Though we tremble before uncertain futures
may we meet illness, death and adversity with strength
may we dance in the face of our fears.
- Gloria E. Anzaldúa
Mosaic Counseling Collective (MCC) seeks to create a space for healing and transformation for individuals, couples and groups of all backgrounds. The psychotherapists who work at MCC are Masters level counselors who are social justice-oriented and offer a wide range of treatment approaches including psychodynamic therapy, systems work, multicultural counseling, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness, trauma therapy, narrative therapy as well as others. In our work together, we will be mindful and respectful of the various communities to which you belong and that have shaped your identity. Through a collaborative therapeutic relationship, our therapists are committed to offering you quality mental health counseling at a reasonable cost.
Equity - We believe that all people are created with dignity. We hope to promote equity through a commitment to social justice, acknowledging and engaging the impact of oppression and social context on your well-being.
Awareness - Self-awareness and insight development leads to a greater sense of ownership, choice, and participation in your life.
Accessibility - In consideration of potential barriers to seeking out counseling services (e.g. financial, cultural stigma, differences in values), we offer a sliding-scale based on financial need and work to foster a non-judgmental and open-minded environment.
Strength - Lucille Clifton writes, “Come celebrate with me that everyday something has tried to kill me and has failed.” We acknowledge that oppression limits us in having the life that we might hope for and we also believe deeply in human resiliency. We aim to help you in accessing your inner resources for growth and change.
Collaboration - As therapists we seek to work in partnership with you and alongside your other healthcare providers to assist you in achieving your goals.
Holistic approach - Our work together incorporates an approach that considers the whole person--spiritual, psychological, emotional, social and bodily elements. Therapy is not a cure-all, and healing comes in many forms. We encourage you to seek out other meaningful practices and resources (e.g. exercise, body work, prayer, meditation, community involvement).
