"Your life is a story of transition. You are always leaving one chapter behind while moving on to the next." - Anonymous
Do you feel like the world is spinning around you? Is everything changing so fast?
Has your life been touched by a major event such as a death, divorce, layoff at work, graduation, or marriage?
Or do you feel stuck and like you need guidance getting back on track?
There is no denying that life often presents us with our fair share of challenges, usually in the form of sudden change. These life transitions, even the positive ones, can throw us into a tailspin and leave us feeling stressed, confused, and vulnerable. But with the right tools and mindset, you have the power to not only overcome any adversity, but also transform into a more authentic and confident version of yourself.
Change, even difficult change that is neither wanted or expected, can influence personal growth. Change gives us the opportunity to see what we are made of; to become stronger, more confident, and better prepared for what life throws at us next. With each new challenge, we develop new personal skills and obtain a greater awareness of ourselves, our family, and our communities.

Brainspotting can be used effectively with children. When working with children, we use simple, creative ways to engage the child through play based on the child’s age, trauma responses, and attachment styles. Brainspotting is tailored to meet the developmental needs of the child.
Is it time to speak to someone?
Sometimes we can handle change and adversity by ourselves, and sometimes we need a little help. We are here to lend that helping hand and offer a warm and encouraging environment where you can speak candidly and recieve care, compassion, and guidance.
