Our Mission 

Philosophy

Head & Heart Therapy was founded in 2018 by Sarah Dobey, and since then, it has grown to include multiple clinical therapists, students, and administrative staff. Our skilled staff have experience working with many diverse populations who have been historically underserved in the mental health field such as people of color, transgender and nonbinary individuals, and those who are facing economic barriers. Additionally, Head & Heart uses a wide range of modalities to meet people where they are at instead of taking a one-size-fits-all stance on mental health.

 

We strive to provide quality and culturally responsive mental health and addiction services, in addition to offering training and supervision to mental health professionals. Head & Head maintains services rooted in respect, empowerment, and healing. 

  • We believe everyone has the right to access mental health care. 

  • We acknowledge that understanding the impact of both trauma and addiction, is crucial to effective service delivery. 

  • Head & Heart Therapy has integrated SAMHSA’s Trauma Informed Approach, integrating the four R’s: realizing the widespread impact of trauma and understanding the potential paths for recovery; recognizing the signs and symptoms of trauma in clients, families, staff, and others involved with the system: and responding by fully integrating knowledge about trauma into policies, procedures, and practices, and seeks to actively resist re-traumatization.
