Our Therapists

You are marvelously complex, and there is only one You. When you meet with a therapist at NVision You, all facets of your life will be considered.

  • Intrapersonal - the experiences inside you: your body, thoughts, and emotions 

  • Interpersonal - the encounters around you: your family, romantic partnerships, friends, work, and community

  • Transpersonal - the identities and messages that permeate through you: your gender, culture, religious and spiritual beliefs, economic circumstances, generational cohort, and values

We are all trained in a multi-systemic approach and do not view our clients through a one-dimensional lens or a “one size fits all” philosophy.
