In response to the global pandemic, we have paused in person treatment and are using our virtual office exclusively.

Updated June 20, 2022

The Blue Clinic was founded in 2015 with the mission of providing care that is smart, warm, and pays careful attention to cultural markers. The complex aspects of your identity impact how the world responds to you, your experiences, and your symptoms. Your treatment should be carefully crafted to address your unique needs.

The Blue Clinic is committed to offering quality therapy and each clinician is carefully vetted. Our mental health clinicians graduate from board accredited training institutions, have extensive clinical experience, and share our founding ethos. Our clinicians employ their respective expertise to carefully and respectfully help you develop insight around unconscious processes, past patterns, relationship trends, and current behaviors through individual therapy, couples therapy, group therapy and assessment.

The weight of emotional pain can be unbearable and lonely. It is difficult, impossible even, to envision feeling better, feeling fulfilled, feeling connected or just feeling like yourself again. The Blue Clinic understands how daunting this first step can be and we provide a safe, warm space to help you make your way through this. It is in this process that you begin to feel better, feel more fulfilled, more connected, feel like yourself. We strive to help you lead a more fulfilling life. We welcome you to get to know our practice.
