Psychotherapeutic Coaching & Wellness for Women
"The Calm Clinic"
{Recovery and healing} is an ever-changing process that is continually illuminating the way we understand the body, psyche and soul. It takes ongoing exploration and creativity to properly address it. At just $2 a month, membership is almost free but- packs value. (there are two more levels)

{{NEWS}} Launch Celebration Gift If you sign up soon, you'll be sent an original haiku healing art postcard print. This will be sent to everyone who signs up, regardless of level, via snail mail. A small but meaningful "thank you" for your support! 

Women experience unique transitions, experiences and situations, unique to men.
Because my three decades of experience has been primarily with women, it is only ethical to address women only, and because of the sensitive topics, it's only fair to provide a safe space. 

Lost love, betrayal, trauma, crisis, life transitions, anxiety and being at any emotional crossroad, can all be overwhelming and the help, downright stuffy, but it doesn't have to be.
 

How we'll work together

I create all of your themes through my DOSE method™, steeped in transpersonal psychology, a subspecialty and holistic approach, in which we initiate dopamine, oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins- the quad of happiness, when in balance.
Out of balance, we can suffer physically, emotionally and energetically. While you won't feel the structure and it will feel like an enjoyable process, there will themes, growth and I'll be tracking progress as well. For the 1:1 clients, you'll have a therapeutic coaching experience and we can work on your struggles more deeply, in confidence and privacy.

Examples of support:

  • Trauma and Recovery Discussion
  • Livestream Q/A
  • Relaxations & Hypnotherapy
  • Activity Programs for physical wellness
  • Themed Prompts
  • Creativity/Art/Poetry
  • Yoga/Pilates/Walk Programs
  • Book Studies
  • Outreach & Clubs
  • and more

Do you have to be creative or talented?


The short answer.
No. 

The long answer.
Not at all; creativity is not about talent, in fact, if you are talented, you might need to reframe a bit. This is about using art as an exploratory space to extract, process and self-heal. 


Do you have to be in stress- can't I join for pure enjoyment? 

No & Yes. 
You will obviously benefit if you are stressed, because this is a haven for self-healing, but if you want to just enrich yourself while letting the creative juices flow, you will find that here as well.


Why Patreon?

I've worked for three decades in wellness-wellbeing.. and across the span of those thirty years, I've encountered more people who were unable to afford support. Many also had to juggle kids, work, traffic, health, etc.. just to get to an appointment- a battle on a weekly basis for them. I don't feel that life should be that hard when we have technology to support us.
I wanted to create a space, regardless of your means, to allow those on a tight budget, to get a more intimate support than my Youtube channel offers.
YouTube is great - don't get me wrong(see paragraph below) - and I'm still creating videos there. However, you can't get the intimacy there that this offers, and it will allow me to use many strategies I've used in office, right here,  with greater flexibility.


Why not keep it going with YouTube only?

My videos are not the type that go "viral". I'm not entertaining anyone, not doing slapstick or high risk behaviors. In fact, my content is sometimes not advertiser friendly, because of the sensitive nature of the topics... so, I'm not looking to be a YouTube sensation, I'm looking to earn a living while giving back. In order to that, I needed to expand my offerings in a way that was positive and also considerate for my viewers and audience, and not gouge them financially! *ps on that, it helps if you subscribe there as well! 

What your support means

1.The obvious, is that you get a very nominal fee membership that is 100% developed for your emotional well-being and happiness. (so there's that!)
But additionally, it means a lot to me because it helps me to create video content that helps people free of charge to them. Right now, I have almost 100,000 watch hours logged from others who have been able to consume free content. That means so much to me, to be able to provide that. 

2. It also allows me to upgrade my tech studio(for starters, I need better lighting and a new microphone), which is known in my house as "the side door room", a room that has served as my children's playroom, my therapy private practice office and now, studio. 

3. Lastly, I didn't want this to be just about you and me; so we are helping to feed children in hunger; because I really don't know a stress deeper than not getting your basic needs met.. and if we can prevent suffering, let's do that! When you purchase a membership, each month you feed ten children. That sounds lofty, but it's true... I have teamed with an organization that provides the foundation so that each dollar is invested and delegated to create maximum impact. This warms my soul to be able to do! 

Goals
I work hard to provide the context and foundation for interpreting and relaying what's going on emotionally and chemically, through a deeper but enjoyable discussion surrounding transpersonal psychology. 

This is the goal of my work: to promote strategies for increasing happiness, wellbeing, and a better quality of life. 

From my early days in journalism and the creative arts, to my current work in creating a gentle path through trauma to blissful resilience, my goals have always been the same.

  1. To provide free and nearly-free experiences to as many people as possible.
  2. To initiate a movement of emotional warriors; where the community and I can create valuable, soul and psyche transformation in as many people who may be struggling as possible. 
  3. A grassroots effort, a reflection revolution, for the greater good. 
My goals for you are to create an almost-free but highly-valuable experience that taps into your full self, and makes each day a bit better. Overcoming stress, anxiety, the past... tapping into love, strength, forgiving and releasing unwanted stress; better yet - turning it into vitality. Plus, creative enjoyment!
