How we started
Anam Cara, which in Gaelic means “Friend of the Soul,” is not only the name of our center but is a beacon that guides and inspires us. It is based on the notion that the deepest parts of ourselves have an inherent calling to both be known and to grow. Our practitioners seek to be true allies and guides as we align ourselves with your soul’s unique unfolding.
In 2006 a group of practitioners came together to envision a communal home for various forms of therapeutic work. The goal was to create a unified space that offered clients a feeling of community and support through different approaches to inner work and development. Together we created a center with a warm, home-like feel that truly embodies who we are and the work that we do. We consider it our second home as it is a blend of the personal and professional within us.
A safe place to heal & explore
Drawing from a diverse range of backgrounds and training, each of us integrates the connection between body, mind, and spirit into our work. We recognize that the individual experience is affected by the larger context in which a person lives, and are mindful of the connection between inner healing and social justice.
Our practices incorporate a variety of healing modalities including body-centered somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness-based therapy, coaching, bodywork, and experiential integration work. Over the last decade our vision has manifested into a thriving holistic center dedicated to healing and inner work. We began as 5 and have since grown to include ten practitioners.
Anam Cara — more than a location, is as a place that embodies the essence of our work — a place where we welcome the richness, complexity, diversity and beauty of life. Our goal was to create an environment that would help awaken and support the inherent freedom and possibility within each of us. We hope for all to feel this intention as you pass through our doors.
