Our Behavioral Health Services
Our behavioral health providers offer culturally-affirming therapy designed to bring meaningful and lasting improvement to the lives of all people in our community. Our licensed providers are highly qualified and experienced in working with LGBTQ+ people, which means we take special consideration for the unique circumstances and challenges of sexual, gender, and romantic minority (SGRM) communities.
Our Providers’ Approach To Therapy
Ian’s primary therapeutic approaches are Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, EMDR, Solution Focused Therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy. His philosophy is that treatment is not “one-size fits all” and believes that in order to achieve long lasting change he must develop a plan of care together with those he works with. He utilizes a trauma informed, person centered approach to help others realize their full potential. He works closely with clients on a path of their choosing to help them achieve their goals. He finds that it is vital to the counseling relationship that we honor the unique experiences of all individuals and recognize the strengths that have brought them this far.
Mattie’s approach to therapy uses a feminist theory lens, working from a relational cultural perspective that recognizes the way power, oppression and intersecting identities impact our lives, worldviews and ability to make change. They believe at the core of a positive and successful therapy experience is a trusting therapeutic relationship that is client-centered, collaborative and inspires growth. Therapy can be used as a tool to empower clients in utilizing their strengths and processing their lived experience to help them gain insight and understanding around their values, beliefs and identities. Mattie utilizes various interventions and techniques from different theories based on their client’s individual goals – as there is no one size fits all approach to therapy. Cultural competency, social justice and advocacy are important to Mattie, especially working with marginalized communities. To create and maintain a safe therapeutic relationship they continually reflect on their own identities, educate themselves, and are open to transparency and processing with clients around their work together.
In working with the LGBTQ+ community there are often more experiences of trauma – individually, historically and systemically. Mattie uses trauma-focused approaches that draw from attachment theory, polyvagal theory and mindfulness, but also incorporates Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and motivational interviewing in their therapeutic process. Mattie also finds working with the trans community deeply rewarding and is passionate about being able to provide cultural competency and gender affirming care through lived experience.
Kayla’s therapeutic approach is relational-based and incorporates psychodynamic, cognitive and humanistic foundations. This approach sees each individual as a complex and unique human, with the goal to collaborate in exploring a person’s experiences and how those experiences impact their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, goals and relationships. Kayla centers on trauma-informed and strengths-based models, including identifying and highlighting individual’s inherent and learned strengths that can continue to expand. They believe this process also necessitates exploring the impact of power and oppression on individuals and communities, including in the therapeutic relationship. She is committed to providing identity-affirming care for LGBTQIA+ folx and feels honored when being able to join someone on their journey of healing, empowerment and exploration.
Andrew works from a client-centered and trauma-informed cognitive-behavioral approach of therapy with heavy influence from internal family systems. Their main goal in therapy is to help examine yourself and your experiences in a more self-compassionate light and begin practicing new ways of thinking and feeling about yourself that allows you to let go of your shame, anger, and hurt from people in your life… especially yourself. They believe that having a positive relationship and experience of yourself, and the parts of your personality inside you, is one of the first and most substantial steps towards positive change you can make. They view their role as coaching you around navigating these elements of your personality and teaching you how to keep this ball rolling well past your time in therapy.
Beyond that, what you see is what you get! Andrew believes that therapy is most effective when clients have fun, so they bring as much humor, sarcasm, and lightness to our work as they can while you sit with very real pains, struggles, and traumas. They also love to bring metaphor and simile into therapy to help you see things from new angles and help teach you advanced psychological terms/phenomena in ways that you can personally understand and work with.
