I am a Licensed Clinical & Pastoral Counselor who has partnered with my Chef husband (Dave) to synergize our passions to form a space for fun, wellness and healing! That space is Turning Leaf Wellness Center where we seek to nurture the balance of body, mind, & spirit by supporting persons in their life journeys and offering them a space for respite & retreat, relaxation & fun, and support & healing! We offer a variery of services such as wellness classes, cooking classes, life coaching, counseling, massage and facials to name a few. Feel free to check us out anytime at www.turning-leaf-wellness.com or stop by for a visit. When not working at the wellness center, my husband and I spend a lot of time with our two daughters, grandaughter, son-in-law to be, and three dogs as well as extended family and friends. We are avid animal lovers and nature lovers and we love to be outdoors, especially anywhere near water, so we spend a lot of time at the ocean, on the beach or boating on the bay. Of course, we also love food so we are avid FOODIES trying new foods or new ways to create foods all the time. Additionally, I love to work out and exercise and I drag my husband along on bike rides that leave us breathless as well as walks, hikes, wandering the streets of Annapolis or whatever physical activity we can do on any give day for fun and health. Last, but not least, we are both born again Christians who love our Lord Jesus Christ dearly and worship at a fantastic church, Lighthouse, where my husband plays base in the praise band and I volunteer at the information station as well as am starting a small group for unexpectedly, pregnant, single women! We know without Jesus, none of this would be possible. We've heard all the arguments against him and for other religions and we respect those arguments and viewpoints, however, for us, no matter what we've heard and what we don't understand, we still have faith that he did save us from ourselves, does love us despite ourselves and is preparing a place for us in the next life, heaven. Well that's us. Hope you enjoy our blog and we get to meet you sometime!
