Pronounced - [Yoo 'noy uh]

Younoia is a play on the Greek word "Eunoia" which means to have healthy thoughts, have a beautiful mind, or to engage in goodwill. In choosing the name for the practice, I wanted to maintain the meaning associated with "eunoia" but I wanted to incorporate my orientation towards the client i.e. YOU. It is my hope that, in our work together, we can bring this new terminology to life!
