Are you tired of feeling anxious or stressed? Are you finding it hard to get past pain or trauma from your past? When stress gets to be too much, when emotions become overwhelming, when anxiety or sadness consumes you, we can help you to find balance and healing.
Therapy is about finding a safe place to begin to face what is painful or scary so you can begin to consciously choose how you want to be in this world.
Regardless if you are new to therapy or have worked with a counselor in the past, know that finding a therapist that is the right fit for you and for your needs can take time. At Brighter Sky Counseling we commend you for taking these brave steps.
At Brighter Sky Counseling we offer compassionate and effective therapy for adults, and adolescents aged 16 and up.
Here you can start to gain your voice, feel more balanced and learn to be more in control of yourself and your reactions. Together you will learn to be more mindful of your self, your needs, your emotions. By becoming aware of these parts of yourself you will learn to make conscious choices for yourself, gain better relationships, be a better parent and learn to have love and compassion for yourself.
To have connection to others, we must first be connected to ourselves. Brighter Sky Counseling
