Heal & Renew was created as a place to land when you need inspiration, an uplift, or an extra rung on the ladder to your next step.  Here, we explore topics related to personal growth and healing of all kinds, physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual.   Healing goes beyond the traditional idea of illness to cure, sick to well, and sad to happy.  Life is meant to be lived in shades of gray, or better yet, in various hues of the rainbow.

Healing is the perpetual state of growth we all find ourselves in at different times in our lives, whether it’s the transition out of an old job or relationship, searching for broader answers to physical or emotional conditions, or simply a restlessness and desire for new and unexplored horizons.  Renewal is that phase where we begin to see the changes in our thoughts, emotions, views, and actions manifest outwardly into greater well-being, self-acceptance, peace, and love, including more satisfying relationships and career paths.  This site is meant to boost your own individual path in whatever direction you design for yourself!


About Tara Cuskley, Psy. D.

img_8057I am a psychologist and blogger living in New York City, passionate about integrating Eastern and Western healing modalities and enhancing the conversation surrounding the view of true well-being as a holistic endeavor, including physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components, each one incomplete without the others.

I currently work with adults and children in a private therapy practice in Manhattan, integrating cognitive behavioral therapy, positive psychology, mindfulness tools, and energy healing techniques to target individuals’ needs for personal growth and symptom reduction.
