Clients should feel heard and get feedback on what they bring to therapy. Sessions are interactive, conversational and educational. How the process goes, is entirely up to you! Client (you) and clinician (us) develop goals for the therapeutic process that are realistic and attainable and will lead to you feeling better than when you started. But remember, therapy only works when you do!

We are a small group practice of (mostly) LMFTs who believe people operate in patterns and that problems are not within a person but between them and the world around them. We practice from a non-pathologizing perspective where we see symptoms as information that can help clients recognize and understand how changing the way they interact can be helpful in getting them feeling better.

At Whole Soul Counseling, all clinicians are trauma-informed and trained in EMDR as well as other trauma-focused modalities. We also consider ourselves to be allies and informed providers for the LGBTQ+ community.
