Have you gone to multiple therapists who tell you to simply “deep breathe”? Well, that just isn’t enough and oftentimes, offensive. We, at Tip of the Spear, utilize adaptive therapeutic techniques, hand tailored for the individual. We are here to help and support you through anything you are struggling with.
When Michael DeSena's military career honorably came to an end, he decided to embark on a journey that would lead him to work within the community in a new way. He often says that psychotherapy found him, and because of that, he is committed to helping others find their version of peace within their lives. Thus, he founded Tip of the Spear Psychotherapy: a mental health group forged with intention and determination to provide people of all ages access to quality mental health care. Tip of the Spear is revolutionizing the way care is provided. We are a private group practice of carefully selected mental health professionals that provide individual, family, and couples therapy. We also provide LGBTQIA+ weekly Group Therapy Sessions that offers a safe and supportive space for the community.
We understand that therapy isn’t always easy. That’s why our clinicians combine empathy, proven interventions, and most importantly, tough love.
