"I experience deep satisfaction using my gifts to increase understanding and well-being." 

About Mair

I have:

  • been opening to, working with, receiving and sharing with angels, guides, spirits and many beings from this and other realms for decades.
  • helped people with their physical healings, difficult relationships and situations, supported understanding of themselves and others, guidance with decisions, finding lost items.
  • communicated with animals (cats, dogs, dolphins, flies, horses, rats…)
  • been described as naturally giving, spiritually attuned and as an empathic deep listener.
How I do what I do
I set my directing, ego-self aside; opening with reverence and gratitude as a channel to allow messages to come through me. I open to allow, receive, accept and share the information revealed with love, light, tenderness and compassion. 

I feel and sense the messages, translating them into English words. I remain aware of what is going on around me, but only retain the information that comes through me for 5-10 minutes after I have come back. You can ask questions or just be curious about what might come through.

I do not record in-person sessions, although you are welcome to do so. I can record phone or video sessions and send you the recording (no extra charge).

My experience with sessions is that they last about 45-60 minutes, although sometimes they are shorter or longer. 

Mair's Life Experience
I've learned, practiced and taught from various wisdom teachings, including: 

  • Science of Mind (trained as a religious science minister, teen adviser, and staff minister); 
  • Nonviolent Communication with developer Marshall Rosenberg (over 500 hours of direct teaching); 
  • Psychic Arts with Caryn McKlosky; 
  • Reiki with Earlene Gleisner; 
  • Alternatives to Violence.

I see the therapist’s role as someone who facilitates another person’s healing and growth in a supportive and respectful environment.  My work is based on advanced training in the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model of therapy.  I have found this approach to be very useful for transforming difficult feelings and experiences.  This is a mindfulness-based approach to understanding and appreciating ourselves as human beings. 

With a therapist’s support, you can better attend to both the internal and the external worlds and also repair the damage to the parts of you that have been wounded in life’s journey.  We can begin this together by paying close attention to various aspects of yourself:  your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, spiritual experiences and behaviors from a stance of curiosity, compassion and calm. 

Most of my work is with adults and adolescents.  Most insurance plans are accepted.

Life Coaching
 

julialyntonboelte@gmail.com  

My passion is helping you challenge yourself, do the work it takes, and live the life you really want! The focus of my coaching generally starts with job and career concerns—from there, I take a holistic viiew of everything that is happening for you, and together we begin to explore the interconnected areas of your life. Our work is a co-creation between the two of us, and we work together to create shifts in your life and your outlook that reverberate in places you hadn't expected.

Are you starting your career? Are you exploring a shift to a new job or field? Are you a seasoned worker or owner of a thriving business? Wherever you are today, I can help you investigate and improve the ways in which your life impacts your work (and vice versa), leading you to more certainty and satisfaction in your choices and decisions. When our work is complete, your life will be more in line with your true values, and you will have gained new perspectives and strategies to continue using on your own.

Psychotherapy 
My private practice at Full Circle Wellness Center is open to individuals of all ages who are seeking support in personal healing. My approach is heart-centered and strength-based. I create a safe, supportive and empathetic space in which we can work together to not only process the difficult issues but to also tap into your strengths and into what brings you joy. I also provide a fun and safe environment for children who may be in need of extra support to reach their fullest potential.

I use a variety of theories and techniques such as family systems, transpersonal theory, mindfulness cognitive behavioral, art therapy and other modalities depending on what is most useful for your unique needs. As a trained art therapist I am able to appreciate the benefits of traditional verbal therapy as well as art therapy, and I use both approaches in my practice according to your interests, needs, and expressive style. 
 

Art Therapy
Through creating art and reflecting on the art products and processes, you can increase your awareness of self and others.  My masters level training in art therapy and psychology gives me the expertise to combine creative, visual expression with psychotherapy to help you express and explore thoughts, feelings and experiences using your own unique style of expression. 

Some of the benefits available from art therapy include developing new skills for handling stress and anxiety, attaining insight into personal patterns and behavior, increasing confidence, peace, vitality, and well-being, improving ways to manage anger, depression and moods, discovering new ways to solve problems, experiencing creativity, and enhancing the overall quality of life

No previous art experience is needed. My art therapy interventions are individualized to meet each client’s goals and needs, and a variety of art mediums may be utilized.

