**ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS** Like many moms, you wear numerous hats in your life, and trying to manage them all successfully can be emotionally exhausting. Too often, you tell yourself that you ARE FAILING; failing at being a mom, failing at being a partner, failing at being a friend, failing at being an employee or student, etc etc...leaving you feeling helpless, hopeless, anxious, and depressed. One voice tells you that you CAN do this while the louder voice tells you that you CAN'T, so you isolate in the silence of shame and put on a brave face hoping to make it through the day. You want to feel better, but you're unsure how.
I want you to know that YOU'RE NOT FAILING! You're stuck in a cycle of negative thinking that is both common AND changeable! I've dedicated my work to helping you not only understand your thought patterns, but learn tools to help you make the changes necessary for feeling balanced and in control of your life once again.
I know you're struggling and I know what you're experiencing is not easy, and I know you CAN feel better! I will partner with you all the way, and together we will help you find happiness and balance in your life. Contact me to learn how we can work together today to change your tomorrow.
