Over 30 Years of Practice in Holistic Spiritual Therapy & Teaching
New Pathway to Healing!
Hi, I'm Petey Silveira LMFT
As a spiritual teacher, coach, public speaker, past-life regression expert, and author, I want to show you how to access healing at a soul level.
I have unlocked how every one of us can create healing through identifying our individual soul lessons, using different modalities of the Mind, Body, and Spirit to create lasting transformation. It is my mission to share my methodology with the world so that we all can find our peaceful place in this lifetime.
My career has been a manifestation of my personal journey, weaving together my spiritual awakening with my professional training.
Over my 34 years as a marriage and family therapist and spiritual teacher, I have deepened the interconnectedness between traditional psychotherapy, my spiritual practice as a meditation guide, and Kundalini yoga teacher, and as a hypnotherapist and past-life regression expert. This layered approach allows me to create custom prescriptions for an individual because I know I have the ingredients needed to create healing.

“I first began counseling with Petey against my will at the age of 15. My mother forced me to go to counseling due to my behaviors and my high level of anger which she could not understand. I was angry, rebellious, and rude and had no respect for authority or authority figures. I did not trust anyone, which I know made her job as my therapist very challenging. Petey was very patient, accepting and waited and worked with me until I was able to trust her enough to open up and share what was going on with me. From the age of 5 I had been sexually and physically abused by my biological father. I was unable to tell my mother what was happening because she was in an abusive marriage and unable to take care of herself, much less meet my needs emotionally and mentally. Petey accepted me for whom I was and did not force me to discuss the trauma I had endured until I was able. Looking back as an adult, I realize I have no idea how she managed to work with me. I did everything imaginable to push her away in at attempt to test her to see if she was trustworthy or if she would give up on me. Thankfully, she never did. There were times that it was so difficult for me to face my emotions that I would skip therapy so I wouldn’t have to feel what I was going through. Still, she never gave up on me. She would call me to make sure I was OK, and continued to work with me as her client. I know that I was an extremely challenging client, yet Petey continued to show me unconditional acceptance without judgment. Eventually I developed enough trust that I was able to be open with her without fear of rejection and was able to work through the trauma and pain I had endured. Petey worked with me and my family for years, never wavering in her efforts to help me move from being a victim to a survivor. Eventually the time came that it was time for me to graduate from counseling and face the world equipped with the skills Petey taught me during our counseling sessions. A few years later as I was graduating from college I decided that I wanted to go into the counseling profession based primarily on the relationship I had developed with Petey as a teenager. My desire was to help others who had been hurt be empowered to move forward with life like Petey had done with me. She encouraged me, telling me that she believed in me and that I would be a great therapist and even wrote a letter of recommendation for me to get into the Mental Health Counseling program. I graduated in 2006 and am now a Mental Health Counselor working with at risk children and their families. I believe that everything happens for a reason. That is why I strongly believe that Petey was meant to be my therapist. I know without her unconditional acceptance and respect, even when I may not have deserved it, allowed me to believe in myself and to overcome the battles I faced. It has been over 20 years since I first met Petey, yet everyday I think of her and all that she invested in me in order for me to become the person I am today. When I am working with clients, my goal is always for the client to have the same relationship with me that I believe I had with my therapist. I will never forget my counseling experience with her and am hopeful that one day I will be the lifeline for one of my clients that Petey was for me in the midst of my storms. Thank you Petey! Your efforts are not in vain!”

“We are a married couple that has worked with Petey during several periods in the life cycle of our long- term marriage. During the 25 years that we have known Petey Silviera she has been an incredible positive source of strength, fortitude, and understanding and has helped us through some extraordinary life cycle situations. We have worked with her as a couple and, on many occasions, for individual challenges. She has taught us invaluable techniques and helped us find our way through countless issues with our relationship with each other, our families and friends and career challenges. Her support and depth of understanding certainly contributed to our success both personally and in our careers. I can honestly say that her knowledge, understanding, patience and good humor have fostered and coached us through some tough times. Years would pass without any time together and yet she has always been there for us when we would need to re-connect. In recent years when were faced with a serious health crisis, Petey was there again for us to guide us through to a successful and thorough renewal and recovery to health. We can attribute the quality of our lives to the support and guidance of Petey.”

