Taking a first step towards help

The wilderness is healing, a therapy for the soul.

– Nicholas Kristaf


Winston Churchill

Success is not final;
Failure is not fatal.
It is the courage to continue that counts.


Michele Ruiz

If people are doubting how far you can go,
go so far that you can’t hear them anymore.


Better Days Ahead

It can be overwhelming dealing with the circumstances of life. Sometimes challenges can be so high that it’s hard to see ahead to better days.

Here’s the good news: you don’t have to do this alone.


Think about the trees. The ones who stand alone are less likely to remain standing with the approach of a strong wind. Trees standing together with roots entwined in the forest have far more potential to stand against the same strong wind. We as people are no different against the “negative winds of life” in that we do better with supports.

Research supports this belief that those who have a network of support recover better from mental health struggles than those trying to do it alone. And YOU are now taking the first step at expanding your support network by looking for some professional support. It is our goal that through our work together, you will experience rising hope, and that tomorrow will be better than today.

We look forward to meeting you.
