I'm seeking therapy
Many people today only associate psychiatrists with medication- however, Dr Kuhns actually specializes in psychotherapy! She believes strongly in the healing power of human connection.
She brings an intersectional, womanist lens to her therapeutic practice. She practices from a Health at Every Size perspective, and is an active member of the International Association of Eating Disorder Professionals (IAEDP.) She is committed to providing safe and respectful care to members of the LGBTQ+ community. She is also committed to providing a safe space for clients with various spiritual practices to discuss their spiritual journeys in the setting of the therapy room.
She has completed substantial training in Somatic ExperiencingTM , and often incorporates elements of somatic work into the treatment space.
Please note that her psychotherapy waitlist is generally long, and our team contacts individuals on it as openings arise. Feel free to call our main number to inquire regarding the waitlist.

My dream? Mental health care in its highest form.
Our vision is a practice where the fundamental dignity and beauty of all human bodies is affirmed and embraced fully, and we're honored to be a space where you or your family member can feel safe, known and heard. This kind of mission-driven healthcare isn't always the norm in our world, so in early 2020 Nourish was birthed out of a passion for excellent, trauma informed care as well as a clear understanding that sometimes in life, we must create what we wish for.
The word 'nourish' means 'to provide with the food or other substances necessary for growth, health, and good condition'. All too often, various barriers stand in the way of many people receiving the nourishment they need, whether on a physical level or on an emotional one. Our team helps our clients challenge these internal barriers, empowering those we serve to become better equipped to thrive and seek full health.
As we continue to grow to serve more individuals and families, we commit to always staying centered in the values that guided our inception. We appreciate each individual who allows us the opportunity to participate in their healing journey.
