Marriage & Family Therapist Intern

Through life’s journey there are times that we may feel stuck as if there is a part of you that won’t allow you to reach your goals? Do you want more from your life or are you finding it hard to get through your day without feeling anxious, angry, sad or overwhelmed? Do you struggle with addictive or compulsive behaviors? Or are you having relationship issues with your loved ones or coworkers? There is hope.

The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, not to worry about the future…but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly. — Siddhartha Gautama Buddha
