Meet Andrea-Marie Stark, PhDc

Integrative Counselor

Andrea-Marie Stark, PhDc has studied Hakomi and Trauma Therapy and is completing a doctoral degree in Depth Psychology at Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, California. Her pathway resonates with Pacifica’s motto, animae mundi colendae gratia, for the sake of tending the soul of the world.

Andrea-Marie engages in depth-based interventions such as dream work, art, and archetypal journeys. Her healing philosophy embraces eco-therapy and eco-spirituality, addressing intergenerational trauma, racial and ethnic equality, non-colonial attitudes, and indigenous wisdom traditions. She has been honored to study healing practices with indigenous healers of the Americas and of the Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition.

Andrea-Marie is a member of The American Tarot Association and a Professional Member of the ICRT Reiki Membership Association. She is certified in Radiant Heart Meditation and had a private mentorship with the Los Angeles School for Spiritual Arts. She has studied tarot with international scholars Mary Greer and Rachel Pollack and is a Holy Fire and Shakti Reiki Master. She is a founding member of the Dragonfly tribe, a collective of healers based in North America.

Andrea-Marie works with spirit and soul, and her approach is non-denominational and honoring of your personal life choices. Your one wild and precious life (as poet Mary Oliver wrote) is the pathway for your soul. Andrea-Marie will help you navigate the peaks and vales of the deepening journey.
