Who are we?

Our therapists share a similar ethos: that vibrant emotional wellness comes from a healthy connection between the mind and body, and that sometimes modalities beyond talk therapy are needed to bring relief to our struggles. We’re dedicated to partnering with our clients, working holistically to determine what “health & wellness” looks like for each individual.

Kathleen Dahlen deVos
Psychotherapist & Co-Founder
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #97659

As a therapist I weave together Western psychological theory with Eastern traditions of spirituality, infusing sessions with practices to assist you in developing self compassion, mindfulness and emotional intelligence. As a trained Vinyasa Yoga teacher, a core component of my work includes guiding you back to the innate wisdom and intuition held in your body.

Let’s work together if you are struggling in transitional life phases, experiencing stress, anxiety or intimacy/relational issues, are a new or expectant parent, or grew up in an alcoholic family system.

What makes me human is that despite being a huge proponent of regular meditation and exercise for optimal mind/body wellness, trying to schedule these practices into my days is still an ongoing work-in-progress.


Sarah McLaughlin
Psychotherapist, Certified Yoga Teacher & Co-Founder
Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist #85027

As a therapist I enjoy having truly genuine connections with clients and will gladly share in a good laugh or be witness to a much needed cry. I’m interested in how anxiety impacts your thoughts, manifests in your body and how your history contributes to what you experience now. We’ll explore these areas to help you find healing and relief.

Let’s work together if you are a woman experiencing general anxiety and/or if you are noticing obsessive-compulsive tendencies including health anxiety. I also work with those who have experienced recent grief and loss.

What makes me human is my discomfort with disorganization, clutter and chaos. I’m still learning to relax into the messiness of a home, an email inbox, some relationships – the unavoidable messiness of life.


Elisenda Asencio-MacMartin
Associate Clinical Social Worker #91946 supervised by Sarah McLaughlin

As a therapist I am here to be your companion, confidant and guide. I believe that it is essential to work together to slow things down so that you can identify values, patterns and priorities, in order to work towards a life balance that feels right for you.

Let’s work together if you struggle to practice self-compassion, if the inner critic is loud and/or if you want to become aware of relationship patterns that aren’t working for you. I especially enjoy working with women as they process the end of a relationship and channel the powerful energy that can be present in turning a new page. Additionally, I welcome clients who have experienced grief & loss.

What makes me human is my tendency to get frustrated with myself if something I do doesn’t turn out exactly as I had imagined.  Also, my desire to be out in nature when I need some alone time to recharge.


Ashli Rocha
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #97042 supervised by Kathleen Dahlen deVos

As a therapist I believe that cross-cultural differences, difficult family systems, and past trauma can make navigating relationships messy and cloud our thoughts and behaviors. Together we’ll explore your story to better understand and rebuild your relationship with yourself and others.

Let’s work together if you are seeking relief from anxiety and/or depression, and are tired of unsuccessful patterns in relationships. I also work with clients who experience cross-cultural challenges. Additionally, I provide support in both Spanish and Portuguese.

What makes me human is my love of routine and predictability (while also trying to embrace the change in every day) a fruity cup of coffee, and the perseverance to live with intention daily.


Suzanne Young
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #100975 supervised by Sarah McLaughlin

As a therapist I believe that we all crave connection with others and have an innate desire to feel heard and acknowledged. As a therapist, I am humbled and honored to be a part of your journey into self-discovery and living a life with greater purpose and freedom.

Let’s work together if you are struggling with feelings of worry, self-doubt, disconnection, or stagnation in your relationships and/or other aspects of your life.

What makes me human is my desire to connect with others in a meaningful way, my curiosity for learning, and my fear of failure.


Jessica Paden
Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #239732 supervised by Kathleen Dahlen deVos

As a therapist I have a somatic orientation and strive to bring the body back into the therapy room. We process events in the body and in the mind – both components deserve our attention in the work of healing.

Let’s work together if you have a strong inner critic, feel disconnected from (or want to feel more comfortable in) your body, struggle with anxiety or depression, or want to explore deep-seated patterns in relation to others.

What makes me human is that I try to find a healthy balance in many aspects of my life, and also need seemingly constant reminders to create that balance.



Katie Schmidt
Integrative Nutrition Health Coach

As an Integrative Nutrition Health Coach I guide clients through the process of establishing a sustainable, satisfying relationship with food and body. We do this together by forming mini habits in daily life that strengthen digestion and the mind-body connection, by learning to adopt intuitive eating strategies and by increasing awareness of our choices in and out of the kitchen.

Let’s work together if you want to heal your relationship to food and body, learn how to quiet the diet chatter, connect with your body’s innate wisdom and build sustainable habits.

What makes me human is my sensitive nature and need for quiet space to recharge and reconnect with my own voice. Despite thriving off meaningful connections with clients and friends, I’m an internal processor and enjoy time to myself.
