I grew up in St. Louis, Missouri, the oldest child of 6; I knew we were wealthy (we were NOT) and I always knew I was loved (I was). In my earliest years, I was an observer, pretty nerdy and absorbed the strong message that to those whom much has been given, much is expected. I was always pretty much a rule-follower and, yet, liked to push the edges just a little bit.
I met my husband in a “tiny fender-bender” at 61st & Lewis in Tulsa and we married and moved to Stillwater. We were actually going to stay in Stillwater for 9-months—that was in 1976—and, I’m still here. We had 4-children; all of whom are grown and have moved from Stillwater to “push their own edges.
I continued to work part-time as a dental hygienist while the kids were growing-up. Also involved in numerous church and community activities. As our children grew and became a little more self-sufficient, I decided to go back to school. In a unique (at that time) distance learning experience, I earned a Master’s in Religious Education from Loyola University-New Orleans. After that, I was able to serve the Catholic parishes in Stillwater as Director of Religious Education.
Life changed abruptly in 1994 with the death of my husband in a car accident. In working through this tragic event, I decided to go in a new direction. I went back to school at Oklahoma State and earned a MS in Community Counseling and then (at 50-years-of age) a PhD in Applied Behavioral Health—Counseling Psychology. I am now a licensed psychologist in private practice in Stillwater.
My experiences as a dental hygienist and then a Director of Religious Education have coalesced in my present career as a licensed psychologist…the connections among body, spirit and mind are clear.
Mental health (and mental illness) have their own set of challenges set up by fear and stigma and, in some cases, lack of access to care. In this hour, we will explore some of the metaphors and strategies that have been helpful to me and to my patients in achieving new insight into mental health, or, the balance of mind, body, spirit. We will also discuss some of the cultural, economic and political issues related to mental health in this day and age.
