More about James
In my practice, I help people overcome their personal obstacles to change. Together, we identify those issues which we can change and those that we can accept. In the past 12 years, I have helped people create healthy movement in their lives and to develop a balanced design for living that can serve as a foundation for years to come. I strive to provide an atmosphere that is respectful and safe. It is very important to me that clients know that they have a voice in the treatment process so that the treatment is individualized to meet their needs.
More about Monica
The people I spend time with are professional, intelligent and usually on the edge of making the next best step towards health, success or a healthy relationship. Often times, the barrier for them is self doubt, behaviors that no longer work (addiction, eating, over-working) and/or “not having enough time.” Many of my clients are counselors, therapists or others in the helping profession. I am a strong ally of the LGBTQ community and have many clients who identify within this community.
More about Rachel
My approach is collaborative in which a unique, confidential, helping relationship is developed between myself and client(s). I help my clients understand themselves and relationships influencing their lives. I believe couples of any orientation can find resolution, and assist families by promoting communication, exploring family dynamics and relational challenges. My practice is open and affirming to any identity or relationship however defined, and I am dedicated to LGBTQQ equality and inclusion.
More about James
Cognitive-behavioral and attachment theories comprise the core of my clinical philosophy. How we think and feel shapes our behavior. In therapy we learn basic tools of asking for help and building trust. These skills let us examine our thoughts and emotions to make behavioral changes that support our goals and growth. As a client you are the catalyst for clinical progress and direct treatment planning and decision-making. I draw upon clinical practice in sexual health, chemical dependency, mood disorder, adolescent, and personality disorder settings.
More about Tim
I enjoy working with people to resolve the problems that are interfering with their life and happiness. Some common concerns I address in practice include depression, anxiety, drug and alcohol issues and PTSD. I welcome working with other members of the LGBTQ community to address issues that are often specific to our experiences.
More about Holly
I believe in an empathic approach to therapy. It is important to me to meet clients where they are at, using a strengths-based and nonjudgmental approach. I draw from a variety of therapy modalities, including cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, illness management and recovery and dialectical behavioral therapy. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for the treatment of trauma and PTSD. I believe in providing a safe and welcoming environment that allows individuals to effectively manage their lives and reach their highest potential.
More about Terry
I help people overcome life’s challenges so that they can grow and find the happiness they desire. I have a long history of working with those struggling with addiction as well as concerns related to sex and intimacy. From a mental health perspective, I work with clients who have anxiety, depression, trauma, relationship problems and some personality disorders. I use DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), solution focused, and reality therapy/choice theory believing that what we do and how we think ultimately creates how we feel. I also believe that creating and enjoying our attachments and relationships is an essential part of our wellbeing. I am also trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) for the treatment of trauma and PTSD. I welcome both adults and adolescent clients as well as some couples. I am sex positive and many of my clients identify with the LGBT community.

I help people who struggle with substance use reach their goals and celebrate their successes. I aim to create a safe space where clients can share their struggles and hardships in an attempt to understand how their past patterns have made an impact on their current life choices. Together with my clients and their families, I encourage improvement in relationships, self image and overall quality of life. I believe it is important to work collaboratively in order to navigate life’s challenges to reach your goals.
I have developed specialties in working with adolescents and young adults with addiction and/or co-occurring disorders with specific focus on anxiety disorders, Autism Spectrum and depressive disorders. I use a variety of methods including cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, analytic behavioral analysis and person centered techniques.

More about Katie
More about Cade
I primarily work with individuals, couples, and families with addiction, relationship, or sexual concerns. I have many years experience working as an addiction counselor within the LGBTQIA+ community. I have a passion with working with transgender* individuals, their partners, and families. I utilize empowerment, compassion, and humor in session. Therapy is hard work and sometimes we will need to laugh. Remember, you are NOT your problems and you CAN find joy in your life. I feel that people are not their problems and that we must learn to separate ourselves from them so we do not feel shame or stigma in order to achieve our desired goals. I am a systemic thinker and want to understand an individuals view of the world, their environment, and what they want out of life. I want to help empower people to feel happy and healthy in whatever way that looks like for them.
More about Amanda
I strive to provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment to help you learn more about yourself, gain skills to navigate life’s challenges, and live an authentic, fulfilled life. I offer culturally responsive therapy in English and Spanish. My areas of specialty include working with clients experiencing anxiety, OCD, life transitions, low self-worth, and trauma. I enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBQ+, transgender, and/or gender expansive. In my practice, I utilize a range of methods including person-centered, relational, self-compassion, mindfulness-based, and acceptance and commitment therapies. I am also trained in Adaptive Internal Relational (AIR) Network therapy, a neuro-developmental, competency-based model of therapy for complex PTSD and dissociation.
