Announcement icon I pray you are safe. During this pandemic I will be only be providing teletherapy to current clients in support of social distancing.
Is the life you're living not the life you imagined? Do you feel like you have given the best of yourself to others and wonder what's left for you? Does it feel like you are running out of time and you have yet to discover your purpose? Have you mastered the art of looking "all together" but inwardly it's taking everything you have to keep yourself together? Do you become angry, frustrated, sad, irritated when you think about your future? Are you feeling life has left you without options forcing you to settle for whatever comes your way? Have you stopped dreaming, imagining, and pursuing the once fiery passions of your heart?
I partner with women who are ready to love, live, and create from the truest version of themselves. Change isn't easy but strategies exist to create the "You" that you desire. I am called an "emotional make-up artist" who specializes in "before and afters". You may not be able to change your "Before" but you absolutely can choose and create your "After".
Life becomes challenging when it has taken you places you would have never chosen. However, you can choose not only how you want this next chapter of your life to look, but how you look emotionally and mentally. If you are ready to construct the truest version of yourself then contact me, I am ready.

Darlena Austin's Groups

Loving YourSelf 4Real

This 8 week group is designed for women who are ready to love, live, and produce from the truest version of themselves. Learning to change how we relate to ourselves is the key to enhancing our lives. This strategy will encompass: the journey of Self-exploration, amazing Self-Discovery, radical Self-acceptance, increased Self-esteem, deeper Self-love, heighten Self-confidence, and authentic Self-competence. These core traits are needed to create, produce, live, and love. At the end of the intensive you will be able to independently engage in the three-part change process because the process of Self-evolving is constant.

More about this group

Financial Social Work

As a certified Financial Social Worker, I desire to assist you in getting different outcomes with your money. It's not money BUT how you are relating to money. To achieve desired money outcomes you have to address personal psychosocial factors (conscious and subconscious thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes), relationship (money disconnectedness), behaviors, and financial knowledge.
