Welcome to our practice

Your peace is on our minds

Our Impact

We work with our patients to recognize and build upon their strengths and resiliency to improve their self-esteem and confidence.

We are dedicated to providing our services with respect and compassion in a nonjudgmental, safe environment in which our patients feel open to sharing their vulnerabilities and telling their meaningful stories.

Meeting each patient where they are and forming collaborative therapeutic relationships that allow us to work towards identified goals together:

  • Reducing feelings of stress/guilt/self-doubt.

  • Improving healthy personal and professional relationships.

  • Working through past issues so they are well integrated and do not interfere with a happier, healthier, more fulfilling present and future.

  • Increasing your ability to feel content.

  • Improving communication and encouraging vulnerability in order to create an emotionally safe environment.

Our Approach

Our group practice was developed through shared learning experiences. We believe that in order to support our clients, we constantly need to engage in self-learning, group consultations, and a solid integration of theory and practice.

 

We are extremely passionate about supporting people to better their lives and improve their wellbeing.

 

Our services emphasize racial and ethnic diversity and are LGBTQ sensitive.

 

We believe that individuals, couples, and families can benefit from meaningful support and guidance. Our approach places a strong emphasis on understanding a problem and working toward a solution by developing open channels of honest communication during sessions. This way, our patients practice engaging in healthy forms of communication that they can take outside the room in order to build and nurture productive, fulfilling relationships.

Telemental health during Covid-19

Besides prioritizing safety by offering HIPAA-compliant telemental health, we are constantly learning through research and clinical literature about the short-term and long-term effects of Covid-19 on individuals, couples, and families. We make sure to bring awareness to the impact of the global changes on the individual and offer our patients a safe, supportive space in which to process some of the painful feelings brought on by the reality of living through a global pandemic.
