Our Staff

Our therapists are experienced clinicians, with expertise in traumatic stress, grief, sexuality, adolescent development, and mind/body integration.

Our therapists each bring a unique approach, set of gifts, and areas of expertise.  What unites us is our commitment to practicing within a relational approach to therapy, which embraces individuals in all facets of their identities. This model seeks to establish relationships based on mutuality, empowerment, and respect, while valuing the connection to the self and others.