When we are honest with ourselves, we know the truth of the opening line of Scott Peck’s best-selling book, The Road Less Traveled, “Life is difficult.” Becoming the person one is ‘intended’ to be takes a commitment to inner work, but we need not, often cannot, do this work alone. The healing of wounds and gaining inner strength usually best happens in a safe and understanding relationship with an experienced guide. In my practice, I use my thirty-plus years of training and experience in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, pastoral counseling, and clinical chaplaincy to assist you 1) to heal the wounds that linger from ‘the slings and arrows” of life, 2) to develop inner strength and confidence to deal with life’s inevitable difficulties, and 3) to find and live the fulfilling and loving life of which you are capable. It is possible to live happily!

Transformational breathing is a self-empowering technique using conscious breathing to improve many levels of health. There are many spiritual practices built around breathing.  In all forms of Yoga, the breath is an important component. Tia Chi and most Martial Arts work intensely with the breath.  As you open to your breath, you open to your life. It’s time to transcend the limitations of our sensory perceptions.

"I’m all about finding a meaningful life and making meaning out of the traumatic circumstances we encounter." 

I believe that everyone can live a full, rich and meaningful life regardless of the circumstances they encounter. 

I help people clear the obstacles that prevent them from achieving that objective.  I use Viktor Frankl’s definition of a meaningful life -- a sense of purpose, experiencing love (both giving and receiving love), a redemptive attitude toward suffering. I believe that this can be achieved by bringing all aspects of self and life into balance. To this end, I have chosen to practice Transpersonal Psychology in my practice.

I strive to achieve a balance in body, mind and spirit and to help my clients to create a life that supports that balance.

Psychotherapy for Adults and Children

What hurts? You are bright, inquisitive, sensitive. You desire wholeness and fulfillment for yourself along with healthy relationships with important people in your life. Yet you may have experienced past traumas or losses in life that seem to keep you stuck, or you find that you are repeating the same patterns or are attracting the wrong people. You may feel anxious or depressed, and you want to know why, and how to find relief. 

I can help you unravel destructive stories from the past and lay out new pathways to your 'becoming'.

My specialty is not treating specific disorders but on focusing intently on the whole of who you are, and what in your past and present may be contributing to your current challenges. I approach each client with great care, compassion and respect, and together we journey into the realm of soul.

Uncovering the unconscious through dreamwork is a great way to align with conscious intentions. Dream analysis can help to uncover hidden conflicts or agendas that can keep you stuck in old patterns. I have studied indigenous healing in-depth, and also offer sessions in somatic energy healing.

30 year’s experience.  I work with women, men, couples, teens, children, mothers and babies. Non discriminating. 

Please also see a description of my Energy Medicine practice below.

Although I had practiced yoga for 17 years in 2013, it wasn’t until I resigned from a job that was holding me back on many levels and began teaching yoga that I realized the full potency of my practice. The ensuing space allowed me the time and focus to align with my own power and essence in a way that I never had before, and to move forward to make this the most extraordinary time of my life. I moved from East Hampton, NY to Vashon Island, WA, a beautiful, natural oasis in the Pacific Northwest, where my husband, Michael, and I are building our simple, modern, dream home and studio. 

Now it is my honor to guide other 50+ women, through yoga, in connecting with the vision of their most exceptional life. I've always felt strongly that everyone deserves a home space that feels like their version of a serene haven in a chaotic world; the place where they can restore and recharge daily to live their life to the fullest. I also honor exactly where everyone is on their journey and in their process of self-discovery.

I partner with professional home organizers and interior designers to assist in achieving spaciousness in all areas of life.

I have been teaching yoga since 2013. I also had a home organizing business for three years. The process of letting go of what no longer serves – in both mind/body and in the home environment – can turn chaos into serenity. By creating spaciousness in our mind and body through breath and mind/body awareness, we can create spaciousness in the rooms of our home that mirror that, aligning inner and outer worlds. I love what Colleen Saidman Yee says in her 2015 book, Yoga for Life:

"Yoga is about the search for space, physically and emotionally."

I received my 200-hour yoga teacher certification at KamaDeva Yoga in East Hampton, NY, studying with Jessica Bellofatto and Lois Nesbit. I offer private sessions and teach a mindful vinyasa flow class on Tuesdays at Spoke Yoga Studio and at the Vashon Athletic Club on Vashon (details on Yoga Teaching Schedule page). I'm also planning a quarterly one-day yoga + spaciousness workshop beginning in 2016; dates and location to be determined.

Whether we work together individually, you attend one of my group classes or attend a workshop, I will guide you in connecting more fully with your truest, most alive self, breathing serenity into your mind, your body, your home – and your life. Let's make this the most extraordinary time of our lives!

