Justin Juárez (he/him/his) is a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. He uses a culturally affirming and trauma-informed approach to his clients to create a safe space for a client to reach their goals. There are many reasons people seek therapy, but he believes people are the experts of their lives and works as a collaborator to explore and/or build upon their inner strengths and resources. Because we all live complex lives, he uses an integrated approach to therapy to tailor the relationship to his client's needs. Whether people are experiencing the effects of anxiety, depression, or trauma, Justin seeks to create a refuge to promote healing, self-love, inner peace, growth, and change for adolescents, adults, and the spectrum of relationships we experience as humans. He also has been trained in EMDR, a treatment for reprocessing traumatic memories.

Jaclyn Simon (she/her/hers) is a Marriage and Family Therapy Associate. She is psychodynamically oriented and believes that truly effective treatment must be customized to your unique self and needs. As such, she draws from a blend of evidence-based modalities, including mindfulness training, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Internal Family Systems (IFS), and somatic/body scan techniques. She works with people going through life transitions, depression, anxiety, postpartum adjustment, chronic pain, attachment, trauma, health anxiety and people transitioning out of residential treatment centers. Her approach is intuitive, holistic, compassionate, and approachable. She is inspired by mind body integration, inner child healing, and cultivating self love. She offers a concrete path towards developing inner self-compassion, which is is the scientifically supported healing ingredient in freeing up the burdened parts of ourselves. She is also trained in EMDR, a powerful treatment for trauma.

Khristian Durham (she/her/hers) is a Professional Clinical Counselor Associate. She works from a cognitive behavioral approach with some mindfulness techniques used throughout. She believes that people generally want to be happy, effective and successful in their lives and that they already have within themselves the capacity and potential for change and adherence to that change. People possess substantial personal expertise and wisdom regarding themselves and already “know” what they need to do. Yet, as we all can relate, doing it is easier said than done. Psychotherapy can support individuals to most effectively use their resources to increase self-understanding, to make health behavior changes, to improve decision-making, to solve problems, and to create paths to the lives they want.
