We offer artistic and therapeutic workshops for artists of all ages and skill levels.  
Our workshops are designed to help you explore creativity and healing.
We offer individual, couples, and group counseling to address a wide array of complex issues with an equally diverse group of therapeutic modalities.
Using the PowerPath method, we provide certified assessments and support to address learning difficulties and trouble at work or school.
“Come to the edge," he said.
"We can't, we're afraid!" they responded...
"Come to the edge," he said.
And so they came.
And he pushed them.
And they flew.”

    Karen and Kayla are amazing for our family. Now being non-profit, they are able to do even more for our community and surrounding areas than before. I (a woman of many words) cannot come up with the right words to tell you how grateful I am for these women and the support and love they offer. Thank you for all you do, Ladies as well as for being you!! Thank you for caring!! ❤️❤️❤️

    My daughter has benefited from a visual stress test administered by Karen Smigelski. It has been 8 months since my daughter received her blue filter, she started 6th grade with a 2nd grade reading level and a d average, she now is at a 7th grade reading level and is an A-B student. Her confidence is present, she no longer feels "stupid" and likes to go to school. We are grateful for Karen and her ability to recognize a condition that was treatable with a simple test and color lens, when not even a Pediatric Psychologist specializing in learning disabilities made the connection.

    I've been to a lot of therapists in my life - good and bad - and Karen outshines them all. For years, she has genuinely been concerned about me as a whole person, and doing everything she can to help me heal, reach my goals, and become the best version of myself.

    Went in for my first meeting today. Very impressed. The space is so beautiful and home-like. I felt valued and validated. I felt like they cared. Can't wait for my next session.
