AS A SKILLED PSYCHOTHERAPIST, A SEASONED GUIDE,
AND AN INTENTIONAL LISTENER, ONE OF OUR THERAPISTS WILL JOIN YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY WHERE YOU ALREADY ARE.
The therapeutic relationship is the most important aspect of psychotherapy. For treatment to be successful, you need a space where you can feel comfortable sharing more of what’s happening on the inside with someone you trust, who listens and can help you hold and digest your experience. Our therapists can encourage that environment, your relational-home, by being with you and listening together as you share your thoughts and feelings, your bodily sensations, your current and past relationships, your dreams, your stories, and even the stories within your stories. We’ll bring a style that is warm and unitive, combining psychoanalytic theory, Jungian psychology, philosophy, spirituality, and perspectives on healing from many different cultures and traditions. In your relational-home, we can think together, make meaning out of your experiences, and ultimately find opportunities for symptom relief, growth, and healing.
WHO WE WORK WITH
Our therapists work with a diverse population of adults, couples and special interest groups. Those who identify in a variety of ways related to age, gender, race, sexuality, culture, and religion have found our work together to be very helpful in navigating the complex issues they’re facing in their lives.
Have you struggled with the feeling that various parts of yourself are out of sync? Do you find it hard to concentrate or make decisions? Is a sense of restlessness or pervasive feeling of danger keeping you from being present?
Perhaps you experience a varying degree of fear in your daily life. It could be that both rational and irrational worries take the forefront of your mind and imagination, while sensations of relaxation, peace, and satisfaction have become increasingly rare. And if constant worry or a lack of control has taken a toll on your ability to maintain strong connections with others, it might be difficult for you to find and stay in lasting partnerships or friendships.
Depression, Grief, and Mood disorders
Though they present uncomfortable symptoms and setbacks in our daily lives, depression and anxiety are essential elements of being human. Whereas anxiety keeps us alert and drives us forward, depression slows us down and gives us a chance to adjust to new circumstances. And that’s precisely why these uncomfortable elements are so common during times of grief, uncertainty, and life transition.
Yet when they begin to consistently and negatively impact us on a psychic level, these mental health challenges often require outside help.
Trauma, C-PTSD/PTSD, and Complexes
Dealing with neglect, abuse, or a lack of comfort and protection in our home early in life can be incredibly challenging. We often develop coping mechanisms in response to these harsh environments without understanding how and why they influence our emotions, self-image, communication skills, and relationships with others.
Traumatic events that can come at any stage in life, such as accidents, violence, or the death of a loved one, can also lead to challenging situations that may leave us stuck in problematic and systemic behavioral patterns.
Identity Issues related to Gender, Sexuality, and Race

Many people feel a particularly strong need for an environment where they will be accepted, treated with respect, and supported through the growth and healing processes. Perhaps you can relate.
