On a rainy winter night two friends got together over good food and a glass of wine to share stories. We talked over our years on the island, children growing up, and how meaningful a career in mental health has been. Woven through our conversation was the recognition of what a special place Bainbridge Island is to live. The connectedness and support found between neighbors, friends, businesses and community. We felt it was time to give back with the skills we had to create Here to There Therapy.
We found an old desk perfect for art therapy. Made a trip to Ikea. Gathered favorite toys used by our children and pictures for our walls. Found the perfect chairs, a couch with the right amount of softness, and a quilt for comfort.
In true Bainbridge Island fashion, we have had help with donated photography, moving furniture, business advice and referrals, as well as emotional support.
Thank you all for helping us on our journey.
