My Approach to Helping

After forty years of working with others in the helping professions (counselors, clergy, first responders, nurses and nurse-practitioners, physicians, social workers, teachers), I recognize the importance of addressing issues created by professional isolation, 'burnout' or compassion fatigue, and accumulated secondary trauma. This is especially true for those in vocations who generously serve their communities, placing the needs of others who are troubled or hurting ahead of their own over extended periods of time. The effects of chronic stress that result from work-life imbalance can have significant effects on physical and emotional health, family life, and relationships; as a result, estrangement from self and others can occur. Using a holistic orientation that encompasses mind, body, spirit, and heart (relationships), together we explore ways to reestablish better personal boundaries, priorities as well as perspective. I work from a collaborative, strengths-based approach that is tailored to the individual, using cognitive-behavioral therapy, family systems, mindfulness and/or psychodynamic psychotherapy techniques. The practice of pastoral counseling incorporates spirituality with the psychological, if a person is so inclined. This added dimension of therapy can open up new possibilities for forgiveness, healing and reconciliation: grace.

More Info About My Practice

My fees are competitive; I work with some insurance companies directly and under certain circumstances, offer discounted fees. Pastoral counseling must be affordable and accessible, especially to those in the helping professions.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Professional burnout or compassion fatigue; work-life balance; trauma recovery; grief & loss; chronic or life threatening illness; spiritual inquiry and integration, vocational discernment.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Through listening, reflection and collaboration, pastoral counseling can renew a sense of self, the importance of self-care in the midst of serving others, the necessity of work-life balance that includes intentional solitude as well as meaningful times with family and friends, to restore life energy. Counseling explores personal or professional obstacles that confuse, overwhelm or diminish effectiveness. Counseling offers insights and shared understanding in order to make changes that lead to greater personal freedom, life satisfaction, and health. It requires courage to grow towards the fullness of who we are created to be.
