A note from HAVN founders, Kat & Sarah

We’re approaching the two year anniversary of our group practice, created as a home for “curious & courageous” clinicians and clients alike. What an experience it’s already been as we continue to learn and grow as business owners, therapists and humans! This year also added the additional role of “mothers” to that list, as we both welcomed baby boys into the world within three months of each other- apparently we do everything together!

While we originally intended for this to be the year that HAVN’s brick & mortar would be established, offering new ways to grow and connect with you in person, 2020 obviously had other plans in mind. This global health crisis has asked us to reevaluate the way that clients and therapists access and utilize therapy, and has demonstrated that therapy can actually happen anywhere, not just in beautifully curated office spaces. As such, our team has been able to continue working virtually with our clients through these months where it isn’t safe to meet in person, expanding our reach to clients who wouldn’t have ordinarily been able to make it into our HAVN offices. Virtual therapy is sometimes be messy, inconvenient, awkward and rife with technical difficulties, but hey, isn’t life? Isn’t the same true for being human?

In addition, these past few months, in particular, have highlighted the necessity of continuing to look critically at our business through the lens of racial & cultural competency. Now and always, we are committed to examining our offerings, the content we share, our resources, and the range of humans and experiences that our team represents to ensure that as we continue to evolve and expand in the years to come, we grow in integrity and in alignment with our values of feminism, social justice, inclusivity and anti-racism.

In courage & curiosity,

K & S
