Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Caren Shapiro "I help people resolve anxiety and depression, particularly in the context of, self-esteem, body image, relational difficulties and creative blocks. I'm down to earth, easy to talk to, non-judgmental and extremely interactive. I work to minimize and eliminate the shame and self-anger people frequently feel about themselves and their lives. I create a safe, comfortable environment for individual/ couples. I believe in the human capacity for change. Tomorrow can be infinitely better than today!"
