Those seeking assistance from a licensed professional with extensive experience in trauma, eating disorders, addictive behaviors, anxiety, or major life changes would benefit from the support we offer during your journey toward healing and self discovery.
Understanding what is happening in your body and present moment experiences while learning and implementing effective skills or ways of coping is a foundational part of the healing process. We are here to offer a non-judgemental, compassion filled space for you to learn and heal from the past so you too can live more fully in the present.
In our sessions, we will work together to instill self-understanding, adopt new attitudes, "reframe" reactions, and improve positive thinking all while learning valuable skills to cope with life's obstacles and intense feelings. Making small changes to self-defeating behavior and coping with difficult feelings can bring life-altering results.
