Ilona Sakalauskas, MSW, LCSW, RN
Ilona Sakalauskas is a holistic counselor and energy healer with 30+ years of experience. Her training includes traditional studies in nursing, sociology, and clinical social work.
Post graduate interests focused on developing skills in cognitive behavioral work, structural, strategic, ethnic, and process oriented family systems approaches, addictions studies, group relations, NLP, grief, bereavement, and trauma recovery work.
Her personal healing work opened many worlds, as well as challenges to learn to walk in them. A thirteen year descent into her deeper realms provided a foundation and skill development in depth psychology, and opened avenues of interest and study in energy healing.
She learned Therapeutic Touch with Dolores Krieger and others, Healing Touch with the American Holistic Nurses Association, Hands-On Shakti with Vicki Noble, Constellation Approach with Jamy and Peter Faust, and she is a graduate of the Barbara Brennan School of Healing.
From 2000 to 2009 she developed and taught two programs for personal development and healing. The Path of the Heart School of Transpersonal Living, a 3 ½ year program teaching skills in personal growth, energy healing, psychic development, relating with Other sentient life, and honoring the cycles of life, death, rebirth in ourselves and nature.
The Way of the Owl, a one year program for women wishing to explore honoring the Divine Feminine. Currently she offers a monthly New Moon gathering for women, individual classes in ceremony and devotion, and pursues independent research sparked by her personal growth and evolution.
A passionate personal interest integral to her perspective is her awareness of the ancient world of Old Europe as presented through the extensive works of renowned archaeologist Dr. Marija Gimbutas. Her heart was touched and opened to a profound healing energy as she learned about the cultural ways of her ancient ancestors.
Those people lived peacefully, respected and studied nature, honored ancestors, understood egalitarian gender relations, followed the natural cycles of life, death, rebirth, and understood the necessity of nurturing life as embodied in Feminine presence. She espouses these values, and they form a large part of the foundation of her healing perspective.
You are warmly invited to contact her for a consultation regarding your personal concerns. Some insurance is accepted for counseling services. An office located in a private natural setting embraces your sessions in the peace and gentleness of nature.
We must refocus our collective memory…
