A Live Free session is not just your typical ‘talk therapy’, but a safe space for you to reduce stress, increase coping strategies, while strengthening relationships and healing trauma. We support you on your journey, while bringing resiliency to the surface of exploration through creative and innovative approaches.
The Live Free model is rooted in a holistic approach to wellness with an understanding that all aspects of your health and wellbeing are interconnected. This approach allows the various aspects of ‘who you are’ at home, work, school and relationships to become apart of our sessions to develop the most effective, well-rounded solutions.
