Are you feeling…
I can help you begin to develop an awareness about your thinking, feeling and behaving and how they are connected.
Let’s get curious about what is really going on and why. Choosing to become vulnerable will require you to surrender to uncertainty.
You need guidance on feeling regretful, pissed, hurt, angry, worried, heartbroken, fearful, overwhelmed, and in pain.

“We came to see her when we were about to get a divorce. It was bad. I had been sleeping on the couch and we were not talking. Our marriage was hanging on a thread. Alana was so kind. You can tell that she really cared. She taught us both a new way to talk and understand each other. I learned to not be so defensive. I can honestly say Alana saved us and our marriage “
