WELCOME TO

INCLUSIVE RELATIONAL THERAPY

At Inclusive Relational Therapy, we emphasize relationships — between you and your therapist, you and your partner(s), you and your family — as a fruitful site of discovery, understanding, and growth. We commit to empowering individuals, couples, and all relationship structures through tailored and affirming therapy services. Our providers are part of the queer community and have specialized experience working with queer and trans folks, in addition to people who practice polyamory and Ethical Non-Monogamy. Though we work extensively with people who have traditionally been excluded from therapy, including BIPOC folks, we welcome people of all sexualities, genders, and relationship structures.


" This world does not belong to us.

We belong to one another."

MEET THE THERAPISTS

Therapist Maggie Silvaine

maggie cohen silvaine

I'm a queer therapist who specializes in individual therapy with folks 25+. I incorporate my own life experience and my experience as a clinical social worker to work directly with systems of privilege and oppression. I utilize modalities such as Internal Family Systems ("parts work"), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, yoga therapy, and intersectional feminist and queer perspectives.

Therapist Sam Silvaine

sam pranger silvaine

I'm a queer and trans therapist who specializes in couples therapy and other forms of relationship therapy. I pull from modalities such as Emotionally Focused Therapy, Relational Life Therapy, and IFS couples therapy (IFIO). I overlay queer and feminist theories to inform a more expansive and socially conscious view of intimate relationships.

WHAT SETS US APART

PERSONAL & PROFESSIONAL

alignment

Collectively, we have over twenty years of experience as clinicians, and we each bring a depth of knowledge to this practice. However, our experience as clinicians is not all that informs our work. We also take time in our own lives to self-reflect and make changes in order to live more meaningful lives: we are committed to our own personal growth, are consistent attendees of therapy and supervision, and regularly spend time developing our relationships — including our relationship together. We practice what we encourage you to practice. We know that we will make mistakes along the way, but we strive to repair whenever possible, always emphasizing the therapeutic process as a powerful tool for change.
