Let me introduce myself to you. My name is Vickie Parker, I am 68 years old and most of the time, I really enjoy life. I have been married (for the second time around) for 35 years and I love my family. I have eleven beautiful grandchildren. I love the outdoors and enjoy running, swimming, and biking.
I was raised in a Christian home and my relationship with God is very much a part of my life. Being a Christian does not mean that I have not struggled with relationship issues, depression, anxiety, my own cancer (2015), losing a brother to cancer in 2014, taking care of elderly parents and feelings of loneliness and helplessness.
Therapy made a big difference in my life and I have a passion to pass on what I have learned, through my own therapy and education, to others who want it. My husband and I have had several years of couple’s therapy when things were really tough and I wanted to leave. Our marriage will always be a work in progress and we have learned to love accept each other and continue to grow in the journey together.
I graduated from National University in 2009 with my masters in Counseling. I received my license, in Marriage and Family Therapy, in 2012 and opened my own practice. I enjoy working with couples and have completed 1,2 and 3 level training, working with couples, through The Gottman Institute. I have also attended their training on affairs and PTSD. I am currently working on becoming a certified Gottman Therapist. Their training offers evidenced based research that they have been doing for over 35 years. Their method has great results in helping relationships improve.
I allow myself to be open and inspired by the world around me but I will always be the first to say that life is not easy. Life is a challenging adventure filled with difficult situations, excitement, relationships, joy, and lots of hard work. I live to inspire and encourage.
I welcome the opportunity to come along side of anyone who wants to make changes in their life and do the work. I meet with couples, families, and individuals.
