What We're About

Watch Our Founders Interview

A note from our founders

We came together to start the practice in 2017. We were passionate about the craft of therapy, but saw issues with the field that we felt we could improve upon. We wanted to make therapy more accessible, more queer affirming, and more relational. We wanted to create a group practice where therapists felt truly supported and part of a team.

We were inspired by the concept of expansion. We believe that when we are truly seen by a trusted other and provided an affirming and empowering space, that we have an unlimited capacity to heal, to grow, and to expand ourselves. We ask our therapists to always stay curious about what is happening in the moment, in the here and now. This allows the client the space to explore and expand their definitions of self.

We were driven to provide a space for the queer community in particular. We wanted to go beyond checking a box for queer affirming therapy to creating a practice that was committed to the community, where queer people could bring their whole selves into therapy. Queer theory asks that we look at the world in a new way, not through a heteronormative lens, but from each individual perspective which is unique and perfect. We are passionate about understanding the unique challenges of our community and helping our queer clients to heal.

Above all, we strive to create an experience of warmth at Expansive, from our therapy staff to our admin team. We want you to feel comfortable and supported at our practice, and we always welcome feedback.

Openness and curiosity

We believe in keeping an open mind to the unique experience of every individual. Curiosity is the guiding force in our sessions

Therapists as humans

We see our therapists as human beings who are working on themselves too. We encourage our therapists to acknowledge their growth edges and keep working on them. We seek to build healing relationships with our clients from a place of shared humanity.

Affirming Care

We strive to make an affirming therapy space for all clients regardless of identity, background, and orientation. In particular, we aim to create an experience for the queer community that is empowering and free of judgment

Collaboration

While we follow the strictest codes of confidentiality, we believe in the importance of therapists receiving support from their colleagues and being part of a team that fosters continued development.
