We believe that all behavior and strong emotions have a backstory, even if it’s takes time to discover. Your story is uniquely your own and requires a tailored approach to helping you get unstuck. That’s why we passionately reject the one-size-fits-all approach to therapy. We’re here to help you take a step back, view the bigger picture, and fit together the puzzle pieces that make you who you are.

Our therapists take the time to deeply understand what you need, including the kind of approach that will best serve you. Together, we’ll empower you to grow by:

Exquisitely-Tailored Therapy is Our GOLD Standard

Collaborating closely with you to connect and befriend every exquisite part of yourself
Empowering you to become curious about who you are and what has shaped you
Supporting you in finding clarity about what you need and how to get there

You have incredible strength, power, and resilience within you to live the life you want. You just need passionate, nonjudgmental, and understanding guidance to harness it.

 Understanding that each individual is unique, our therapists are trained in various modalities to meet your specific needs. We strive to know you deeply - your personality, history, challenges, and goals. This understanding allows us to tailor therapy that facilitates your growth and healing. You're not just another client; you're a human being deserving of the right support.

At Gold Therapy, we reject the one-size-fits-all approach to therapy.
