I needed healing, there was never an easy answer - until I was blessed to find Maureen. After my mom's death and years of searching for answers, Maureen finally gave me the strength not only to believe in myself, but to change my view of the world and our purpose in it. She posses infinite wisdom, grace, abundant love and knows exactly what her clients need to be. I always joke that three hours with her is more inspirational than three months of therapy. Working with her as my spiritual mentor has made me a better person, not just for myself but for everyone in my life.