“I am a married, 40 year-old female, mother of two small children. My first experience with counseling came when I was 19 years old. My parents were divorcing after 32 years of marriage and my parents felt I was in need of some serious guidance. I went to get help to learn how to deal with the dissolution of my family, as I knew it, and walked away with life skills that transcended every area of my life. Over the course of my adult life I have returned to Petey during various milestones. My husband and I participated in couples counseling after getting married to learn how to meld two lives together and returned after the birth of our children. The communication skills and life skills we have learned have made us better marriage partners, friends and parents. The benefits far transcend just the two of us. I remember thinking I was going to counseling to help me with a “situation”. I now know I’ve gone to counseling to enhance my life and the lives of the ones I love. I am forever grateful to Petey Silveria for choosing to use her God-given talents to help me become the person I am now. I wouldn’t change a thing and I don’t know how many people can say that.”

“This one day workshop was perfect for me. I loved the power point presentation, quotes and exercises to access the subconscious. The list of soul lessons and tangible information shared in the morning keynote is something I still refer back to constantly. I went deep in the guided visualization! Petey’s voice and technique took me further and further down. I saw and met three family members that I will share my newfound light and forgiveness with them. I can’t wait for her next workshop!.”
I went deep in the guided visualization
This seminar was awesome and very informative. Petey made it easy to follow her voice and her technique allowed me to get deep into a meditative state and experience a past life in the regression. The soul lessons explanation and meditation was life-changing for me. This is something I will use throughout the rest of my life.”
Petey made it easy to follow her voice and her technique
I was amazed that even in a large group setting I was able to drop completely into the guided meditation and went to a past-life. I’ve never meditated or done hypnosis before so this was life changing for me. After the past-life regression I now understand my relationship with my mother. The healing exercises Petey did at the end of that lifetime will allow me to have grace for my mother and be at peace with some of the other relationships in this life.”
I’ve never meditated or done hypnosis before so this was life changing for me.
This workshop far exceeded my expectations! Petey’s therapeutic/counselor background helped integrate the way past-life regression can heal. The day was so full of information and teachings and culminated with the experiential nature of the learnings by the actual past-life regression! My past life regression was super informative and healing. It touched on the current issues and blocks I have today.”

“I came hoping to learn my soul lessons and that’s exactly what happened! During the guided mediation and gong, I could feel my throat chakra totally opening up! I would love to attend a class with Petey based on her new book, “Guided By The Truth, Honoring The Light Within.”
I could feel my throat chakra totally opening up!
“I wasn’t sure what to expect but I came out of this workshop wanting more! It’s so interesting how “spirit” can mean so many things to different people! I learned so many new concepts! Our harshest teachers are the ones who loved us the most to come to us in the manner they did. Learning about what homeostasis is how the soul tries to get our attention through mind, body and spirit is life-changing. Petey is a master teacher in this lifetime!.”
It’s so interesting how “spirit” can mean so many things to different people!
“I loved this event for so many reasons! Petey’s personal story was so interesting and her stories from clients and some of their past-life experiences was fascinating! Giving me the tools to discover my own homeostasis was empowering. Feeling the tangible proof of past-lives in the regression will stay with me forever! It was so healing!”

“My favorite part of this retreat was just being submerged in the healing space that was opened to us. Being around all my favorite things…yoga, essential oils,meditation, gong, lake, fire, etc…. The sacred vibration was so tangible here. I loved being around inspiring and empowered women living their joy and truth. The past-life regression with Petey was powerful and I had a deep emotional release and connected with the unconditional love of my soul. I feel like this was the perfect inspiration for a fresh start in my life. I met some amazing women. This was an evolutionary catalyst for my soul. The plant based meals from Chef C was OMG awesome! Thank you!”

“I came into this retreat looking for connection and clarity and that is exactly what I got. This is the most supportive, encouraging and empowering group of women I have ever met. I feel incredibly grateful for the opportunity to have experienced this level of soul healing with them.”

