We share Family Alchemy as a way of approaching the challenges of being in a family. The family is a container that holds each person. When the container is brought into different conditions or stresses, the elements inside react with each other. A transformation begins.
Growing the Gold
All the magic happens inside the family to grow the gold of the mind, spirit, and soul of each of its members. Our mission is harmonizing our family by bringing them into the vibration of the one heart through adventures in counseling.
In an individual therapy session, clients will explore their patterns of thought and behavior. You may find the right therapist for you among the members of our team. Together we create a plan to meet your wholeness from a strengths-based perspective.
Couples and Family Therapy
The relationship dynamics we engage in set the tone in our homes. When we know we have the power to communicate as a couple, we stand strong. Please check out our resources to support your journey, and book a call with us.
Groups provide vivid containers for what needs attention in us. The focus is the whole, not the individual. We facilitate process-oriented group therapy sessions throughout the year including a support group for moms, wilderness therapy, and couples counseling fishbowl events.

Our Approaches are
a Rich Basket
We are a team of therapists and facilitators, each with unique backgrounds sharing our depth and breadth of practices. Our work is to hold space for you to see clearly where the places of conflict root and are looking for attention to be integrated.
Our relational approach involves laughter and story-telling. We have found there is an undeniable influence our narratives have on our well being. Imagine telling the story like it is all happening for you and you are amazed at the magical way what you need has always come for you to grow through the beginnings and endings, over and over again.
For each of us the role we co–create comes with a prescription of expectations we can take very seriously. Our self concept can be easily bruised when we are attached. The ability to laugh at oneself is a great liberation to the energy that tries to be “perfect” at what each decides perfect is. We are here to enjoy ourselves and share our unique gifts. The idea of ourselves can be very insulating and comforting, so the truth can be triggering. So let’s consider Triggers are meant for you. Will you hurt or heal? How you respond is your power. We believe in your ability to grow true and be the purest version of you.
Methods we use include:
Client-centered therapy, interpersonal relational therapy using DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy), CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy), hypnosis, kundalini yoga, nature-based inspired therapy, strengths-based models, Jungian techniques and shadow work, Adlerian, intuitive–based cardology, astrology and human design, tarot cards and runes, ritual work, etc.
Seasonal Offerings for what you’re searching for…
Parenting can be tough stuff! All is revealed in the mirrors of the divine teachers our children came here to be for us. We can guide them by offering curiosity and encouragement to the gifts they are here to share. As parents we may also need support in accepting the choices of others and learning how we may have grown attached to outcomes that are somewhat distorted. Our team is passionate about supporting parents in their journey to raise families.
Often the tension that arises in relationships is caused by the lack of shared meaning and purpose. This will cause conflicts in people even when they are being authentic. Many couples do not realize that their goals and purposes are misaligned and are completely surprised when they begin to get resentful. Creating a shared meaning and purpose for life can heal a relationship. This can be done when the clients revise the narrative, their stories that explain who they are and how they arrived where they are in the present.
Allowing ourselves to slow down, connect to our bodies, the natural world and its cycles is essential for cultivating peace of mind. We are able to show up better when we take care of ourselves. Nurturing our connection to nature is an essential part of maintaining our center to grow in tune with the seasons. Away from our daily routines, fully present to the beauty of being alive, we cultivate spaciousness in our hearts and our minds. Meditating in nature, listening to its wisdom, often helps us recharge and get a new perspective so we can heal from what we go through.
