ABOUT

Hi! I’m Patty Binns Farinola.

I am a professionally trained workshop instructor, personal counselor, and spiritual adviser who helps people find wholeness within themselves so they can create awesome, exciting and fulfilling lives.

My work is based on this foundation:

Everything that happens in life is meant to assist in our soul’s evolution, and the goal of that evolution is wholeness, joy, power, and freedom. When we are whole within and connected to Spirit, those opportunities, people and situations that are appropriate for our authentic self automatically and easily show up.

This is true in all areas: love, work, friends, family, fun… you name it. I love helping clients make sense of the things going on in their lives from a soul perspective. The people who work with me find me to be safe, gentle, laser sharp, highly effective and fun. I encourage you to contact me to find out for yourself. Meanwhile, happy trails. May your life’s journey be filled with many blessings.

BACKGROUND

I began my career in the business world. My corporate history includes over twenty years of diverse experience with industry leading Fortune 100 corporations and privately held firms. I worked for such companies as Coca-Cola, Bank South (now BofA), and S1 Corporation, and my last position was Managing Director of Marketing for Georgia Natural Gas where I was the highest ranking female in the organization. I value my corporate experience as it provides a powerful foundation for my connection with clients.

I started my work with individuals as a personal coach in 1998. Back then, I helped people grow in the areas of leadership, communication, career success, personal branding, and creating profoundly fulfilling relationships. Through the course of my own personal evolution, I shifted my practice to include a focus on spiritual awareness.

I received my coaching education at CoachU and was at one time professionally certified through the International Coach Federation. I have training and experience in Pesso-Boyden System Psychomotor and the STAR process, both of which provide a profound understanding of the human psyche. Other relevant education includes personal development and leadership training through Landmark Education Corporation, the Center for Inner Knowing, and the Turknett Leadership Group.

Most importantly, I am a long-time student of mystical teachings, including Buddhism, Kabalah, Christian Mysticism, and Vedanta. I graduated from the seminary program of the St. Thomas Christian Church in 2012 with the degree of Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL). I employ an holistic approach  in my work with clients, blending practical, personal, and spiritual modalities for powerful growth, inner development, and long-lasting change.
