About me

Hi! I'm Dakota.

How can I help you today? 

I’m passionate about helping adults and adolescents heal from the pain of their past and grow into lives that bring them joy and fulfillment. You may be dealing with chronic pain, depression, trauma, or just feel lost or stuck. Let’s work together to figure out what brings you meaning, joy, and peace to your life.


Dakota Lawrence

Lead Therapist



I believe in whole-body, whole-person care and that counseling is just one piece of the path towards wellness. Healing is not always easy, but you don’t have to do it alone. I use mindfulness-based, body-based, and cognitive behavioral tools to treat chronic pain, trauma, depression, anxiety, and more.


Psychotherapy is a collaborative experiment. I meet my clients where they are at and together we devise a solution that works for you. My primary orientation is to feedback informed treatment. If we're not seeing the results we hoped for, we change course. I will meet you where you’re at and walk with you towards where you want to be!

What is Psychotherapy? 

More than just a "paid best friend".

Therapy is about learning new ways to improve our relationship with ourselves, other people, and the world around us.

Our therapists work hard to create an environment of safety and trust so that you can work through difficulties of the past or present while learning the tools you'll need to succeed in the future.


We are trained in a variety of approaches including CBT, DBT, EMDR, and mindfulness-based interventions. We work together as a cohesive team to treat a wide variety of mental health challenges including depression, anxiety, trauma, addiction, and more. Our providers will collaborate with you to create a treatment approach that best fits your needs.
