Announcement icon In response to the recent health crisis, COVID-19, I am offering telehealth options to ensure the safety and well-being of my clients.
I work with professional women and men who struggle with the demands of daily living, parenting, work/life balance, interpersonal and family relationships. My typical client is an overachiever and successful by society's standards who at times suffers from stress, anxiety, and/or depression.
I employ a variety of treatment modalities to address my clients' therapy needs. However, I typically use a combination of solution focused, narrative therapy and motivational interviewing techniques.
I am a Life Coach/ Therapist. I believe we all have the tools and the ability to reach our full potential, but life gets in the way from time to time, and when it does those setbacks often can shake some of us to our core.

More about this group

The Selfish Women's Group

Selfish Women's Group provides a space for women to come together and address the issues that threaten their ability to practice self-care. Groups are led by facilitators that help you understand the importance of self-care, explore ways to practice it, and identify behaviors that make it difficult for women to lighten the load they carry. If we don't take care of ourselves, we can't heal, we can't recover, we can't forgive, we can't move on, we can't be RESILIENT! www.vickbreedy.com/selfish-women-s-group
