Thich Nhat Hanh
How often does it feel like your bliss or joy is elusive? When you find yourself in relationship patterns that don’t work, where do you turn? What do you do when anxiety or depression haunt you?
Since 1993 I’ve been working with people to help them find their best ways through. In my first career as a Certified Rolfer I used bodywork to help people. Later I studied Psychology and became a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s degree in Community Counseling.
My counseling approach is trauma-informed, mindful, honest and practical, and my basic operating theories for offering counsel are science-based, such as Cognitive Behavioral theory. I’ll provide feedback, advice and ideas, and likely challenge some of your thinking, hopefully offering some considerations about new ways to try things that could be helpful.
A little about me:
Ballet at a young age began a lifelong interest in how the body works, then later, yoga and meditation. The study and practice of the work of Ida Rolf (“Rolfing”) has been one of my greatest influences, and was my first career. Tai chi, Qi Gong, Seiki Jutsu, rowing, swimming…stillness…these are all influences. 🛶
I have a undergrad degree in English Literature with a lifelong interest in writing, especially poetry. I once published an article about friend and teacher Clark Inkanish in a literary journal, another time I won a local award for a poem, Cupcake, a revisioning glance at who God(ess) might be. Writing is a very special thing, a privilege, and maybe even a duty. Highly recommended. 👏🏼
…family, community, ‘ukulele, songs and songcatchers, quarter horses, religion, life coaching, travel, spelling bees, spontaneity, mysticism, philosophy, plant medicine, cranial-sacral therapy, indigenous wisdom, and my dog, Jack… 🐾
Mostly, I have been influenced by the natural world: plants, waters, soil, creatures. The outside world is my church, and my primary teacher. 🌱
Fees for individual counseling sessions are $100.
I will send an invoice via email at the end of our session. This invoice may be paid with PayPal, or with any credit card, including medical savings account cards.
I don’t accept insurance as payment, though you may be able to be reimbursed by your provider. Upon your request, I will be happy to provide the appropriate documents for you to submit to them.
Sessions for couples and other groups are $150.
If so, you are my ideal client! Music plays a specific and unique role in the healing of heart/mind/body. I have a vested interest in music industry professionals at evey level, locally and around the country. In collaboration with the Red Dirt Relief Fund here in Tulsa I work with a great group of folks to meet critical needs in our local music community. Nationally, I provide direct support services to music industry folks and their partners via referral from music non-profits Backline and Sweet Relief.
