Do challenging emotions get the best of you?

You find yourself thinking that things will never get better?   You start catastrophizing, predicting the worst.  Your Inner Critic starts telling you lies like there's something wrong with you and that you don't deserve to be happy.
Are anxiety or depression running your life?  

Are anxiety & depression eclipsing you? Without help you may be drowning in these common problems:
  • Troubling emotions like depression, irritability, anger and anxiety
  • Low self esteem, difficulty making decisions
  • Self-defeating thoughts that stop you in your tracks
  • Relationship problems
  • Chronic health problems
  • Isolation from the people who care about you
HeFeeling depression like a weight on your back?althy grief becomes depression.    Anxiety, panic.   Frustration, anger.

Without consciously deciding, you may seek relief  by using food, alcohol, over-work, shopping or drugs.  But these attempts to feel good may fall short and you end up feeling worse than before.  Hopeless at times.

Our specialized training in anxiety and depression management, neurobiology and mindfulness give you practical results right when you need them.  Put our 1000's of hours of experience and training to work for you now.  Most clients leave the office feeling better after each visit.  Why suffer any longer?

Our skilled and compassionate therapists will help you identify, examine and challenge the thoughts that close doors.   We will help you recognize these troubling thoughts and emotions for what they are: the body’s best intentions to keep you safe. . . but at great cost to you and the life you were meant to live.  Like the story of the Golden Buddha, you may come to realize that you are not your feelings, not even your thoughts.  

And that there is a better life waiting for you. Together, as we compassionately address these patterns, they lose their power to run your life.  

Description:, you'll discover that well-being, confidence and creativity have been patiently waiting inside you, underneath the frustration and discouragement.  Together we will find and call upon your healthy self and your inner wisdom.

After a while, like the acorn and the oak tree, you come to know the real truth about you, that you are a capable person ready to have meaningful relationships and work,  and that you deserve to be happy. And if you are someone who has a spiritual path, this work will call Spirit more deeply and joyfully into your life.

There is convincing evidence that most people who have at least several sessions of psychotherapy are far better off than untreated individuals.  One major study showed that:

  • 50% of patients improved noticeably after 8 sessions. 
  • 75% of people in therapy improved after 6 months.

Perhaps you are ready to be one of those people?
