Welcome to Holos Counseling! This therapy practice is a place of professionalism & warmth.
The Greek word ολοσ (holos) means entire or ‘deeply whole.’
I am pleased to offer ONLINE Counseling
with a $40.00 per session fee rate through grant funding.
How I help: In my 20+ years in practice, I have helped people with a wide range of psychological issues. Over the years, however, I have developed several areas of special focus:
First, folks who want their spirituality integrated into their therapy. I have experience & training specific to CLERGY WELLNESS and helping PASTORS sort through the stresses and personal problems that can surface in the course of ministry. I have lived the life of a parish pastor, so I well know both its joys & its strain. Greater emotional maturity always enables greater spiritual maturity. As well, I have helped a number of ministers discern their way through pastoral BURNOUT into clarity, on the other side.
Also in the pastoral field, I have experience in helping MISSIONARIES, both domestic and abroad, and those who were raised as THIRD CULTURE KIDS.
Additionally, I have firsthand experience of the unique pressures of life in Religious (monastic) Orders, and the lives of CHAPLAINS and those in CPE Training. . Healing, restoration, mental peace & balance ARE possible.
- My second specialization is the FIRST RESPONDER Community: Police, EMT’s, Firefighters, Dispatchers, nurses and physicians. We have a number of law enforcement and MILITARY in my family and I know well, and respect, the life you lead. I understand the stresses of training, deployment and separation– Both on the service member and their family.
- Finally, I have a passion for helping those who struggle with CHRONIC ILLNESS, as well as the FOOD ALLERGY COMMUNITY. Being ill, but looking “fine” on the outside, is difficult!
I also offer psychological testing services (including measures of personality, cognitive ability, and leadership style.)
I believe that psychotherapy is about the care of the total person: heart, mind, body, and spirit. As such, it can be a life-enriching process, expanding one’s capacity for self-awareness, and opening one to more meaningful relationships and a more fulfilling life.
