Discover the path to RAPID change

Tap the water once and the ripples fade quickly, absorbed by the inertia of the whole.  But tap it repeatedly and the ripples reinforce each other and combine to form standing waves in water.

"When someone endures a painful experience, such as an accident, natural disaster, assault, disease, or death of a loved one, the aftermath can present an overwhelming coping challenge.  Having survived the event, one must continue to make it through every day in a world that no longer feels safe.  But pain, fear, and fatigue do not need to control and intrude on everyday life.  We offer a safe place where trauma victims may come to rebuild their fragmented view of the world and to re-establish their place in it.  Victims regain their power and, through therapy and their own inner strength, re-create their lives."
