Feeling stuck, immobilized and unable to change your life? What's holding you back from being your best self? Through a behavioral lens we work together to identify the behaviors and patterns that are holding you back from your goals and systematically relearn healthy patterns and coping mechanisms that will empower you to make the best decisions for yourself, your relationships or your family. I work from a person centered approach creating a safe space where we work together to help determine your needs and goals. One day or Day one, you choose.
I work from a person centered and CBT lens to figure out what is not working, why it is not working and to support you to make different choices. Lets throw out those self defeating thoughts and maladaptive patterns. Now is the best time for change and I am her to support and motivate you towards your goals. One day or day one you choose.
Please reach out for a free consultation if you are interested in learning more. I am looking forward to speak to you.
