Recovery is… authenticity.

Recovery takes true authenticity, the ability to be a genuine version of oneself despite past, present, or future obstacles that are faced.

“Here’s what is truly at the heart of wholeheartedness: worthy now. Not if. Not when. We’re worthy of love and belonging now. Right this minute. As is.”-Brene Brown

Josie practices from a humanistic, person-centered approach,
acknowledging that her clients are the expert of their lives, while
