Welcome to Water & Stone!

As the founding director, I (Emery) am looking forward to speaking with you so we can find the best option in offering you support during this time in your life. We specialize in working with women, the lgbtqia+ community, trauma, anxiety, and grief just to mention a few. I personally speak with you during your initial complimentary phone call, so we can discuss what you are looking for and the questions you might have as we find a way to take a step forward that feels confortable to you.

We are a group practice that focuses on a mindfulness based, contemplative approach when it comes to supporting your mental health and wellness. Each professional therapist is adept in both traditional talk therapy and an area of creative arts therapy, so you have options to choose from as we find the right therapist for you.

One of my main goals at Water & Stone is to ensure you are with the person who can best help you with an approach that feels good and supportive. You need to have a good connection with your therapist to get the most out of this experience, so we are flexible and will work with you to help make sure you have the right fit.

About

What services does your practice offer?

As a group practice, Water & Stone offers individual, couples, family, and group sessions. We cater to all ages with therapists who specialize in working with young children, teens, adults, and older adults. Currently, we are online and plan on offering in-person sessions again in the near future for those interested. To ensure everyone's comfort, you will always have the option to meet online with your therapist.

What are your practice's specialties?

The therapists at Water & Stone each have their own specialties, so we can meet with people dealing with challenges or concerns in a variety of areas. Some of the particular areas of focus include trauma, marginalization, anxiety, life transitions, multiculturalism, microaggressions, lgbtqia+ experiences, self-esteem, identity, and grief/loss.

Why should I choose your practice?

Water & Stone is unique in it's contemplative approach to therapy. Our approach fits well with those who are working on more amorphous emotions or long term experiences such as trauma, grief, or anxiety as well as those dealing with more concrete issues that center on specific events or challenges in life. We bring tools and approaches into session that focus on raising self-awareness, building tools for the client to use throughout their week, and promoting each person reaching their full potential.

How does payment work at your practice?

During your initial phone call with Emery you will be able to discuss the cost of sessions and have your questions answered. We offer a sliding scale for individual and couple's sessions ($125-225) depending on circumstance and groups ($60) are also a good option for finding quality support on a budget.
