Owner, Therapist, Yoga teacher

Priscila Norris is a holistic mental health counselor dedicated to helping people become their best selves. Priscila's approach to psychotherapy is simple: "We foster within you the power to change the things in your life that are causing you to be distressed or feel emotionally imbalanced. I believe in taking a holistic approach - or treating the whole person- to enhance your quality of life and overall well-being and in being strength-based in interventions".

Her areas of expertise include anxiety, trauma, mood disorders, sleep problems, chronic stress, and phase of life and Military lifestyle-related issues.
