Dr. Jacquelyn Gilles, Licensed Psychologist
Dr. Gilles knows therapy is a challenging and vulnerable process and works to create a space that is both safe and reflective of the reverence she holds for her clients and the work. She is strongly committed to understanding, non-judgment, respect, empowerment, and celebration of individual differences and struggles. Dr. Gilles has been described as a "calming presence" and as someone who has a "strong ability to take others' perspectives." Perhaps this is why Couples Therapy is a favorite for Dr. Gilles.

Dr. Barbara Beauchamp, Psy.D., Licensed Psychologist
Barbara Beauchamp believes there are times when a person simply needs a sanctuary in which one can focus on what is working and not working in life. Therapy is an ideal place for this type of reflection. Therapy is also an active process that requires considerable patience, empathy, and a willingness to explore those parts of ourselves that may need some attention if not change. Dr. Beauchamp recognizes that you are your own best expert, and she respectfully creates a space in which you are guided toward a more healthy and peaceful way of being.

Colgan Tyler, M.S.W., Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Mr. Colgan Tyler's psychotherapy treatment specializes work with young males, adult men and women and families in crisis. Using an eclectic approach, he gives the client the space and support to tell their own story, guides and witnesses them in self-discovery, and collaborates to change elements within their realm of control. Mr. Tyler is committed to the idea that young males and men, like all human beings, need to be recognized and valued as creative, powerful, and sensitive individuals within their social contexts. An important part of mental health treatment is being seen by and building a relationship with a present, empathetic and trained professional.

Tina Furness-Ullrich, Psy.D., Licensed Psychologist (Temporary)
Dr. Furness-Ullrich's clinical interest primarily focuses on psychoanalytically informed psychotherapy. This approach to therapy is process-oriented where you work to acknowledge and build capacity to ‘know thyself’ as well as mediate, recognize, and celebrate your essential desires regarding yourself as an individual and yourself in relationships. She believes there are many factors (developmental, biological, cultural, and environmental) that create the psychological landscape from which an individual may thrive and/or struggle as they journey to know themselves.
