Why should I choose your practice?

We built Tete Dumbo with the idea that we wanted to create a beautiful and comforting environment for people to come, talk about and process tough things. We also wanted this to be a place that was affordable, accessible, and felt in-step with the needs of people today. We understand that people have a lot going on in their lives and that therapy is a big commitment. We honor that fact by respecting your time and valuing your need to feel better, therefore we are not silent therapists in the room. We are engaging humans who want to offer insights and feedback where we can while maintaining appropriate clinical boundaries. We want the work at tete to feel collaborative, meaningful, and actualized in real time.
