Inner Child Work
Shadow Integration Work
Shamanic Healing

I wanted to share with you the inner child work I have done with Mary Hoffman. I met Mary in December of 2008 after my  boyfriend had arranged for me to have a series of sessions with her. She happened to be in my part of the country (New Mexico) so I was able to meet with her one on one for the first several of my sessions. Then when she returned to California, it was so easy to work with her over the phone.  For those of you who have not met Mary yet, she is childlike in her appearance, a petite woman with warm brown eyes and a gentle voice. But, don't mistake her appearance as being anything but a loving and strong being who has helped many of us recover our mishappen childhoods making them whole, fun and guiding us through our 'adult' lives.

Through my sessions, I was introduced for the first time to the different aspects of my inner child... the vulnerable child, the angry child, the magical child. I learned so much about who I am now and how my childhood experiences have colored this. What is so wonderful and freeing about this work is that I finally get to hear all the things I couldn't or wasn't allowed as a child to say or feel.

No, I am not running around now as a wild child screaming my feelings to anyone in my vicinity. Instead, I am hearing what my needs are and how I can give those to myself and to the child that missed out on some vital things required for healthy development as an adult. It's like I am almost being able to recreate the Father I needed and the love I needed that was not available to me then.

This stuff really works. Mary has travelled with me into my these parts of me and gently and protectively helped me to land in a place where I get to not only change this stuff for me, but also create more space for me to give this to others in my life.

I have been able to understand the dynamics of my relationship with my boyfriend and see how our interactions are sometimes the different aspect of our 'children' wanting to get what they need from each other.

Also,one of my daughter recently went through a truly traumatic event of sexual violence. I immediately had her connect with Mary and she is working every week with her. I know that traditional therapy would not have worked with her. As a mother, I feel so much of my child's pain but I cannot take it away. But, interestingly enough, because I am working with Mary on my own stuff, it is bringing space and love to my daughter in a way I could have not done on my own. My daughter is healing and so am I. We are connected in a much more powerful and healing way through Mary's work.

So I encourage those of you who have not done this work to try it. It takes courage to discover who you the inner you is but in return you receive all the wonderful love and  joy you deserve. ~ Victoria

She is truly GIFTED beyond words in her healing work and I am beyond GRATEFUL. ~Madison Christine MFT Santa Fe

Mary was right there holding the sacred space in a way I have never experienced with any other healer. My heart opened immediately and I felt safe to drop into the difficult places. Her presence alone is healing, and I wanted to cry out of joy just for finally feeling safe enough to let my heart speak. Andi Starr Singer, Songwriter, Musician

Before meeting Mary, I walked down many avenues of healing trying to find something that worked. Traditional therapy, body work, EMDR, Yoga, Pranic healing, psychic readings, angel cards, and of course books like the Law of Attraction, The Mastery of Love, and other books with messages about how to heal and live a full life. The problem was, I still felt miserable most of the time.Mary's work has taken me to the source of these triggers Thank You Mary! Your gift has changed my life. Suzanne Elizabeth Artist

Mary Elizabeth is by far the most enlightened and gifted healer I have ever met. I have worked with many different healers throughout my journey here, but Mary is in a league of her own. She works effortlessly between the worlds to help us heal our core issues. She works with the most compassion and loving light that I have ever seen or felt. She has got to be an angel sent from heaven to heal all that come into contact with her. She leads, guides, and nurtures you while helping you to find and reconnect to your true essence.
