How Therapy Works

How Therapy Works

Therapy is a journey that you and your therapist take together. During trying times, having someone who will walk alongside you is extremely helpful. Your therapist connects with you and tunes in to your unique challenges with the goal of drawing out the healing potential you already have inside of you. Often times, the answers we seek are already inside of us, and your therapist works to help you unlock those answers. Our therapists listen deeply and actively, seeking to connect your present challenges with underlying fears and desires.

What Does a Typical Session Look Like?

A typical session will consist of you and your therapist in a private, quiet room. Your therapist will listen empathetically to your challenges, learn about you and connect with you. Your therapist will share insights and provide support unique to their therapeutic style.

How We’re Different

Sanctuary differs from other therapy practices in that we focus on building meaningful relationships with our clients as part of the therapeutic process. We don’t offer band-aid solutions, only lasting and meaningful change. We see each person who visits us as a whole, complete person and not as a manifestation of a diagnosis. Sanctuary is a safe haven where we provide practical, client-centered therapy that always proceeds at your individual pace.

Therapeutic Styles We Use

At Sanctuary our therapists are all person-centered; meaning we are empathetic, invested partner in your wellness. Our therapists are all knowledgeable, competent, welcoming people who are versed in and sensitive to all cultural, social, creative, and spiritual backgrounds. Therapeutic styles we utilize include:

  • Psychodynamic therapy
  • Dialectic Behavioral therapy
  • Cognitive Behavioral therapy
  • Humanistic therapy
  • Existential therapy
  • Feminist therapy
  • Eye-movement desensitization & reprocessing (EMDR) therapy
  • Expressive arts therapy


Real therapy. Real connection. Real convenience.
