“My relationship with Collaborative Counseling has been the catalyst for much personal growth and development over the recent years. This practice has introduced me to the importance of wellness, in all of its forms, in a peaceful and meaningful way. What started as a pointed journey to calm in one particular situation, grew into a methodology of daily practice. I couldn’t speak more highly of this group and recommend this practice to all.”
