As social workers, therapists and other human service professionals, we support people as they proceed in a path of healing. As we journey with them, we often have the honor of seeing people reveal the parts of themselves that they have kept hidden behind their “curtain.”

Our blog addresses client needs and situations that you may encounter in your work. The goal is to provide information that you can use in practice and to inspire you to learn even more.

We are in the process of transitioning from our previous blog platform to this new page. All previous blog posts will be added to this page in the next 4-6 weeks. Thank you for your patience during this transition!
