Our Team.

“When setting out on a journey, don’t seek advice form those that have never left home.” – Rumi


At The Riverwalk Group we have assembled a talented, committed, insightful and compassionate team of mental health professionals that are at the core of our personalized and unique therapeutic collaboration.

The Riverwalk Group is a team of committed, multi-dispensary and talented mental health professionals. Our group believes compassion, creativity and collaboration are essential keys to therapeutic growth. In addition, we understand there are various ways to receive support, so in addition to therapy for children, adolescents, adults, couples and families, we offer many innovative programs, support groups, workshops and retreats. We do not believe in “one size fits all” and our therapy and programming is always tailored to the individual and/or group we are specifically collaborating with.

As a team, we meet routinely to discuss current research, review techniques, and share the latest publications and books. We frequently attend conferences and workshops to integrate the most current research into our work and bring back to our patients. Some of us do not limit our work to helping only clients, but feel strongly about educating and supervising future therapists and do so in diverse settings. In addition to the private practice setting, we have worked in many different settings, including hospitals, agencies and schools.

Our team is extensively trained with diverse experience in numerous therapies and integrative modalities. As an example of just some of these, we bring backgrounds in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), IFS (Internal Family Systems), CBT (Cognitive Behavior Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), Integrative Trauma, Mindfulness, Family Therapy and Couples Therapy. Please see our Services and How We Treat (“Modalities”) pages for more information.

The therapists at The Riverwalk Group always uphold the highest level of professional standards, and are grateful to do what we love every day.
