How can you make sure that you find someone affirming of your identity? For anyone, beginning therapy can be filled with a range of feelings, from fear to excitement to uncertainty. As therapists, we hope to guide, support, empower and be with you during this process of growth, exploration, and self actualization. We want to work with you to realize a life you find fulfilling on your own terms. We believe that taking the first step and beginning therapy is nothing short of courageous, is self-caring, and deeply rewarding. Our mission is to offer a safe , non-judgmental , and empowering therapeutic space to individuals and communities who often lack access to services and are met with stigma, discrimination and microaggressions, even while in therapy.
