We are trained in various therapy techniques so you will receive the type of support that works best for you.

Let us be your partner as you embark on the next step of your healing journey.
Lena is a somatically informed Relational Psychotherapist who specializes in the treatment of trauma. What does this mean? Many people in our culture have suffered some form of trauma in childhood or their adult life – illness, physical harm, emotional neglect, or verbal abuse – but essentially trauma is anything that causes a person to feel worthless helpless, insecure, or even endangered. This type of deep experience impacts the whole being and dictates the way we function in our lives.
Rebecca has been working in the mental health field for over 25 years, counseling individuals, families, and groups in a variety of settings, which has allowed her to work with a highly diverse population of people. Gaining knowledge and experience in working with diversity, and being able to offer services equitably, are core values of hers – which of course involves ongoing examination and acknowledgment of her limitations.
Inga received her graduate degree from the USF in Counseling Psychology and her bachelor’s degree from the UCSC in Feminist Studies. Both universities emphasize a systems-thinking approach which has traveled with Inga into her psychotherapy practice. Systems thinking paints a fuller picture of how we navigate the world within and around us. In psychology this is known as a bio-psycho-spiritual-social approach to therapy, this means we explore what it means to be you from multiple lenses.
Annette is grateful for the opportunity to guide her clients through life transitions, grief and loss, anxiety, depression, painful relationships and other life challenges. These are all common & natural human experiences that can benefit from the support of a skilled therapist. She has a particular affinity for helping people create healthy, safe and secure relationships.
As a therapist, Lauren believes that developing safety is a crucial first step in beginning therapy, and that a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation of ongoing therapeutic work. By creating a safe, accepting, and non-judgmental space, Lauren helps support individuals as they take steps toward exploring challenges at their own pace.

Whether her clients struggle with anxiety, depression, grief, or any other life challenge, she partners with them in a collaborative way.
