Welcome! We’re so glad you’re here. 


Emerge Wellness is an LGBTQIA+ owned and operated therapy practice since 2013. Our mission is to facilitate profound healing and personal growth by offering a sanctuary for mental and emotional well-being. 


Our practice is rooted in the principles of safety, choice, trustworthiness, and empowerment, ensuring a respectful and supportive therapeutic environment. We recognize the connection between systems of oppression and mental health. 


We are committed to fostering an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, de-colonial environment that centers the safety and healing of marginalized groups. All of our therapists are a part of the queer community or queer allied with a variety of intersectional identities, so you don’t have to explain your gender identity, sexuality, or relationship style to us. 


We consider it both an honor and privilege to serve the diverse needs of the queer community! 



Individual Therapy

Therapy is tailored to meet your needs! We are interested in knowing and working with the entirety of your identities and experiences and helping you to understand and honor all parts of you. Some aspects of therapy that we specialize in include:

  • Exploring your sexuality identity, including (but definitely not limited to): lesbian, gay, bisexual, queer,  asexual, or aromantic
  • Exploring your gender, including (but definitely not limited to): transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary, gender fluid, or agender
  • Coming out to family, friends, work, or partners as LGBTQIA+
  • Exploring societal, institutionalized, and internalized oppressions associated with being LGBTQIA+
  • Preparing medical gender transition, your own or a loved one
  • Writing letters of support for medical gender transition

Relational Therapy

Couples, Triads, Family Therapy

Relational Therapy is focused on the dynamics between two or more people. In couples therapy we offer sessions for people who are looking to better understand one another and create more of what you want in your partnership. In this safe environment, you can explore your challenges more openly, find new ways to compassionately relate to one another, and increase the health of your relationship. We welcome polyamorous and kinky-identified couples, relationship groups of more than two, or any form of open or non-traditional relationship formats.


Our Difference

LGBTQ Owned & Operated

We are an LGBTQ+ owned and operated business; as such, our practitioners are all LGBTQ+ identified.

A mind body approach.

We treat the whole-person rather than just attending to the mind. By attending to the mind and body, we help our clients experience a sense of deep safety within themselves.

Our therapists believe in continued education.

All of our therapists engage in ongoing continuing education to ensure that we offer the absolute best care.
