I know for young adults the struggle is very real. You often find yourself in a space where your life is changing, but you're unsure of how to move forward. You might feel anxious & unprepared to meet the challenges of adulting. A recent break-up might have you questioning if there's anyone else out there for you. You might be engaging in some unhealthy habits to help you cope with the pain & uncertainty in your life. It's time to heal past hurts, stand up for yourself, & build the confidence you need to be your own GOAT.

Working together we can find the answers to some of the questions you have. It is possible to begin to create change & adopt new strategies for a better life in a few short weeks. Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) is one of the tools I use to help you become more aware of what you want in life while empowering you with the skills you need to secure it.

This is your life; live it! Let's work together to bring you more joy & less stress; move you from chaos to clarity. It's time for you to take control of what you want to do in life. I'm here for you. If you're ready, let's connect.