“The overall experience of the Sat Nam retreat was in one word, Inspiring. Each experience was like a treat for your soul; from the Welcome hours where we set up diffusers in our rooms with essential oils that we individualized to our needs, to our group meditations that despite the group setting, was so intimate and personal within each person’s space. I left the retreat having the feeling that I had gained so much. It’s been nearly 3 weeks and I am more focused, relaxed and thus, happier.
I made new connections and have a few more people in my life I can enjoy as friends as well.. If you are considering a retreat with Petey and Sarah, I highly recommend!
One of the aspects of the retreat (and mainly the catalyst of my decision to attend), is the Group Past Life regression. It’s amazing, even if you’ve never tried it, and know nothing about it. While it’s difficult to describe, as it is personal to each individual, it is a beautiful, restful, inner reflective encounter that leaves you both invigorated towards your life’s purpose as well as up lifted and “healed” from any past negativity. For me, I was able to experience a meaningful glimpse into a past lifetime that lead to deeply personal spiritual realizations and learnings that have continued to positively impact my everyday life, inclusive of my career. Thank you!!”
In one word, Inspiring
“This was the first time in my life that I have gone to a retreat, as well as ever practiced Yoga and Meditation. I must admit I had reservations and was nervous because it was all so new to me. But Petey & Sarah are a dynamic duo! The entire weekend was planned so strategically from discovering the essential oil I needed for the chakra that needed to be balanced, identifying my Chakra, and the guided meditation with Petey that helped me discover who I really am! During her group past-life regression I felt a sense of release and completion and understanding. I’m so grateful for these gifts.
It was so enlightening and powerful. I have never connected with so many inspirational women. I am in a major transition in my life and this retreat was so timely. If I had to sum up my entire experience in one word it would be “Awakening”!! Being self-aware, awake and living my life on purpose and healing my soul was the best thing I could have ever done for myself!”
I felt a sense of release and completion and understanding
“This retreat was the perfect balance of freedom for self exploration, structured learning and nutrition. I have worked with Petey and Sarah separately, but the combination of these two makes for a perfectly balanced weekend. By incorporating yoga with meditation and essential oils with group past-life regression, this retreat offers a unique experience that left me feeling fully recharged, grounded and wanting even more.
The journey of self discovery can feel so uncomfortable and be hard at times. These ladies and their practice and teachings make you feel safe enough to truly begin to unfold. This retreat is perfect for the person that wants to dive a little deeper into their soul for healing but is not sure where to start and is equally a good fit for the person that has been on this path of self discovery for a long time. In one weekend many doors were opened and I left needing and wanting more.
The focused plant-based healthy men that Cooking with a C prepared was a perfect compliment to the retreat. The menu calibrated and gave my body the nutrients and energy it has been deprived of for awhile.
I am eager to attend more of these retreats as I continue my own journey of self discovery. I have booked a one on one past-life regression with Petey to continue my soul work! I give this experience a 10 star rating!!”
I give this experience a 10 star rating!!
"Petey has a touch of magic in her aura, her voice and the environment she creates, all pooling together to make such a healing and transformative experience. Kundalini? After years of practicing other branches of yoga, I believe I’ve found my ideal. It’s the perfect intersection where asana yoga meets meditation. And Petey, I can tell, with her bright and beautiful charisma and extensive knowledge is the perfect guiding hand to explore the magnificent inner world of You.”

“I have know Petey for many years. I have found that working with her both privately and in her workshops has helped on my journey of self-discovery and healing. The Kundalini yoga is very different from other yoga I have done and opens your mind and body to spiritual awareness on a higher plane. The meditations are wonderful and insightful. If you want to take a journey of self-discovery and healing, Petey is a wonderful guide.”

“Petey, I certainly did enjoy your workshop. The three hours felt like one hour! I’m still feeling the wonderful effects. Even though I’m very busy, I’m feeling relaxed & fairly centered. I’m usually running in circles about now when getting ready for a trip but not this time. All is flowing smoothly! A few deep breaths & a bit of quiet time & I’m calm & focused!”
I’m still feeling the wonderful effects
“Meeting my spirit guide AND talking to my soul was beyond words. I will never feel alone again! Petey has a magical way of deepening my practice in meditation to the point where being in my 6th and 7th chakra just occurs without any work.
“Petey is masterful at allowing us to truly experience what Kundalini yoga is all about while giving us the science behind it. My conscious and my subconscious mind are so very satisfied with this workshop. I wish it had been all-day, and I will definitely be at the next one!”
Meeting my spirit guide AND talking to my soul was beyond words
“The Honoring The Light Within group was truly a gift to me. The experience gained in regards to meditation, yoga, soul lessons, and connecting with other like minded souls has expanded my life in ways I didn’t think was possible. Being around others who are walking a spiritual path and embracing their journey by taking steps to ‘figure it out’ was the highlight of my time there. The energy in the room each session was exhilarating. The knowledge I gained from Petey through her guided meditations and discussions uplifted me. I continue to use the techniques taught in supplement to my daily routine and feel that they are now irreplaceable. Taking a pilgrimage through my past lives and other selves, meeting my spirit guide, and cleansing emotional blockages are just a few out of the many eye-opening experiences I encountered in this class. A new hope has been planted inside me, and “Honoring The Light Within” is what gave me that extra push to sincerely start spreading my light to others.”

“What a wonderful experience I had being a part of the “Honoring The Light Within” summer group! With such a variety of ages, personalities, and experiences, I left each session with a broader understanding, deeper intuition, a more compassionate heart, and a very clear and focused mind. As a small business owner in my thirties, taking the time every week to deepen my meditation practice and explore more personal resolve has rejuvenated and uplifted my spirit. I was able to come to peace with a few ‘pending matters’ and let go of some feelings that were preventing my light from shining to my fullest potential. Since there is always more work to do, I am looking forward to future sessions with Petey Silveria and further simplifying the flow of my life.”

