I just moved to a new city to do what I thought was my calling (teaching). It was stressful saving up and getting loans to move out here; I’m 7 hours away from home. finding a place to live was stressful enough, and now that I’m settled in one place I need to start preparing for the new school year. It’s my first year and I feel so lost. I do t know anyone else out here. I brought my sister with me but it’s almost as she wasn’t here. She works all day. My boyfriend came to visit for about a week, the first week I moved out here, it was the best week I’ve had. I was happy and bubbly all the time, but as soon as he left everything came down weighing on my shoulders. I feeprobably so much pressure, I don’t haveonly to buy supplies and decor for my classroom. I’m behind on trainings, I wasnt able to move down here (financially) almost to when school is starting. I miss my bf and the support he made me feel when he was out here. I talk to him about how I feel and i cry, but I don’t want him to feel uncomfortable. It may be too much (btw we just started dating a couple of months ago). I really see a future with him so I feel like I shouldn’t scare him off with all this anxiety and depression. I constantly feel the need to be around someone aND talk talk talk about my sadness. I’ve never experienced cedar this level of anxiety/depression in my life and I’m scared.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
I have been a lifelong student of spirituality and psychotherapy which informs my approach and blends the best of both worlds. The feedback I get from clients is that through our work together, their lives change in ways they never imagined possible. Empathy, hope and humor are some of the qualities I bring to sessions.

Are you experiencing more stress and anxiety than ever before? Are there massive changes underway in your life that are keeping you up at night? Have you been thinking back to the past and wondering if you are finally ready to deal with difficult events that have left you scarred? Any one of these situations can have you wanting to run away from your emotions and continue stuffing the hard stuff way down down deep inside. But you’ve handled things this way before, and you are convinced that it’s time for a change.
Struggling with how much your world has changed in such a short time? Feeling anxious, on edge, and uncertain? If your anxiety has been triggered by current events, you are certainly not alone. But in some ways, that makes it harder. Everyone is worried and hurting, including you. You can also feel it tapping into some old stuff, magnifying how lousy you feel. You have worked so hard in your life to feel in charge and on top of things but now feel out of control and helpless. It's not a good feeling. Even worse, your usual coping mechanisms -- going to yoga class, getting coffee with a co-worker, or throwing yourself into work -- have been taken away for now. There's no real end in sight and you're not sure what to do. We understand how awful that feels and want to help. The therapists at Nova Terra Therapy work both online and in-person to help clients like you to identify and deal with both old and new anxiety triggers. We use a variety of approaches but are particular fans of blending cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and EMDR. Using this combination, we help you to get at what's happening in both your mind and your body when it comes to anxiety-provoking or traumatic events. We've found that these two heavily-researched evidence-based treatments are particularly effective at giving our clients efficient, long-standing relief.

If you're looking for extra support and guidance to help you know yourself better or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
