Getting your life back down to Earth -

Getting one's life grounded is important for mental, emotional and physical wellbeing!  Our lives and our culture have often taken us far adrift.  But promising new developments are charting new ways back to old territory. 

Some of the distress and anxiety that underlies our lives is from recognizing on some level that we've been charting lifestyles that are unsustainable.

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:

Healthy living means moving toward sustainable lifestyles


While we go about our busy lives, living like busy bees, concerned with managing our livelihoods, nurturing family and friends, participating in our community, paying our bills and working toward a good future, all of which feel more challenging these days ~  We find the added challenge of living in a time when all of us, one way  or another, are exposed to messages that suggest that from many angles our world is in jeopardy.  Without much discussion or support, we're left to  cope with and absorb the obvious emotional and psychological impacts of this understanding.

Support Groups

Finding a good support group is a great way to become more focused and centered as the amount of quality support you have in your life greatly affects your balance and happiness.   Support groups are an inexpensive way of making more connections and learning; also a great way to work on becoming your best self, getting some relief from feeling disconnected, and the symptoms this bring ~ and yet much less expensive than individual therapy.

Here are some of the support groups I'm currently offering.