Gyrotonic methodology is a movement system that is designed to exercise the body's musculature while mobilizing and articulating the joints. The exercises are fluid, three-dimensional and gentle.  When coordinated with a synchronized breathing pattern, they stimulate the cardiovascular and nervous systems and maximize the function of the spine.  Exercises are performed on specialized equipment that facilitates the spiraling, circular and undulating movements that are unique to Gyrotonic training.

I am the catalyst, the client the healer.  Reiki assures a clear field for intuitive listening to the clients needs. I often use vocal sounds, which can help to release physical/emotional blocks, release stress and pain. This process often utilizes the soul's metaphors as they are symptomatically expressed. Also, I offer individual healing music, depending on the need and wishes of the client, usually including the harp.

Rolfing
A Rolfer systematically works the body's connective tissue, or fascia, to release strain and tension patterns that have accumulated over time from physical or emotional stresses and traumas. His goal is to instill order and improve balance and alignment. With Rolfing, an individual often feels relief of chronic tension or body pain, improvement in athletic performance, greater ease in movement, clarity in living, or simply an increased sense of general well-being. The objective of Rolfing is to empower people, and help them to realize their full potentials, be it in the physical, emotional, or spiritual parts of their lives.

Visceral and Cranial Manipulation
Visceral and cranial manipulation are two modalities that have been developed by osteopaths. They are an excellent complement to Rolfing, facilitating access to realms of the body not addressed in the traditional Rolfing paradigm. Together, these three approaches form a thorough way to address our bodies and help us realize our full potential.

In addition, I provided acupuncture for seven years at Fairfax Psychiatric Hospital, and have become an expert in the field of acupuncture for mental health, emotional imbalances, and stress-related conditions.

Treatment in my office is never rushed, and patients who are afraid of needles almost always find that their fears are unnecessary. Acupuncture is a profoundly relaxing experience and in my office you will be well taken care of.

Grief, loss, death, dying—the most frightening words in human experience—and yet, also the most profound.  I have been a caregiver for four individuals with cancer who were dying, including my husband, mother and two friends.  Strange to say, when we have an opportunity to become bigger, rather than smaller, through crisis, we end up with gratitude rather than despair. 

I’m a registered counselor in Washington and have published articles on healing from grief, care for the dying, and widowhood in Body & Soul magazine, in “When a Lifemate Dies: Stories of Love, Loss, and Healing (Fairview Press),” and in other venues, including in the online journal for WholisticHealingResearch.com.  I have a masters in Psychology and Spirituality from Saybrook Graduate School and am certified in the Family Systems Therapy work of Bert Hellinger.  I’ve also held workshops and written on mysticism, psychic healing, holistic work with the dying, and life after death.

As a former teacher, I bring 20 years of experience to my counseling with children, youth, and parents.  As a writer, photographer, and lifelong student, I bring passion to fostering the creative process in others.  I've studied energy healing for 12 years and love to show people simple ways to overcome anxiety, fear, grief, and other negative emotions.  My approach includes conversation, inspiration, challenge, and humor.

julialyntonboelte@gmail.com  

My passion is helping you challenge yourself, do the work it takes, and live the life you really want! The focus of my coaching generally starts with job and career concerns—from there, I take a holistic viiew of everything that is happening for you, and together we begin to explore the interconnected areas of your life. Our work is a co-creation between the two of us, and we work together to create shifts in your life and your outlook that reverberate in places you hadn't expected.

Are you starting your career? Are you exploring a shift to a new job or field? Are you a seasoned worker or owner of a thriving business? Wherever you are today, I can help you investigate and improve the ways in which your life impacts your work (and vice versa), leading you to more certainty and satisfaction in your choices and decisions. When our work is complete, your life will be more in line with your true values, and you will have gained new perspectives and strategies to continue using on your own.

The word “doula” comes from ancient Greece and means “to mother the mother” or “woman’s servant.” 

As a birth and postpartum doula, I provide women and their families with loving support and critical information so that they can make the best choices for themselves during the transformative time of pregnancy, birth, and the postpartum period.  I help women discover their power and take birth back, to make it their own. 

Birth packages include two prenatal visits (where we discuss desires, wishes and fears and formulate a birth plan), 24-hour support (via phone or email) leading up to the birth, continuous support at the birth (from the time the mother wants me there until the baby is born), and a postpartum visit (to process the birth). 

