Rowynn Gilraine's therapeutic work integrates traditional and alternative psychotherapies, the personality and the Soul, the body and shamanic healing.
Her 22 years of counseling experience and over 3,500 hours of post-masters training in somatic, transpersonal, shamanic, and expressive arts therapies have allowed her to create a unique soul healing therapy that addresses issues on physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels simultaneously.
Rowynn's ability to facilitate deep soul healing journeys is influenced by her extensive training in transpersonal psychotherapies. She has a B.A. in Psychology from Reed College and an M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy from Pacifica Graduate Institute, the leading Jungian-oriented school in the United States.
Rowynn is an Alchemical Hypnotherapist and is certified in Clinical Hypnotherapy by the American Council of Hypnotist Examiners. She is certified as an advanced practitioner of Regression Therapy by the International Board of Regression Therapy. She completed training in between lives spiritual regression with Dr. Linda Backman, author of “Bringing Your Soul to Light,” and is certified by the International Between Lives Regression Network. Rowynn is also a certified practitioner of the Deep Memory Process developed by the late Dr. Roger Woolger, world authority on past lives and author of the Sounds True audio series “Eternal Return” and “Healing Your Past Lives.”
Rowynn's experience in regression therapies is complemented by her rich background in shamanic healing and counseling. She studied core shamanism with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies and has worked directly with many leaders in the field, including Michael Harner, Ph.D, Hank Wesselman, Ph.D and Betsy Bergstrom. While Rowynn has a background in core shamanism, she has a strong affinity for both the helping spirits connected with the Christian tradition and the spirit allies that are connected with Celtic and Norse shamanism. Her primary shamanic practices include seership, soul retrieval, destiny tracking, and the bardic arts.
Rowynn brings a strong background in body-centered psychotherapy to her soul healing work with clients. She has completed professional training in the Hakomi method of somatic trauma therapy with the Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute, founded by Pat Ogden, Ph.D. She studied working with complex trauma, dissociation, and attachment issues with Janina Fisher, Ph.D, trainer at the Trauma Center, founded by Bessel van der Kolk. She has additional training in Somatic Psychotherapy, somatic resourcing, and body-centered couples therapy with Bill Bowen, MFA, LMT, founder of Psycho-Physical therapy. She has studied tantra extensively and integrates tantric practices into her body-centered work with couples and singles who are looking for a soulmate.
Rowynn's rich background also includes professional training with many leaders in the field of sound healing and the expressive arts. She studied vocal performance at the Northwestern Conservatory of Music and has many years of experience performing and teaching voice. She is one of a handful of Americans to complete registration in Voice and Movement Therapy, a comprehensive, inter-modal expressive arts therapy that combines the extended vocal techniques of the Roy Hart Theatre in France with Jungian therapeutic principles. Rowynn has completed teacher's training in cross-cultural voicework with Silvia Nakkach, M.A., M.M.T., founder of the Vox Mundi School of the Voice. Other influential teachers include Chloe Goodchild, founder of "The Naked Voice" and author of the Sounds True audio series "Awakening Through Sound." Her study of vocal based therapies is complemented by full professional training in the Bonny Method of Guided Imagery and Music, a pioneering music-centered psychotherapy that helps clients shift personal issues and access the healing power of shamanic states of consciousness.
Rowynn's therapeutic work with others is deeply informed by her own ongoing soul healing journey, her meditation practice, and her conscious connection to her team of spiritual guides and allies. She has been an avid explorer of alternative healing and shamanism since her late teens and has journeyed deep into her own psyche and shamanic levels of reality. Her own core personal spiritual practice includes shamanic journeywork and bardic, healing, and seership practices from the Celtic and Norse shamanic traditions. She has practiced both Buddhist and Esoteric Christian forms of meditation since her early 20’s and integrates these spiritual principles and practices into her healing work with clients.
Rowynn's rare depth of personal experience makes her a compassionate and competent guide. She is able to meet clients where they are while unlocking their potential to transform their lives and live their destiny. Her passion and her soul mission is to help people heal on a soul level and live a soul-infused life, creating a new era of wholeness and unity for humanity, one soul at a time.
“Rowynn's compassion, clairvoyance, and ability to be unshakingly present have allowed for the deepest exploration and self-acceptance I've ever experienced with a counselor. Rowynn consistently provides a sacred, safe, and grounded space where I feel my own power, intuition, and sensitivity. I deeply recommend her to anyone interested in fully opening up to the totality and beautiful truth of who they are.“
~ H.W., Nutritionist and Psychic Healer
“It wasn't until I started working with Rowynn that I started getting those "leaps" I was looking for. Issues that had been seemingly unchangeable for years started to shift. Rowynn is rare healer. She has skill, intuitive ability, and a deeply compassionate presence. She also expresses a warrior energy - a warrior on your behalf!“

“Rowynn is an extremely gifted and sensitive counselor and guide. Her channeling and soulmate relationship work has helped me during one of the most difficult times of my life. It was our work together that began to bring change, understanding, and peace to my life. When there are strong metaphysical and spiritual forces at work in a situation or relationship (and there usually are!), Rowynn is the one to understand and to know how to move forward to create solutions.“ J.I., Artist
