How may I help you?
So many people find it difficult to ask for help. Some feel they are bothering others, some feel others won’t understand. Some feel their needs won’t be met so why bother. None of this may be true. We are not meant to live in isolation. We need one another and it is incredibly fulfilling to help someone with the unique tools and experience that we have.
Welcome! I’m glad you’ve made the decision to visit my site. I have been involved in helping individuals since 1998, when I launched my first spiritually based business called Ways of Gentle Strength, LLC. I saw individual clients for holistic healing sessions and taught many holistic and spiritually based classes around Connecticut and Massachusetts, many of which I continue to offer.
I have since gone on to greatly enhance my abilities and tool bag to help individuals by completing my Masters in Pastoral Counseling, which is a traditional mental health counseling degree with an emphasis on spirituality. As a nationally certified Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with a private practice in the Collinsville section of Canton, I see individuals and couples who are seeking assistance. While my LPC affords me the opportunity to work with a full range of clients, I am particularly effective with the following areas:
Grief and Loss
Separation and Divorce
Loss of Self
Anger and Frustration
Dark Nights of the Soul
Psychospiritual Causation of Illness
I also have a Certificate in Spirituality from St. Joseph College (West Hartford, CT) and a Certificate in Clinical Pastoral Counseling from St. Francis Academy (St. Francis Hospital, Hartford, CT).
As a certified debriefer, I use my CISM (Critical Incident Stress Management) training to work with individuals or groups to debrief after a traumatic incident. When one experiences trauma, the two hemispheres of the brain cease to effectively communicate with one another. CISM re-establishes that connection. I also have FEMA certifications and am part of Connecticut’s Behavioral Health Crisis Team.
I also offer a variety of holistic services, which are not covered by insurance, but can be extremely effective in rebalancing the body, mind, spirit, and soul connection.
In 2009, I appeared on the Better Connecticut show on WFSB-TV with Scot Haney and Kara Sundlun on two occasions – once with my magazine, The Door Opener Magazine, and the second time doing dream interpretation with Scot Haney. I have also guest appeared on other television and radio programs featuring holistic health and spirituality.
Please browse my site to see how I can be of assistance to you. Do not hesitate to contact me via email or phone during business hours (Mon – Fri, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.) if you have any questions I can help with.
