About the Practice


A few things to know about our staff:

  • Our staff take a relational, collaborative approach with clients.  We believe clients are the experts of their own lives, they have the ability within them to help them reach wellness, and that they deserve to make truly informed decisions about their care.
  • We have a Licensed Clinical Psychologist, who has worked in a variety of settings, such as community mental health, inpatient, prisons, colleges, and military/veteran facilities and worked at the local, state, and federal levels.  These roles allow her to understand mental health through a complex relationship of medical, biological, social, cultural, psychological, and legal systems and to value integrative care.  We also have a Registered Nurse, who has worked in Emergency Rooms, a detention center,  Fire and EMS, and a forensic-medical unit.  
  • We have Master's levels interns working under supervision are often working at the practice and may be involved in group care, or if patients agree to seeing an intern, individual care.   
  • To meet the needs of individual clients, our therapists are trained and have experience in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy, Prolonged Exposure, Dialetical Behavioral Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Interpersonal Therapy.  While typically not a focus for us, we also have experience in Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
A few things to know about the practice:
  • We are an in-person practice, not yet providing telehealth.  
  • We do not accept insurance.  This is for many reasons.  Some of these reasons include use of insurance 1) can compromise your confidentiality, 2) requires a diagnosis which can lead to pathologizing patients and a permanent association of those diagnoses in a patient's medical records that can affect later employment or health care, 3) can lead to higher premiums and/or out-of-pocket costs because some treatment needs such as attachment or life-transition issues and modalities like telehealth may not be covered, 4) can lead to insurance employees who may not be licensed providers determining if your treatment plan is coverable, and 5) requires providers spend a lot of time working on billing and reimbursement that can exhaust, burn-out, or otherwise distract a provider from focusing on your care.
  • We are a LGBTQ+, polyamory, and kink-friendly practice.  Our therapists have been specially trained and have experience working with these communities.
