About

We teach actionable, lifestyle appropriate, culturally affirming and measurable skills that help clients become aware of and adjust negative cognitive, emotional and behavioral patterns which cause maintain or exacerbate anxiety, depression, PTSD, bipolar disorder, OCD and more. While using evidence-based therapy frameworks, we are sensitive to and work with clients to address contextual and sociocultural factors and systems that contribute to psychological stress and distress they feel. We specialize in relationship issues, grief, trauma, family issues, identity, transitions, career/education, depression and anxiety.
In the end our clients are able to experience enthusiasm, take inspired and purposeful action, live with autonomy, find pleasure in people, places and things, have emotional flexibility, and experience vulnerability and intimacy in relationships.
It is important for all people to feel safe and that they have a place of belonging. We work to ensure that clients feel heard, seen, felt and supported
