Eileen’s counseling and social work background includes employment in the areas of geriatrics, addictions, domestic violence, special needs, veterans affairs and career counseling and transition. She has worked extensively with both adults and seniors during her career.
Her personal style is one of being a compassionate witness and guide for couples and individuals in need of assistance and healing from such issues as:
- Anxiety and Depression
- Chronic Fatigue
- Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
- Grief and Loss
- Chemical Dependency
- Career and Relationship Dissatisfaction
Eileen’s personal philosophy reinforces the idea that “human beings, through their own consciousness, create their own values and determine a meaning to their life”. She supports each client as they go through the rigors of defining and finding clarity for their life’s meaning and purpose. As a guide, she provides perspective and insight for each challenge, in order to facilitate solution-oriented problem-solving.
She founded and directs The Reiki Training Program, the only state-licensed vocational school of Reiki and combines this modality within the context of the counseling session if a client so desires. She has developed the technique of Insight Reiki, based on Process-oriented psychology, which combines both energy work and mindful counseling into the context of the session. This technique is appropriate for dealing with chronic issues to provide deeper body awareness and the potential for greater insight and resolution.
