Sometimes life throws us a curve-ball that we just didn't expect. Whatever the curve-ball is, either large or small, it is common to cause anxiety, even if it is something exciting. If your curve-ball is something that isn't so exciting, maybe you feel traumatized. This can happen for any situation that causes disruption to your daily routine, your thinking and ultimately your ability to function at your full potential. Whatever your anxiety or trauma is about, we can help! We are a team of therapists that work extensively with anxiety provoking issues. These could be about relationships, life events, or any negative experience that is holding you back. If you are struggling with moving past a traumatic incident, or finding it difficult to overcome anxiety of any sort, please contact us. We will have one of our experienced therapists contact you as soon as possible. We look forward to hearing from you!

The need for validation and attention, being clingy yet wanting isolation. Anger, stress and anxiety while constantly thinking, analyzing and hurting…if these are some of the emotions you feel, let’s talk.

Therapy sessions are conversations that change lives. I believe in a type of therapy that is non-judgmental and empowering, using a respectful approach.  Together we can work on the changes you would like to make, uncover aspects about yourself, discover your strength and learn how to use them. Together we can look at the past, how it’s affecting the present and creating a future you want.
