Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I was always led to the introspection of the mind to the cause and effect of family, and other relationships, on mental health. My degrees in psychology allowed me to truly "Be here now". The ability to actually be present at every moment, with every word a client relates, is a true gift. This is a gift for both the client and the clinician; to really quiet the mind for the clinician and be open to hear what is really being expressed by the client. Psychology is my true calling, my gift,my passion. Everyone needs to briefly uncover eepressed, or hidden, perceptions from our past, and recognize how these memories block us living a balanced life in the present. We then need to "learn" how to rid our mind, our body, of the need to hold on to old, unhealthy patterns. I am excited and positive with every client I have the privilege of seeing. I can see the potential for true health in every individual. I am comfortable working with all genders, all ages, and with all problems and questions. We all need to talk. Talking to an impartial person, who has no judgment or motive, but just wants to listen to you, can be a key to your living the life you were meant to live. It is my joy and privilege to be able to listen to you

About My Practice

Office Hours
7 Days - 9:00 am to 9:00 pm
Services
I offer caring, non-judgmental counseling to individuals of all ages, couples, and families. I offer many different groups for personal growth and understanding. Motivational Recovery is a drink choice program I founded. This 6 wk program offers problem drinkers the choice of drink moderation. My emphasis is psychodynamic theory to get to the underlying cause, the real issue(s) blocking us from living in our full potential, from really living in happiness, with healthy relationships. I also work with an exceptional holistic counselor (Ally Tracy, MA) who offers intuitive counseling, life coaching, groups and chakra and creative arts therapies.
