beginnings


These are the values that guide all aspects of my practice and my role as a therapist.

Connection

That all of my clients would know and experience that I am with them throughout this whole process

Hospitality

An open invitation to be real and to share as much or as little as you would like;

to know that when you arrive, the time and space is prepared for you

Impact

That your story and healing would in turn help and serve others;

that your new "home" would welcome others who may need a place to go

Restoration

Experiencing genuine transformation and healing because of what you invest in this process;

that relationships would be rebuilt and hope would be renewed

Wholeness

Finding that the growth you experience in therapy begins to spread and affect all areas of life

Come in- how can I help?

Some different options about where we can start

Letting go of what needs to be released and discovering what needs to be found

Learning new ways to care for family, and for kids and teens to share with their parents
