Find Your Refuge in Therapy

At the Growlery, we collaborate with you to figure out what kind of approach will best help you and your unique background, life history, and goals. We’ll come up with a plan to address what you want to change in your life, and work together to decide exactly how we’ll accomplish that plan.

We take an integrative, holistic approach to understanding problems. The mind & body are closely connected, and we can’t work on one while ignoring the other. This means we may refer you to and consult with other providers like psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, medical doctors, nutritionists, acupuncturists, and other bodywork and health professionals.

Our therapists are trained in and practice from a variety of theoretical approaches including Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy and Schema Therapy.

We work with clients on many types of issues including:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger & irritability
  • Impulsivity & compulsive behaviors
  • Emotional sensitivity
  • Relationship problems
  • Self-harm and suicidal thoughts & behaviors
  • Childhood trauma and attachment issues
  • Personality disorders
  • Life transitions
  • Gender identity and LGBTQ issues
The Growlery

“Sit down, my dear,” said Mr Jarndyce. “This, you must know, is the Growlery. When I am out of humour, I come and growl here.” …“When I am deceived or disappointed in — the wind, and it’s Easterly, I take refuge here. The Growlery is the best used room in the house.”
— Charles’ Dickens “Bleak House” (Chapter 8)
