Sheree Jones-Pistol, MA, LMFT, PPS

Everyone experiences, at one time or another, difficulty interacting with others and coping with stressful events. I will guide you through your challenges, assist you in relieving your stresses, and support you through your enlightenment process to ultimately solve your problems on your own and achieve your goals. "All negative emotions are caused by a disruption in the body's energy system" -- this is the foundation I incorporate in my work. I blend psychotherapy, spiritual beliefs, and Eastern philosophies to work toward healing, working with the entire person's energy system.
