Guided Wellness Counseling

Therapy In St. George, UT

Move past your past,
into an adventurous life.

Healing | Depression | Anxiety | Trauma

The depression and anxiety that has followed you to this moment, you know it’s time to pay attention to it. You’re used to working hard, putting on a smile for your kids and partner. You’ve been trying to do it all. But the looming sense of hopelessness and fatigue just won’t let up.

I work with adventurous women who are struggling with depression, anxiety and trauma. Together we explore the connection between the things they’ve experienced and how it’s affecting them now. They understand themselves better, are less irritable, more relaxed and have deeper relationships with their kiddos, partners and friends. We explore boundaries and they begin to say Yes and No with greater confidence, making choices that create balance in their lives.

Schedule a free 15 minute consultation to see if counseling is the next step for you. I’ll answer any questions you may have and give you the information so that you can make this choice for yourself. My goal is for you to feel understood and respected. You are not broken or crazy. Let’s get started on this together.
