Our Team

Since 1990 we have helped people struggling with trauma, grief, depression, anxiety and those at risk for suicide. Our staff understands the importance of creating connection with each person while scanning for and addressing suicidal pain.  In eliciting the story we illuminate patterns and origins of behaviors in order to both avert a crisis and inspire growth.  We know that ultimately the person we are working with has answers to their life situation. By tuning in to their inner wisdom and encouraging expression of the authentic self, those solutions may be revealed. Discovering a sense of purpose through the revelation will result in feeling more self-accepting and confident.
