Individual and family counseling services for adults, adolescents, and couples facing issues such as depression, anxiety, conflict, loss, divorce, and life transitions are some of the areas of focus you will find among our clinicians.
The Daring Way™ is a highly experiential methodology based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown. The method was designed for work with individuals, couples, families, work teams, and organizational leaders. It can be facilitated in clinical, educational, and professional settings.
During the process facilitators explore topics such as vulnerability, courage, shame, and worthiness. Participants are invited to examine the thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that are holding them back and identify the new choices and practices that will move them toward more authentic and wholehearted living. The primary focus is on developing shame resilience skills and developing daily practices that transform the way we live, love, parent, and lead.

"Since my first introduction to Brené’s work back in 2012, I've seen the power of owning your story both personally and professionally. We as a culture do not talk about shame and yet we feel it in all areas of our lives. Through this coursework, we can learn to show up, be seen and live brave together." - Rachael L. Dunkel
Natalie Mica has been studying Brene’s work since she heard her TED talk vulnerability in 2013. She completed her Clinical Daring Way™ training in 2017 and is currently a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Candidate (CDWF-Candidate). Natalie is also trained in the Rising Strong™ methodology.
“Shame is universal, and I recognize its ability to impact my personal and professional life and the lives of my clients. At our deepest level, we all long for connection. Our fears of vulnerability and of not being enough often hinder the internal resources we need to live courageously and create the very connection we long for in our lives. Brene’s work helps us to look at our story, show up in our lives, and make the changes that allow us to live wholeheartedly with authenticity, self-compassion, and courage. –Natalie Mica
