Heart centered counseling provides compassion, understanding and experience. With gentle guidance, light can come to us in an expansive process of renewal for mind, body and spirit. In my practice Gestalt psychology and body- mind- energetic therapies are helpful. Gestalt Therapy can be considered an open, dialogue based sharing. This sharing is non- judgemental and holistic... I'm interested in helping you to discover what rings true for you... So one can live a more authentic life. With increasing awareness, good things for each person can emerge. In addition to my M.Ed. in Psychology in Education from the University of Pittsburgh, I hold a certification in Gestalt Therapy from the Gestalt Institute of Pittsburgh.
Prior to full-time counseling, I spent many years working with children, adolescents and their families as a school counselor and counseling adults in certificate programs. My experience over the years is that with willingness and gentle openness, the possibility of renewed understanding and improvement exists for most situations.. My spiritual orientation incorporates Christianity, Eastern philosophies and mindfulness.
