“I focus on and teach my clients how our body’s reactions to stress cause the emotions we feel, affect how we behave and contribute to many of our physical ailments. Stress is caused by believing our physical safety or safety of our sense of connection, belonging or having autonomy is at risk. It is very gratifying when my clients use the information, understanding, safety, acceptance and autonomy they learn from me to heal and thrive.” – Richard Featherly, LLMSW
