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 in the field of mental health and substance use disorders for over 21 years. I was trained to look at all clinical interactions with an analytic eye; based on research findings, theoretical orientations and various therapeutic models of care. These clinical interactions were meant to assist clients in alleviating their emotional pain, navigating difficult life situations and creating new coping strategies that would support the client's desired change.
I worked in a variety of settings within the not-for-profit world, mainly with older adolescents and adults. 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, over time it also felt like their 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 program.
After many years into my own personal path of discovery; I left the not-for-profit world. I made the conscious decision to work with clients in a way that felt more fully aligned with my conceptualization of care and support. This "new" work is considered Holistic Wellness; melding strategies that support the mind, body and spirit of my clients. I began incorporating Energy Psychology and Reiki into services, tapping into my intuitive side of care. And moved towards providing supportive coaching services to foster my client's personal growth, renewed spiritual connection and positive change. Holistic. Intuitive. Support.
I am so glad our paths have connected us and I hope I can provide services to assist you on your journey to wellness!
