Walking in the woods - sitting by a river all part of our experiece







Journey Within is a unique therapy studio that addresses each individual's needs using a strengths-based patient centered approach with a interactive twist.  Because therapy should be an "experience" through which we learn and grow not just a conversation.


Imax style room for relaxation while doing therapy, EMDR to help remove subconscious blocking, Art for non-verbal expression and music to sooth and boost the spirit. 


"We are all unique individuals that can create a life that supports who we are and what we need in order to be successful and feel fulfilled - we just need the tools to learn how to manage our own lives

to the fullest." 


Whether you are seeking Individual therapy, couples therapy or family therapy - this is a place you can relax and enjoy learning and growing in an intimate environment.


Therapy can consist of different approaches depending on the individual(s) and the need: Psychotherapy, CBT, EMDR, Exposure Therapy, DBT skill training, Psycho-education, Parent coaching, TFT, journaling, family therapy using family systems with love and logic, motivational interviewing, and more.   Creative expression can be added using paint, clay, multimedia art, journaling, creative writing, role play, chalk, grafitti painting and more.

The greatest journey in life we have is the JOURNEY WITHIN to our own personal universe to learn to become the Masters of our own selves and create the best expression of our lives possible.

"I invite you to come and explore the greatest part of your life experience - your SELF."

Your regular appointment will be saved for you.

If anyone would like to establish care we will

begin online and transfer to in house when

things are declared clear for us to reconvene with

face to face interactions.

My heart and my prayers go out to all of us 

at this time and I am confident that if we

adhere to our government's guidelines, both

State and Federal, we will all remain healthy and safe.

Let's help each other pass over this trying


This is about the "we"

not the "me"

We should all pull together and

help each other.
