Welcome to the TRANSITIONS Counseling Online Resource Links!

Every effort has been made to develop this links page into a comprehensive gateway to a spectrum of counseling, psychological, personal growth and recovery-oriented interests. This is a growing page, and since the Net is constantly changing, I cannot guarantee a successful link in every case. These sites were reviewed at the time of listing to determine that they are child-safe (but remember all links connect to links…).

I chose sites that might be of use to you that ALSO are in accord with my training, theoretical orientation and focus of practice. If you are considering working with me in counseling, your feeling in-sync with these sites may be a sign of therapeutic compatibility. The content you can find at these sites will be helpful to you if you are still working on the idea of entering counseling, and if you are already in counseling, it will likely enhance your progress.

1.The first section will allow you to explore sites dealing with different psychological approaches to counseling, along with providing information pertaining to specific problem areas.

2.Section two provides site-links to various self-help resources, from reading and multi-media resources to networking opportunities.

3.Section three covers sites that explore the hazards of managed care in mental health.

4.Section four lists some Internet Resources for Life-Enhancement, Inspiration and Fun. Don't underestimate the capacity of these resources to help support you, whether you are considering counseling or already involved in some formal counseling process!

BEFORE YOU SURF OUT OF HERE. . . NOW IS THE TIME TO "BOOKMARK" OR SAVE TRANSITIONS IN "FAVORITES" TO BE SURE YOU WILL FIND YOUR WAY BACK.

Angels For Peace

Join the kindness revolution! We hear so much about negative aspects of the world in the news, but there also is a spiritual revolution of everything positive. Look for evidence of this world polarization and make a decision about your place here. These web pages will inspire you to try things that can give you joy and peace of mind. The feeling of unity and fulfillment that service brings has more potential for creating a sense of wellbeing than all of the psychotherapies ever devised! The angels at Conari Press describe random acts of kindness as, "Those little sweet or grand lovely things we do for no reason except that, momentarily, the best of our humanity has sprung, exquisitely, into full bloom."

If we begin by practicing these acts at home, then by-all-means extend our practices out into the world, we will find that occurrences of our acts of kindness become no longer random, but out of our very nature; the very nature of Life.

Family Humor Archive

Mental Health Humor

Humor has powerful healing properties, psychologically and physically. Surprise and delight are key ingredients, often combined with a topic involving unresolved conflict. Being able to laugh allows us to open up to our discomfort, or surprise, and tension is released. Check out these clean-humor (Yahoo-identified) sites. Some are wild/wacky, or strange, or even spiritual. All are funny. See if a tour through the cyber-humor realm lightens life a little for you!

Who of us would deny the apparent healing potential of music? Over recent years, this awareness has been blossoming into a science. These pages link you to people who create healing music (listen to samples of their work) and to others who use music directly as a therapeutic tool. Perhaps the samples and themes will connect with you.
