FOR HEALING & TRANSFORMATION
ANESTIS, Certified Reiki Master, Life Coach
is committed to guiding those with chronic illness or disease
to gather strength, find hope, and become resilient so they
can pursue life regardless of body pain, lack of sleep and
stress. Her experience working with many amazing clients guiding
them to Stop Giving Up and Start Living Up has defined her
mission and commitment to develop an easy plan that will have
you living life fearlessly on your terms again, free from
being run by your illness.
Her path to becoming a Master Energy Healer
became clear when she overcame Depression and Anxiety. After
entering into treatment with a therapist and medication she
started to pursue holistic therapies that would support her
after her treatment program ended. She developed her spiritual
foundation and through exploration of finding balance with
the Mind, Body, and Spirit discovered Life Coaching and Reiki.
It was with the addition of these methods that her physical,
mental and emotional healing skyrocketed. She learned to go
beyond any physical or mental limitations and do the things
that interested her most (Including learning to play ice hockey
at age 43 despite two bad knees and plantar fasciitis). Life
became fun again and she has never looked back. It became
important for her to support others that were facing physical,
mental, and emotional imbalance and help them see that healing
Charlenes passion is connecting deeply
with her clients and supporting them in knowing that when
life gets tough, its time to pause, rebalance, and find
their inner strength. Her long term study of the human thought
process, deep spiritual background, and Hospice volunteer
experience guides her to help you distill what truly matters
to you. She was trained at the most prestigious and thorough
Reiki Program in the North East as well as an ICF accredited
coaching program. Her powerful healing sessions help you to
jump start your life again and will provide you with deep
relaxation, better sleep, and less pain and will complement
any medical treatment you are already receiving. She teaches
you to balance your own energy, leaving you feeling rejuvenated,
more in control of your life with a better outlook on your

McCARTHY, LICSW, CADCII
Strengths-Based Approach, Restoring Balance and Hope
Kathy is a licensed social worker
experienced in doing group and individual work with children,
adolescents, and adults facing a variety of difficulties.
She specializes in substance abuse/dependence and domestic
violence but her experience also includes dealing with trauma,
depression, anxiety, issues of adjustment, relationship and
family dysfunction, anger, stress management, and grief.
Change is a process that we often do not
go through alone. Helping people to learn to change the way
they think through the use of cognitive behavioral therapy
techniques can empower them to improve decision making skills,
avoid maladaptive urges to self harm, and feel hope that change
is possible. Identifying strengths, providing tools, connecting
to resources and supports, and enhancing personal awareness
and self care are all important to promote growth and change.
"Everyone has their own story and journey in life. I
find it rewarding to assist others in any way I can to help
make that journey a little easier." For
more information or to schedule an appointment, call Kathy
Kirsten has been a Licensed Mental
Health Counselor for over ten years. She loves helping adults
of all ages move through issues to gain greater satisfaction
in all relationships, including the most important one: with
oneself. If our relationships are not supporting us, it can
feel like we are missing out on the sweetness of life. Kirsten
uses a cognitive behavioral approach, which is a way we gain
greater control over what happens in our lives, and access
greater choice in how we respond to events. It can help us
strengthen communication skills, deepen intimacy and heal
codependency. I believe we can grow beyond lifelong
issues; we can replace feeling overwhelmed with feeling peace
and learn to celebrate every step we take on our journey.
Treatment provided for issues of depression, anxiety, trauma,
grief and loss, self-esteem, addiction and Recovery. Read

topic of Life is one of those subjective subjects because
we each view it through our own lens and filter of experience.
The truth is we are all here for a reason and have a purpose.
We are unique, special, and provide the world with meaning.
Through our interactions with one another, our choices, and
reactions we form the realities in which we live.
Jenna started out her first
twenty years of life in a chaotic home of domestic violence
moving all over the United States. She credits her survival
to choice. She made the choice to not let what others did
to her dampen her spirit or stop her from one day doing great
things. No matter how many times people have told her she
can't do something, she has risen to accomplish that and much
more. Now Jenna shares what she has learned not only in life
but throughout her career as a Coach and Healer. The mission
she lives for is to help others manifest greatness, to teach
others so they can do for themselves, and to be there standing
strong for those who have yet to survive as a beacon of change.
