TOC Therapy is a group practice of Therapists of Color. Our individual identities and experiences inform the work we do. We help you better understand your behaviors, choices, and patterns from a culturally congruent point of view that facilitates self-knowledge, self-understanding and self-compassion.
We are a psychodynamic and psychoanalytical practice:
The psychodynamic part of our work allows us to draw from different modalities like CBT, Somatic Therapy, solution-focused, Gottman Therapy, EFT, and others in order to find and use the interventions that fit YOU best.
The psychoanalytic part of our work is also essential: it's the part that allows us to make room for and explore how your childhood and past experiences have shaped your relationship with yourself and others-- to really find the origin of your wounds in order to help you find true healing.
