Our Area of Focus is...

Your Past, Present and Future


We offer an attentive and supportive environment for your present life and current relationships. To offer you the best possible support in developing your potential, our approach believes in exploring your past and present experiences to help you move and overcome the heavy obstacles that may be holding you back and standing in the way of you and your future goals.

“If you know whence you came from, there are no limitations to where you can go.” (James Baldwin). It is in this spirit, that through dialogue and conversation, we explore your storied narratives, the relationships you lived through, and the relationships you survived; whether in your identity forming years of young adulthood or in relation to adverse childhood experiences that may have happened and left heartbreak and wounds in early age.

If you place value on a person-in-environment philosophy that examines relationships and the events from your past, present, and future, our therapeutic approach may be a good match for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know when it is time to get support?

Attending to your social and emotional health is important, and knowing when to get support varies based on circumstances. Some people get support after a specific situation has happened, others get support to think through and develop a path forward in their life. Others choose to get support as part of their regular routine care for the purpose of personal development for themselves and their relationships.

How long are the appointments?

Each appointment is approximately 50-minutes.

How long does therapy last?

Therapy is a very personalized process, and participation in therapy varies from person-to-person. Some people use therapy as routine care to their overall health, and make it a part of their schedule, in the same way they schedule their time at the gym, for yoga, and other health activities. When used for personal development in this way, therapy is open-ended. Others elect to use therapy for problem-specific situations, while others use it for events/circumstances they have lived through. The length of therapy varies from person-to-person. A rule of thumb at our office is that 6-months is considered short-term therapy; while 12-months is considered mid-range; and 18-months is considered long-term therapy. Again however, each person and their circumstances are unique, and the length of therapy varies from person-to-person.

What is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker?

A Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) is an individual with a Master’s degree and the necessary training, and state licensure in mental health and psychotherapy to provide individual and group therapeutic services.

What type of therapy is offered?

For Adults — we offer a blend of Psychodynamic Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Rational-Emotive Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (RE-CBT) and Relationship-based Therapy. For Children — we offer Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for kids, Relationship Therapy, and Play Therapy.

Does therapy always work?

Sometimes it does, and sometimes it does not. Because therapy is a very personalized process, your outcomes depend on the relationship that you and your therapist establish. It’s important to always communicate with your therapist in an honest and transparent manner so that they are able to best be of support.
