About Patricia

“The journey in seeing myself as fully whole all because of my brokenness has created magic in my life, as it will for you too.” 

Patri­cia A. Jones, LCSW‑R, ACSW is a strength-based, trau­ma informed psy­chother­a­pist in pri­vate prac­tice in East Auro­ra, NY.

For 30+ years she has had the priv­i­lege of work­ing with chil­dren, ado­les­cents, adults, and fam­i­lies in help­ing them see their wholeness.

A shaman­ic prac­ti­tion­er and Rei­ki Mas­ter as well, Patri­cia inte­grates these spir­i­tu­al heal­ing modal­i­ties into her practice.

About John

“A lifetime of carrying shame and grief has redefined my life purpose.” 

As a young para­medic in Toron­to, I often piqued the curios­i­ty of my friends about my job.

Occa­sion­al­ly, I would men­tion my encoun­ters with what I fond­ly called my “Dead Poets Soci­ety,” a nod to the film fea­tur­ing Robin Williams. These encoun­ters, expressed through the final expres­sions of the depart­ed, taught me pro­found lessons of grief.

Over time, I dis­cov­ered a deep­er call­ing as a shaman, delv­ing into the world of the deceased, ances­tors, and benev­o­lent spirits.

This path pro­vid­ed me with valu­able teach­ings, knowl­edge, and oppor­tu­ni­ties for heal­ing as I learned to tend to a life­time of shame and grieving.

Now retired after 35 years of ser­vice, I tend to my shaman­ic heal­ing prac­tice work­ing with clients suf­fer­ing from soul loss, and tend­ing to lost spirits.

We under­stand your jour­ney and the courage you need to walk with and grow from your grief. Let us help you. 

It only takes 5 seconds


To call out the many forms of grief which weigh us down, steal our light and hard­en our hearts, and to light­en one’s sor­rows as we are intro­duced to meth­ods of soul­ful griev­ing and healing.


To inspire the explo­ration of grief;   build­ing greater resilience by devel­op­ing hid­den gifts in the face of loss; cul­ti­vat­ing com­pas­sion and deep­en­ing con­nec­tions to those who live on.
