Gillian Corzine, M.S., Marriage and Family Therapist, AAMFT, NCMFT.

I have been supporting individuals, couples, and families in their paths towards creating richer and more fulfilling lives since 1994. My philosophy is that the individual is influenced by and plays a role in her family, culture, and sociopolitical environment. Growing up the individual acquires her symptoms from this environment. Change is achieved by the individual who finds the key to transforming her environment and perception of her role in that wider system. Virgina Satir and Salvador Minuchin are influences in my perspective towards family systems.

Shamanic Practice--Soul Intent Arts
Soul Intent Arts is an intertribal shamanic practice for Universal wellbeing through Mystery School, workshops, and private sessions. Private sessions help clients restore their power with soul retrieval, extraction, chakra and etheric body clearing, retrieving spirit guides and power animals. Teaching includes dynamic approaches in ecstatic journeying, such as connection with celestial and ancestral allies, life progression/regression and transpersonal chakra work. I often use Reiki, Reconnective Healing, and hypnotherapy to enhance my shamanic soul work.
