About

If you are like most people who come to therapy, you've probably felt like you've been running in circles for a long time. Dealing with the same feelings, thoughts, memories, and worries over and over again. In the meantime, you've noticed your life passing you by. What if you could start your life TODAY? What if you don't have to wait? Healing comes from the Latin word for 'wholeness.' To heal is to become whole again. We believe within the pain of suffering can lay our greatest strengths. And there is no part of you that deserves to be cast aside. We don't focus on changing who you are, but on creating the life that you want.
We work closely with you to clarify what is most important to you in life. Therapy can be more than just about talk, therapy can be about action and moving your life forward. With a gentle and compassionate hand, we'll teach you the concrete skills and tools you need to succeed. I offer EMDR for Trauma and Exposure and Response Prevention for OCD.
One size does not fit all. Whether you have anxiety, addiction, depression, life changes, fears, mood disorders or trauma, you deserve to be a complete person again. You are more than just a diagnosis. Come see us and get back into your life. Evening appointments available 10am-8pm. Call us today or visit our website: www.thewayaheadcounseling.com
