Companion In Healing
Cindy brings a heart full of gratitude for over 30 years of partnering
with her follow journeyers in discovering our own wisdom and natural
healing potential. In her private practice in Des Moines, Iowa,
Cindy offers individual, couple, small group, workshop and retreat
experiences that seek to open us to what our life story is teaching
us. Honoring the co-creative partnership, Cindy supports the
accessing of our own inner divinity and wisdom. Cindy seeks to
honor the wholeness of who we are by intention toward and attention to
the body, mind, emotions and spirit. It is Cindy's belief that we
contribute to global change and evolution by consciously entering our
own individual transformative work.
