Potentia Therapy is a unique space inspired by a vision to provide specialized, collaborative and highly personalized outpatient care under the same roof.

We treat the whole person and the whole spectrum of mental health issues.

Our Care Commitment:

The team at Potentia is guided and informed by the following principals:


No matter the struggle, the story, the details we are committed to offering respect, compassion and dignity in the presence of your courage to show up and ask for help.

Quality + Specialized Care.

We are committed to continued study, training, and consultation so we can offer you the best care inspired by innovation, creativity and informed by gold standard research.


We strive to offer timely correspondence and communication to our clients. Your life is full and sometimes overwhelming. We get it and we do our best to support you as you navigate the logistics of therapy.


A relationship with a psychotherapist is unlike any other relationship – highly personal + relational and also governed closely by laws and ethics. When you choose to work with a psychotherapist, you are receiving care that is informed these laws and ethics which are in place to protect you and make sure you are receiving care that helps and does not harm. We take these laws and ethics seriously and err on the conservative side – even if inconvenient or awkward – because you deserve so.

Self Care.

We know this term has become nebulous – but not to us. We are committed to our own healing process, rest, play, creativity and community. We know we can only support our clients as far as we support our own well-being. We live the value of self-care – though imperfectly – and believe it is essential, not a luxury.

If you are ready for change and to do the hard work – then we are ready to partner with you as you begin or continue this journey.

We know choosing a therapist is an important decision. We value your trust and look forward to partnering with you towards living a life of true health: mind, body and soul.
