Heidi Ryan Life Stone Counseling
“Life is meant to be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
– Soren Kierkegaard

I know life can be difficult, but I believe in my clients; and I believe my clients can be successful with their goals.  I know we can work together to find solutions to make each day more positive.  I want my clients to remember therapy is a journey, and I am happy to walk that journey with them.  The most rewarding part of my job is to see the breakthroughs that happen with my clients.
I am not here to judge you or push an agenda on you, I am here to support you with your needs and teach you the skills that can help you be effective in your life.
