ABOUT THE COMPANY
Every individual on the team here knows something special about mental health—whether it be how to be an advocate, an educator, a therapist to a specific population, or lived experience. There are no “jack-of-all-trades” therapists here. We don’t know how to treat every person and can’t possibly provide every service and we’re proud of that.
What we do teach and provide is therapy—from beginning to end—with specializations for the overlooked and marginalized groups to help them get the respect they deserve. Through unique professional talents and styles, our team dynamically redefines conversations about wellness and embraces new pathways of honoring mental health.
While our focus is on marginalized identities meeting modern needs, we welcome all who see parts of their identity and their stories being honored here to book with us.
