My Personal Beliefs and Interests
Mindful Restoration is a place of acceptance, healing and self-discovery. Sometimes life stressors can be too much to handle alone and we need help working through them. Jodee Magcalas Gossett is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist who is passionate about creating a safe and unique experience to help you heal from the emotional pain and discover new strengths and possibilities within yourself that will enable you to create more intimate and trusting relationships. Together we will create a safe and sacred space for you to be your true authentic self, share your deepest pain, and emerge stronger and live a more satisfying life. I provide a holistic psychotherapy approach by incorporating the mind, body, and spirit. I have witnessed first hand the healing and peace that therapy can offer, and would be honored to take that journey with you.
