How my services assist with your situation

For those Living, I relay the needs and messages in situations where a person's communication abilities are strongly impeded.

"Words for the Nonspeaking" is targeted assistance for

Families, Caretakers, Healthcare providers, Teachers, Therapists, and related community members who are in relation to someone with nonspeaking medical diagnosis and various stages of neurological, medically related nonspeaking diagnoses. 

  • Nonspeaking Autism

  • Advanced Alzheimer's when speaking is not possible

  • Advanced ALS

  • Hospice patients when speaking is not possible, or is barely happening

  • Patients who are in a coma and cannot speak 

  • Diagnosed Neurological circumstances when speaking is not possible or severely impaired.

Have you hit a wall in your circumstances?
Are you facing an overwhelming and challenging situation? Perhaps, at this time, you have tried mostly all vitally important avenues to address the circumstances patiently and with Love, yet the solution seems out of reach or it seems improbable that much can change for the better.

This modality, which I have termed 'Words for the Nonspeaking,' is here to accompany your efforts and to access the communication aspect from a different angle or lens.

Now I invite you to think or imagine if you could literally ask the specific person with the diagnosis of "nonspeaking" to share with you the whole world that is inside and to be included in a solutions-based conversation.

My service is to make this possible, and it is possible. 

My skill set facilitates to open up a two-way line of expression from a non-medical, non-analytical framework. This service exists to specifically offer a view into the situation beyond what our five senses perceive. I uphold that what I am able to contribute serves as an accompaniment to your entire, established approach in care and treatment. Additionally, I continually honor your autonomy and the fullness of your own intuition and discernment abilities before, during, and after our session.

During our session, I serve to answer your targeted questions. When you ask a question, I am perceiving the circumstances with the Spiritual senses, the Clair senses, Insight, and specialized intuition, all in a cultivated, disciplined way - decades in the making.  Timeless Ethics are a foundation in my practice.

Your answers are provided and are directly applicable to your specific situation. It is a peaceful, calm experience, filled with receptivity and respect.



As it is a gift to work with diverse backgrounds professionally, with every session style there is neutral language used and I do not impose my beliefs or opinions onto the session, or throughout any communication. This is a trusted promise.

Inclusive and Augments any relevant Professional Medical Care

You have professionals who tend to the treatment, diagnoses, healthcare management.

My service here is meant to act as an accompaniment to their efforts, your efforts, and that what is generated from the two-way line of communication that is translated by me for you is integrated (as you feel led) into the whole picture. My service is to allow you to 'hear' the thoughts, feelings, questions, and answers of your Loved one, or person in your care, who otherwise would not be able to relay this to you at the level we experience during the session.

Unimpeded Awareness despite diagnosis or presenting symptoms

Bringing "Words for the Nonspeaking" to you is a great passion because it can change Lives in very fundamentally important ways.

Providing these sessions has opened my eyes since my first professional session surrounding someone diagnosed with nonspeaking autism, and changed my awareness of what is possible completely regarding any diagnoses that relate to nonspeaking conditions.

If it applies to you, as it does for many of my clients, this page provides the context and substantiation within the Christian faith in Our Charismata's services.

When people have found themselves in a pattern of hopelessness, worry, concern, stress, and just plain carrying the various burdens involved, when you are very ready, here is a pathway to seeing your circumstances with a new lens.  


Yes, there is a certain vulnerability involved in this process.  I am with you.

I support you in the courage required to explore this step and would like you to feel encouraged because I am professionally established, and I put great care into the ethics of my practice.

Our session is based in a non-judgmental premise, and the intention for you to feel welcomed, at ease, in a Peace-filled, compassionate connection.

F R A M E W O R K  for  U N D E R S T A N D I N G

From my professional perception and experience in this field

A person is not her or his or their diagnosis. 

A person is not his or her or their symptoms of an ailment or disability.

I am shown that the essential nature of a person is untouched by diagnosis or symptoms, and it is exactly there, in that essential place, where I am led to connect; using disciplined faculties beyond the five senses, using the Spiritual senses, insight, and cultivated intuition.


From there, I can facilitate expression for the communication of the thoughts, feelings, inner Life that never were, are, or will be impeded by physical difficulties of your Loved one.

O N L Y   W H A T   Y O U   A S K  and are open to knowing - that is what I translate. 

P l e a s e   b e   a s s u r e d, this session is specifically to bring to light what is Good, what is fruitful, helpful, meaningful, and Loving.  In other words, you will not be facing a "trial" filled with complaints. 

