The Therapists

We are a diverse team of passionate and creative individuals who see ourselves as humans first, therapists second. While our specializations and approaches differ, what unites us is our dedication to anti-oppressive/anti-racist practices and our commitment to self-reflection, learning and unlearning. 

We at Work in Progress aim to provide culturally sensitive services to all of our clients. All our therapists strive to work from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist lens. For clients preferring to work with a therapist who has lived experience in the BIPOC and 2SLGBTQ+ communities, we have created a list to help you navigate which therapist might be a good fit for you: Click here.
