We believe that all people have a place within them that is healthy and whole. At Wholetherapy, we offer an integrative, trauma-sensitive approach to anyone who is interested in exploring their lives and making difficult changes. We specifically work with individuals, couples, and families who have faced adverse life experiences and trauma.
We start by learning about what you'd like to address in therapy within the context of your life now and your personal history. Then, we help you access an internal sense safety and security. From this place of stability, we help you heal old wounds to improve your day to day life now. We offer an inclusive, safe environment so you can get the help you need.
Trauma therapy is our passion. We guide you to connect with yourself, process your experiences, and move forward with your life. Book online today for a free consultation and we'll take the first steps on your healing journey together.

We work with clients who have experienced a wide range of traumatic and adverse experiences. Healing looks different for everyone and it is often non-linear. We usually recommend initial sessions be frequent so we ca delve deeply into issues and gain momentum. Once clients notice a reduction in symptoms, we typically recommend gradually decreasing the frequency of sessions and moving to closure.
