Blue Sage Transitions Therapy emerged from Connie North and Nyle Biondi’s desire to serve individuals, partners, and families in Boulder County. As licensed marriage and family therapists, we use a systems approach, meaning we look at how you shape and are shaped by your relationships, identities, and the contexts in which you work and live. At the heart of our work is the belief that you know what you need and may benefit from some help uncovering exactly what that is and how to get there. We aspire to listen to and understand you so as to help you live your life to the fullest.
“This collaboration with the earth should be done with care.
Even gardens, it seems, can set off explosions, and so
I'll have blue salvia and blue ageratum next year,
pale petunias, more poems, and some plumbago.”
— MONA Van Nuyn
Why Blue Sage?
Observing the blue sage (also known as blue salvia) in our garden, we have noticed how several of its characteristics relate to the human experience. Although blue sage can weather a drought, it thrives in direct sunlight. Blue sage also attracts pollinators, revealing its interdependence with the environment and other local inhabitants. It has medicinal properties, such as helping to reduce human fevers, and simultaneously repels its predators, like deer. In other words, it can help others while safeguarding its own well-being.
