It’s not easy to be a human being. In fact, everyone needs a mentor to attain their best self. It’s that simple. And that hard. By now you may be getting an inkling that life-force is as fierce as it is beautiful, and that we are all participants in an unknown journey. You may have suffered losses. You may be in the grip of behaviours you cannot seem to get on top of. You may be hanging on to something toxic. The immense task of staying sane requires guidance and support. Sara provides exactly that.  Therapy is a GROWTH process resulting in Gains and Benefits

Trauma Resolution

Trauma has many faces, and if it is not adequately processed, it continues to be persistently debilitating to human function and spirit.  Whether a single shattering incident, or prolonged exposure to deprivation or endangerment, optimal development is arrested and capacity in personal, interpersonal, and professional domains is inhibited.  These impacts can be alleviated by trauma… Read more »
