The Power of Intimacy in a Pandemic

The power of connection in challenging times. Doing what comes naturally protects us from paralyzing fear.

Thich Nhat Hanh gems

Those who go to therapy " are not people who are crazy" but rather those who have the maturity to face, learn about, and take charge of their emotions.

This is resilience... one of the greatest things I endeavor to teach my clients about themselves.

Some food for thought...

It is now complete! In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a Reiki Master. I had my first "distance , virtual reiki session " here in my new office Saturday. I am excited about new beginnings! If you need some stress reduction, would like some deep relaxation, and /or healing, I am offering virtual distant reiki sessions as a special offering during this crisis, at a very discounted rate. I have just a few spots left on my calander. If you would like a session please PM me for details.

The new office is almost complete and open for business. I am still offering virtual sessions and hope to see you in person soon, as restrictions lift and social distancing is eased.

Prescription during quarantine and afterwards.

A trauma psychologist weighs in on the risks of 'motivational' pressure during quarantine

A great read in these times. "As a trauma psychologist, I am utterly utterly horrified, enraged, and bewildered about how people can believe and spread this phrase in good conscience."

[03/18/20]   I am now trained and set up for telehealth. This means I am able to offer video counseling sessions convenient from your home. Please PM or call to find out about video counseling and how you can receive therapy in the comfort of your home, (when appropriate).


"Like having a therapist, coach, and best friend. Just wonderful. Thank you!" ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ MPBinCLT.
