Recently I have watched as my own friends and family, as well as my clients, have struggled with managing quarantine. People have lost jobs, parents are struggling with keeping their families entertained, and individuals of all ages are prevented from seeing friends and family. Now more than ever, many are experiencing social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties. This has inspired me to offer new services for people all over. These services are not meant to be your traditional therapy type services, but instead are focused more on helping with managing these difficult times, being able to find outlets for expression and creativity, and still be able to feel connected with others. My services will be offered through video or phone sessions or can be done on your own. Services are offered to anyone in any state!! For more information on services or to schedule, please contact me!
I have broken my services down by category to help you with determining which service could be right for you.
