Do you find yourself playing out the same scenarios and challenges in your relationships with friends, family, and partners? Do you feel like you're experiencing conflicts and are struggling to make a change? Therapy can help! My work is based on Feminist and Queer theories - which are oriented on helping to make the world a safer place for difference.

Therapist (M.A.) - Offering in-person & virtual therapy

Are you tired of hearing “you’re just nervous, you’ll get over it”? Or worried your family won’t accept your partner due to racial differences? Culture can affect almost everything. Whether, the range of emotions we access, how we parent, or how we build and sustain interpersonal relationships. My role as a therapist is to help you identify your strengths and areas for growth. I look forward to meeting you at the intersection of compassion, warmth, and acceptance as you embark on your healing journey.

Have you struggled to make yourself a priority? Have you wanted more, but accepted less? Do you worry that you didn’t make the right choices, and now it’s “too late?” Sometimes we know what no longer serves us, but we feel too afraid to let go, and it feels painful just to say it out loud. Now, (really) take a moment and imagine what life could look and feel like if you loved yourself enough to embrace the fear that comes with change. In this imaginary moment- if you felt more alive, even for a second, you have what it takes to turn a moment into a way of life, and I can help you                                                 get there.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Learn more about Emily

Therapist- Offering in-person & virtual therapy

Are you having difficulty with the relationships in your life? Are you struggling to make progress with your goals? Is it hard for you to find meaning in your daily living? I firmly believe that before any psychological theory or technique can be helpful, a therapeutic relationship must be established. I see the relationship between a client and therapist as a collaborative partnership. I work hard to create an engaging and supportive environment where you can let down your guard and speak freely so that we can then get to work on creating the change you are looking for.                                                                                                                                                                                                                               Learn more about Nick
