Healing mental health

wish you were happier?
you can be.

At Kuya, we treat mental health conditions like depression, anxiety, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), overall life dissatisfaction, and more with a new model of healing called Transformational Medicine. This approach uses a variety of therapeutics to support your brain, body, mind, community, environment, and relationships so that you can feel better, create deeply meaningful relationships, and come into your power.

we've been where you are
and we know how to help

Do you find yourself asking:

  • Why do I feel so bad?
  • What's wrong with me?
  • Why do I keep getting in fights with my _____ ?
  • Why am I so angry?
  • Why is my life so chaotic?
  • Why do I attract dissatisfying relationships?
  • Why can’t I seem to get ahead in my career?

you can heal.
we're here to support you.

Our minds can feel like our worst enemy, becoming a broken record of ruminations on the negative such as fears, painful experiences, and thoughts of not being good enough. Regardless of your current state, one thing is certain—you want something more, something better for your life, and you’re curious if there’s anything out there that can help.

I’m wrestling with depression

You feel a pervasive numbness, hopelessness, and/or excruciating complacency that seems to suck the joy out of life. You may even have been scared by thoughts of suicide that appear out of nowhere.

My anxiety is debilitating

A cocktail of stress chemicals courses through your body and you feel like you’re on the edge of panic. You can feel your heart beating through your chest and your mind won’t stop looping bad thoughts.

PTSD makes it impossible to live normally

You’re constantly nervous that a looming, unavoidable trigger will shut you down, making it nearly impossible to move through your day in a peaceful, productive way.

I’ve been diagnosed with another condition

Maybe your collection of undesirable symptoms has been given another label, but you are stuck in a state that feels limited where you often wish that you had more happiness.

Something’s off, but it’s not that bad

You may think how you feel is not that severe, or traditional labels of depression and anxiety don’t resonate with you, but you still feel like something is wrong and that your life could be better.

I don’t know what’s wrong with me

There seems to be some mysterious force working against you, limiting your happiness. You keep wondering why others seem to have it better than you. Why can’t you attract the perfect partner? Why do you continue to land in conflicts? Maybe you can’t seem to understand why you’ve hit a plateau in your career.
