Practicing Mindfulness, Calming when coping with Anxiety, Distress

When we're having a difficult or challenging time, one of the nicest things to find is that  you can center yourself and find calm, a sense of security and serenity.... and strength.

Sometimes we might find this difficult.  Or perhaps we've been fraught with anxiety for a long time and we can barely remember this experience!   This is why it is something that we can benefit from practising regularly.  Practicing reaching into this deep well and resource helps us know how to find our way there in more challenging and stressful times --- going there becomes a well worn groove, that we can then, just slide into as needed.

Online Therapy, Coaching and Consultation












Online therapy, coaching, counseling or consultation
can be a wonderful support for the busy person who often doesn't have time to take several hours out of the day for therapy and the travel to and from offices mid day.
Whether you are feeling sad, anxious, depressed, confused, frustrated or somehow "stuck" in some aspect of your life, it's never too late (or too early) to get some help...

If you don't live within a feasible traveling distance of Ann Arbor and/or it's just "too hard" to reorganize your schedule to find the time for a face-to-face consultation,  working with a therapist via telephone and/or online has obvious advantages:

new year transitions
We're really blessed. Yes things seem to be getting tougher in many ways.  But here in Michigan we have the best of all worlds.  While other parts of the world and our country even, have been beset with horrible events with calamitous weather, Michigan remains overall mild in climate and with few
problems such as the horrible fires in the west, impacts from major drought or flooding, hurricanes & mega storms.  Michigan also has ample sources of fresh water being surrounded by our beautiful Great Lakes.
