"Transition is always challenging, & adolescence is one of the most challenging ones. Research shows a growing number of teens are feeling isolated and alone, leading to depression, anxiety, and unhelpful thinking patterns & behavior. Women also experience different roles, requiring transitional skills and a listening ear. This journey called life is full of ups and downs, joy and pain, being known and feeling alone... I believe that God's creation says something significant about God's character, & that in the company of others & the context of the outdoors, we are challenged to new levels of thinking and experiencing life."

At times, we feel changed by things and develop patterns of thinking or behavior to cope and move forward. The inherent value in opening our minds to our inner emotional and psychological states is at the heart of therapy. It is the experience of being able to occupy a safe space and connect with a clinician to talk about and process important information that we hold and carry with us everyday. In so doing, the therapeutic process allows for personal understanding and the development of new ideas and ways to build a fulfilling life. "
