We offer therapy to children, teens and young adults aged 10-18, providing support in the midst of intense change. We work with youth who: have experienced trauma, are queer or trans-questioning, or who just need support. We also offer family counseling, sibling therapy and child-parent therapy.
We ourselves are queer therapists, so please feel at home! We provide individual and couples’ therapy to lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, nonbinary, queer, questioning, intersex, allies, asexual and pansexual persons of all ages. We provide excellent resources for gender transitioning.
Do you have caregiver burnout? We work with many social workers, housing activists, nurses, teachers, foster and adoptive parents, and people caring for loved ones with disabilities. We can help give you the tools and support you need to manage stress and feel heard and supported in your life.
About Pulse Wellness
We have seen first-hand that oppressive systems cause great harm and we believe in the reparative need for both social justice and personal healing. We also believe that some of this repair from trauma begins at home, and that caregivers need extra support to do this important work. Our work is in helping our clients not only to survive, but to thrive.

As a Black, gay clinician with intersectional identities, I have firsthand knowledge of the roles race, culture and gender play in who has access to therapy and how it’s provided. My commitment is to create a safe space and normalize therapy for everyone who has encountered marginalization.
Pulse Wellness supports the current #BLM movement and believes in non-violent action that shifts policy towards a better and safer world for all. We are working each day to be better allies, listeners and social workers. Click to read more on our values. #saytheirnames #blacklivesmatter #whatmatters2021
