The issues in life often leave us feeling alone, isolated, frustrated, and empty. By using mindfulness, I help you learn to cope and live a life that is centered and grounded in healthy choices; which, help mitigate these painful feelings. Make the call. Change your life. This is not an easy process, I agree, however, it is well worth it. Investing in your mental health is the single best choice you can make.
Here at Sano Center for Recovery we focus on assisting you with gaining improved mental health by utilizing various empirically proven therapeutic techniques. Meditative practices as well as Cognitive Behavioral therapeutic interventions have shown in many studies to improve quality of life as well as mental health.
Our understanding of the Gay and Lesbian community allows us to provide a compassion filled therapeutic environment. If you are struggling with the issue of Sexual Addiction we use proven interventions to help cope with shame and guilt. You do not have to sit alone. Call us.
