Therapists

Our amazing team of caring and conscious counselors and therapists represent a wide variety of perspectives, cultural and life experiences, ages, and worldviews. What we share in common is a deep commitment to anti-oppression work, self-awareness and a compassionate response to suffering.

Our therapeutic approaches differ based on our values, style and experience. With a diverse set of skills and styles, we hope to match you with someone that meets your specific needs. However, we know that we are not always a perfect fit for everyone who walks through our door, so please let us know if you would like to try working with another counselor and you’ll move to the front of the waitlist to meet another of our clinicians.

Saying “no” to one therapist may activate worry about your clinician’s feelings of rejection, but we encourage you to trust that we are well-practiced at managing our own feelings in favor of meeting your needs. Our work would not be terribly meaningful to us if you were not maximizing your opportunity for growth and feeling the best possible fit.
