Congratulations on taking steps to feel better! Many people struggle with regulating intense emotions, lack impulse control, or use self-harming behaviors. Some find themselves in in high conflict relationships or have difficulty creating and maintaining boundaries. Even more people are plagued with negative thoughts, paralyzing procrastination, or excessive rumination that hold them back from living a vibrant life. If these symptoms resonate with you I'd like to help you overcome obstacles so you can create a life you love!
