Our Reason for Being
We exist to provide life-changing psychotherapy to people as a means to finding and celebrating deeper peace and meaning in their lives. We truly believe that everyone deserves to feel personally fulfilled within themselves, and the ultimate goal of our therapeutic services is to walk alongside our clients on their version of this journey.
Our Guiding Beliefs
We believe that therapy is good for you. The growth and healing that happen in therapy are central to your well-being as a human and key to the fulfilling life you seek to live.
We believe that everyone deserves a little therapy. Why? Because everyone deserves to be listened to, to be heard and seen, and to be taken seriously. Telling yourself you don’t “need” therapy is telling yourself “My concerns aren’t worthy of attention” and “I deserve to struggle alone.”
We believe that allowing yourself to experience sorrow, and other sometimes uncomfortable feelings, ultimately expands your capacity for deeper living, including the experience of joy.
We believe that all human beings are worthy of dignity and love.
We believe that self-exploration allows you to be able to experience greater compassion and love for yourself and for others, live more consciously, and feel more ownership over your life.
We believe that when you are able to heal from the traumas and hardships of the past, you are able to live more fully in the present and see more hope in the future.
