What would it feel like to live in harmony with your wisest  self? 

The Inner Counselor Process™ is a customized journey in which clients are able to explore the deepest part of their inner landscape in order to gain insights and wisdom that the that busy world often drowns out.

This interactive dialogue allows the quiet voice within us to be seen and heard so that it may accompany us in navigating the trials of life with greater insights and tools. In this way, we become able to create powerful change by integrating both our inner and outer landscapes of the present world. With these newfound insights and dialogue with our ‘Wise Self,’ we are able to create empowered responses to life’s stresses.

We all have our patterns and triggers.

It is easy to become stuck in old coping mechanisms and habits. The inner counselor dialogue lets us witness our own struggle from a different vantage point and see both our history and our future. We can harvest the learning without reliving the past and thereby create meaningful and lasting change in the present and beyond.

Are you ready to create a meaningful shift in your life?

Within one 60-minute session, we can:

  • Reduce dysfunctional coping patterns
  • Help diminish the effects of past trauma
  • Allow you to be your best self.

“You just helped me heal old trauma that would have taken me months to work through. Because of that session we did together, I got to leapfrog to the heart of the matter to let the healing begin. It has been life-altering in such a positive way. Thank you! That was amazing!”

— Jennifer F., Parent of 3, Gunnison, CO


All of us experience patterns in our distress – that sickening feeling of familiarity as we slip into reactive behavior. We can feel like something is pulling us down into a hole, even as we try to stay up on safe ground.  It can manifest in different ways:

  • Overwhelm and confusion – racing thoughts or a feeling of fuzziness and exhaustion
  • Fear – feeling frozen or in flight to avoid dealing with something upsetting
  • Anger – yelling things we later regret saying, irritability, or simmering resentment
  • Anxiety – panicky bodily sensations, endless internal conversations, and niggling worries
  • Numbing activities – eating, drinking, scrolling, watching, or sleeping too much
  • Guilt and shame – feelings of regret, worthlessness, or embarrassment
  • Other unpleasant emotions – a loud inner critic, lethargy, inability to make decisions

These feelings are not the problem. They are symptoms of coping mechanisms based on old patterns, beliefs, and ideas. 

This means that we can do something to be more in harmony with our best self. Through this profound and deeply transformational inner counselor experience, we can release ourselves from those old beliefs and patterns that no longer serve us.

“That Inner Counselor Process™ has transformed my life. It helps me say, “This is who I am.” It allows me to know myself. Instead of spiraling when I hear negative things, I now consciously go back to that place we discovered, regain my self-worth, and move beyond, aware of my own power.”

— Karen C.B., Mother of 3 teens in Newton MA


I offer Inner Counselor Sessions to individuals seeking new approaches to difficult patterns in their lives. These sessions are wonderful for learning how to connect with your own Inner Wisdom for long lasting comfort and guidance.

Variations of the Inner Counselor Process are part of my Parent Coaching work. This process serves parents best when they need a way to shift approaches and feel more aligned with their best selves. 


“Inner counselor meditation has been one of the most important aspects of my work with Amy. Using this process has helped me to look inward to both identify and address the things that I struggle with personally that were holding me back from parenting in the joyful, simple and effective way that I wanted. Though the first meditation was the most transformative for me, we have used the process a number of times throughout our work together and each time it has helped me to address and move beyond boundaries to my happiness.”

— Amanda K., Newton MA, mom of a 9 year old boy

Here are the practical details:

  • These Zoom sessions generally last one hour. Once a client is familiar with the process, I can weave shorter versions into my coaching sessions to offer powerful tools in a matter of minutes.
  • Through the Inner Counselor Process, you will connect with a vision of a peaceful place and access your Inner Wisdom. I guide you in a gently interactive way to explore the feelings, needs, and possibilities that are part of whatever challenge or pattern you are experiencing.
  • We talk throughout the experience, giving you the freedom to lean in or out of anything that comes up for you. You will be amazed at how your self-compassion and clarity grow through this experience.
  • Often a single session is so powerful that you will use the insights for a lifetime. My clients frequently return to the images received in their Inner Counselor experiences. Many clients enjoy additional sessions to navigate new challenges as they arise.

I’ve helped many people access their Inner Wisdom and creativity through this process so that they are able to face new situations in refreshingly powerful ways. Everyone reports feeling greater freedom, energy, and peace.

Relationships improve, confidence rises, and joy increases as you align with your inner wisdom.

“After several years of struggling with a dysfunctional and painful communication dynamic with my mom, I realized that I had to make some major changes on my end so as not to exacerbate the situation and to not be triggered or hurt at every turn. The Inner Counselor meditation guided me to develop cognitive tools and strategies that have served to strengthen my resilience and compassion in a way that reduced the emotional charge of the conversations and my susceptibility to emotional triggers.

I developed the ability to call on these new practices and tools in the midst of these conversations and found in them the mental anchor I needed to stabilize myself. The practice has also helped me to be less “reactive” and grounded when the conversations became more emotionally charged.” 

Clara Bergen, Mom of two teens in New Jersey
