2020 threw us all for a loop.

Closing my office on Golfside Drive was a huge decision in March 2020, but of course looking back it was the right thing to do.

2020 brought a lot of losses to many people.

It was time to start over.

As many of you know, starting over, is often the beginning of the best things you could ever imagine.

Mobile therapy, and the ability to reach more people in a wider range of places always appealed to me. Perhaps my early years as a paramedic induced a desire to be out in communities instead of sitting in one office. In preparation to add a mobile office, I was already renovating an RV for that purpose. The events of 2020 accelorated those plans with the advent of widely practiced virtual telemedicine.

 

As quarantine dragged on, I worked out of my RV, and day trips allowed the mobile office format to be tested in a variety of locations,(while still complying with the rules of quarantine). The benefits of a self-contained RV became even more meaningful when so many places were shut down!

Each trip I took during quarantine, was a small adventure, that many clients benefited from hearing about, because it helped relieve their own fears.

For example, we found out together that the Florida border "closing" was actually a lady sitting on a folding chair at a converted weigh station, asking what state you just came from.

Life became less frightening the more I lived it. And reported back.

I also realized, as so many of us have, that life is so precious and so short, we must honor our dreams. Time can and will run out. 

Which brings us to today. 

Since December, 2020 Little Buddy and I have been traveling full time in our Mobile Office.

We do virtual sessions from the RV  and every week or two share our new location and scenery.  Links are included in the pics below for more info on each destination.

It's a joy to hear stories from my clients about their own memories related to these places and others. 

I've shared the ways I've had to overcome my own fears. I remember being scared of Florida bears but wow, Northern Michigan seems to have quite a few of them!

Little Buddy, weighing in at a couple ounces over 13lbs, has been a true hero. He is a courageous & energetic hiker and he does it all barefoot!

So whether you're currently a client, returning after a break, or

brand new,

Welcome!

Glad you're here as we journey this

winding road together!

See you soon!
