About

At Taproot Therapy, our goal is to target the main root of your concerns as a means to create lasting change in your life. We specialize in anxiety disorders and depressive disorders. Anxiety and depression can uproot your life! We are here to help you feel grounded and supported. Our team supports a variety of needs. Our clinicians and coaches specialize in behavioral issues, play therapy, mindfulness, pregnancy loss, shame resilience, families, adolescents, transitions during the teen years, skill building, vulnerability, young adults, and LGBTQIA+. We specialize in CBT, DBT, shame resilience, and play therapy.
If you are feeling anxious, vulnerable, overwhelmed, argumentative, unfocused, or are searching for who you are, we are here to help! Our treatment modalities connect your thoughts, feelings and behaviors to identify unwanted patterns. We provide you with tools to practice during the week so the therapeutic process continues even when you aren't in session.
Our team integrates self-compassion techniques and promotes empathy and care. Our focus is you, and supporting you to reach your goals. We take a values-based approach to reduce anxiety, depression, implement appropriate and strengthening boundaries, and build shame resilience. Our team is ready to work with you! Contact us for your free consultation today.

Taproot Therapy, LCSW, PLLC's Groups

DBT for Lesbians, WLW, and AFAB Non-Binary Queer

We utilize DBT skills coaching to provide identity-affirming support, validation, guidance, and psycho-education wherever you are on your journey. This group is right for you if you are a lesbian, a queer person, who has experienced living as a woman, and is attracted to women; you would benefit from connecting to others with similar or shared experiences; you struggle with anxiety, depression, or emotion regulation; you struggle to set boundaries; you struggle with acceptance of your identity; and you have difficulty in interpersonal relationships. This is a virtual group.

More about this group

DBT for Teens

This is an ongoing group. During this group, we will cover the four skill modules in DBT: mindfulness, emotion regulation, interpersonal effectiveness, and distress tolerance. This group is right for your teen if they struggle with depression or anxiety, are easily angered, or become escalated quickly, and they want to improve their relationships with peers, teachers, parents, and siblings. This group will also focus on impulsive behaviors, such as disordered eating, self-harm, or substance use.
