Roger Strachan

Roger_Strachan.jpgEarning a Ph.D. under the precepts of the scientist-practitioner model, I was educated in scientific psychology and applied counseling skills. Neurophysiology, genetics and clinical psychology were my special interests. Having taught undergraduate and graduate courses in psychology and maintained a clinical/counseling practice for 57 years, it has been my privilege to serve students and clients in their process of self-discovery and personal growth, making choices to enhance their lives.

The process of walking alongside my students and clients and facilitating their inherited genetic personality characteristics, in relationship to their life experiences, has validated that all individuals are unique and direct their personal lives. I created a theoretical model Self/Soul/Spirit that remains in constant change and adaptation to current understandings of human biology, physics and metaphysics.

We believe that as we discover the various aspects/parts of our self, we learn to truly accept ourselves and open to Love. In identifying these parts and expressing them honestly, we are living our truth or life purpose which can be seen as our Divine potential. Learning to love oneself opens us to compassion for others and for the earth.

I help people explore and embody lives of deep meaning, by knowing themselves more fully and taking responsibility for what they find. Blending the Self-Soul-Spirit model (developed by Roger T. Strachan, Ph.D.) with in-the-moment embodiment facilitation and a commitment to authenticity, I support individuals longing to soulfully contribute to this moment of personal and planetary awakening.

I particularly enjoy supporting men undergoing major life transitions and transformations. Often, these times can be confusing as an old “way” or “story” of being dies, and we are trying to navigate the birth of a new one we don’t yet know.

Stefania Mesoraca

Stefania_Mesoraca.pngI’m passionate about helping men and women who want to create profound relationships. I look for the patterns that keep you from getting what you want, and I support you in creating real change, either in your existing relationship or in finding the right partner.  Working with me is like being in a relational gym, where you actually get to practice change in real time, as we get in touch directly with the many parts of you and how they show up to relationship. In addition to certification and training in the Mandala model, I bring 20 years of mindfulness practice and training in various relationship development modalities, many of which I’ve applied to the real world crucible of my own marriage over the past 13 years.

Tracy Schrunk

Tracy_Schrunk.pngI am passionate about helping women, families, and couples find the courage to create an authentic life and walk their own paths.  Each and every one of us is uniquely different as are each of our journeys that we create in this lifetime with ourselves, within relationships, and with the world.  I particularly focus on women in a variety of contexts and relationships.  Whether a career change, a major life transition, relationship choices, creating new norms, re-building and healing after loss or trauma, choosing a direction as a young adult, or answering that impulse or deeper sense that there is something more for you, how do you determine what it is  that you truly desire from the deepest part of you?
