Individuals and Couples.

I believe that every individual has the capacity for healthy psychological functioning.  My goal in counseling is to assist clients to recognize and connect with their innate health.  When our sense of well-being becomes obscured for a myriad of reasons, we are often unaware of how to get back on track.  I teach my clients about the role of thinking in their lives, the relationship between thought and feeling, and how circumstances are not the determining factor for their reactions and feelings.

We address questions like:

  • Do you notice when you are experiencing a good feeling or sense of well-being?
  • How can you be in touch with your well-being more often?
  • Do you have a choice about what thoughts to focus on and follow or let pass through the mind without giving them attention?
  • What would it look like if you were not anxious/depressed/fearful/reactive?

By exploring such questions, clients gain an awareness of the vast opportunity for new thought to visit them when their minds are not spinning with personal thinking.  This increased awareness can result in an inner shift in their thinking that allows them to tap into a source of wisdom for creating a richer, more rewarding life.  My spiritual perspective gives each client an additional means of support to gain a sense of well-being.

Groups.

            For the past ten years I have been facilitating small groups based on Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way, to rediscover creativity.  These groups have been a very effective adjunct to therapy, and they also stand on their own as a life changing experience for the participants.  Each group is limited to 8 people and runs for about 10 weeks in the spring and fall.  Please contact me for information about the forthcoming schedule.

I welcome the opportunity to work with you!
