Our Team

No one can whistle a symphony. It takes a whole orchestra to play it.
  ~H.E. Luccock

Our integrative team includes professionally trained and experienced psychotherapists with varying specialties and a minimum of a master’s degree in a mental health related field.

We have partnered up with expert integrative wellness practitioners who share common threads of compassion and focus in providing solid effective evidenced-based treatment.

Our practitioners are independent contractors and thus operate independently.  However, we can assure you that we are extremely selective about who we choose to bring on to our team, to ensure high quality care with trained and experienced professionals with specific specializations.
