Our Therapists

Our therapists are selected for their clinical expertise, lived experiences, commitment to culturally informed therapy, and continued learning through their own personal therapy, consultation groups, and specialized trainings.  Meet our therapists.

Psychodynamic Therapy

Our therapists have extensive training and experience in psychodynamic therapy, which is an evidenced based approach providing clients with both symptom relief and ongoing changes even after therapy stops. See research

Safety

Being in therapy is vulnerable enough.  We practice culturally informed therapy, which minimizes the re-enactment of racism and microaggressions and lessens the risk of stereotypes and unconscious bias that lead to misdiagnoses, either normalizing behaviors or over pathologizing them.  For baseline safety, culturally informed therapy is a must.
