Some of my core beliefs:

Marla Joy Hoffman, MAPC, CAGS, NCC, LMHC, LPC

By healing our past, we can integrate it as wisdom into our present and future!


By connection within ourselves and each other, we have a feeling of belonging!


Change is a part of life.  The more we embrace change instead of brace against it, the gentler life is!


By learning how to be mindful, we are present in our life; neither in the past, nor in the future!
