About Us

 

 

BOTH/AND Resources, PLLC is a collaborative group of mental health professionals who provide therapy services, clinical supervision and consultation. We are all independent contractors committed to providing a successful experience to those we serve. Our work is guided by these organizing principles:

 

  • We take a relational and systemic approach to our work
  • We help you find your own best solutions to life's challenges
  • We embrace the diversity of culture, lifelstyle, spirituality, age, and life experiences
  • We take a BOTH/AND position in an either/or world.
