Defeat Fear and Pain,  Find Power and Strength!

I help children, teens and young adults accomplish their personal goals without fear or worry.

My clients struggle just like you do. Despite being smart, kind and goal-oriented, life is hard.

When they first come in, they are often tired from staying up all night worrying about something coming up later in the week.

Their bodies felt so badly from pain or feeling sick, that they could not get comfortable enough to sleep.

They sometimes are afraid at home, work or school, making it hard to get through the day.

They assume the worst in themselves because their goals are going unaccomplished and their bodies struggle to meet the demands of daily life.

Their cluttered thoughts get in the way of the life that they want in so many ways. They aren’t the kind of student, family member or employee that they want to be. They feel like they are failing in their social lives. And their confidence in themselves is tanking.

Many of them live through every day as if they are wearing a mask. The mask covers how they really feel: physical pain from worry or another illness, the need to make everyone else happy while they suffer alone, disconnected from others, and oftentimes feeling misunderstood and hopeless.

Before they came to see me, they were concerned that they would say or do the “wrong”things. They worried that I would see them as a “crazy” person. There were concerns that their bodies felt too tired or in pain to truly give their best. And they were pretty certain that they would have a meltdown by the end of the session. These worries have talked them out of getting the help they deserve.

Like my clients, you deserve to accomplish your goals and daily tasks with pride and confidence. Remaining calm under stress and pressure is not out of your reach! Connecting with others is still a possibility! Living with pain or another illness does not have to mean you can’t live life to the fullest! If you want to have power over your stress, worries, and self-defeat, I’d love to help you get there.

Call now. You don’t have to struggle. I can help!
