Journey Within is a unique therapy practice.  A strengths-based patient centered approach is paired with an interactive twist which might include any of the following: Art for non verbal exploration (optional), Private IMAX theater for meditation and relaxation, EMDR, interactive problem solving, with optional reading and focused work in between sessions.  Therapy should be an "experience" through which we learn who we are coming to a peace place to grow (not just have a conversation).  In my practice - the patient is the captain of our ship - we go in what ever direction they decide - my job is to guide that ship and give the tools for smooth sailing.  I'm the first mate so to speak.  Therapy modalities vary depending on the person - not everything works for everybody.


EMDR is used to help remove subconscious blocking (best treatment for anxiety, trauma, stress), Art for non-verbal expression and music to sooth and boost the spirit. These are all optional depending on what the client would like to do. 


"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 discovering your true self and growing in a safe environment.  Therapy should be a positive experience.


Different research-based approaches: Psychotherapy, CBT, EMDR, DBT skill training, EFT - Tapping, Psycho-education, Parent coaching, TFT, journaling, family therapy using family systems, motivational interviewing, and more.   Creative expression can be added using paint, clay, multimedia art, journaling, creative writing, role play, chalk, graffiti painting, paint pours 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."