I happen to believe it is because we are working within a Spirit of Peace and Lovingkindness, that each session highlights what is most insightful and actionable for the Good of all.

These are commonly asked questions before this session is booked: "Will we find out embarrassing things? Will we be told we have approached this person's care in all of the wrong ways?  Will it just be about all of the ways we are failing, neglecting, or not able to give what this person really needs?"

The answer to each question is, "No."  Far from in a superficial way, each person experiencing this session finds an atmosphere of receptivity, of the Heart opening in new ways, of what is acknowledged as being deeply appreciated, and  v e r y   i m p o r t a n t l y  so many words of affection and gratitude, specific to your situation, that have been waiting to be expressed for as long as there has been that type of obstacle.  

C O L L A B O R A T I O N Kindly note that what I convey is not intrinsically intended to conflict with or negate the established methods of care (medical services, teachers, related professional advice). If Information that I translate seems to provide an alternate method, approach, or is seemingly "at odds" with what your team of professionals are communicating, please defer to them, a n d include your own innate insight. Many times there is a way to blend, combine, or create an intersection of the seemingly "at odds" pieces of Information.

A Brief Example of how my service may provide the following experience (confidentiality upheld, and specifics with permission): A mother who never heard her own young son verbally call her "mama" because of the nonspeaking Autism diagnosis and symptoms, was able to hear that and so much more: "...How he Loves story-time and has memorized the stories by now, but even more how he Loves being there with her while she is cooking, because he really likes the way everything smells. [This specific detail suprised the mother very much, because it was also one of her favorite activities to do with him there.] "The swings are his favorite, and he feels so safe with her near." [Again, just a brief excerpt.] Of course before connecting with this woman I did not know any of the details of this topic, or of their Life together, so she was amazed by how that could be "accessed," but even more importantly, she was moved to tears to "finally" know all of this from her son right there with her. ...That she was "a good mother," was her biggest concern, and wow did she receive her answer and Love in return during that session.

Stories of Learning and Experience. My Family Members.


I have (have had) several beloved family members who have or had nonspeaking Life circumstances for medical reasons. One great-uncle had scarlet fever in his youth, which led to a mostly entirely nonverbal condition and he was surely a vibrant man with a full inner Life, and a long Life at that! Sign Language was not an option.

Of the very few people he trusted or felt comfortable to have in his space, I was so honored on the day 'he approved' to let me sit with him to enjoy lunch together at his brother's restaurant. Otherwise, his rhythm was to enjoy his lunch at his favorite table solo and this was an unspoken understanding.

Somehow, after his careful assessment of me over time, I was "ok" and he could perceive when I was ready to understand what he had to share with me, nonverbally, without writing. 

Being about 9 or 10 years old, I talked enthusiastically about this or that during the lunch and then I experienced an unforgettable shift; a moment of clarity, a message to 'sit still' and listen 'differently,' to be quiet and hear from my great-uncle. It all happened effortlessly, it is difficult to explain scientifically. So he was one of several teachers from my very early youth about this way of being with, and sharing communication with people.


This session topic also has a personal imprint in my heart because from the time I was very young,
until age 12 (the time of her passing), I visited my paternal grandmother in the nursing home on a regular basis with my father.

She was there for 24/7 care due to the extent of her body's Parkinson's symptoms.  She could not speak vocally (this was before computers everywhere, and before the technology that can assist these days).

At that time, I did not think to share my experiences with my family because I figured it was what everyone was experiencing. My Grandmother could not speak, yet she and I communicated effortlessly without either of us talking. Over those years, she was a dear friend, a Grandmother in the fullest sense, and without me knowing at the time, she was validating, and allowing me to experience, this modality of interaction.

I Love you Grandmom Mary, thank you.  I aspire to bring honor to you in this service for others.

I have no intention of changing the way you think or changing, challenging, what you believe. In our Sessions I simply dive into the content aspiring to honor you, and the content provided for you!

Is "Our Charismata"... "Charismatic?"

NO, my services are not Charismatic.

Kindly understand, respectfully written, that Our Charismata service options and my practice are NOT "CHARISMATIC," as in the Charismatic movement, Charismatic Revival, Renewal, or Neo-Pentecostalism in the Christian Churches and related charismatic fellowship and worship services with the associated "zealous" qualities.

I am simply using the word "Charismata" on its own, which is translated from Greek to mean gifts.

Calm and Neutral

Sessions in any service option with me are a calm, peaceful, and as an aspiration, uplifting experience. I use neutral language, I do not impose my beliefs onto the session or in any correspondence. Thank you for taking a moment to be on the same page with me.
