It’s truly amazing to watch a life long dream unfold right before our eyes. Although the three of us come from completely different backgrounds, our shared vision has allowed us to create a space that feels like a home away from home. Our paths crossed many years ago while in graduate school and early on in our careers. While we always dreamed of creating a “therapeutic oasis,” we travelled different roads, until our paths once again intersected a few years ago. It was during that time that our incredible professional bond, deep friendship, shared vision, patience, and hard work, paved the way for the creation of the Oasis. Three driven and determined women, stopping at nothing to realize our dream by helping people realize their dreams of peace, wellness, and a life worth living.
We always knew we wanted to create a therapy center committed to guiding individuals and families on their journey to wellness. While all of us have extensive training in evidence-based treatments, our success stories with clients come out of the power of combining our individual gifts, skills, and talents to form a powerful healing “therapy team”. The Oasis was born out of the need to establish a safe, intimate environment that strives to deliver the utmost professional and ethical treatment to clients in need of help from a trusting and compassionate team.
Our dream would be incomplete without the skill, creativity and talent of Clara Bossie, LMFT and Anni Johnston, LMHC, who bring with them decades of combined experience in traditional and expressive therapies. Whether painting in our amazing art studio, engaging in movement therapy, or planting herbs in our garden, Clara and Anni are the yin to our yang.
However, our community extends well beyond the Oasis. We strive to build collaborative relationships with other therapy specialists and medical professionals and surround ourselves with like-minded colleagues. With that said, we thank each of you for taking the time to visit our “new home.” May this be the beginning of a long and strong professional relationship, as we all set out to bring healing and happiness to the community at large.
