Barb’s passion is to assist those seeking inner peace and spiritual growth. She combines the ancient medicine of essential oils with the patterns of the archetypes as a ‘compass’ for daily living. Barb supports client’s inner life growth by creating unique, personalized essential oil blends. Her hope is for clients to participate in expanding their inner life by making healthy choices. Barb’s goal is to partner with people as they choose to live their personal destiny– where inner and outer lives match and thrive.
Essential oil therapy can be a method for self-nurturing when used with more traditional health care treatments. Barb assists mothers during pregnancy, birth, and postpartum and helps those in palliative and hospice care and those living with chronic pain. Overall health can be improved by identifying past behaviors which may have caused imbalances or obstacles to contentment. Barb uses the Caroline Myss model of Sacred Contracts to reveal belief patterns in clients who seek to live a life of inner peace no matter what happens in their outer life.
Essential oils can create a soothing experience as the person makes new patterns of choice for enhancing their inner lives of peace and rest no matter what is happening in their outer world relationships and situations. Barb is available for consultations, personal appointments, and group education. She educates and offers essential oils and/or archetypal consulting for anyone seeking self empowerment.
