Patty Adams

I am a cis queer white woman, a politicized healer, and a commited anti-racist, collective liberation worker. I have worked for more than twenty years in social justice and liberation movements, so I am deeply familiar with the challenges of engaging in sustainable politicized work rooted in anti-oppression values. I work with a range of folks including immigrants, Spanish speakers, people with trauma, people with addiction, people of all gender identies/expressions and sexual orientations. I have extensive training in embodied approaches, and incorporate holistic and alternative wisdom streams along with tools of traditional talk therapy. Currently I offer a self-pay rate of $55.

J. Louise Newton, LCSW, SEP:

I am a warm and charismatic provider and am excited to become a resource and support for you. As a relational therapist I value connection and empathy. Instead of the traditional expert-patient model, which is based on separation and hierarchy, the relational approach emphasizes collaboration and trust.I also strongly subscribe to an anti-oppression framework in my clinical work and personal relationships. I am a member of the queer community and long-time ally to members of the transgender community. I provide LGBTQQIA affirming therapy and evaluations and referral for transgender individuals seeking medical health care. I am a member in good standing of the World Professional Association for Transgender Heath.
