Areas of Focus

Mindfulness and Yoga

Brainspotting & EMDR

The goal of these modalities is to take you deep into your nervous system (where trauma is stored) and help it release so you aren’t spending all of your energy just managing symptoms.

Mindfulness and Yoga

Relational & Couples Therapy

Relationships are hard. It can be difficult to navigate relationships with ourselves, family members, friends, co-workers and partners. Our therapists help explore these dynamics and gain skills that can improve the way we experience relationships.


Chronic Pain & Illness

Living with chronic pain & illness can be debilitating and mentally draining. Unresolved trauma is stored in the body and can often be expressed through chronic pain & illness.

Trauma Therapy Intensives

The focus is on regulating the client’s nervous system (where trauma is stored) and processing trauma with brain-body based modalities. Treatment plans are curated to the client’s specific needs and therapeutic goals.

Psychedelics have been used in holistic medicine and for spiritual practices by various cultures for thousands of years. We offer safe, supportive and legal access for clients wishing to use these powerful medicines in their healing journey.
