About

Do you feel off-balance in your life, work or relationships? You've spent the last however-many-years trying to keep it all together, but it can be exhausting and you don’t feel you can do that anymore. As far as anyone can see, you have a great life. You’re accomplished, driven, and dependable. But inside, you never feel good enough and the voice inside your head quickly reminds you of all the ways you fall short. You're tired of always giving so much to others while you continue to place last on your list. No longer. Now is the time for change.
You want to finally relax and enjoy this life you’ve worked so hard to create. You want to learn to have a work life balance and finally begin to put yourself first without feeling selfish or guilty. You're ready to quiet the critic inside so you can feel more carefree and excited about everything you have going on. I can help you get there.
I make it easy to fit therapy into your busy life with simple 24/7 online scheduling. Counseling is easier than ever before with online, virtual and phone sessions. All you need are your earbuds, computer or mobile device. Instead of playing phone tag, just send me an email: Office@BraveIsBettter.com to schedule your free phone consultation today. :)
