Jaspen Amodeo, M.A.
Do The Obstacles In Your Life Seem Insurmountable? Suffering is NOT Essential. Manifest your personal potential & highest Self. Access your ability to diminish negativity; gain wisdom through adversity; develop a lifestyle of grace, passion & ease.

Jaspen combines her classical graduate training with her specialized orientation to guide her clients towards emotional grounding, inner wisdom, problem solving, heightened creativity and advanced presence. Jaspen’s style is especially warm and compassionate as she reflects unique insight to her clients concerns.
