Why choose us?


We are empathetic and compassionate to our clients and their needs.  Don’t take our word for it. See what everyone is saying about the Journey Center.


Counseling is a healing relationship between you and your therapist, to be deeply heard, lovingly supported, and walked with through your struggle.

Retreat Workshops

We offer retreats and day workshops to help women come together, learn together, and grow together. These always include deep healing work and lots of laughter 🙂 Keep an eye on the calendar for upcoming workshops.


Knowing we are not alone in this healing process is a deeply meaningful experience; group therapy offers this kind of support as you walk through your own struggle.

Women Empowering Women

A quarterly gathering of women who come together for coaching and support. This circle experience is perfect for women who need a little creative support to get your life moving in a positive direction. We explore topics such as self esteem, expressing the unsaid anger, letting go of old hurts, setting inspirational goals, and the art of forgiveness. This is an open ended group that meets on one Saturday morning every 3 months. You may come to one, or come to all and get support all year around. RSVP one week before each meeting (email [email protected] or call 423-408-8041). Cost is $85, payable by cash, check, or card. We gather at Cherokee UMC from 9am-Noon. Once you register, you are invited to a private FB group to get support through the year.
