Mandala Assessment Research Instrument
(MARI) | $125/ hr.
If you're looking for a different approach to spiritual direction or personal insight, look no further than the MARI. By using mandalas and the MARI symbol and color cards, we are able to take a snapshot of where you are spiritually and emotionally in order to gain insight. You can find further information about what a MARI is HERE and there's a picture of a MARI I did in the Home page slide show.
Please fill out the two forms mentioned HERE and bring them with you to the first session.
First Session: Approximately two hours. I will have you do a mandala and the MARI.
Report Preparation: Approximately two hours. I do this--you're at home relaxing!
Second Session: Approximately 1 hour. I will give you the interpretation report (yours to keep) and go over it with you. We may do another mandala or make changes in the MARI depending on time and need.
Total time: Five hours ($500)

$300/5 hr Zoom package
Congratulations on having the courage to strengthen your relationship!
The Prepare-Enrich (P-E) program is scientifically based and well-respected. It's also a lot of fun! Whether you're dating, engaged, or already married, P-E's online assessment is tailored to where you are in life. Couples take the online assessment and the results are given to me in order to share your strengths and growth areas, giving us a plan of what to work on in our time together. Workbook is included with my facilitator's fees. $300/5 hr Zoom package.
Plan ahead! This process is a five hour commitment on Zoom.
Additional Fees/Materials: The assessment is $35 and paid by the couple online (I provide you with a link after you register and pay).
Also, I suggest that couples purchase (or check out from the library) The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work by John Gottman. It is available for purchase HERE.
What did you like most about the
"I enjoyed the time together to be dedicated to working and talking about our relationship. I enjoyed the genogram class as that was interesting to see the patterns within each of our families. It also prompted additional discussions within my family when we got together."
"Talking with each other in the presence of Danae was very enlightening!"
"I was very pleasantly surprised by the whole thing and there really wasn't anything I didn't like. I thought it was great for our relationship to go into every aspect we did."
"The only thing that was disappointing was that the sessions went by way too quickly."
"I most liked that the process was tailored to us as a mature couple who have some of the knowledge and experience that, perhaps, another couple may not have."
"Conversation around conflict- it helped us actually address what we both knew was going on but had remained unaddressed."
A Client Reflects on the MARI:
"I knew I was struggling both emotionally and spiritually, yet I could not break the cycle. After drawing my mandala and having a MARI assessment, I felt like I understood the situation and myself better. My problem was more manageable."

Spiritual Direction | $100/hr.
Discernment Consultation |
Spiritual direction is useful for any person who wants to have a more focused relationship with God. It is a kind of "holy listening" and is different from pastoral counseling as it is solely focused on the spiritual directee's (that's you!) relationship with God.
While I can do traditional spiritual direction (talking, praying, reflection, and silence), instead, I often engage the Arts. For example, we may do a mandala, make a collage, listen to music, or do physical movement in a session, depending on where the Holy Spirit is calling us.
I like to meet with directees about every 4-6 weeks.
Each session is one hour in length. Sliding scale fee is available.
Have something stirring that you need a short-term, creative consultant to help you figure it out and not long-term spiritual direction? Discernment Consultation is for you! We spend time together in prayer, utilizing creativity and tools to explore core values, spiritual gifts, and where God is currently beckoning in your particular situation.
Examples of what others have used Discernment Consultation for: Job changes, vocation changes, couples who are looking for a new way to engage in a ministry together, asking a big life question, and transitions of any kind.
