About

Are you looking for some direction?

Do you want more peace and less struggle?

Are anxiety or the effects of trauma impacting your days?

Do you want to manage {fill in the blank} better?

If so, then you are in the right place!

We are so glad you have found us!

We get it. We have been there. We at Breathing Space do not do it alone and you don't have to either!

We are here to offer support and guidance as you own your one true life.

We want to walk with you as you dip your toe into the swell of emotion or dive right into the depth of yourself.

We begin where you are and move toward balance through your conscious connection with all levels of yourself. We work with you to gain insight and understanding about your life and offer tools to help you seek balance.

Our aim is to help you get to the underlying belief structures that are causing disturbances in your life. We want you to sink in and listen to your body. To that voice that has been silenced. To the space where YOUR truth lies.

We believe that everyone can heal and thrive in their lives.

That means YOU!

We welcome your struggles with body image, prenatal and postpartum issues, grief, anxiety, difficult transitions, mid-life challenges, motivation, and trauma.

In addition to insight-oriented talking therapy, we invite you to consider the use of art-making, movement, role-playing, writing, EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique or tapping), and other body-centered modalities in your process of healing.

The therapists at Breathing Space support your journey of self-REdiscovery and encourage you to honor your inner wisdom.

May our work together open your heart and ignite your spirit so that you can begin to live your best life!
