Marissa GeraciAbout 6 years ago I was sitting at my desk at a large, corporate America investment firm. I was miserable and felt myself dying a little bit each day in that cubicle. I knew that I wanted to make a change, and I even knew what I wanted that change to be. But it seemed really scary and basically impossible. I had a good friend who told me I owed it to myself to at least try. So I did. One very small step at a time.

Now I'm a licensed therapist who still doesn't have it all figured out, but I'm a lot happier. I want to share what I've learned both on my own journey, and on the ongoing journey to help my clients. I strongly encourage adventure as a non-pharmaceutical prescription for things like anxiety, depression, and stress. Your adventure could be taking a leap of faith and starting a new career, exploring a new city, or walking into a yoga class for the first time.

Adventure awaits...
