Sometimes we have what we need inside, but we have trouble tapping into it. We want to change but we just aren’t sure we have the stamina, ability or reserve to make it through. Sometimes we just don’t know where to start. All it takes is one step to move closer to the support you need to meet your goals. At Artesian Collaborative, LLC all our therapists are dedicated to helping our clients navigate through the tension and pain in life towards growth and change. We recognize that your identity, culture, history, relationships and experiences all come together to create who you are. Therapy is not a one size fits all model and requires us to collaborate through a diversity of treatments, techniques and modalities to unearth your internal resources, build skills and take steps towards your values.
