A WholePerson Approach to Balanced Care
Counseling, Coaching and Wellness
Serving Children, Teens, Adults, Professionals, Executives, Work Teams, Parents/Guardians, Couples and Families Through Telehealth
Let’s face it. Life right now is complicated. It can feel overwhelming when we have so many unknowns ahead of us. For many, emotions we recognize from our past are re-surfacing or this may be your first time noticing a worry, a concern or feeling of chaos. We may feel off-balance in trying to manage ourselves, our relationships, our families and our external world. We tell ourselves we can figure things out on our own and then we can feel anger, frustration and conflict.
At Get Centered we believe we weren’t made to figure life out on our own. We are meant to work with others to problem solve and care for one another.
We have counseling for children, teens, adults, parents, couples and families. Professional coaching for individuals, executives and teams. Or maybe you’re interested in working with our health and wellness coach as an individual or couple. No matter the need we welcome you in to a non-judgmental environment that allows you a space to not have all the answers.
- Frustrated? Depressed? Full of Worry?
- Chronic Pain? Trauma? Unsure how to manage your overall health?
- Lack of Motivation or Accomplishment at home, work or school?
- Tired all the time? Looking for joy and purpose?
