~~Accepting NEW CLIENTS ~~

Are you struggling with anxiety and/or depression and nothing seems to change? You desire help but not sure what to expect or if anything will work? You've come to the right place!

Solution-focused therapy will help decrease the negative symptoms you're experiencing (worry, poor sleep, panic attacks, irritability, and so on) and build your problem-solving skills so you can regain your well being. Do you have anxiety and it just seems to be getting worse? Do you want to make changes, but don't know how? Do you have history of childhood abuse/neglect that impacts your current relationships? Do you feel guilty because you want more out of life but everyone tells you you're successful? Were you adopted and just don't feel like you "belong" anywhere? If you answered yes to any of these, We can help! Healing is possible.

Our approach to treatment is client-centered meaning you decide on your goals and we partner with you to reach them. We'll capitalize on your strengths to help resolve your worries. By seeking help, you're taking steps to create the life your want. We're honored to help you through this transitional time.

At the heart of our work is FUN! Though you may be struggling, it doesn't mean the process of getting better can't be enjoyable. Come in and see how counseling can enhance your life.

More Info About My Practice

Inner Wisdom Therapy, LLC is a place to Grow, Heal and Become Who You're Meant To Be.

Get the individual attention you need to reach your desired goals by actively participating in your recovery. Here at Inner Wisdom Therapy we'll support and encourage every step of the way. We'll make suggestions of how to change your thinking and behavior to help resolve your issue and move to a place of feeling more empowered. Therapy isn't just talking, it's doing. You'll be asked to do homework assignments to help you gain insight to what you want and what obstacles are keeping you from achieving it. Through these assignments you'll begin to see patterns that keep you stuck and we'll knock down those barriers.

We hope to see you soon.

Life transitions (divorce, career changes, moves etc)

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Can't decide if therapy is right for you? You're not alone. Most won't seek out therapy for a number of reasons, but no worries! Therapy is really about getting you feeling better. If you had some lingering aches and pains, you'd probably go to the doctor right? Therapy is no different. Emotionally, you may feel drained, numb, that you 'don't care', or you're angry. These are symptoms just like physical pain and deserve your attention.

I'm here to listen to you so those feelings can be released and you can move forward. You'll gain insights and tools to handle future issues more easily. Come on in! You'll be glad you did.
