Free yourself from the pain of your childhood and/or adulthood.

As a child did you feel…

  • Unloved
  • Ignored, unseen, or unknown for your true self
  • Not treasured
  • Inhibited from speaking the truth
  • Unsafe or chronically anxious
  • Incompetent or afraid to be less than perfect

As an adult, do you struggle with…

  • Going “home” or to any family of origin events
  • Relationships- family, friends, and/or coworkers
  • Judgment by others or yourself of your sexual/gender orientation
  • Anxiety, depression, and/or intense anger or rage
  • Insomnia, chronic pain, and/or unresolved loss
  • Addictive, self-sabotaging, or self-destructive behaviors
  • An internalized self-critic which pushes you to be perfectionist or underperform and feelings of shame
  • Inability to forgive others or yourself
  • Navigating life transitions and having the courage to live a life that fits you
  • Your roles at home, work, or elsewhere

Individual therapy can help change the course of your life.

when you process your pain- both the struggle and the hidden gifts, and let the past go. Having a non-judgmental, compassionate, and authentic space to reflect on your successes and the areas in which you desire to grow can help you develop a more accurate view of yourself and your life.

Lana is a compassionate and dedicated therapist who helped me feel heard, understand how my past has affected me, and identified patterns in my life. What brought me into therapy was feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and irritable, which led to me drinking too much and emotional eating. After working with Lana, I’m headed in the right direction and more mindful of my eating and drinking patterns.
