Our Team

As a team we are committed to cultivating a culture of inclusion. What this means is an active commitment to creating a group experience (and society) where all can feel safe, seen and valued. It also means we are committed to staying open to learning and listening to the voices that are often left unheard and working collaboratively to deepen our ability to honor the experiences of all humankind and work toward equity and dignity for all. 

We welcome all and aim to celebrate the diversities inherent to our human existence. We welcome and affirm all gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, racial, ethnic or cultural identities, relationship structure preferences, neurodiversities, spiritual/religious affiliations, body abilities, education levels, financial means and ages.

Lynde Ross

My aim is to provide compassionate care by way of authentic regard for each client and their unique experiences. I use a strengths-based integrative approach to therapy, and I strongly believe that everyone has the capacity for growth and change. My heart is to provide a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their truest self. I work closely with my clients to integrate the whole of their experiences of the body, mind, and spirit into our work.
