To put it simply: STRESS KILLS. We are here to provide hope and give the tools needed to reduce and/or eliminate illness that stems from chronic stress. Learning when to stay in the fight and when to let go and move on is key in reducing chronic stress!
Life continues to move forward with no regard for our current emotional state. We are taught to get up and keep moving forward. However, what happens when we never address what had us on the ground in the first place? Has the act of falling become a pattern? If so, how do we break the cycle in our current life situation?
That's where FIGHT or Flight comes in. We meet you where you are and focus on 3 areas to help:
