“Whatever challenge is in front of you, know that you hold the key in your hand.”  – Ever Changing River, LLC

We simply need to know where to look for resources, guidance, support and/or assistance, to help us discover our key. I also truly believe we were not meant to handle it all alone.

There are many, many paths to explore…..from friends to kick around an idea with to books to read to websites to gain encouragement and education to workshops to gain education and support to therapy groups to help us tackle larger challenges. But you need to take the first step.

If your challenge is possible separation or divorce, please consider joining us for one of our workshops, River BaNC, a basic navigational course through the complexities of divorce in Northern Virginia or Maryland.  Save time and money by hearing from and asking questions of a family law attorney, a financial advisor and a therapist.  Gain education and support.  Knowledge equal power.
