Right now, you might be experiencing anxiety and stress. . . beyond the usual. At the time of this post, the world is in the very center of the COVID-19 pandemic. My hubby, the Girls and I are at home about 99.9% of the time (we leave the house only to walk the dogs). Since […][Continue reading…] about The first step to tackle anxiety

“I’m just going to accept that this is the way my life is now.” When I heard those words from my client, my heart sank.
