Movement Towards Balance

Mental health issues and substances abuse challenges throw people off-balance of their true contributing selves. Most have traumatic experiences moving their compass off in a negative way.

In the process of looking for balance there must be movement. We are helping people trying to come back into balance, of head and heart.
