With thousands of therapy practices to choose from, it can be hard to know what makes a practice unique. Here are some of the qualities that set us apart from our peers.
At Holding Hope, you get 8 brains in 1. All of our therapists participate in individual and group supervision every week. We collaborate as a team on cases to ensure every client is receiving the quality of care they deserve.
Therapists at Holding Hope are actively pursuing advanced training and certifications. We are constantly learning and expanding our knowledge base so we can provide the best possible care for our clients.
Not only do we love our job, but we practice what we preach. We go to therapy, too! Know that behind the scenes, we’re hard at work, becoming the best versions of ourselves we can be.
Holding Hope fosters a healthy and collaborative workplace culture. We promote self-care, shorter work weeks, and ample time off to ensure we're present, focused, and ready to help you tackle your biggest challenges.
We frequently receive feedback from current and former clients about how our therapists have helped change their lives. We are honored to be a part of their journey and we hope to be a part of yours, too.
"After months of searching for the right fit with a therapist, I could not have been luckier to meet Brittani. She has patiently guided me through a very difficult, transitional year, and has given me confidence in my ability to navigate the future. Brittani is professional, kind, and always takes an open-minded approach to our sessions. I am so grateful to work with her."
"Dana is non-judgmental, compassionate, empathic, insightful, and even funny, and she has done wonders for our relationship. I never thought I would say this, but I actually ENJOY couples therapy, and I would highly recommend, and have, couples therapy to others, especially if they're lucky enough to have a supportive counselor like Dana."
"I am eternally grateful that I have had the privilege to work with Melissa for the better part of three years. She has helped me grow and change my behavior in ways I thought were impossible due to deep rooted bad habits and some role models that haven't been so positive. I sincerely recommend her guidance and friendship to anyone- but get ready for some deep (and sometimes difficult) introspection!"
"Nicole is kind, warm, and working with her has been a great experience. I started
therapy to strengthen my relationship with my mom. I could feel Nicole's sincerity and patience as we continue to open up about parts of our relationship that are not always easy to acknowledge. After only a few months, I'm feeling more confident in my mom's and my ability to work through difficult issues together, whenever they may come up in the future."
"After a number of external life events introduced a lot of stress into our young relationship, my fiancée and I came to Holding Hope for support. Our therapist, Kate, helped us understand — and disrupt — our negative cycles, challenging us to identify our patterns and prompting us to ask for ourselves how we might change them. Her gift was in making both partners feel understood as individuals, building a foundation of trust from which we were able to do real work on ourselves and our relationship."
"When I first met Mara, I immediately felt comfortable and at ease during what was a very tumultuous time in my life. Over the past few years, she has guided me on a productive and exploratory journey that has deeply affected the way I approach my life on a daily basis. Mara also helped me to fully understand the true value of therapy — in my own life and the lives of others."
"Initially, my husband and I were both a little hesitant to bring up our issues to a “stranger”. But all I can say is we have been so blessed to have found Brittani when we started our search for a therapist. She has made this whole process a comfortable experience; so much so we look forward to our sessions with Brittani. After working with Brittani for over 2 years she has continuously treated us both with respect, kindness, and compassion. I would highly recommend Brittani for any couple seeking advice or support."
"My now-wife and I began seeing Melissa in Fall 2019 after a vacation with friends went poorly. Since then Melissa has been a tremendous help to our relationship – she’s given us the tools to defuse future issues before they happen, she gives us a space in which we’ll both be recognized and treated fairly, and when issues do happen, she helps us walk through them to identify where we got lost. Having this toolkit and knowing we can deal with these issues made both of us more confident in the future success of our relationship together, and also means situations that previously may have led to a fight we’re able to identify and resolve it far more peacefully."
Working with Nicole has given me a greater understanding of myself and my thought process. Our conversations have created clarity around emotions and experiences I've struggled to comprehend. I am proud of the work I’ve done with Nicole and am grateful for her patience, compassion and support.
"I’ve been seeing Mara for nearly 4 years. I’d never gone to a therapist before, and was skeptical and a little nervous at first. I’ve found Mara to be incredibly open and honest, insightful, and above all else- compassionate. She’s helped me to not only confront the challenges I was facing, but also to understand myself better. I look forward to our sessions every week, and now I trust Mara as much as I trust the people closest to me. I couldn’t ask for a better therapist."
