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:
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

“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)
