Sylvia came to New Thought in 1986, became a Chaplain in 2001, was certified as a Practitioner in 2003 and in 2008 became a licensed Religious Science Practitioner through The United Centers for Spiritual Living.
Sylvia is available Sundays for individual prayer, is on the Prayer Team, and leads meditations. She volunteers on the Acts of Kindness team, Peace Now, and at MacClaren School for Boys.
Sylvia has had many profound experiences during her more than 30 years as an educator and consultant in regular and Special Education and Deaf Education. They provide her with opportunities to practice observation, deep listening, non-judgment and accepting each individual right where they are and then to empower them to go beyond their fears and do more. She supports each in developing their communication skills to express their needs and wants and to work through a situation with others with apologies and/or forgiveness. Virtues/God qualities are also part of the daily experience. She continues to evolve these skills in her own daily life, as a Practitioner and a Life Coach. (Sylvia is also a certified Life Coach with Maria Nemeth’s Academy for Coaching Excellence).
Sylvia enjoys supporting her clients to be the best they can be, to resolve situations in their lives which they wish to experience differently, to do their forgiveness work, and to celebrate their successes on the road to being a “human-being” instead of a “human-doing” and living their life with “ease” and “grace”. Sylvia has a deep commitment to the well being of all people.
