Therapy tailored to you

Our Process

We begin with
understanding

Before your first consult, we send a survey to get to know you—your history, preferences, and goals.

You meet with
a clinician

This in-person time allows for deeper conversation around your needs and what you hope to get out of therapy.

We make a match


With data-at-hand, we match you with the right therapist or group and create a custom treatment plan.

And we follow how
you feel

We want therapy to evolve with you—so we check-in at key moments and make any necessary changes.

We've
got matching
down to a

science.

To make great matches, we consider a wide range of factors:

Symptoms Current symptoms and severity.
Goals Your goals for treatment.
Personality Coping and communication style.
Background Age, gender, identity, ethnicity and language.
Past treatment Treatment type, length and outcome.
Medical history Health conditions and medications.
Family history Mental and physical health.
Logistics Schedule availability and location preference.

Our Services

Individual Therapy

Our individual sessions are dedicated time to focus on you and your needs.


Evidence-based and in-person.

Our practice roots itself in two foundational beliefs—our methods should be grounded in research and everything should revolve around trusting relationships.

Therapists with diverse background.

We don’t underestimate the value of common experience and make sure we have therapists on staff that can truly meet you where you are.

Tailored to you.

From frequency and number of sessions to modality of care, we tailor care at every step of the way.


Modalities

There are many evidence-based forms of therapy, but here are a few that we practice.

  • Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT)

  • Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT)

  • Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

  • Psychodynamic Therapy

Group Therapy

Our groups treat anxiety, stress, and depression through discussion, mindfulness practices, and skills-based learning.


Expert-led, integrative approach.

Each session is a mix of skill-building and conversation, all expertly guided by a clinician with deep expertise in group therapy.

Built on shared experience.

Each group is shaped by the people in it and embraces the ethos of learning and growing together.

Tailored to you.

With personal check-ins and assignments, our groups are as effective as individual therapy.


Groups we offer

Our offerings are informed by the latest clinical research and designed to work with your budget.
