I am so glad you found me! There's so much I want to share. Take your time, look around, and learn all there is to know about River's Journey Wellness. I hope you take a moment to drop me a line if you have any questions.
I have been a therapist for over 22 years; working with men and women seeking support for mental health and substance use disorders. Over the years, I 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 into 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. And 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. All sexual orientations and gender expressions are welcome in my office.
Still feeling the nudge for my business to grow and adapt to fully align with my concept of support and growth, I expanded services to include River's Journey Wellness, showcasing my training as a Reiki Master and desire to move outside of the clinical constraints of Clinician to gently guide as a Life Coach.
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!
Love, light and blessings,
P.S. I believe in equality. I believe diversity is what makes life so beautiful and rich.
All sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions are welcome in my office.
I believe we are stronger; together. And you are stronger than you realize.
You have a place in this world that is uniquely yours and I am so honored you decided to share your path with me.
