Our Philosophy

When suffering from any mental and emotional instability it is difficult to initiate and navigate change.  To begin the journey of change means starting where you are; honoring you as in individual and your own perspective and  understanding of yourself and the world.  Sometimes that simply means making an appointment for therapy and actually attending the first session. 

Through education and skill building, a foundation is built to then form a readiness to begin the journey.  Everyone’s journey is different and unique.  Understanding the science behind trauma and addiction, and the impact of various life experiences, are critical elements in treatment.  

Also of importance is the deep connection between the mind and the body.   Our minds and bodies are so amazing!  Treating both the mind and the body with gentle kindness is a very important part of healing.
