We are excited to announce the development of a new mental health and wellness practice in St Augustine, called Wellspring Counseling and Health, LLC.

The definition of Wellspring contains a few different and positive meanings:

• The place something starts from or comes from.

• The plentiful source of good things or information.

• An original and bountiful source.

We love this name because we believe all of us have the potential for new growth. We believe all of us can start something new from within ourselves. We are excited to be able to work with clients on their journeys towards health and growth. We believe that individuals and families are unique and different and come to us for guidance on where to begin to grow. Together we can form a positive working

relationship. We each offer different perspectives and different ways of working with clients to help them reach their goals for transformational change.

Most people make changes when the following necessary components are present; a positive vision, ability to see the benefits, motivation by fear/pain, goal alignment, care and support. Whether you desire to improve a relationship or your own health, at WellSpring we are equipped to support you. We care about your well-being!
