Simple steps to enhance your wellness

We believe that the meaning of life is connection. Connection to others, connection to the environment, connection to spirit, connection to self – all of these connections give our lives meaning. Pathways lead us to places. Think of all the different kinds of pathways out there; roads, hiking trails, train tracks, ATV trails, to name a few. Our neural pathways pave the way for how we make our connections with others, the world and with ourselves. Pathways To Connection is formed by a group of therapists who aim to help you on the journey of exploring, understanding, and possibly even changing your pathways. We hope you will allow us to be present with you on your pathway to connection with others, with the world and most importantly with yourself.

CORE VALUES AND APPROACH

A better way to walk through life

Our core therapeutic values and approach provide guidance for us and our clients as we work together toward peaceful resolutions to some of life’s most challenging obstacles.

Safety
We provide a safe space to explore thoughts, emotions and behaviors.

Compassion
We are all human and make human choices (this includes those choices we deem “mistakes”).

Self Awareness & Discovery
In our safe space, we provide honest feedback and tools to enhance self growth.

Balance
Our environments, emotions, thoughts, behaviors and physiology all interact to influence our patterns of thoughts and behaviors.

Unconditional Regard
We believe the therapeutic relationship is where healing happens. We approach these relationships with acceptance and love.

Enhance your wellness starting today

Regardless of our position and circumstances, we all have experiences that are challenging, stressful and unfulfilling. Sometimes these challenges require extra support. Whether you are working through on-going mental health issues, having a tough time working through trauma, experiencing relationship dysfunction, or any other stressful situations, we’re here to help you work through it.
