Our Approach

While each of our individual approaches is unique, we all work from an intersectional lens that integrates your culture and values to curate a plan for you. Our general approach is best characterized by these three pillars:

Collaboration

We believe in collaboration-- You and your therapist are a team. We teach you the best of what we know so that you can feel empowered to take life head-on. Set clear treatment goals and a tangible plan with workable steps.

Accountability

We'll keep you accountable for your goals: working together to trouble-shoot what is not working so we can build on what does. We wont just teach you what we know, we will also help you practice it outside of therapy so you can eventually feel confident in managing your mental health on your own.

Compassion

Teaching you self-compassion is our secret weapon. When you can contextualize and understand your own history and pattens-- without judgement-- you can begin to make meaningful progress towards your goals.
