OFFERINGS
Each of our offerings is a different form of holding space for individuals, groups and organizations exeriencing change, transition and transformation. 

tHERAPY

Black Chalkboard with the word "thought" on it

Life and the changes it brings can result in uncomfortable amounts of anxiety, depression, or stress that make it hard to function. Maybe you are facing a big life transition like a marriage, welcoming a new child, a divorce or grieving the loss of a loved one and are figuring out how to adjust to these new experiences and reality.

Whatever is going on, your whole complicated, beautiful self is welcome here.  Together we figure out what supports, strategies, conversations, practices, outlets, self and community care you need to navigate these experiences.

We provide Mental Health Therapy for people who are experiencing: anxiety, panic disorder, depression, anger, grief, postpartum concerns, parenting challenges, burnout and challenging life transitions. 
 

As a Licensed Social Worker, Juliana brings evidence-based practices intermingled with compassion, humor and intuition to her work.  Her therapy practice is grounded in somatic and mindfulness practices and she draws from the wisdom of a number of modalities including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy. 

 

Juliana is able to accept many Minnesota based insurance plans.

Are you a leader who has been working to shift organizational culture and dismantle oppressive structures, but often feel stuck, frustrated, confused or exhausted?

 

We provide coaching and support for leaders who are looking to feel more resources amidst challenging times, or are in discernment about their next steps personally and/or professionally.

 

Between us we have decades of experiences either leading large organizations or working closely with leaders.  We understand the intensity, joy, and struggle of being an organizational leader.

WEDDING CEREMONIES

Getting married can be one of the biggest, most joyful transitions people experience.

We work closely with couples to create a wedding ceremony that reflects the couple’s wishes, their love, and their deepest values. Through conversation and prompts, we assist couples in explicitly naming the promises they need from and will make to each other as they craft and write their vows. This is a sacred process. Thoughtfully crafted vows animate, shape, and inspire your marriage. These sacred promises are a touchstone that you can return to again and again as you navigate the difficult moments and troubled waters that visit every marriage. 
 

We partner with each couple to create a unique, memorable, meaningful, inspiring ceremony, that touches everyone present, and reminds them of the role they have in supporting your marriage. We joyfully works with couples of all faith traditions, gender identities, and orientations.  
 

When working with couples, we provide the following:

  • Two planning and preparation meetings with you (more if needed)

  • Prompts to help personalize your ceremony and begin writing your vows 

  • An expansive resource list of poetry and readings you may want to choose for the ceremony (or you can choose your own)

  • Availability by phone or email to answer any questions that come up

  • A joyful and well-coordinated wedding rehearsal

  • An original, personalized wedding ceremony (you’ll receive a copy of the ceremony) 

  • Signing the Marriage Certificate

mEMORIAL SERVICES

If you’re reading this, then most likely you’re experiencing some of the disorientation, grief, and overwhelm that can accompany death. These are the signposts of a deep and profound transition in your life, as you begin to make sense of the world and yourself with your beloved no longer in it.

 

We join you in your grief, and with an open and compassionate heart, we will invite you to share stories and memories of the deceased. In the service itself, your loved one will be remembered, as the gathered community weeps, laughs, shares stories, and commits to letting the best of the deceased live on in them. We consider it a great honor to accompany families who have lost a loved one, and to craft a service that reflects the beauty, complexity, mystery, and full humanity of the deceased.

SMALL GROUPS

Fists in Solidarity

Holding Space Small Groups are a chance for people in transition to deeply connect and reflect.  These facilitated groups offer group-specific content and participants will gain new connections,  insights and supports.

Upcoming Groups:

Transition Support Group

Beginning  June 20, 2023, Tuesdays 7PM CST, Meets online

This is a weekly group that meets four consecutive Tuesdays.  It is for individuals experiencing a transition in their life.  A transition can be a big event like the beginning or end of an important relationship, a death of a loved one or pet, a career change, or birth. They can be deeply internal, like the loss of a dream, or beginning to question a core part of your identity.  These experiences can be joyful, painful,  scary, confusing, exhausting, or all of the above.  

 

Regardless of the change you experiencing, you will be warmly welcomed in this group. You will leave with new information, insight, support and connections.

RETREATS

Upcoming Retreats

Breaking Free Men's Retreat September 29-October 1, 2023

 Minnesota, USA

Are you seeking to live a more connected life? Many men feel alone, and feel alone, isolated, and without close friends, or people they can openly talk to. This reality impacts the mental and physical health of men, which in turn impacts the well being of those close to them. 

 

We are not meant to do life alone, toughing it out all by ourselves.

 

This retreat is designed to support men in connecting with each other, living more open-hearted lives, and  breaking free from isolation and loneliness.

OTHER RITUALS AND RITES OF PASSAGE

Fall Colors on the North Shore of Minnesota

Life can often feel random, haphazard, and without shape and meaning. 

 

Rituals and Celebrations can help us make sense of our lives and the transitions we experience.

 

We will gladly partner with you to offer blessingways (a ritual way to honor and celebrate the transition into motherhood, fatherhood, or parenthood), a child dedication, a coming of age ceremony for a youth, a blessing for a new home, or to create a unique ceremony for your particular needs.
