Diane Petrella, MSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Providence
Do you want to feel in charge of your life? Do you want to stop repeating unhealthy patterns? Do you want to solve your problems with less struggle and greater ease? Using a holistic approach, I integrate psychology with spirituality. My ideal clients are people who want to access their inner wisdom and trust their intuition to guide them. I can teach you how to use visualization, meditation and EFT, a rapid results energy psychology technique. You'll also learn the healing benefits of forgiveness and self-compassion so you can create lasting change and live a powerful life.
I offer two approaches: As a psychotherapist, I will guide you in exploring your past when necessary and help you release self-sabotaging behavior patterns and heavy emotional states. As a certified life coach, I will teach you techniques to help you easily set and reach your goals.
Deep inside you have the answers. Really. Sometimes it's hard to believe that when you're in pain. But underneath all the turmoil you may be experiencing right now is a wellspring of strength and inner peace. Let me know if you'd like my guidance to help you find it. Take care, Diane
