Aren't you tired of being told to "relax", "stop overthinking", "you are too sensitive" and "you worry too much"? People tell you this as if you don't want to relax, stop overthinking, let things get you upset and worry! If you could, you would! Hearing this from friends and family members doesn't help. In fact, it can make you feel even worse. You have tried to stop on your own but your mind continues to fill up with things that make you stressed out and you have a hard time turning it off. You are not alone! I get it and can completely relate! That is why I love helping people find relief.

We will get to the root of the problem so you can feel better using proven techniques such as EMDR, Internal Family Systems (IFS) and expressive art therapy. EMDR is a powerful technique that can help people get 'unstuck'. Art therapy accesses parts of your brain that talking alone can't (no experience required!). IFS helps make everything more manageable.

Therapy at Forward Emotion can get you moving in the right direction. You don't have to keep feeling this way. Isn't is time to make some changes and start enjoying your life again? I want to help you do just that. Pick up the phone or send an email to contact me today to get started! You can feel better!
