While it is difficult to face the idea of change, it is a necessary part of life. We think about change when we’re in crisis, and when we’re stuck in a place we don’t want to stay in. Whether you’re in crisis or stuck, the therapists at Personal Evolution Psychotherapy (PEP) can help. We provide effective, non-judgmental therapy for an affordable price. We’re safe for all people in these difficult times.

Don’t hesitate to get help because you’re afraid of being judged or because you’re scared. We provide comprehensive DBT (Dialectical Behavior Therapy) and can help with anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, communication issues, relationship issues and other emotional issues. We specialize in working with the LGBTQ community and are specifically trained and competent to provide Gender Therapy to people who identify as transgender, including transmen, transwomen, genderqueer, bigender, non-binary, gender non-conforming, questioning, or gender fluid people.¬†While we¬†specialize in working with the LGBTQ community, the trans community, and with the kink and poly communities, these are not the only communities that we serve. PEP therapists work with heterosexual (straight) and cisgender (not experiencing gender identity issues) people also (adults, teens, families and couples), and provide non-judgmental and effective therapy to all.

If you’re having a hard time communicating effectively with a partner or spouse, or with family or co-workers, we can help. If you’re in a relationship that you value and want to keep, but don’t know how, we can help. If you have a hard time identifying and experiencing your emotions, and frequently use ineffective behaviors such as self-harm, drugs/alcohol, impulsive shopping or gambling, or sex to block them out, we can help. If you find yourself apologizing frequently for these behaviors that you’d like to stop, we can help. If you want to be a better you, we can help by decreasing the behaviors that cause you problems in your life.

We want to make it as easy as possible for individuals (adults and teens), couples and families to find time to schedule an appointment. Personal Evolution Psychotherapy offers appointments 7 days a week, with the latest appointment of the day being 9:45pm.
