Therapy is like having a personal coach for your mental and emotional well-being. It's a chance for you to talk one-on-one with a trained professional about whatever's on your mind, whether it's stress, relationships, self-esteem, or anything else. Together, you set goals and figure out how to reach them using different techniques and exercises. It's all about creating a safe space for you to explore, learn, and grow, with someone there to support you every step of the way.

What is therapy?

What can therapy help with?

And more!  If you need help determining whether one of our practitioners can support you on your journey to emotional health, please contact us here.

The first step involves making the decision to seek therapy, which may involve recognizing that you need support, researching therapists, and scheduling an appointment. By visiting our site, you're already taking this first step! Once you've chosen a therapist and set a date, you might prepare mentally by thinking about what you want to discuss or achieve in therapy.

1. Decision & Preparation

How does therapy work?

The second step is attending your first therapy session. In this session, you'll meet your therapist, discuss confidentiality and the therapy process, and begin sharing your reasons for seeking therapy. It's a chance for you and the therapist to get to know each other, establish rapport, and start outlining your goals and expectations for therapy.

2. Initial Session

After the initial session, therapy typically progresses through regular sessions where you continue to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences with the therapist. Together, you work towards your goals, learn new coping skills, and navigate challenges. Ongoing engagement may involve attending sessions weekly or biweekly, actively participating in therapy exercises, and reflecting on your progress and insights between sessions.

Individual Talk Therapy

Talk therapy is a form of mental health treatment where individuals engage in conversations with a trained therapist to explore and understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Through open dialogue, clients are encouraged to express their concerns, gain insights into their emotions, and develop coping strategies to address challenges and improve their overall well-being. Talk therapy can encompass various approaches tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each individual. It provides a supportive and non-judgmental space for clients to process their experiences, learn new skills, and foster personal growth.

Art therapy is a therapeutic approach that taps into expressing feelings without words. Often times, when we experience trauma, the prefrontal cortex (verbal part of our brain) shuts down, making it difficult to access verbal forms of expression. Art therapy is a way to explore these feelings in a way that can feel less threatening than words. There is no prior art experience needed for this approach. This can also be combined with traditional therapy, EMDR, somatic therapy and/ or Reiki, treating mind, body and spirit simultaneously.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) theory is a psychotherapeutic approach that conceptualizes the mind as a system composed of various subpersonalities or "parts." According to this theory, parts develop as adaptive responses to life experiences and serve different functions. The goal of IFS is to help individuals understand and reconcile the dynamics between these parts, fostering harmony and balance within the internal system. Through guided exploration, clients learn to identify and communicate with their different parts and recognize their unique perspectives and needs.

Interpersonal Neurobiology (IPNB) integrates various disciplines to understand the human mind. It explores how our relationships shape our brains and how the brain, in turn, shapes relationships. IPNB combines insights from neuroscience, psychology, psychiatry, and other fields to comprehend the complex interplay between the brain, the mind, and relationships. It emphasizes the importance of integration, or linking differentiated parts, as fundamental to both mental health and the well-being of societies. IPNB offers a framework for understanding and promoting healthy development, both individually and collectively.

Existential therapy is a philosophical approach to psychotherapy that aims to help individuals confront the challenges and uncertainties of life by examining their beliefs, values, and choices. Therapists using this approach encourage clients to explore their unique experiences and perspectives, helping them to cultivate self-awareness, embrace their autonomy, and ultimately find meaning and purpose in their lives. For Existentialism, the goal of life is not to be problem-free. It is instead the achievement of a dramatic life filled with sufficient goodness and meaning to make the inevitable hardships of life worth bearing.

Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing is a highly researched approach that uses bilateral stimulation (such as hand buzzers or a light bar that is followed with your eyes) to stimulate the brain into Adaptive Information Processing. When trauma or persistent stressors happen in our life it can disrupt the adaptive memory system causing memories to be stored in a dysfunctional manner. EMDR gradually moves reprocessed memories to the long term left hemisphere memory system and away from the right short term memory system that holds emotional and physiological stress responses where it remained stuck, therefore decreasing symptoms.

Reiki is the Japanese translation for “universal life force energy”. It is based on the principle that the reiki practitioner is channeling this universal energy to the client to activate a natural physical and emotional healing process. Reiki is spiritual in a sense, but not related to any form of organized religion. Many Reiki Masters, such as myself, may incorporate crystals and essential oils as well as their own intuitive thoughts that may arise during the process. Reiki is relaxing, grounding, and holistic; may also be referred to as “massage for the soul”.


Unlike traditional CBT, which primarily targets surface-level thoughts and behaviors, Inference-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I-CBT) is a therapeutic approach that focuses on identifying and challenging the underlying beliefs and assumptions that influence a person's thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. By examining these underlying inferences and evaluating their accuracy and validity, clients can gain insight into how their interpretations shape their perceptions and reactions to situations. 

Inference-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (I-CBT)

Polyvagal Theory offers a comprehensive understanding of the autonomic nervous system's role in social behavior, emotional regulation, and physiological responses to stress. The theory suggests that in response to threat, the nervous system orchestrates adaptive strategies, including fight, flight, and freeze responses, mediated by different branches of the vagus nerve. Practitioners use this theory to guide interventions that promote feelings of safety and connection, activating the part of the nervous system associated with relaxation and social engagement.
