I have thought about and studied how people grow, heal and thrive for most of my life. My involvement in a 12 step group for many years gave me many clues: sharing our stories and challenges in an environment where trust and positive regard are present. I incorporate these two things in my counseling relationships. This help I received in my group was a big motivating factor in wanting to be a counselor. I entered Duquesne University in the nineties and graduated with a Masters in Counseling in 2001. I worked hard under supervision with a professional psychologist to attain the 3600 hours needed for licensure. Many of my clients suffered with depression, traumatic memories, addiction, co-dependency, and poor self esteem. Some were people struggling with homelessness. As I grew as a counselor, I began to realize that really powerful outcomes were present in my clients as they first dealt with their issues, and then began to consider what they might be called to do with their lives. I decided to attend seminary in 2005, and that training has provided a whole other level of care and training. I have worked for almost 20 years with individuals who were referred to me by Focus on the Family, New Life, and several Episcopal and Anglican Church leaders as well as local physicians. I’ve been fortunate to witness many wonderful results.

Rev Hughes is the Alchemist. I feel so much change in my life after a couple of sessions I have done with her. I have never felt so much self confidence and better self efficacy in my life. She made me look at myself in a new light. I am so grateful to her. God bless her and may she enlighten other lives around her.
