Introduction

Life is a struggle and you’re feeling overwhelmed. Your relationships are strained and you don’t know where to turn. Things that used to be easy are hard and you’re running out of options. Maybe it’s hard just to get out of bed in the morning or to cross things off of your to-do list. Your kids aren’t acting like themselves and your normal ways of dealing with life just aren’t cutting it anymore. Help is not far off. You’re not alone in the struggle. You want to feel like yourself again and become the parent you’ve always wanted to be. You want to feel hopeful and know there’s a brighter future ahead of you. You want to learn how to stay calm and happy in the face of the uncertain world that you’re living in. Life might be hard but therapy doesn’t have to be! Sessions are available by phone or online anywhere in the state of NM. Head over to my website anytime, day or night, to schedule a free consultation session. I am certified in Child and Parent Psychotherapy and EMDR. A calmer, happier and more peaceful life is closer than you think! Begin a new chapter...
