*Online Video Sessions* *Email is the fastest way to contact me* Greetings, I am sure our paths have not crossed by accident. I'm curious to see where this journey will lead .Maybe right now you're deep in your feelings, feeling sad or numb, wishing to feel JOY again... or just feel anything but this. Maybe you've experienced trauma and it plays over and over again, the pain or fear won't go away. Maybe you're struggling with relationships, situationships, friendships, or family connections. Maybe you're worried all the time and you just can't relax. Maybe you've wished Iyanla would just come fix your life!!
You know you're strong, you've tried to push through alone- but you know you need help. I invite you to seek the support you need. I believe you've probably tried everything you can. I also believe that where there is the breath of life there is INFINITE possibility. Let's see what you will AWAKEN to live your BEST LIFE and to move from survivor to THRIVER!!
By now you're probably asking-Harpo, who dis woman? I'm Maruka Rivers, MSW, LCSW. I've been supporting survivors of life for over 10 years. I have worked with many diagnoses and life stories.
