Life can be overwhelming and disappointing - and that's without a global pandemic! Sometimes unexpected events happen that shake us, leave us powerless and hypervigilant. Sometimes we look at our relationships and wonder, "how did we get here? I never imagined so much pain would come after our wedding day."
Whatever is weighing on your heart, you don't have to do this alone. You can explore solutions and find relief with counseling in a safe, compassionate, confidential environment.
Be empowered and supported on your journey to a fuller, richer life. Call now to set up a counseling appointment: 314-877-8153.

St. Louis Marriage Counseling
No one gets married thinking, "This'll never last... this person is the worst... I can't stand them!" Wounds left untended and unexplored fester and fuel the fire of conflict. Using books, and regular therapy can save your marriage. Marriage counseling can make your bond stronger and better than ever!
Trama has been defined as a sudden, life-altering event. Trama can often lead to PTSD. Through research EMDR (eye-movement desensitization and reprocessing) has been shown to cure PTSD and give people their life back. EMDR therapy is also used for negative beliefs about ourselves that rule our lives. Contact an EMDR Therapist today.
