Sometimes life becomes overwhelming. When anxious and depressed, we may start depending on unhealthy coping habits which can make us feel stuck. The roots of these issues can be hard to identify. Sometimes they are simply hard to admit. In my counseling practice I like to make space for you to heal from and find meaning in your life struggles. We are not meant to carry the burden alone. Whatever your struggle, you deserve to find freedom and peace.
