Lavonda Handy, LMFT

Owner & Therapist

My ideal client, whether individuals, couples, or family, are people looking to connect with themselves and others authentically. Those relationships are the most connected in love and the continued discovery of their true selves.

I love to help clients dealing with anxiety as they work through life phases. I believe in helping clients to recognize their inherent worth, strengths and to evaluate what is accessible to them.

Alexis Moses, LPC

Licensed Therapist 

My ideal client is someone who is willing to do the work that growth and change require, no matter how slow that process may be. I am a huge advocate of progress over perfection, with the understanding that even progress takes time and has many hill and valleys.


“At all times, people are doing one of two things: they’re showing love, or they’re crying out for it”

Exie Adams, MFT

Pre-Licensed Therapist 

My passion is helping women of color as I believe they are the backbone of our society and are deserving of all the support, healing, and empowerment.

"We have to talk about liberating minds as well as liberating society."

Eliza Farran, MFT

Pre-Licensed Therapist 


I enjoy collaborating with people who are managing the history and impacts of loneliness, trauma, and anxiety, and who wish to work toward greater joy and connection; to themselves, their loved ones, and their communities.


“When we can see ourselves as we truly are and accept ourselves, we build the necessary foundation for self-love…whether we learn how to love ourselves and others will depend on the presence of a loving environment. Self-love cannot flourish in isolation.”
