About me

Hello!
Welcome! worked as a counselor, social worker, and life coach for more that 20 years. I am currently licensed in the state of Alaska.

I focus my work on what is going with you at the present time, the things you are most concerned about. I work here part-time so I specialize in brief, solution focused therapy and life coaching. Mindful awareness is part of my life and my work. I practice Inner Wisdom hypnotherapy and Reiki.

I enjoy working with people in my state and international clients. I honor differences in culture, gender, religion, race, lifestyles and beliefs.

I live on a remote island in the rain forest of southeast Alaska. I travel several months a year. I love to create things with pen and paper, yarn, beads, and clay. I practice mindfulness meditation and create art journals to record and process my life experience.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with things that are important to you!
Beverly

Beverly is extremely professional, empathetic and intelligent. She clearly knows how to help people understand and overcome her struggles well, and I look forward to continuing therapy with her.

Great at narrowing down key areas to focus on and develop an easy to follow plan to look at a healthy solution to resolving issues or concerns.

I started speaking to Beverly during a difficult period in my life: I was about to turn 30, had just gotten out of a 5 year relationship and was figuring out other parts of life. She was incredibly helpful in figuring out the next part of my life, which I am more equipped to make the most of. She is very attentive and responds promptly (with compassion). She was also helpful in helping me figure out what mistakes I made, and was able to help on a wide variety of issues.

Attentive and kind, Beverly offers realistic solutions. Her proactive approach allows you to focus on the now, gives good counselling and notes all the sessions to facilitate you.
