About My Clients

Our name came from the perspective that when doing this work, you begin at the roots with increasing self awareness and then you can begin to grow, or rise. Our clients come to us for a variety of different reasons and severity of symptoms. Some of signficiant challenges in their lives that they want to process, develop coping tools, and grow. Other clients come to see us because they know that they can feel better and want to feel better so move in that direction.

My Background and Approach

I started this practice in 2016, after working in a variety of settings, because I wanted to create a practice with intention. I am doing my own work to be my best self, and I see therapy as a journey to which my client and I can embark together. I am beginning to bring new therapists in who share those values. I am excited to create a community of helpers who dig deep, do the work, and who inspire and encourage our clients and our community. I am inspired by Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Person-Centered Theory, and the work by Aflred Adler in which we indentify the role that we play and how we move through our lives.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a mom of two little boys, and a wife and in those two roles I have learned so much about myself. I support various social justice platforms, but ultimately I value everyone's right to choose what makes sense for them. Choose what to do with your body, pronouns to which you identify, who you are attracted to, and anything else. I honor and recognize the privilege I have, and I believe so deeply that we have to do that.
