Helen's Light

I get to work with people that want to grow, change, and are willing to work to make that happen. Part of what I do is to help people deal with the challenges that come with mental health issues. It's hard when, at times, we don't even feel like getting out of bed. You are not alone. How about when we feel like there is no reason to go to work on any given day? It's hard to care when you feel like life is too challenging. You are not alone. You don't have to deal with this all on your own. While I do not do therapy, we work on what happens as you go through therapy to make that process a bit easier. It is sometimes hard when you are doing good work in therapy to live daily life. That's okay. You and I will work best together when you are getting good therapy. Want improvement? Want to feel as though you can reach your goals? Need to feel less alone? Contact me and we can discuss how you can get what you want &/or need. You are not alone.

Intuitive Advising

This service is for those that are less goal oriented. We look issues you are concerned over and then we see how you want to go. It's similar to my wellness coaching but I use divination to help you to look at what you choose to look at. If you are interested in this type of work, please contact me and we can talk. I also train groups and individuals in the use of Mindfulness to make life easier and more fun. I can teach you how to drop into a state of calmness and contentedness to bring you back to you during times of stress. It's easier when we have someone to guide us.

In the past, I have had the privilege of helping survivors and victims of violent crimes to heal. Now, my role has changed a bit. As a wellness coach, I don't do therapy anymore. Now I get to help you deal with the results of trauma in very practical ways. I am able to help you get the best results if we work together while you are working with a qualified therapist as well as any other professionals you need.  

If you are a survivor of trauma, please know that you are not alone. You can heal. Perhaps it's time to reach out and get the therapy you need to heal. During that time, contact me and we can talk about how you will make your life manageable while you are doing therapy.

If you are in crisis RIGHT NOW, please know that you can call a friend or relative you trust. You can call a helpline. Google it. You can then pick what service works best for you. It is your choice. Please contact and get the support of a qualified trauma therapist.

As a survivor of trauma and as someone thriving with Bipolar 2 disorder I know that healing is possible. I know that I am not alone. And I know that you are not alone no matter what your emotions may tell you. Reach out if you need help. It is possible to heal a bit at a time.

What will you do for yourself right now? Please message me if I can help? I do charge for coaching sessions. I can talk to you on the phone. I can talk to you via the internet. For now, that is how I am working. This may change at a later date. I have a sliding scale and I am more than willing to talk to you about cost. Don't let hardship stop you from reaching out.

You are not alone.
I believe you.
It was not your fault.
You have a choice.

I wish you the best.

Reaching out is hard. You are not alone. You are only as alone as you make yourself. You are not alone. Reach out to someone that cares about you and that you care about.

Reach out. To me or someone you trust. You don't have to do this alone. Reach out.

I am sad today. Not frozen. Not immobilized. Just sad. Not a big deal. I am looking forward to the creativity that will come as I work through this sadness. How do you deal with your sadness?
