Supported Transformation

Are you feeling confused about the bigger picture of your life, or stuck in a pattern of thinking, feeling, and reacting?

As human beings—we all experience these uncomfortable nudges—  nudges from our Inner Wisdom that hint at what is possible beyond our current experience of being.

These nudges are an invitation to awaken to the power and peace within yourself. They are an invitation to explore the depth of you and awaken to what is truly possible in your whole being: body, mind, and spirit. This is an invitation to awaken to the life your heart desires.

Each person’s vision is unique—yet each vision shares a common element: the desire to thrive in a way that awakens the potential within. This desire is to awaken from old emotional patterns and habitual ways of responding to our life circumstances and relationships.

Awakening is a journey. It’s a process, and it involves an evolution: a transformation in how you understand, see and relate to yourself. Like any journey, the journey of awakening is one that is most successful when done in a relationship.

Going it alone is hard. You trip over your blind spots, get caught in old patterns, and get overwhelmed easily.

This frustration is unnecessary and only slows you down, keeping you stuck.

This is where working with a guide or mentor can be of great service to your growth and healing.

Working with Patty, you will gain clarity in your vision and gain a deeper understanding of your story. You will learn skills and strategies grounded in psychology and the ancient wisdom traditions of yoga and Ayurveda to support you on your path.

No Judgment. No labels or diagnosis. Just support, guidance, and deep listening.

Patty offers individual mentoring services to support you on your journey of self-discovery and evolution.


Individual Sessions:

Individual mentoring may be right for you if you’re looking to weave together the greater narrative of your life story and link your experiences with your emotional life. These sessions invite you to come as you are: with your messiness and your wholeness. You'll enter a safe and sacred space that is held just for you as you are guided through an exploration of your relationship with your Self, your emotions, and the richness of your inner life.

Transformational mentoring is the work of creating new neural pathways (neuroplasticity)—new ways of being and showing up for your life. There is no right or wrong. There is integration and healing. I’m here to help you compassionately craft the narrative of your life story as a celebration of you--and who are becoming.

**Sessions are conducted via Zoom.

Anyone ready to commit to changing for the better!

Nothing runs too deep in your life to be beyond change. It could be fatigue, limiting habits, or challenging circumstances. In transformational mentoring, we explore the process of becoming. We dive deep below the thinking mind's surface and reveal a space where you can weave together elements of your story to create a coherent and integrated understanding of you: to create significant shifts in your inner life and external experiences.

Transformational mentoring is a good fit for you if you:

  • Find yourself asking the big questions in life like, Who am I? Why am I here? What is the meaning and purpose of my life?
  • Are feeling inner distress that is confusing and is often joined by a sense that something old needs to fall away to create space for something new to emerge in your life.
  • Sense that you need help reaching your deeper goals, offering you a greater experience of fulfillment.
  • ​ Have a sense that you need a deeper level of change to live a life that feels vital, connected, and meaningful.
  • ​ Believe that the answers are inside you and can be accessed to provide direction in life with the right guidance.
  • ​ Are drawn to an approach that integrates an understanding and curiosity of your psychology and spirituality with a willingness to explore your spirit's deeper needs.
