We also serve adults who might be experiencing difficulties related to childhood trauma and loss. As a hybrid practice, we offer both in-person and video/phone (tele-therapy) sessions.

what we do


In combination with play and expressive art therapies, we use brain-body based approaches, such as Yoga Therapy, Reiki Energy Healing, and Brainspotting, to address social, emotional, and behavior difficulties.

For mental health professionals seeking full licensure, we offer clinical supervision.
