In an effort to maintain the health and safety of clients and staff, Inspired Journey Counseling has made the decision to use only telehealth services at this time.  Your therapist will be in contact with you to provide necessary information prior to your scheduled appointment.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.  

Have a particular life obstacle you’re trying to overcome? Sometimes, seeking help from a certified expert is the best way to put things into perspective. As a committed professional Mental Health Counselor, your well-being and mental strength is my number one priority. I’m happy to guide you through all of life’s challenges with the attention and care you deserve.
