We are truly living in troubled times, globally and personally. Many of us find ourselves fluctuating between feelings of anxiety and/or depression. At 67 years old, I’ve spent nearly half my life – 35 years – as a Marriage and Family Therapist/Psychotherapist. Adding Hypnotherapy to my practice has been a game changer, and that, along with friends, colleagues, and many clients, I’ve learned ways of managing my thinking and thereby managing my emotions. This is what I do in my private practice and I can help you to do the same.

Serving as a minister and earning a PhD in Counseling Psychology equipped me to care for people in crises. Working with vulnerable children and their families or caregivers, also proved to be a valuable foundation for clinical care. In a medical academic setting, training residents in the use of spirituality and psychology as they cared for their patients, deepened my own understanding of just how complex clinical issues can become. This also increased my understanding of the level of stress healthcare providers and victims themselves experience during illness. This is especially relevant in the present COVID-19 environment.

Understanding and dealing with the effects of your own or someone else's substance use is hard. It helps if you work with some one who has the professional and personal experience to address the issues associated with alcohol or other drug, gambling or codependency struggles. If you think you may have a problem, need a substance use disorder or codependency assessment, have completed treatment and need recovery support I can help. Feelings of isolation, anxiety, sadness, anger, excessive worry or fear related to your own, a family member or friends compulsion with alcohol, drugs or gambling, are common and treatable.

Do you need a space to pause, catch your breath and be heard? You are in a highly functional sort of survival mode. On the outside no one would know how stressed you feel. Your days feel like going through the motions; work, eat, sleep with maybe a little fun and connection on your days off. Where did your sense of peace go? Are you taking care of you? A session with me will explore these areas and provide insight to the shifts you can create.

Life can be challenging. Whether it's loss, change, death of a loved one or uncertainty of life's direction, we all hit roadblocks and obstacles. During those times it's important to be heard. I am here to listen and to inspire hope. I believe in my clients' abilities to change. I nurture their inner strength until they can believe in themselves. Change is powerful. It can be transformational, scary and exciting. When I worked in Palliative Care with patients who were at the end stage of their lives, I was witness to the power of being present. In the quiet presence of acceptance, a deep healing can occur. PLEASE EMAIL FOR CONSULT

Finding a therapist who respects us and remains compassionate is crucial. To have at least one other person who wants to understand us is a basic human need. At times what we feel, do and think do not create a happy life. We may focus on the "negative" and may easily find reasons to feel wretched. We may turn to substance use or other behaviors to cope with discomfort. You and I can discuss your unique situation, what your current behaviors may be doing for you, and explore how to achieve a sense of comfort, wellbeing and happiness. We will nurture your confidence and acknowledge your strengths and wisdom. We all belong here.
