River's Journey Counseling, MA, LCPC, NCC, MAC, Counselor in Batavia
Are you ready for change in your life? Do you feel like something is keeping you from reaching your greatest potential? But are you feeling anxious or confused about how to get started on your new path? Whether you are looking to heal and move forward or simply to feel and function better in your life; know that counseling helps! Let go of old habits or relationships that don't work. Start feeling more balanced and more trusting of yourself and your decisions. Live life fully and with purpose. Get ready to create the life you deserve!
If you are feeling "stuck" in your life because of anxiety, depression, self-esteem, self-acceptance, difficult relationships, stress, or life transition; I am here as your ally on your journey to change. Come to a safe and supportive space to sort things out and get "unstuck".
My primary mode for assisting clients is "talk therapy", but if you are seeking new ways to decrease your stress, increase relaxation, or break through an emotional block--consider Reiki. Reiki taps into your body's ability to increase it's own healing by restoring physical and emotional well-being.
