We believe in therapy that helps brilliant Black folks not just survive, but thrive.

You have always been resilient. But, what about flourishing?
__ You take care of everyone around you - at work, at home, with your friends. You are the glue. You are the rock. You are the strong Black archetype AND You have a hard time focusing on yourself and your own emotions and needs.

__ You hold yourself to standards so high you find yourself exhausted, overwhelmed, and burnt out AND Sometimes, you just need space to process what it's like to exist in environments that weren't built for you. You want to unpack all the racism, sexism, homophobia, and other -isms you have to deal with on a daily basis.

__ You are high-achieving and always strive for more. You want better for yourself and those you love and you hustle to make that happen. You know the mantra "twice as hard for half as much" by heart AND You wonder what it would feel like to hold boundaries, tap into your joy, make space for your emotions, and truly rest.

__ You have experienced adversity, stress, trauma, and challenges--and you just keep going. Nothing holds you back  or slows you down AND Maybe it should. Maybe you want space where you can be truly vulnerable, feel seen, cry, vent, laugh, and problem-solve. You crave an authentic space to talk about what burdens you and traumas that never got discussed.

That's where we come in. 
Exercise Group

You have come to the right place.

Our team of badass, warm, authentic therapist create space just for you.


Maybe it's your first time to therapy and you don't know what to expect - we'll help you every step of the way.


Maybe you have had experiences in therapy that weren't great. The therapist didn't understand you, your needs, your culture, your life. We work with every client in a collaborative, evidence-based way.


Yeah, we have the degrees, credentials, and background in CBT, DBT, Brainspotting for Trauma. Beyond that, we really want to get to know and truly connect with you. 

We have wide and deep training in many areas and we specialize in everything from LGBTQ+, kink-aware, and poly individual and couples work (looking at you, Dr. Lana) to performance and trauma psychology for perfectionistic folks in Spanish, English, or both (that's Antonio) to high-achieving BIPOC woman processing complex trauma (hey, Dr. Janelle!) to helping Black women and girls feel, express, and gain harmony with their full spectrum of emotions (that's you, Shabrial) to wellness coaching for first gen and immigrant folks who want to see progress and thrive with accountability, challenge, and support (Sruthi's great at that) and sex and relationship therapy that celebrates the spectrum of Black love (Dr. Tamora is wonderful). 


But more importantly we get to know the intricacies of you and approach our work in a way that honors the complexity and intersectionality of who you are, how you feel, and what you want and need from your life.

We are an intentionally small team of therapists committed to inclusive, evidenced-based, real, and warm therapeutic work. If you reach out, you will probably talk to our founder, Dr. Janelle S. Peifer, and she'll be happy to answer any questions you have (finances, scheduling, who'd be a good fit for me?!), get you set up for a free 15-minute consultation call, or offer some other referral options if you need them.
