Our Community Is Growing

Promotion for joining FB Group: Beyond the Session with tagline "where a better you unfolds".

Beyond the Session is our newest community initiative where you can make the most out of your therapy experience, even if it's not at Shift! We carefully created this Facebook group so you can feel empowered to do the work that happens outside of each therapy session alongside a community of people who are proudly working on their mental wellness. And hey, if you're not currently in therapy, or maybe contemplating it, this is still a welcoming space for you to make some new connections and get involved in some cool events.


It took us a long time to realize that it wasn’t just a keen focus on the relationship between the therapist and client. What made Shift extra-special was the little things: the warm greetings and laughter in the waiting room; the fact that we didn’t skimp on cheap coffee and tea; the friendships that would come from our community workshops; and the idea that a place where we explore our deepest wounds could also be a place of joy.

We’ve evolved since, but our appreciation of the little things hasn’t. It has shaped our fresh approach to therapy, An approach that prioritizes connection, creativity, and being solution-focused. We want to make mental wellness a routine part of daily life, like going to the gym, seeing your physician, or getting a massage.

Our therapists are people first. In other parts of their lives, they’re artists and athletes, teachers and lifelong students, lovers of travel and advocates for social change. They use their own humility as a bridge to yours. 

Throughout our journey of supporting thousands of clients and growing to include nearly 100 team members from coast-to-coast, we are focused on establishing a new norm for quality and experience of care.
