Let's grow together.

The Understory Group was founded around one guiding principle: We are at our best when we grow together.

As therapists, we're not interested in seeing our clients as a list of symptoms, problem behaviors, or diagnoses--we're interested in working with individuals, families, and resilient survivors who have trusted us with their stories.

Our professional development services are not intended to help you check a box on a list of trainings. They're designed to give you the tools you need to feel empowered and confident in providing top-quality care for those in marginalized communities.

A vibrant and thriving ecosystem can only exist when it creates space for diversity, adaptation, and community. Let's create a beautiful understory.
