Many people think that therapy is simply a place to vent about life’s problems. It can be used for that but it’s more to it! Therapy is where you go to meet with someone who is trained and skilled in providing resources that help you navigate through life’s challenges. Everyone can benefit from that type of support! To the person struggling with anxiety, imagine feeling so confident in yourself and your worth that everything you do reflects that. To the person struggling with a traumatic past, imagine becoming so healed that you can handle whatever else life throws at you. Maybe you're facing a life transition and thinking of your next move. I may be the therapist for you! If you need help getting your voice or your life back, contact me! If you have an idea of how you want your life to be and need help getting there, contact me! If you're experiencing feelings you don't quite understand, contact me! Rising Phoenix Counseling is ready to help you rise today!
