Stellar Counseling Services
I provide a unique combination of traditional counseling and non-traditional astrological services. I work primarily with adult individuals and couples and have a special interest in depression and bereavement. I utilize a number of different therapeutic modalities, according to what is most effective with each client. For those who prefer a non-traditional approach, I offer astrology as a counseling tool and need one's birth date, place of birth and exact birth time. Services include personality profiles, relationship charts, annual forecasts, and relocation charts. Consultations are also available for astrological guidance in timing events, decision making and life planning.
Profile and Credentials
I have an M.A. in Rehabilitation Counseling from the University of South Florida. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor and Licensed Clinical Addictions Specialist. I worked as a Vocational Evaluator for the Pinellas Association for Retarded Children in St. Petersburg, FL for 7 years and as a Mental Health Counselor with Family Service Center in Clearwater, FL for 6 years. After studying astrology for 3 years, I became accredited through the American Federal of Astrologers as a Professional Astrologer. I have been in a private practice since 1987 and am a practitioner with Woodfin Wellness in Asheville, NC.
Philosophy and Comments
I adhere to a strict code of professional ethics and maintain client confidentiality. The information you share with me is private and cannot be disclosed to anyone without your consent, however, I am required by law any intent to harm yourself or others, indication of child or elder abuse, or when there is a court order. It is important to me that astrologers be credentialed in order to gain professional recognition and to ensure that clients receive quality services. For those open to astrology, I believe that it can be a wonderful tool for helping people learn more about themselves, their relationships, and life patterns.
