Message to clients

Are intense feelings of anxiety, anger, or sadness affecting your life? Do you feel like you need help, but unsure of where to start? You are not alone. This is a natural stress response caused by upsetting events in our past. Upsetting situations can wreak havoc on our sleep, and eating patterns, our relationships with others. It makes us sensitive to our environment by linking past events with our current environment. This link causes intense anxiety, fears, and strains our professional and personal relationships. We attempt to reduce the intensity of these fears by isolating ourselves and avoiding stressful situations which prevent us from healing.

With support we can learn ways to cope with intense feelings. Working with a therapist that is supportive, caring, compassionate, is vital to our success in healing. Once we begin healing, we discover that we do not have to survive life and we can then begin living a rewarding life.
