Patricia Fero has been empowering women for over 30 years by holding space for deep thearputic work and spiritual growth.
Patricia was born for these times. She is a passionate woman who has dedicated her life to igniting the collective feminine in planetary awakening. Her capacity for clearing her own internalized patriarchy and fierce listening are the magic she brings to every setting.
The author of four books, Patricia has shared her wisdom through writing. Her first, Mining for Diamonds shows how people can use adversity to create resiliency. What happens When Women Wake Up? is a roadmap for clearing internalized patriarchy.
Her third book, Sacred Marching Orders, describes the new energy of the solar feminine. Marianne Williamson’s endorsement reads: “Women owning our power and using it collaboratively is what our planet desperately needs. Sacred Marching Orders is a call to women to channel our passion into the healing of the world.”
Patricia has grown an active psychotherapy practice in Ann Arbor, Michigan over the past 30 years. She is assisted by her black cocker spaniel, Dexter. Patricia is certified in a cutting edge advanced grief treatment, Induced After Death Communication (IADC) facilitator. Her fourth book, titled The Other Side of the Door, is a guidebook for connecting with loved ones who have crossed over.
