The keys to the success of my work are: empowering you with a practical and success oriented foundation that supports you in achieving the goals that are important to you; discovering vast inner and outer resources; gaining hope, self-confidence, and courage; learning to be attentive to the situations and thoughts that trigger your upsets; guiding you in utilizing interventions, mindfulness practices, and nutritional information that significantly reduce your stress, help you relax, gain composure, self-awareness, and improve your health; cultivating compassion and forgiveness for yourself and others; and experiencing greater awareness, faith, integrity, self-love, and inner peace.
The modalities I use include: Transpersonal Psychology, referred to as ‘Spiritual Psychology’, that brings balance to your mind, body, emotions, and spirit. Cognitive Psychology to assist in identifying the thoughts and beliefs that keep you stuck. Solution Focused Counseling and Coaching that support you in identifying behavior that you want to change, creating successful solutions, prioritizing your lifestyle, and achieving your goals. Imagery & Self-Hypnosis to improve your health, let go of fear, anxiety, and create the future you envision. Nutrition Assessment to find out how your current diet and habits are impacting your health and wellness.
A primary focus in the counseling work is on dreams; the dreams that disturb you and the dreams that inspire you! Together we explore the dreams you have during the night; the daydreams you have as you let your imagination take flight; the dream you had long ago about how you wanted your life to unfold.
My multi-faceted approach to Counseling will help you achieve more inner harmony by letting go of the things that sabotage you and result in displeasure, and instead doing the things, developing the skills, expressing the talents and gifts, and utilizing the mind-set that will lead to a more pleasurable and successful life.
I also use my two self-help books in my counseling work, Love & be Loved: 8 Steps to Creating Intimacy & Finding the Love You Want; Returning to the Land of Oz: Finding Hope, Love, & Courage on Your Yellow Brick Road.
You can choose to work with me by phone and ZOOM, in the comfort and convenience of your home or in my office.
I work with individuals, couples, and groups. In the 1st session we explore and clarify why you are seeking counseling and identify your goals. I will work within your budget.
