Make Your Home a Haven
When living spaces are designed with wellness in mind, our home becomes a sanctuary of connection.

Hi, I'm Dr. Bev.

I’m a Clinical Psychologist, Educator, and Mom of two. I'm passionate about the intersection between health and our environment. Our home is meant to be a place to find comfort, where we can feel our best. I'm putting my background in child psychology to good use, working with talented interior designers to help you enhance your well-being by optimizing the design of your living spaces.

We're challenging what it means to live well. We aim to empower families with knowledge, clarity, and a customized path toward designing wellness at home. We believe that living in balance happens when we cultivate flow, energy and connection. We begin to achieve this reality when we prioritize uncovering our core beliefs and goals, and embed these values into the design process.

How do we optimize our home for wellness?

We all have different needs to grow and thrive in our living spaces.

Aging in place refers to living independently, safely, and comfortably in one’s home for as long as possible. This is an important necessity for most older adults and their families. (University of Michigan)

Things really started to spark when you walked through our home and each space with me. I started to make realizations on my own about things that could change. Once I saw how good it felt to take care of one space and reduce clutter, I have felt highly motivated to keep going!
