Darlene K. Wheeler, Ph.D

Psychologist, Lic. No. PSY25590

Dr. Wheeler shares quotes that inspire her.

“Fear, to a great extent, is born of a story we tell ourselves, and so I chose to tell myself a different story from the one women are told. I decided I was safe. I was strong. I was brave. Nothing could vanquish me.”
— Cheryl Strayed, Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail

“I’ve been absolutely terrified every moment of my life and I’ve never let it keep me from doing a single thing that I wanted to do.”
— Georgia O’Keeffe

“Wisdom comes not from being perfect but from being present.”
— Susan Kaiser Greenland

Ready to change your story to one that recognizes and builds on your own courage, strength, and sense of meaning? Ready to do what your fears would prevent? Ready to be more present to yourself and with others?

Dr. Wheeler would like to be present with you, to support you in meeting those challenges. Whether faced with symptoms of depression, anxiety, crippling indecision, or other life challenges, your life can be more whole. She looks forward to work together with you to make that happen.
