ITs been a while since I have written . The last month or so has been a real struggle , after the death of Aunt Edris , my father in law Grady whom is 76 had to be hospitalized due to 3 blockages in his heart & had to have 3 stints put in to his heart . Poor man spent three days in the hospital , my mother In law bless her heart was there all the way , poor woman exhausted her self making sure he got everything he needed , this of course was very stressful because I am very close with my mother in law & my father in law . I am happy to state that my father is now home & is now recovering from his surgery & looks like he will be with us for quite some time ( Thank god) IN other news my I have been having break through anxiety despite being on the Lexapro 10 MG , I had upped the Lexapro taking 10 MG at night & taking 10 MG in morning , I"m also still taking the topamax , which my doctor has decreased down to 75 MG , yet my miagraines were comming back , I was feeling horrible & unbalanced , so I called my doctor's office back & told them what was going on . THe problem that I was having , is that when my Lexapro 10 MG was wearing off in the morning my anxiet was comming right back , so I would take 10 MG in the morning , that was helping a little bit but come mid after noon around 1-2,3 the 10 MG of Lexapro would wear off was again & I was right back to having anxiety & right back to feeling horrible . Since I suffer from ADD , my ADD & my Anxiety go together , so when my anxiety is high my butts in & there for I don't focus very well , on simple tasks like grocery shopping which is something I like . My anxiety makes not want to enjoy things that I like such as blogging , scapbooking . I know have read that a lot of ADD adults suffer with Anxiety . The problem is we don't know how to regulate our emotions & when we get stressed out , we get anxious . Truth of the matter is I have dealt with a lot mentally & emotionally . THis past Thuresday I went back to the doctor & saw the P.A , had a great hour talk with her , touched on everything that has been going on , especially my sleep & the fact that I am waking 2-3 times a night & not sleeping all the way through the night & then waking up tired .I expressed to her that I'm not depressed & that I had anxiety as a kid & now with my ADD , its come right back full force . She increased my Lexapro to 20 MG , put me on a new medication called Buspirone HCL 5 MG of a night & 5 MG of a morning , I'am working on tappering off the Topamax , sure if its working for my Migraines or if the Migraines are due to my anxiety . Since my Lexapro has been increased I feel much better & the with the Buspirone 5 Mg at night & 5 mg in morning , this anxiety medication combination definately has me feeling more blanced & I'm definately more human again & happier ..

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
I am a certified coach, Kellogg Executive Scholar in leadership, materials scientist, and Chopra Center certified instructor in Primordial Sound Meditation. And, I don’t quite fit the mold. I see invisible things. As an experimental materials scientist, I studied delicate nanometer structures using high-resolution electron beams. Often, that meant balancing power and sensitivity while patiently retaining focus for an extensive period to notice the subtle unfolding of something new - before it turned visible to anyone else. As a coach, I bring the same optimism, joy, and discipline of discovery when we shine the light on invisible things that a client is looking to bring into focus in a coaching session. I enjoy witnessing my clients’ wonder and awe as they encounter new elements of self for the first time. I listen to the sixth sense. I have cultivated systems thinking in my roles as an engineer and business leader, and I pay close attention to patterns, trends, and interdependencies. I found synchronicity and a sense of timing to hold the most significant power among all variables. In coaching, we directly experience the significance and power of moments big and small as we expand our wisdom to include strategic intuition and a sense of timing. Not all moments may hold equal leverage, but each one is indispensable as they combine to form a unique symphony of our lives. I trust the process and the resourcefulness of our creativity. Growing up in the former Yugoslavia during the civil war and disintegration of the country, I directly witnessed the complexity, strain, and tremendous resilience of the human spirit. Through those experiences, I gained a humbling appreciation for the regenerative powers of hope, curiosity, and love amid uncertainty and sustained collective trauma. In my coaching sessions, I aspire to provide unconditional positive regard, radical acceptance, and full presence for my clients who navigate the deep and cloudy waters of personal transformation.

Let’s face it, life isn’t easy, and happiness isn’t guaranteed. But who has time to fix any form of trauma during today’s hustle and bustle? I assure you that I do, and I am here to do just that. As a licensed professional, I acknowledge that each and every one of us are complex human beings with lives that are equally, if not more, complex. Does therapy have to be complicated too? I wager no. For no is a necessary magic. Your quality of life is essential and priceless.

My approach to counseling is that each individual has the potential within them to accomplish anything. My job is to help you realize that potential and to make peace with the issues that you face. Notice I never said anything about “getting over” what you have going on, because I believe that there are some things that make that impossible. But, I believe that if you are willing to work with me to achieve your goals, you can achieve the recovery you truly want My journey to the present day has been unconventional to say the least. I’ve worked in the mental health field since graduating with my Master’s Degree in 2007. I’ve worked with many different populations in many different settings. Most recently I have been working with clients who desired to end their lives, or who were too sick to go about their daily lives. I’ve also supervised others, taught at a college level, and made presentations to other professionals. In the real world, I’ve worked in the medical field, customer service, and I’ve owned my own business. I believe this varied experience allows me to be more emphatic as well as take a more common sense approach to treatment. I invite you to take a step toward something difficult and do something that is good for you. You always have the opportunity to go back to the way things were; that isn’t challenging in the least.
