Professional statement

Sleepless nights. The shear sense of panic coursing through your veins as you lay awake at 3am dreading the day ahead. You are already ready running on little to no sleep, and the cycle just doesn’t seem to end. Despair creeps in and the thoughts and worry get more pronounced; you are literally paralyzed. Am I supposed to feel this way? Will the cycle never end? Will I ever feel like myself again? On the outside you project the picture qwof composure, people say, “they’ve got it all figured out, not a worry in the world,” but on the inside a battle wages on, your inner demons have a tight hold over you now, and it feels like you’ve already lost.


Message to clients

I can provide you with the tools to rise again, and together we can win this fight. With a combination of a few daily adjustments and simple life hacks the immediate symptoms, the racing thoughts, the fear, the panic, and despair can be alleviated. Going deeper, we will work through the “old stuff,” you know, the “stuff” that you keep buried deep inside, the reason this all started in the first place. In a safe therapeutic environment, we will unpack and process this stuff and ensure that the demons can never get hold of you again.

The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Take that first step, and setup a consultation and we will begin your journey to recovery today.
