Shirley Riga’s life changed dramatically in 1981 when her youngest daughter was born with two liver diseases. For her own sanity, Shirley searched for tools she could use to help herself and her family, and she found Dr. Susan Jeffers’ book Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. It was a resource she latched onto for many difficult years and events. As a trained practitioner in Psychosynthesis Counseling and drawing on her life experiences, Shirley wrote Tools for the Exceptional Parent of a Chronically-Ill Child (Strong Voices Publishing, 2016) a self-help book offering helpful daily advice to caregivers, and then a workbook, Tools for the Caregiver: A Workbook for Finding Yourself Through Caregiving (Strong Voices Publishing, 2018) a workbook to help manage your caregiving journey.

In 2011, Shirley became a licensed instructor for Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway. Wanting to integrate a spiritual dimension into her work, Shirley completed a two-year Spiritual Director certification program through the Rowe Center. This training helped develop her deep listening skills, compassion and awareness of each person's essence and the many ways the sacred manifests in people’s lives. Bringing her mediumship abilities into soul readings, Shirley is able to help people find a deeper sense of inner alignment. As a spiritual guide, she can help people explore their connection to the divine however they define that. Shirley is effective in helping people who are at a crossroads in their lives or at a standstill, because fear is always an operating factor. She has a special interest in supporting caregivers, people experiencing bereavement, and the LGBTQIA community.  www.shirleyriga.com
