Our Ideal Client

We currently have three therapists at our practice. We work from a multi-cultural and racial awareness perspective. Our practice serves adults, youth, couples, and families.

Our Approach to Helping

We believe that you are more than the issue you bring into therapy. We all have lived experiences, developmental stages, and life choices which have shaped our story this far and they are all important in the therapeutic process. Our therapists work from the theoretical approaches of Attachment Theory, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Person-Centered Theory, Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Theory, Motivational Interviewing (MI), Crisis intervention, Trauma-Informed perspectives, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) skills. I incorporate mindfulness practices, self-reflection, family history, and storytelling perspectives in my work with clients. It is our goal that you feel open and safe to share in sessions. Please see our website for more specific information about how each therapist at our office practices.

Our Personal Beliefs and Interests

Our Therapists have a rich blend of experiences in communities across the state and across the globe. We have practiced in residential treatment facilities, child welfare, foster care programs, parenting education, homeless and runaway youth, case management, school social work, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, medical social work, international orphanage work, and immigrant and refugee supports. See the ABOUT page on our website for the specifics about each therapist.
