WE'RE GLAD YOU'RE HERE
Specializing in Affirming Care for all individuals, partners, and groups with an awareness of intersecting identities that make up the whole of a person.
What We Do
We serve individuals, families, and couples who are navigating their professional and personal lives while coping with stressors related to depression, anxiety, identity, relationships, trauma and workplace distress to name a few. In short, we help people cope and build new skills for thriving in life. We offer space to feel seen and heard within context where there is no "norm" for living but rather acceptance and openness for you to be who you are and were meant to be but have yet to figure out on your own. We believe our role is to validate and support you in the growth and healing you never knew was possible.
We offer a wide range of services to all individuals and specialize in supporting working professionals, college students, families, and teens. We support diverse populations around issues such as perfectionism, identity development including intersectionality of identity and other parts of self, relationship challenges, work-life balance and career struggles, as well as healing from trauma. We recognize that these issues often manifest with symptoms of anxiety, depression, addiction, grief, sleep issues and insomnia, and poor relationships with food, all areas that we assist individuals in understanding better, coping with, and managing in positive ways. Our primary goal is to help you get to a place where you feel they can thrive and be your best self!
We have a staff trained in EMDR, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, CBT treatments for insomnia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder in addition to general skills in counseling, therapy and affirming treatment for queer and non-straight individuals.
Our office is physically located in Gainesville, FL but our team serves clients throughout the state of Florida through Telehealth.
