Our therapy practice was created because we became aware that many Neurodivergent,/BIPOC/ 2SLGBTQIA+ folks find it easier to work with a psychotherapist that has affinity or lived experience, in addition to training, to support them in their healing.
Folks come to us because they prefer to work with a therapist who is part of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community, or who is Neurodivergent. Same with being trans, an immigrant or exploring queerness, non-monogamy, ACE, ARO and other intersectional identities.
People tell us that It is not that other therapists cannot offer support, but that it is much easier to talk to someone who directly has an embodied reference for their experience. As people become more empowered and conscious that they have choice in selecting a therapist to work with them, Clinics like ours, with a special focus, have been growing all over our province.
