"This may come as a surprise to you, but if you are looking for regular "talk therapy" I lovingly suggest you contact someone else. Most of my clients have done a lot of therapy and personal growth work with some rewards, but without getting to the core of what they are seeking. Integrating the best of body-centered psychotherapy, meditation and mental and emotional skills training, I support my clients to connect deeply with their own inner truth, heal the wounds that are ready to be healed, and hone the skills necessary to live sanely and well in our fast-paced world. www.amandastason.com"
