Treatment Issues

Treatment Models


Within a short amount of time, using suggested breathing techniques and self-assessment exercises, I became motivated to look at life in a much different perspective and I began the process of shedding different habits and negative thinking from years past.



I really felt comfortable and safe to communicate my inner concerns. Every week I could really feel and acknowledge the positive change and progress. I greatly appreciate the time and guidance I received. Thank you.



I feel like I have learned some useful skills to help me cope with anxiety as it happens which is the reason I came. Thank you so much! Faye is very easy to talk to and made me feel very comfortable in this process.


Working with Faye has been a wonderful experience. We were able to work together and meet my goals, and I really felt safe, heard and hopeful. I've truly enjoyed my experience here and highly recommend Faye!
