The human spirit is resilient. It awaits opportunities to shine, regardless of past conditioning.


suffering is optional

You have a right to be free of mental anguish. UnTherapy can help you get  there.

The most empowering question you can ask yourself when your mind is in a spin cycle and you can’t seem to get out of it is, “How would I prefer to be experiencing this part of my life right now?”  

I trademarked UnTherapy as a conscious counseling system to help clients focus on existential issues that relate to fear of death.  

UnTherapy will help you to turn away from dysfunctional behavior patterns and regenerate a sense of calm. Regardless of how traumatic your past may have been or how challenging your present situation might be, you have developed character traits during those tough times that can help you through the most difficult adversities.  As I retired from my private practice in 2016 and no longer see private clients, you might enjoy reading my book: UnTherapy: A Positive Psychology for Enlightened Living.

 

SHRINK OR SHAMAN?  How do you know whether you should see a counselor, a therapist, a psychologist or a psychiatrist?  

If you are in need of medication, if you believe that you might be clinically depressed, or if you suffer from a mental illness, traditional therapy with a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist would better meet your needs.  But if you are an otherwise functional adult who needs some help to get clear, wellness counseling or life coaching can be a viable alternative.           

  

   Telephone and online counseling can be a convenient alternative if you are prefer the convenience of having your counseling in the seclusion of your own home or office.  The cost is usually the same as "in person" counseling. I retired in 2018, however, so no longer provide coaching or counseling. You might consider contacting one of my graduates on the Alumni page of the Women's Leadership Institute for Conscious Coaching if you want one-on-one work.

 

For those needing help handling the pain and fears of transition, I served as a hospice counselor who helped patients through their health crises so they could face death with courage and clarity. The objective was to help patients to maintain their quality of life despite their diagnosis. I provided both practical services to help patients "get your affairs in order" as well as spiritual counsel -free of charge.
