Sometimes when we begin to change we underestimate the forces holding us back from growing and healing. Change can be painful no matter how desirable or necessary the final outcome. Our team enjoys developing meaningful and healthy relationships to assist people through difficult periods in their life. Living Anew offers many therapeutic services to guide you through difficult periods and to bring about healing in those areas.
We ask our clients "what needs to happen in order for you to feel like something is accomplished?" It is like getting in to a taxi cab and the driver asks, “Where do you want to go?” And you say, “I don’t know, why don’t you drive around until I figure it out.” It can waste time and money. Every third session we will re-evaluate to see if therapy is helping. If not, we will refer you to another competent therapist.
In the course of your healing journey, we will tailor exercises and interventions to best serve you.
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Dream Interpretation, Art Therapy, and Therapeutic Hypnosis and are some of the approaches we can take to best serve you.
Cancer Supportive Services
We specialize in assisting cancer survivors through their treatment process. We will navigate you from diagnosis, through treatment and post treatment.
Diagnosis: The initial diagnosis of having cancer can be very traumatic and influence the treatment process. Intervention is vital to help you move on to treatment. We will help you through the trauma by using a simple 6 step process to alleviate the anxiety and worry.

We have one rule in marriage counseling. “You cannot tell what the other person is doing wrong, you can only tell me how you contribute to the problem.” Every session will include an exercise, tools to build a stronger relationship, and homework. We concentrate on cooperation rather than compromise. By developing conflict resolution tools, communication skills, and understanding wants and needs you will have an approach to marriage/couples counseling that best fits your situation.
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The professional just guides you through the process. We specialize in using hypnosis to manage pain/ discomfort, managing nausea, reducing stress and overcoming phobias.

Each session is recorded live with background music, a CD is made of the recording or MP3 file and is given to you to listen to daily after the session.
