Approach & Services

 “All that is gold does not glitter.  Not all those who wander are lost”. J.R.R. Tolkien

We all find ourselves in different seasons of the journey. When we are feeling sad, hopeless, confused, anxious and hurt we sometimes feel lost.  It is easy in these times to compare our journeys to others, but our journey is all our own.  We can gain insights and direction from others who have been on similar journeys, but at the end of the day our journey is our own.  This can be a hopeful, blessed and special time to become familiar with our unique story and experience. 

Maya Angelou says, “Courage is the most important of all virtues because without courage, you can’t practice any other virtue consistently”

And it’s nothing short of courage that gives you the capacity to reach for help in times of depression, anxiety, loss and lack of direction.
