I have been a licensed and clinically trained therapist for over 25 years; working with men and women seeking support for mental health and substance use disorders. Over the years, I have assisted clients in understanding their life struggles and supported them while they moved through alleviating emotional pain, navigating difficult life situations/ relationships and creating new coping strategies to live their best lives.
The core beliefs and mission statements of most agencies that I worked for over the years was truly inspiring. I provided much needed clinical support to very vulnerable populations.
I loved my work with my clients.
However, after many years along my own personal path of discovery, I felt like I was not bringing myself authentically to my work with clients. There was part of the work missing (holistic care) and a part of me that I could not bring openly to sessions (energy/ intuitive work) while working at a community-based programs.
I left the not-for-profit world.
I threw away the cookie cutter models of traditional talk therapy.
In 2013, I opened River's Journey Counseling. An open-minded, affirming, safe, healing place for all clients; no matter where they were on their journey to change.
Still feeling the nudge for my business to grow and adapt to fully align with my concept of support and growth; my practice evolved to River's Journey Wellness. Integrating energy work with guidance and support outside of the clinical constraints of Therapist to knowingly guide as a Life Coach.
I am an empath who loves empowering other empaths. I am a highly sensitive woman who loves to encourage other highly sensitives to create soothing practices. I am student of energy work who feels strongly about working with our whole system. I am a life-long helper who loves supporting other helpers. I am enjoying my own path of well-being and love to share opportunities for raising awareness for the need of self-love and self-compassion and creating a self-care routine.
I've lovingly curated Coaching and Reiki services and packages:
Holistic. Intuitive. Support.
I am so excited the Universe guided our paths to cross. and I am honored to assist you on your journey to wellness!
