A Space to Thrive LAUNCH

I'm thrilled to announce the launch of my forthcoming private practice, A Space to Thrive for counseling, coaching, cultivating, and creating.  

In 2018 I will be relocating to San Antonio, Texas where I will open A Space to Thrive.  I love the diversity and creativity of San Antonio and I am so excited to move to a city that has a more open and affirming attitude toward mental thealth...San Antonio even has a  professional association just for Licensed Marriage and Family Therapists!  What a gift to connect and collaborate with other colleagues in my discipline!

I have cherished much of my time in Waco and am so grateful for the community, the art, and the *Enrichment* I have been gifted during my years there.  Now it is a season for me to get on with #reclaimingmytime and birthing my own dreams and vision for a healing, nurturing, and creative counseling practice.  

My clinical passion is working with survivors of complex and developmental trauma, healing from psychological, emotional, and spiritual/religious abuse.  This work gives me life and I am bowled over with gratitude that I get to bear witness to the healing, recovery, and restoration of some of the bravest souls I've ever met.  To learn more about all the services and ideas I have to share, please visit my website at: A Space to Thrive

As a survivor of complex trauma and traumatic grief and loss, I have the personal experience of healing and recovery as well as my professional training (Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist). I have walked the dark path of despair and anger. I have and continue to do the grueling work of healing and maintaining wellness. I practice what I talk about with my clients and use my own experiences to inform and deepen my empathy. I have been razed to the ground and like a Phoenix, I have risen up out of the ashes.

I invite you to join me on the journey in any of the following ways:

*Financial support--to invest capital for start-up costs.  You could sponsor a couch!  Or a therapy chair.  You could sponsor some paints and canvases for my therapeutic art studio.  Maybe you'd like to sponsor 1 year of membership to a professional association or a year's advertising with Psychology Today.  Any amount is a generous gift from your heart to water my DreamSeeds.

*Wit and Wisdom--I love learning from those who have gone before me.  If you have opened a therapy practice or started a small business and have some insights you wish you had known at the beginning, I will delight in learning from  your process.

*Thriving Thoughts Blog Contributor--I'd love to share your voice on my blog whether you are a mental health professional with a passion to share, or a creative leader with an exercise or challenge, or an entreprenure with savvy tips for sustainability, I'd love to hear from you!

*Encouraging words and cheering section--I believe that Together we Thrive and that creating anything of inspirational and sustainable value takes a community.  If you are excited about this project, please let me know!   Being a Dreamkeeper is a challenge and there are many difficult days scattered amongst the glowing moments of utter elation.  Your words of encouragement are like hope snacks and tiny lights that help me see the way ahead.
