Paula Fistein



Do you feel like you’ve lost control of your life? Does it seem like something else is in charge, such as an addiction, codependency, or emotional struggle? Dependencies and other mental health struggles can leave you feeling trapped and miserable. I help people who want to heal from problems like alcohol or drug misuse, family conflicts, trauma, grief, and more. This time of your life is real, painful, and significant. However, you don’t have to stay in this moment forever. No matter what you’re going through, you can feel empowered again. You can heal from the past as you discover a happier, freer future.

Depression, and anxiety not only affect the mind, but also affects the body. They can take away your sense of security and safety. I use evidence-based therapies and techniques like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to help you resolve these issues. You can find balance instead of just feeling too overwhelmed or too numb.

When you’ve been through horrible things, it’s common to feel hopeless. It takes courage to ask for support. I believe that you already have that courage, and that you can make a choice to fight for yourself. You can truly experience hope, love, and joy again. I look forward to helping you heal and create a life worth living. Contact me today to get started.
