Rappahannock News - - OBITUARIES • WASHINGTON -

The Mar­i­anne Clyde Cen­ter for Holis­tic Psy­chother­apy has an­nounced the trans­fer of the busi­ness, ef­fec­tive Jan. 1, to Anna Marie Askin-Evans, a li­censed pro­fes­sional coun­selor and mar­riage and fam­ily ther­a­pist.

The trans­fer comes upon the re­tire­ment of award-win­ning ther­a­pist and Rap­pa­han­nock County res­i­dent Mar­i­anne Clyde, LMFT at of the end of De­cem­ber.

“I can’t tell you how thrilled I am that the work I started here years ago will con­tinue un­der very ca­pa­ble hands!” says Clyde, who has been a ther­a­pist for 28 years.

Clyde is the au­thor of three Ama­zon best-sell­ers, “Peace­ful

10 Es­sen­tial Prin­ci­ples,” “Un-Leashed: Prac­ti­cal Steps to get your Life Un- stuck,” and “Zen­tiv­ity: How to Elim­i­nate Chaos, Stress and Dis­con­tent in Your Work­place.”

She tells the Rap­pa­han­nock News of her re­tire­ment: “It's just time. I'm ready.”

Askin-Evans has been with the Cen­ter since 2015 and has served as the di­rec­tor of Ado­les­cent Pro­grams. Head­ing up the di­ver­sion Pro­gram for low risk teens in part­ner­ship with the court ser­vices unit has been and will re­main an im­por­tant part of her role. She also works with fam­i­lies, cou­ples and in­di­vid­u­als, help­ing them find their core value and teach­ing them to op­er­ate from that place.

“I am so ex­cited to serve the com­mu­nity,” says AskinE­vans. “Cen­ter for Holis­tic

soyf cChaorp­thete,rapy will be ded­i­cated to serv­ing the needs of our clients, as we will con­tinue the

of Mar­i­anne Clyde Cen­ter, to value the whole­ness of each in­di­vid­ual as they pur­sue their jour­ney of per­sonal heal­ing. I am grate­ful to Mar­i­anne for this op­por­tu­nity and the years we have worked to­gether.”

Clyde says while there are some changes, much will re­main the same: “Clients will still get the same amaz­ing ser­vice by com­pe­tent and ef­fec­tive ther­a­pists, and the ad­dress — 20 Ashby Street in War­ren­ton — and phone num­ber (540-347-3797) will re­main the same.”

How­ever, the name will change to the Cen­ter for Holis­tic Psy­chother­apy and the web­site will be www.cen­ter­forholis­ticpsy­chother­apy.com.

Also con­tin­u­ing at the Cen­ter is Michelle Leonard, a li­censed clin­i­cal so­cial worker with 20 years’ ex­pe­ri­ence work­ing with cou­ples, and in­di­vid­ual adults with de­pres­sion, anx­i­ety, trauma and eat­ing dis­or­ders. Leonard has been with the cen­ter since 2017 and spe­cial­izes in Chris­tian coun­sel­ing.

Clyde says she will con­tinue her work with Be the Change Foun­da­tion, www. bethechange­foun­da­tion.us, help­ing equip and train women en­trepreneurs. She will also con­tinue as a ex­ec­u­tive board mem­ber for the Fauquier Cham­ber of Com­merce and as the or­ga­nizer for the Gen­eros­ity Feeds event, www. gen­eros­i­tyfeedswar­ren­ton.org, on Feb. 23. She’s also worked closely with Kid Pan Al­ley,
