Bev Major is joining Safe Space Counseling. Bev has graciously accepted Amy's offer to partner the Safe Space Counseling Practice, and will begin officially seeing clients this week!
Bev is a Licensed Professional Counselor and a Heart-Centered Hypnotherapist who has experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and couples. Bev works hard to provide a warm, caring, non-judgmental environment that allows you to be yourself and focus on the issues that brought you to counseling.
Bev specializes in grief, depression, anxiety, self-esteem, trauma, ADHD, parenting and relationship issues. If desired, Bev can use Heart-Centered hypnotherapy to address those problems by going deeper into your subconscious where the key to the problem may lie.
Please join us in welcoming Bev to Safe Space, and we look forward to having her as our new colleague and partner!
