Our Services

The Front Porch Offers a variety of services to support you in your wellness journey. Our holistic approach integrates talk therapy, mindfulness, meditation, sand tray therapy, massage, Reiki/energy therapy and more to support healing and safe connection for all who seek it.



Counseling here at The Front Porch is unique, integrating mindfulness, healing touch, and good listening. We value listening well because we believe that once they’re alongside a caring and thoughtful companion, our clients know how to heal what is causing their suffering. 

We can add flexible alternate pathways in a person’s life, or support in an overwhelming circumstance. Medicine cannot replace what makes us human; we need another person who is genuinely interested in our well-being when we are suffering or going through a transition.

We help our clients to understand that what they may call “wrong” may actually be a door into a deeper transformation of what is right or what is possible. We do not quit; we believe there is hope in all cirsumstances.



Mindfulness is the practice of being present in the now: this moment. It gives us observable space between our soul and anything flowing through the mind and body, in which suffering can be alleviated.

Mindfulness gives us the ability to observe the mind and body in a nonjudgmental and caring way so a person does not identify with their suffering. We strengthen the mind to endure and create space between our true self and our experience.

For those that are spiritual, we can intertwine this practice with prayer or scripture. Kathy Blumentritt has been practicing for over fifteen years, in both professional and spiritual settings.

Reiki and Energy Therapy

Reiki is a Japanese method of stress reduction, balancing our natural bioelectric magnetic fields by accessing spiritually guided life energy to foster healing physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually. The word “Reiki” means “mysterious atmosphere, miraculous sign.” It comes from the Japanese words “rei,” meaning universal, and “ki,” meaning life energy.

Energy therapy aims to help the flow of energy and remove blocks in a similar way to acupuncture or acupressure. Reiki centers on improving the flow of energy around the body, mind, and soul to enable relaxation, relieve pain, speed healing, and reduce other symptoms of illness whether physically, mentally, and/or spiritually.

Joy’s Master Reiki and Energy Therapy facilitates accelerated physical and emotional healing for those in need as well as those who simply need recentering and rebalancing.


Joy uses the powerful tools of openness and higher vibrations in creating a healing space. Joy is available to work with each therapist to uniquely supplement your healing plan and/or further your life’s journey.


Maybe you suffer from physical pain, emotional scars, fear, loss, trauma… the body holds all… allow Joy to share her connectedness…rebalance, recenter and clear your body with energy healing.
