“Nothing can dim the light that shines from within”
WHO WE ARE
Our Treatment Focus
Our experience enables us to offer effective outpatient, individualized, mental health care. We treat a number of mental health disorders and life challenges, including (but not limited to): trauma (childhood and adulthood), adult adoptees, family separation trauma/former fosterees, adoptive parents and parent coaching, first/birth parents, domestic and sexual violence recovery, oppression and discrimination, depression and anxiety, divorce, LGBTQIA, spiritual trauma and recovery from high demand groups, depression and anxiety, grief, and more
Efforts to Provide a 'Safe Space'
It takes time to build trust in a therapeutic relationship. We will do everything we can to be worthy of your trust. It will ultimately be up to you to determine whether you believe us to be worthy of the descriptor “Ally”, but we commit to doing our best to be allies to folks from many kinds of marginalized groups.
We are aware that it is not your responsibility to educate us about certain life experiences and/or identities, and we are committed to actively doing our part to address how power and differences in identities in the therapy room can affect our relationship.
Because there is a dire need in the therapeutic community for clinicians who are competent in the areas of adoption/foster care, family separation, trauma, sexual and domestic violence, and discrimination/oppression, this is a teaching clinic. This means that Licensed Social Workers who are also clinical interns provide the majority of services at the practice. Clinical interns at this practice are vetted carefully and are committed to principles of equity, inclusion, and social justice, and integrating these principles with therapeutic treatment.
We treat marginalized groups, including:
Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and queer; transgender, intersex, and non-binary
Bodies of all shapes and sizes
Non-monogamous and open relationships
Biracial, Indigenous, and People of Color
Sex-positive, kink allied
Disabled / Differently abled
Humanist, atheists, and nature-based faith philosophies
All religions (this practice is secular)
