We value empowering our clients through collaboration, activism, and in cultivating their healthy sense of self and gifts.

Our Providers are Wounded Healers

Soma believes in hiring “wounded healers.” In other words, our providers can speak freely about their own recovery journey with their clients. In turn, the client and the provider connect on healing their own trauma in a safe, professional and clinically meaningful way. We “practice what we preach” and hope to inspire clients as we are living examples of the healing that can happen.

We believe in our own ongoing journey of healing. Learning about innovative therapy methods is important to us as well. Similarly, creating the most up-to-date and effective treatment practices possible for the client is extremely important.

Our Treatment isn’t One-Sided

Soma’s staff is committed to shared treatment in which each client feels heard, valued and included in the healing process. We hold weekly team meetings to team up with staff. This ensures that we are all working toward each client’s specific goals. We teach and empower clients to speak and have a voice in their therapy process.

No Pressure

Soma does not believe in pressuring clients to give up their disorders, substance abuse, depression or anxiety. We do not pressure to fix their traumas or any issues they are not ready to fix. Instead, we support clients in achieving their own physical and emotional health goals. We meet them at their current stage of change and go from there.

Well Rounded Recovery

Soma believes in full recovery and transformation from any mental health concerns. Furthermore, it is our understanding that when clients begin to experience life without their mental health concern, their therapy journey takes on a life of its own.

We believe in nourishing and empowering their healthy selves. This helps them rediscover and find grace in all of their parts; everything belongs.

Flexible Scheduling

We’ve created flexibility in our therapy options to get rid of disruptions to your work, school and family lives. We strive to help people find healing in their current way of life.

It is important that we maintain our integrity and speak up when we disagree with something. We must respond to other’s integrity with kindness, curiosity and a desire to understand their point of view.
