As a lifelong educator and meditator I approach counseling from two perspectives: reflection and learning.
When we pause and reflect on the situation that is problematic, we begin to learn and make informed decisions about how to move forward in our lives, relationships, and the presenting situation.
We have the capacity to make changes in our thinking and behaviors that will improve the quality of our lives and our "happiness quotient."
Assisting others in setting and obtaining measurable goals in their lives and relationships that produce a more satisfactory and sustainable balance in life.

I will try to make the counseling affordable and offer some discounts.
Since my youth I have had an interest in the value of open communication and self-reflection and how those qualities can impact positive change in self and others.
I noticed that many people in my family and life were not able to self-reflect or communicate honestly with themselves and others. I witnessed the pain, confusion, and chaos that it caused.
I pursued my Master's in Educational Psychology to learn the skills necessary to actualize the ability to benefit others through education and counseling.
I have helped couples, families, individuals, teens and children in my practice.
I also have experience with successful grief, trauma, and addictions counseling.
My first novel Out of Control by Kate Lion (my pen name) was published. It is a fictional account of a family in crisis over a family member's addiction. There are many self-help resources embedded in the narrative. I call this type of writing "biblio-therapeutic literature."
The book has begun to receive positive reviews. It is available on Amazon.
