About Northern Roots Therapy Center...

Northern Roots Therapy Center was established to provide an accepting and supportive environment for all individuals in our community. We firmly and passionately believe that every individual who seeks out therapy should be met with kindness and respect, and our staff aims to forge a relationship that feels truly safe. In the therapeutic process, we encourage open conversations between clients and therapists around identity, with attention to how our experiences are informed by our race, gender, sexuality, ability, and other aspects of culture. Our world and the context we live in is ever-changing. With this in mind, we actively seek opportunities to enhance our perspectives and skillsets to meet the needs of a diverse community through in-service trainings and community-centered collaboration. We are proud to welcome individuals of all backgrounds, all genders, and all members of the LGBTQ+ community.
