Practice Information

Our team feels privileged to bear witness to the story of your roots as you branch out towards your goals. It is our mission to serve a diverse client base by offering insight, empathy, honest feedback, and practical tools to help you overcome obstacles and difficult circumstances. We utilize evidence-based treatments and our team of skillful practitioners is diligent in their own continuous professional development to serve you better. Our mission is to empower our clients to courageously pursue lives of genuine connection, professional fulfillment, wondrous adventure and mindful acceptance.


What services does your practice offer?

We offer in-person and Telehealth sessions for individual, couples, and groups. In individual therapy, our therapists will partner with you to gain insight into your thoughts, relationships, and patterns of behaviors. We will help you grow to reach your goals with new communication skills, to effectively assert yourself and manage your thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. Our first goal in couples therapy is to gain an understanding of your story, both as a couples and as individuals. While practice eclectically, we lean heavily on the evidence-based Gottman Therapy techniques and practices for couples therapy, which is based on 30+ years of research and provides a shared language around behaviors that will improve you communication, connection and sex life. Group therapy, in conjunction with individual therapy, has been proven to improve outcomes. People learn better in groups and giving empathy to others increases your empathy for yourself.

What are your practice's specialties?

Above all things we are a trauma focused practice, which means we are focused on how past experiences in your life created thought and behavior patterns that are not working well for you in the present. Our therapists treat teens and adults struggling with anxiety, depression, PTSD and all manner of mood and most personality disorders. We have expertise in improving your self-esteem, assertiveness, relationships, and boundary setting. We can help reduce and eliminate harmful pattens of behaviors with couples and individuals and their friends, partners and colleagues. We can help you learn to practice mindful non-judgement of yourself and others, learn how to change self-critical thoughts, and harness the power of your emotions so that you can utilize them rather than allowing them to control you.

Why should I choose your practice?

When building our team at Roots and Branches Therapy we sought to assemble a group of genuine, curious, and thoughtful practitioners who find it a privilege to do this work. The goal was to find folks diverse in their therapeutic experience, identities, backgrounds, and life experience and are excited to work as a team. We challenge each other to grow by examine our bias, our thought process, and take ongoing trainings. When you see one of our therapists, in some ways, you get the toolbox of the whole team.

How does payment work at your practice?

Clients who can afford to pay full-fee ($180--$225 individual/couples) make it possible for us to see Cigna in-network and sliding scale clients.

We are in-network with Cigna, and is out-of-network providers for all insurance companies. Our clinical director can help you understand your coverage and discuss options that might make your care more affordable.
