About us

We share a deep faith in the therapeutic process and an insatiable curiosity about the ways we and our clients experience the world.

Our Mission:

To empower independent psychotherapy professionals to build their own practices by providing them with the space, tools and support they need to effectively help others change their lives.

At Alliance we value:


Our therapies are grounded in contemporary neuroscience and psychodynamic thinking. We engage in lifelong learning to ensure we are effectively addressing the needs of our clients.


We believe relationships are central to the development of the self, and that the therapeutic alliance is the most important tool we have for facilitating growth and change.


We own what we bring to our relationships and commit to providing and receiving feedback about ourselves from our clients and our practice community.


We believe psychotherapy needs to be demystified in order to improve access. We work to ensure our practice is welcoming to a diverse clientele.

What our affiliates are saying:
The most important benefit for me is having a supportive community I can turn to for help with anything from minor questions to major concerns. It really is a grounding, secure base from which I can grow and evolve.
During the pandemic, I was so thankful to have the support of other Affiliates at Alliance to navigate the professional challenges of that time: from the logistics of setting up a virtual session or masking in the office, to witnessing the collective trauma of my clients while experiencing my own grief, to feeling connection and camaraderie while in isolation, I am glad to be a part of this stabilizing community.
"Being a part of this community has given me the best of both worlds. While still maintaining the flexibility and independence of running my own practice I also benefit from being a part of a like-minded professional community and receiving excellent clinical consultation from the group as well as individually."
"As I have started my private practice this past year, having other clinicians available has been invaluable for both practical and clinical matters."
"Alliance played a pivotal role in launching my private practice. I had support from colleagues at every turn, from figuring out business logistics and paneling with insurance companies to building a client caseload and honing my clinical skills. I will be forever grateful for this community’s impact on my professional journey."
"I have grown so much from our consultation group at ALLIANCE. I’ve never been in a consultation group that is so challenging and supportive, that incorporates such a variety of perspectives in a way that helps me hone my own style and understand what comes up for me in the work that we do."

"Our core values – quality, relationships, self-reflection, and service – form the foundation of this community, a secure base from which affiliate clinicians and their patients can explore, develop, and thrive."
