About Jodi Aman, LCSW
Counselor | Author | Spiritual Mentor
Leading groups, workshops and self-study courses
My love of helping others to heal started early. From the garden I started when I was 8 years old to the baby ducks I found a home for when I was 10, I have always been passionate about nurturing life. I have also personally felt deep empathy for and understood the complexities of other’s pain as I too have recovered from family chaos and resulting panic attacks. Using this keen understanding of how and why people get stuck, and my unique and varied training and experience I have decided to dedicate my life to helping people find peace of mind and create a life full of vitality.
And now, training other therapists and coaches to do the same!
Learning how to serve you better...
Over the past 25 years, graduating from Columbia University in Social Work and practicing with young parents facing adversity to going into private practice and then teaching Narrative Therapy in Norway, China, Mexico, Australia, Canada, and the US for the Dulwich Centre, I received a unique perspective on the similarities and differences of problems in cultures around the globe.
My holistic approach to healing trauma has brought me to work with Sonam Targee on Mindfulness and Ayurveda, Francois Raoult to become a certified Yoga Teacher, then, to Reverend Marcie Seidel to develop my intuition and birth my own body of work.
Completing Master Healer and Shapeshifter apprenticeship in 2009 - 2012 with John Perkins and Llyn Roberts, I acquired healing techniques passed to them with the permission to share from Quechua in Ecuador.
I am committed to life-long learning and as I am so in love with plants and their role in nourishing, I apprenticed with Susun Weed, as a herbalist and have also added this to the ways I heal and support others.
Combining decades of spiritual practice with mentorship from mystic Christina Solaris since 2016, I'm currently being certified in a gnostic teaching that combines western and sidereal astrology, Vedic principles, and communion with Mother Nature through an emergent zodiac called the Omega Codex.
You can find my Sparks on the Calm app!
Along with my love, three kids, and one Winston, I live in Rochester where we built an environmentally-friendly sacred space, and spend loads of time in my multiplying herb garden and making medicines to share with friends and family.
There are many ways to work with me.
One-on-one is the fastest to heal so I recommend it for everyone. Consult me!
However, if that is out of your price range, my group programs are exceptionally transformative!
For an even more modest investment, you can join a self-paced online video or audio course.
All of these live inside my online school and community, which is free to join (there are some free courses and videos in there, too!)
Earth Wisdom for Higher Consciousness
Heal your Past, Get Crystal Clarity
& Evolve your Spiritual Abilities
Empathic. For realsies.
Nobody knows exactly how you interpret your feelings, BUT I understand being in pain. That is one thing clients tell me over and over that, as a counselor, I "get it." And, when you're not used to that, it feels amazing. Heard. That's what you would feel when we worked together: Understood. Seen. Accepted.
It is only then, can you be liberated from the gunk that holds you back from full-frontal happiness. You'll be free to feel loved, connected, and supported on this earth and beyond. Emancipated from a mind full of doubt to self-realize into your higher divine purpose and soar.
And know that despite everything, you belong.
