Our mission is to shift contemplation into meaning, to help clients elevate their purpose, and to support choices that align with deeply held values. When clients essensuate, they lean into their most authentic nature. Through our trusted alliance, all aspects of life’s prior experience and future intention are relevant. The unfolding process explores physical, emotional, social, cognitive, and spiritual dimensions and is focused on engaging innate wisdom.

Our Values

Commitment to Curiosity and Compassion

Confidence through Creative Intelligence and Highly Personalized Support

Courageous and Authentic Connection to Self and Others

Responding to Challenges with Calmness, Clarity, and Candor

Growth in Connection

The manifestation of your most important personal, social, and professional goals requires your attention.

We can help.

Transformation surfaces the stories of life. Clients often rediscover blocked inherent strengths and natural abilities. Clarifying historical relational patterns and reconciling core wounds is referred to as the “inner work” that makes space for meaningful change and healing. Contextualized psychotherapy calls for commitment (and recommitment) to self-awareness, deep curiosity, cognitive flexibility, and openness to self-compassion.

Each team member brings their own sensibility. Yet we all maintain that our clients hold deep inner intelligence. By mapping out your situation, we will explore the factors within your power to control and highlight the path to your essential nature.

Together, we will make it to the other side… It’s better over there!​
