You've Taken the Next Step Towards Finding Your Purpose

You want to find more purpose in your life.

Maybe you recognize patterns that need to change but just can’t figure out how to put change into action?

Maybe you're looking to make healthy, positive, long-lasting changes to ensure wholeness and live a satisfying life?

Maybe you’ve gotten through to the other side of a life-changing experience, and you are trying to rebuild and promote healing?

We are the practice for you. 

  • We offer a holistic approach to help decrease stress, enhance relationships and contribute to greater health and well-being. 
  • We also offer something different. We help you focus on how to build what’s positive in your life and prevent problems before they occur.
  • When needed, we use evidence-based treatment approaches applied to a wide variety of life problems.
  • We do not assume that you need the same thing as the next person in the waiting room.
  • We provide individualized approaches to help maximize your full potential.
  • Together we will help you understand and re-prioritize your values, set an action plan, and help you move onto the next, better stage of your life.

The Relationship Between Therapist and Client Is Key

The key to successful change is the relationship between the therapist and the client. While techniques are important, authenticity, warmth, and empathy are integral for people to flourish in, and outside of, counseling. We strive to treat the whole person—mind, body and spirit—to help individuals and families decrease stress, enhance relationships, and realize overall greater health and well-being.

With delicate issues at stake, therapy must be a good fit between professional and client. If KKJ is not the right fit for you, we can make referrals based on our knowledge and working relationships with others in the community.