Postpartum doula services aim to ease the transition of bringing baby home. I listen to any difficulties the family is facing and help them to gain confidence in themselves as parents to this tiny new being. My tasks vary depending on the family’s needs and are not limited to the following: breastfeeding support, baby or sibling care, information on local resources, light housekeeping, running errands, meal preparation and making referrals where appropriate. 

I am active in the Seattle area birth community and regularly attend continuing education events.

Shamanic methods use the elements of breath, plant essences, sound, stones and fire to facilitate wholeness.  Healing occurs at the energetic level of the body, clearing the “original wound” before it manifests physically.

A treatment may include clearing and balancing of the chakras, scanning of the energy field to identify and remove dense energies, the removal of energetic attachments or intrusions detrimental to health, or the retrieval of essential life energy lost to traumatic events. 

Other services include Peruvian Despacho Ceremony to bring harmonious outcomes to important situations,  home and land clearing, and consultation, coaching, and classes in shamanic dreaming for adults and children. Office visits, distance treatments, and phone consultations available.

Kim Newall is trained in the shamanic medicine practices of the indigenous peoples of Peru. She has studied with Michael Harner, Alberto Villoldo, Cuzco shaman Jose Luis Herrera, and Cherokee medicine woman Mary Blankenship. She is a graduate of the Wiracocha Institute Healing School and Post Graduate Studies, and is a certified Dream Teacher Trainer through Robert Moss’s School for Active Dreaming.

Is Your Teen in Crisis?   It is never too late to restore your relationship with your teen, even if both of you are facing a crisis.  In fact, a crisis may be an ideal opportunity to strengthen your bond.  I am here to be your guide, coach and ally through that process.  I have developed The Conifer Course to help you reclaim your teen through kindness, empathy, honesty and structure.    The course is designed for making radical improvements in twelve to sixteen weeks.  It is an intensive, unique curriculum that includes regular and interim telephone sessions at times convenient for you, as well as daily exercises, parenting tools and generous email support.  Together, we will tailor the content to fit your situation.  For more information, please visit www.conifercoaching.com

Time to Re-Balance Commitments?  If your attention is torn between work obligations, the needs of aging parents, relationship changes, financial stress or other emerging demands, you may find it hard to be responsive to your teen.  Coaching can help immensely in balancing parental, personal and professional goals.  You can learn to manage your mind, as well as your time.  You can craft a life that blends the interests of everyone you love  – including yours.  Please visit www.coachableparent.com  to learn more. 

My Philosophy.  Behavior follows relationship.  Hostility, defiance, dishonesty, rejection, sullen silence – these are all forms of indirect communication.  As your relationship with your child improves, and he or she rebuilds trust in you, direct communication should become easier.  You will be better able to provide the emotional support and comforting environment that will draw your teen back to you – and away from risky behavior and negative influences.  You can begin this work today.  I will coach you to a new understanding grounded in trust and love.

My Background.  I have worked extensively with teens and their families as a social worker, therapist,  public defender, and volunteer.  I have also raised three wonderful children.  Please visit my website for details.

Scheduling.  To make scheduling easy for busy parents, I coach by telephone every day of the week, including evening hours.  Please call to schedule a complimentary  session.

"The body is meant to move in all planes of motion. 
The older I get and the more I learn about this ever-evolving science of movement the more in awe I am! " 

I teach a variety of classes and offer private, semi-private, athletic training for sports and post PT rehabilitation.

Classes range from just getting back to exercise to high intensity circuit training. 
I use every modality available to me to train clients to reach their individual needs and goals from stretch bands, physio balls, balance discs to ViPR, TRX, free weights and even the bouldering wall to name a few! 

For the current schedule please visit my website below or stop by the Vashon Recess Lab and pick one up. 
 

My Story:
I was working for an outdoor fitness business with nine stores when a PT friend asked me if I had some time to volunteer and help her facilitate a class for women who had cancer.   I had background as a youth soccer coach and referee and a lifetime of competing in several sports, but really was not formally trained as a personal trainer (yet) -- but I said “yes”.

If it wasn’t for that humbling experience, I don’t know where I would be today.  It changed my course completely.  I was inspired by their strength, their commitment to take an active role in healing their physical and emotional being, their sense of humor - even when some of them felt sick most of the time. 

We can learn so much by watching how others live!

I favor a psychodynamic approach, and sometimes work with dreams, stories, myths, and art work, although I am comfortable with a wide variety of approaches including family systems, narrative, and practical behavioral and learning approaches as well.

