Do you have difficulty keeping up with the demands of life? Do you feel disconnected or down? Does it seem like your mind is often running away with worry? Are you going through a big change and could use some guidance? You're not alone and I'd like to help! You and I both know that over time, life can get away from us. I can help you find new ways of living and being that reduce stress and struggle, while enhancing meaning, purpose, and enjoyment of life.
Life is about constant transition and growth. Learn how to navigate the waves of change with confidence and ease. Life doesn't have to be so difficult, lets work it out together! I use science-based approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Biofeedback, and Mindful Self-Compassion Therapy.
Specializing in anxiety, depression, addiction, relationships, life transitions, and self-actualization, we offer individual and group sessions in person, by phone, and via secure online counseling. Our practice also offers couples and family counseling. To learn more please see www.lifetransitionsupport.com or email starrmackinnnophd@gmail.com.
