Founder Danielle Murphy began the practice based on a decade of experience in embodied approaches to trauma recovery. Under Danielle's supervision and guidance, Pallavi Ankolekar is passionate about supporting people and communities of color through a skills-based and trauma-informed lens.
Pallavi is a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) practitioner, and uses this powerful combination of evidence-based approaches to guide people through processing trauma, strengthening their sense of inner calm and resilience, and feeling more grounded in daily life. Pallavi brings to the practice a background in school social work and community mental health, and is particularly skilled in supporting adults, especially Millennials, including those who are struggling with mood and anxiety disorders, life transitions, the first generation immigrant experience, and identity exploration.
Danielle and Pallavi specialize in working with adult and adolescent individuals in a collaborative manner to overcome issues that are causing them distress.
They believe that through examination of the past and present, individuals are able to better understand patterns, thoughts, and behaviors that are the root of their distress.
Danielle’s training and practice are rooted in body-based techniques that also work to access the increased healing and knowledge available to us, through better understanding our physiological experience.
Pallavi is experienced in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). At the heart of their work, they believe that people can heal no matter what hardships they have experienced!
Regardless of treatment style, the relationship between therapist and client is paramount to successful therapy. Danielle & Pallavi work to create a therapeutic environment that is welcoming, safe, and encouraging.
They practice with warmth, interaction, and honesty. Clients that have worked with them have stated that they have felt comfortable, safely challenged, and found great value in the therapy process.
