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.


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 connecting 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. As a graduate of the seminary program of the St. Thomas Christian Church, I have a Masters in Sacred Theology (STM). I employ a holistic approach  in my work with clients, blending practical, personal, and spiritual modalities for powerful growth, inner development, and long-lasting change.

Consider this: True joy, peace, awareness, abundance, wisdom and freedom can only take place on the inside, through conscious awareness and spiritual connection. I help guide people on the path to that attainment. Once this is achieved, the rest of life works – it evolves and unfolds as it should.

Having “been there done that” myself, I pull from my own personal experience and many levels of training to provide individual guidance and group classes that have clients look deeply into their personal patterns and soul purpose from a spiritual perspective, helping them move to new levels of awareness,  inner strength, and personal effectiveness, and helping them open up to the possibilities of true fulfillment in life.
