|The experience I have under my belt now,
could fill books, very wonderful books full of the heart and spirit of countless people
who have shared their deepest issues and wounds with me, people who have trusted me to
walk with them on their healing journeys towards wholeness, whether from relationship
wounds, anxiety, depression, or traumatic and overwhelming abuse and stress. My clients
range from people who have little background in spirituality and holistic healing to those
who are very steeped in these more subtle awarenesses and capacities. Some, because more
traditional counseling hadnt helped, have been more open to a holistic orientation.
Others have been happy to find a therapist who is so deeply comfortable working at
energetic levels. They have all honored me with the beauty of their souls. Professional History
I have been a therapist now for over 27 years and have been an Energy Psychologist for almost 10 years. My beginnings were in womens issues and eating disorders at Oberlin College. I have worked in community mental health and at a psychiatric in-patient facility, giving me a deep understanding of the effects of emotional pain. My private practice began in 1990 before I completed my PhD in Counseling and Human Development with a minor in Clinical Psychology. In 1999, I opened my first office in Kent--Holistic Psychological Center-- expanding it into integrative healing arts later that year. Since then I have been offering psychotherapy that is holistic and energetic, while at the same time creating a healing arts center where other alternative healers and healthcare providers could work in a healthy, eco-friendly, mutually supportive and growthful environment. In March of 2008, I downsized my healing arts business and moved the practice to Hudson, Ohio. My focus is now on my therapy practices here and in Chicago (in the early stages of development) as well as in the development of websites and on-line materials and tools for personal empowerment, healing of trauma and releasing enhanced capacity for personal, relational and career success. Over the years, my practice has been based on Gestalt, Existential, Cognitive Behavioral, and Feminist Therapy, interweaving art therapy and interactive guided imagery. Energy modalities have increased the effectiveness and speed of psychological healing as has Holographic Memory Resolution--a form of guided imagery that is tremendously effective in accessing and healing early childhood events contributing to adult unhappiness. Helping a client to remember the highest truth of who they are, to feel the reality of this truth, and to envision and feel themselves living their lives from this highest truth is a very nourishing, encouraging, and motivating practice that clients particularly enjoy.

Additional Professional Information
Most recently, my attentions have turned towards extending my healing practices and skills to the web. I am in the beginning stages of creating a web presence that will provide counseling and coaching services, informational material (webinars, podcasts, books and articles), and a resource clearinghouse. Not only will this extend the reach of those I am able to help heal and manifest their dreams and passion in a joyous life, but I will also be able to offer more services for people local to me.
Watch for exciting developments!
