Announcement icon My Team Member Regina Gould is also taking new clients.


Now Accepting New Clients for the new year! Life can be challenging. You have tried to manage your emotions but its not enough. It can be a struggle for you to relax. You are trying to figure out who you are and your identity. You have high expectations for yourself & beat yourself up when you fall short of them. You worry about so much and its hard to let things go. You get stuck in your head, your thoughts keep you up at night. I can help shed some light on your struggles and obstacles. I can teach you the skills to overcome obstacles and better mange your emotions so you can find the relief you are looking for.
My specialties include working with young adults finding balance during college, starting in the working world or facing other life changes . I integrate holistic breath work, meditation, mindfulness or trauma informed yoga. I have helped many young adults reclaim their lives and feel more like themselves again.
Our approach can help you to transform your life: mind, body & spirit. Me and my team are Queer Competent and provide an inclusive, comfortable & safe space for you to be your authentic self. Have questions? Reach out today at for free phone consultation to see if we are a good fit!
