Thank you for your interest in my practice. You may want to visit some of these other sources of information about my work:
AAMFT Approved Supervisor
I offer individual and dyad supervision (1-2 hours) for LAMFT post-grad working toward licensure, and am a MBBHT Approved Supervisor for LPC/LPCC students seeking individual supervision from a systemic, relational perspective.
I view supervision as a personal and professional conversation in which we all grow through case consultation, focus on our “selves as therapists,” and high professional ethics. Times are flexible and by mutual agreement. Cost: $40/hour/dyad, $80/hour/individual.
Is anxiety ruining your daily life? Of all the tools available for decreasing worry, meditation is perhaps the most important. It is the simple but powerful practice of learning to quiet the mind by focusing on just one thing, normally the breath. The phone and web application Calm is probably the most flexible, beautiful and customized tool to learn and practice this powerful mental skill I’ve used.
Looking for a website filled with solid information about psychology and common emotional issues? PsychCentral is a great, professionally written site for all things of the mind and emotions. Join for free and be part of online discussion forums.
HeartMath “Inner Coherence” :
There are three major nerve centers of the body: along with the brain, the heart and the digestive systems each have their own rhythmic electrical impulses that effect our bodies. The HearthMathInstitute research conducted over the last 20 years has led to amazing, easily learned and applied self-help techniques to bring a stressed heart and mind into coherence. I use the methods myself, and share them with my clients. We can learn to live a more balanced inner life!
By using guided imagery to calm the mind and relax the body, we can have a significant impact on the way we experience our physical and emotional health. Health Journeys is the website of Belleruth Naparstek, the national expert on guided imagery practice. Most of her recordings are now available as MP3 downloads.
A third of our lives are spent asleep. Or so we say. Many of us have difficulty getting to sleep, staying asleep, returning to sleep after waking, or have other sleep issues related to breathing, pain, teeth grinding or nightmares. Tuck.com is an online resource center of information, research and advocacy for improving our sleeping lives. Log on and learn how improving your sleep can improve your overall mental and physical health.
Prayer on the Web:
Sacred Space invites visitors to common prayer. Daily refections, biblical readings and prayer requests from all over the world are part of this spiritual community. It is a beautiful, relaxing way to take time for prayer while at your computer.
Spirituality and Practice is a rich resource for all who seek to deepen the way they live out their faith. This website is fascinating to explore.
Be Constantly Inspired:
Connect to some of the best media coverage of belief, values and meaning on public radio and the internet, On Being.
You Are Not Alone:
I’m inspired by human courage and curiosity. One of the most important things we learn in therapy is that our private suffering — the stuff about ourselves we think no one else could understand — is not so odd or unique as we feared. PostSecret is a wonderful blog art project reminding us that we share so much as human beings, perhaps our unspoken secrets most of all.
Divorce and Co-Parenting:
Couples who are planning to divorce must take special care with their children throughout the process. The Custody Exchange has created a very helpful guide to help you parent well through this difficult change in the family.
