Krista Huyer MA, RP (Qualifying)
Psychotherapy + Counselling
Sometimes life doesn't turn out the way you expected, and you may not even know how it got to this point. Perhaps you've questioned how the stress piled up so high, without even realizing the full extent until now. Past pain you thought was handled, keeps showing up again and again. Maybe your body is reacting oddly from holding onto emotional pain with headaches, insomnia, illness or body aches. Does it feel like nobody seems to understand, or even listen to how tough things are, because on the surface life looks completely fine? Maybe you can't figure out what actually feels off, why the emotions keep coming back bigger and stronger, but you know deep down something can change. You know there can be more peace, but are just not sure how to get there?
As someone who had to learn how to put myself first, love myself in the midst of hardship, I am an attentive and empathetic listener. I work with teen girls, women, and parents who are looking to make a change, understand and love themselves deeper, and let go of pain that keeps circulating. My goal is to walk with you as we piece together the puzzle and create the change you desire. Together we will find clarity, insight, and resiliency through self-love and expression. I hope to support you to recognize your worthiness, find your inner strength, and create meaningful change so you can reach your full potential.
You don't have to face this journey of change alone. Together we will use therapeutic skills and connection to help you feel valued and heard again. I look forward to meeting you to create a space of growth and healing.
