Women's Health | How We Help

As a female-owned and run business, we know the challenges women face today are unique and deserve an individualized approach. Our work is grounded in a deep understanding of and sensitivity to your needs. We strive to create a safe, comfortable space to help women, and their partners, address various issues and support them through major life transitions.

Our specially trained and experienced therapists take an empathic, research-based approach to help you work through anxiety, depression, sexual and intimacy issues, and issues around the transition to parenthood. We understand that reaching out for help, especially around sensitive issues like sexuality or parenthood, is not easy. We structure our practice to be as accommodating as possible, with sessions available 7 days a week, in office and via phone or video chat. We are proud to offer a female-centric approach that provides the understanding, empathy, and practical tools you need to thrive.
