Welcome to our new Sacred Spaces web space!

For those of you who don’t yet know me, the quick version of my story (see About Maria for more) is that I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who has become over time, more of something like a “Divine Path Facilitator”.

So what the heck does that mean?! For me, it’s pretty synonymous with the Sacred Spaces mission described below.

As we clear our psychological barriers to Spirit (what many call God), we more easily access Divine Wisdom (higher truths) and Guidance (signs that point the way), align to our Divine Path (the direction where Wisdom and Guidance lead us) and manifest our Divine Purpose (what we are here to do, how we are to serve the greater good)—a very different and fulfilling way to live! Conversely, when we seek and find this Wisdom and follow this Guidance, those barriers/blocks become easier to overcome. As you can imagine, we begin experiencing more joy and love and peace and meaning in our lives.

There’s something quite powerful about combining the great psychotherapy tools of my trade with the higher realm of Spirit to facilitate this process for myself and for others. Each section of this website further elaborates different aspects of this path toward wholeness. Even the journey to create it was a Spirit-driven one, with Divine Guidance every step of the way! (see Website Story for more)

I am hoping this website will also serve to inspire you on your own personal journey as I have been and continue to be inspired by so many.

In the process together,
