Tavernier (pronounced tavern - eer) is the name of a town where my family used to have a vacation home. I visited the home so often that there is a room named after me.
By naming my practice after the town, I hope to bring the peace, happiness and warmth that I felt at the home to my work with clients. This will create an open and comfortable environment to begin the therapeutic process and create positive change.
Starting the therapeutic process can be daunting and difficult. It can also be an exciting time of exploration and growth, and I am looking forward to being part of your journey! I believe that growth only happens when we are our most authentic selves, which is something I hope to help you achieve.
Thank you for taking time to get to know me!

About the Logo
The circle in the middle represents the center of the therapeutic process – you, the client. The lines underneath the circle are reaching outwards. These represent the therapeutic relationship we form - we are reaching for each other in order to help and to receive help. Lastly, the three outer circles represent multiple elements: the layers of support encircling each of us, the protection we can create around ourselves and radiating waves of health and healing.
All of these elements are important to me personally and professionally. They are indicative of the approach and philosophy of Tavernier Therapy Group.
