Space Between Counseling
Sponsoring a harmony of 7 cicadas

We named our counseling practice {Space Between} Counseling Services because we all need to have a peaceful, safe place to pause and reflect in the midst of our busy lives between the chaos + rigidity. Our goal is to help you find the spaces of FLOW between sessions.

The times of transition, the moments between action and reaction, the distance that might be growing between you and your inner peace OR maybe you and your partner… these are the spaces between that are calling out for your attention.

SBCS is here to help you hold that space and create meaningful change that helps align your expectations with your growth.
