All of us have traveled a path of challenges that have left us feeling overwhelmed, stuck and scared. Life sometimes hurts in ways we aren't sure how to explain or fix, and we've lost our meaning and purpose. Are you in that place? Do you feel empty, afraid, alone? Perhaps you've experienced an event that has deeply changed your life, and your beliefs are shattered. Reaching for light in the dark is a sign of your resilience. Come rest, be nurtured, and experience healing in a uniquely personalized journey, woven with an abundance of compassion, connection, warmth, and authenticity.

My specialty is in expressive therapies, where you will have the option to experience fresh, creative, and meaningful healing methods using art, Journal Therapy, Sandtray, Play Therapy, combined with familiar and traditional approaches. We are different here, where therapeutic relationships are held in reverence and healing opportunities will actually be fun!
