Mental Health Therapy and Addiction Counseling In Person or Virtual Telehealth. Located in Doylestown, PA.
We believe there is value in being seen, heard, and understood. You matter. Your voice matters. Your lived experiences matter. We commit to providing inclusive and affirming services.
We acknowledge that we are white-bodied women who do not have the lived experience of being a person of color. If you would prefer to work with someone who shares your identity we can help you to find a therapist who meets that criteria.
We offer culturally sensitive and affirming therapeutic services for individuals who identify within the BIPOC community. We actively engage in anti-racist practices. We recognize that culture and race impact how a person interacts with the world. Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) communities have experienced historical trauma, and continue to be impacted by systems designed to remove power. Daily microaggressions as well as larger instances of racial violence can be felt in the body, mind and spirit. We offer individual and family therapy in an inclusive and supportive environment where you can work to heal from your experience and learn new ways to cope and function.
We offer affirming and inclusive therapeutic services for individuals who identify within the LGBTQIA+ community. We agree to utilize preferred names and pronouns, and to step in as your advocate when needed. Our approach to therapy embraces a positive view of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex and Asexual (LGBTQIA+) identities and relationships. We work to address the negative influences that homophobia, transphobia, and heterosexism have on the lives of LGBTQIA+ clients. We acknowledge that each person has a unique story related to personal discovery and disclosure of their sexual orientation and/or gender identity. We can provide individual or family therapy, this includes chosen family or biological family. We are here to support you. At your pace, in your time.
Black, Indigenous, and People of Color are the target of prejudice, systemic discrimination, microaggressions, and physical acts of violence due to the color of their skin. Experiences of racism not only cause distress in the moment but can also lead to mental health issues that become more severe with each experience.