"Ultimately, my task as a nature-based psychotherapist, is to accompany you as you discover who you really are and uncover your deepest gifts for this world. I feel honored to be a part of this journey and am inspired by your courage."
"As a depth oriented psychotherapist, I work with what lies beneath the surface of conscious awareness. In other words, I work with my client's psyche, their soul, a person's unique purpose and identity. I help my clients discover their inner beauty, their original wholeness, while tending to the psychological wounds and trauma. 

It is my belief that healing occurs when repressed, rejected, or denied aspects of the psyche are integrated and understood, shifting consciousness and allowing for individuals to become more fully human. 

As an ecopyschotherapist, I utilize the natural world as a template for maturation and allow nature itself to be the primary guide to wholeness and self-healing. 

I have both an indoor office and work with clients on the land as a way to help support a deeper connection to self and the more-than-human world.

This Creative Life Coaching for Women

I love to inspire women to embrace who you really are – your whole self! - so you can
make the creative leap to meet challenges by growing your skillful ability to connect, play, generate joy and thrive. In sessions, I invite you to wonder, focus, and reveal your inner experiences. Bring issues and potentials you might otherwise be inclined to “work on”.

Your willingness and curiosity open up my toolkit. Together we’ll presence, connect and play – freeing up a flow of insight, self-esteem, body-felt appreciation and measurable, pleasurable action steps to create what you really want.

Many women I work and play with are sensing their readiness to engage and contribute to life on a whole new level. I enjoy coaching artists, writers, therapists, healing practitioners, coaches, musicians, teachers, mothers, grandmothers, aunties and entrepreneurs. Our teamwork illuminates how to give your whole being abundant, creative loving attention, as you discover how to enjoy living moment-to-moment from your essential self.

I am delighted to be currently adventuring in Kathlyn and Gay Hendrick’s Leadership and Transformation Circle (they are fabulous mentors, renowned coaches and authors of Conscious Loving, Conscious Heart, The Big Leap, Learning to Love Yourself and
Attracting Genuine Love). I commit to bringing you gems! 

Contact me for a free consultation. I look forward to connecting with you.

As you create your business to attract success and give you all of the freedom you desire, do you ever:
  • Work harder and harder, yet find that overwhelm and stress grow faster than your income? 
  • Wonder if you’ll ever really be able to reach your full potential through your business?
  • Feel constricted in your finances?
  • Wish that through your business, you could have more opportunities to travel, enjoy the world, and live a healthy global lifestyle?
I support entrepreneurs and aspiring speakers to feed the source of their success, release financial constriction, and build a professional life that bends to their itinerary.

I originally began as a nutrition mentor, where I built a business as a full expression of my passions. By blending my love of travel, nutrition, and personal growth, I was able to travel often with my business.  I brought my nutrition services to TV host Rick Steves, and started teaching Traveling Healthy in Europe classes through his company.

Behind the scenes, entrepreneurs from around the world were showing up to seek my support and asked to learn how I created my business. I now solely mentor entrepreneurs and aspiring speakers, and in the past one and a half years have spent over 570 hours personally coaching entrepreneurs to excel in their businesses. My clients have been interviewed on television and travel the world with their businesses.

I love to help business owners use high-vibrational marketing techniques that attract clients and opportunities to them, literally because of their glowing presence, personality and joyful appreciation for exactly where they are right now.

The same processes that I teach my clients were what allowed me to go from earning $1,200 per month to signing on over $17,000 worth of new business in 30 days.

I trained in marketing with multi-million dollar entrepreneur Fabienne Fredrickson, and received further business and wealth training through Amanda Moxley, Christina Morassi and David Neagle. I bring my own entrepreneurial experience to my clients, combined with everything I've learned from the more than $100,000 invested in my own business development. I have a degree in business, food science and natural health from The Evergreen State College, and received my certification as a Health Coach from The Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York City.

As a speaker, I have been interviewed on television, and have been invited to inspire audiences of up to 1,000 attendees at business events, women’s organizations, and financial companies.

A Clear Reflection…Coaching for Life!!

"Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told, I'm with you kid. Let's go!" 

                                                                         - Maya Angelou

We live in a complex world – one that challenges us in many ways:our roles, our sense of who we are and what we want.  The world is changing, and the opportunity for new ideas, new paths, new direction is never greater than during transitional times. I've been working with individuals for over 25 years assisting them in developing clarity around what's really important in life; what are their strengths – helping them marshal their gifts, talents and inner resources to be directed with greater focus toward their desired goals. Personal coaching can be a bridge to that new path or new idea. It can help you take life by the lapel and go forward!
