Everyone will search for his [own] treasure, find it, and then want to be better than he was in his former life. Lead will play its role until the world has no further need for lead; and then lead will have to turn itself into gold. That's what alchemists do. They show that when we strive to become better than we are, everything around us becomes better, too.

Paolo Coelho

I’ve been asked by many people “why Alchemy Counseling?” What even is alchemy? 


In a nutshell, alchemy was a seemingly magical process practiced by many early scientists and philosophers. Its goal was the transformation, creation, and combination of matter - most famously, turning lead into gold. Although we have never been successful in doing so, we are all the potential alchemists of our own lives.


We have the power to fundamentally transform our inner selves, and create new meanings that give us a true sense of self-worth. The dull, gray “lead” in our lives has the potential to become brilliant and priceless gold. The alchemy of old utilized formulas and procedures; the alchemy of today is that of changing and “transmuting” self-defeating thoughts, feelings, and behaviors into mastery of self. 

While the goal of ancient alchemists was to manifest gold, Alchemy Counseling seeks to help you turn the emotional lead that’s weighing you down into feeling golden.