“If you are interested in a deep dose of understanding how your mind, body, and spirit can work together to help you become all you are meant to be, you’ve come to the right place. Working with Petey has had a profound, positive impact on my life. Through this amazing class and private therapy sessions she has been a gentle guiding light, leading me from the darkness of self-doubt, guilt, judgment and painful family relationships to a place of understanding, acceptance and thoughtful communication. Wow is right!”
Wow is right!
“I find that I have been energized to get busy writing and researching for my book. This was one of the lovely benefits of your class. I feel more at peace and much more clear. Truly, it feels good to get back to opening up my intuition and feeling more in touch with Spirit.”
Ruly, it feels Ruly, It Feels Good to Get Back to Opening Up My Intuition and Feeling More in Touch With Spirit.good to get back to opening up my intuition and feeling more in touch with Spirit.
“Having recently completed the “Honoring the Light Within” series of classes with Petey I can honestly say that I LOVED it. The format and integration of each class was exactly what I needed and wanted. Each class began with gentle yoga, breath work and a guided meditation. We then began the particular lesson which included class discussion and ended with another guided meditation relevent to the evening’s topic. Petey has a wealth of knowledge, is well prepared and enthusiastic. Each topic was informative and enlightening. My favorite classes were “Soul Lessons” and “Past Life Regression”. I look forward to continuing with the next series of classes.”
I can honestly say that I LOVED it.
“Petey’s class has been an awakening for me! If you are on a journey to better understand your spiritual capabilities and expand your spiritual side, this series of classes will not let you down. Relaxation exercises and guided meditations are part of each class, with a particular theme each week. I find myself looking forward to each week. I didn’t want the series to end!”
I Find Myself Looking Forward to Each Week
“Figuring out how to deal with my issues of not being quite so happy-go-lucky all the time drew me to Petey. She helped me through the roughest of times & gave me the tools to move forward. During our sessions, she mentioned Past Life Regression & it really peaked my interest. Life gets busy & I didn’t pursue the process until I received an email that Petey was holding a group session that included several topics that I wanted to explore – meditation, dream interpretation, past life regression and soul lessons. Even though I found a way to deal with everything, I still felt like something was missing. I thought the classes might be the perfect start to filling that void, helping to deal with unresolved martyr/victim feelings & setting me on a path to finding answers. As each class passes, the meditations, the class work, the soul work, the comradery & support from my classmates make me want to go farther. I want to do a personal past life regression to get the one on one answers and guidance, but I love listening to the others & sharing my experiences. The stories of past lives amaze me, the connections between lives, past & present, the patterns that repeat, etc. While I have learned only a small part of my past life, it’s an exciting part. After having many rough past lives, I chose to stay in between lifetimes before this life until I was ready to move forward. This is just the beginning of my journey to finding out what happened in my past lives to cause my hesitation in moving forward; and who knows, maybe to help me better move forward in this life back to the happy-go-lucky me. Thank you, Petey, for guiding me on this journey.”
This is Just the Beginning of My Journey

“I came into this class with a zest to learn how to advance my soul. I always thought that I had hidden talents and even extra spiritual abilities, however, no book or source has given me as much information as I learned in these 6 classes. By God’s grace, I came upon Petey’s website and learned about her upcoming classes. I waited in eager excitement for weeks for the class to begin. From the onset, everything I hoped to accomplish and learn were satisfied well beyond what I had expected. The meditation exercises allowed me to go deep into the theta level to discover messages unknown to my waking mind. Especially rewarding was meeting my spiritual guide and meeting my own Soul. Through these very profound sessions I was able to discover my life lessons and to see my truly beautiful Soul. The vision and the messages obtained from these sessions had left an imprint in my mind and a purpose of the person I want to become. If you are interested in getting closer to God and to learn your real purpose in life, this is a class that will forever change you. I couldn’t recommend it more. It is a true awakening!”

“To meditate effectively, you need to be in an atmosphere of peace and trust. Petey sets that mood and helps you on your journey, wherever it may take you. That sense of peace and trust enabled me to let in and accept what was sent to me. It was very interesting and enabling. Petey’s classes are interesting, informative and most importantly to me, an assistance with my journey in this lifetime. Today, I would not be as evolved as I hope I am, without the work I have done, both in individual therapy and group class, with Petey.”
Petey Sets That Mood and Helps You on Your Journey, Wherever It May Take You
