Our Therapists specialize in supporting women throughout adulthood (Millennials and GenZ's) with mental health concerns that impact their ability to be whole, well, and live full lives. Our lens in therapy is unique - we provide therapy through a cultural, gender, and systems lens to support the well-being of the whole person to move from surviving to thriving.
We offer individual therapy to adults; in addition to groups and classes to provide community support to women looking to improve their mental wellness with like-minded women.
