"Are you struggling with substances but feel “rehab” isn’t right for you? You don’t need to leave your job or family for a month to find the help you need. Addiction is tough: that compulsion to go back and do the same thing over and over, even though you know it's destroying your life... You feel fear, anxiety, failure, worthlessness, humiliation, contempt... You've tried to break the 'habit', get your control back, but just when you start feeling some success you stumble, and you're back in the same hole again. Breaking your substance abuse alone is not as simple as it sounds. Counseling may be more effective for you than rehab."

"Are you suffering from anxiety and depression, or having symptoms such as insomnia or a change in appetite, have feelings that something is not quite right but feel stuck as how to change. We are often unconsciously drawn to familiar situations we learned in childhood. Events and relationships in the earlier parts of our lives have affected us, and draw us into familiar situations where we repeat unhealthy choices, that are often not in our best interest."

"During my first psychology class in high school I learned that there are actually words to describe my experience-the sometimes conflicting experiences of living between two different worlds. I became passionate about finding a way to address the experience of people whose hurts and wounds are often invisible-fractured hearts and minds vs physical challenges. I was saddened by my observation that too many people feel stigmatized and alone with their inner turmoil and wanted to find a way to make the heart, mind and body whole. My dream is that therapy becomes accessible to everyone and viewed merely as another source of support."
