Our Heart 

About Us

Congrats on taking the first brave step to changing things!    

Every step toward change requires an additional dose of courage.  So, before you take another breath congratulate yourself on beginning the process of therapy.  You are working on healing and evolving, which will deeply and profoundly improve your life and positively influence those around you.  Reframe your nervousness for excitement because you are taking forward steps on the path of healing, wellness and achieving the best self personally, relationally and professionally.


It's Okay to Not be Okay and Difficult Roads Lead to Beautiful Destinations!

It’s okay to not always be okay.  Life is like the ocean.  It's relentless and throws some crazy curve balls at us that we can neither prepare for or always successfully navigate through on our own.  Life gets hard. Life has us willingly or unwillingly waving the white flag, as we feel it's impossible to climb out of our current chaos and catch our breath.  Coming to the end of self and/or to the end of our circumstances is not a bad thing. As it can allow one the opportunity to create new exciting chapters in your book of life. Having you look at life differently. Experience life differently. Process life differently.  These are the things we help people work through and towards during our time together. The process is shorter/longer for some than others, as the journey to self is unique for everyone but it’s a journey full of: Adventure. New beginnings. Surprises. Challenges. Growth both wanted and unwanted.  

At Traveling Light Counseling we pride ourselves in

Being a home away from home at least that's how our clients describe Traveling Light.  A place where you can catch your breath, unload,  off load, relax and become vulnerable with down to earth counselors that keep it real and aim to help you and/or family TRAVEL the journey of life lighter and with a renewed perspective in order to walk through life's transitions and difficulties as the BEST VERSION OF SELF!
