About Us

The Change & Healing Experience

We are dedicated to helping people heal and learn from the problems they are facing. We not only reduce symptoms but help make changes from the inside out so true change and growth can happen.

Rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach, we draw from several psychotherapy models and use books, storytelling, art, and music to help our clients. We use a holistic understanding of our clients so they can find their unique gifts and confidently share them with the world. We guide people to necessary change, growth and development. We inspire passion, boundless energy and humor which serve well working with youth and adult alike.

Our clinical therapists draw on systems and structural approaches, Jungian psychology, Zen and Tao wisdom, the wisdom of indigenous peoples and small group dynamics and processes.

We specialize with groups and with people whose past attempts to change have not worked.
