Languages Spoken:

We are living in changing times. Our lives require a different set of needs than those of the generations before us. Seeking psychotherapy is not easy. Many individuals before their first session experience rejection, shaming, blaming, and hurt that can not be described in words. You deserve to experience care from some one who is worthy of hearing your story. You need a place where you do not have to defend your value, or be diminished. We are here to help.
Belonging is something that many of us are looking for. Healing our pain in isolation can feel overwhelming. Especially, when we feel unheard, ignored, and disrespected in our homes, at our places of employment, and in the relationships that matter the most. We all want a place that feels safe.
At Roots Seeds and Branches, we listen without judgement and hold space for your transformation. Using empirically supported research, We provide care that values every part of you and respects where you came from. You deserve the life you want. Contact us today.
