Hi I'm Illana Berger
I’d like to tell you a bit about myself.
A teacher wrote: “Every act of love is a deep unknowing, a plunge into life that we’re aware, even as we do it, will contain sorrow, may end in grief, but has its own necessity.” This is the risk we take each time we consider and then agree to enter into a love relationship with another. It is an act of bravery and courage to marry and an equal act of bravery and courage to divorce.
I have done both.
I understand and have great empathy for anyone and everyone who dares to love. I know intimately the fear you feel when your beloved informs you that they are no longer in love with you. I also know what it is like to be at the end of your rope with the arguments, the disagreements and the hurts, yet feel the pull, the imperative to get help and see if your marriage or relationship can be saved. I have done both.
I will assist you in expanding your personal awareness and consciousness and how to use that awareness to cultivate compassion and kindness with your partner. As a spiritual coach and counselor I support you in discovering how your mind works, how your body communicates with you and what your soul is most longing for. Together we explore how the tapestry of your life and the stories your carry influence your assumptions, your choices and your values.
I have had the great privilege to work with elders, healers and wisdom keepers from all over the world. These wonderful teachers and their teachings have deeply informed me and the work I offer to you.
My core philosophy is that healing and wholeness begins first with yourself, then extends to your family and finally within the larger communities that surround you.
