Embrace your humanness.

Dr. Amanda Lomanov, Founder of IGTLA

Decipher your unconscious. Break patterns. Develop emotional literacy. Have more satisfying relationships. Accept without judgment. Grieve and let go of what you have outgrown.

Like a prism refracting light, therapy opens a portal to the pieces of yourself that you may not have known were there.

Our treatment team knows that the relationships they form with you are unique, bidirectional, and transformative. We understand that in order to approach yourself with curiosity rather than judgment, we need to create a safe container where you can let go of toxic shame and self-attack and embrace all parts of you, even the ones that you don't like. Relational therapy is the theoretical framework that we use to make sense of the unconscious patterns we will replicate and explore together. 

If you are ready to deepen your connection with yourself, recontextualize your history, and find compassion for all of your parts, book your free introductory consultation with us now.


We all make choices every day that bring us closer to joy or pain. We are often unaware of all the forces at play in our decision-making (e.g., instinct, emotion, logic, attachment style, unhealed wounds, etc.). Without help, we can feel alone in figuring out major life choices and we may act from a place of fear rather than a place of strength and courage.

Therapy is a space to get to know all parts of ourselves, including those veiled by the unconscious, with the guidance of a trained professional, to empower you in creating a life with intention.

Our mission is to support clients in connecting to their intuition and innate wisdom. To us, that usually means awakening to the unconscious thoughts and feelings that guide our decisions and thematically organize our lives and relationships. With this knowledge, we can begin to let go of unsatisfying automatic patterns and venture to design a life that nourishes us, allowing ourselves to be guided not by fear or circumstance, but by our intuitive sense of what we desire.

Your relationship with your therapist can also be a model for your relationships outside of therapy. Together we can explore how to manage conflict effectively, set healthy boundaries, and talk about things that make us uncomfortable. It’s our goal to help you understand what feels good to you in relationships and what doesn’t.

Our therapists are affirming of all identities, genders, and orientations. We are committed to helping you find safety within yourself so that you can enter any space with bravery and strength. Give us a call today to see how we can help you meet your therapy goals.


While each of our clinicians has their own unique areas of focus and style, our team is united in using integrative treatment approaches tailored to you, combining open-ended exploratory approaches with more structured skills-based techniques to meet you wherever you need us to. Our commitment to relationship-building, evidence-based treatment, and trauma-informed techniques makes us the best suited to meeting you at your growth edges, whether we are your first or fifteenth experience with psychotherapy.

Anxiety disorders happen when we underestimate our own strengths and overestimate the threats in our environment. Sometimes we need to build up your skills and uncover your strength, and sometimes we need to deconstruct the stories of what you fear most. Whichever path we take together, we can find ways to help you change your relationship to fear and stress.

Most of our clients have experienced some form of depression, 'going through the motions,' or disinterest in things they used to care about. They often feel a sense of 'worthlessness' or low self-esteem and feel that they don't belong. We believe depression is often anger turned against the self when we are really unconsciously experiencing anger about the world, significant others, or systems of oppression. We work with you to uncover the source and feel what you need to feel to move on.

The simplest definition of 'trauma' is any event that psychologically overwhelms you, which as a result leads to frequently misunderstood responses in the body. This may include feeling like you must always be on guard and avoidance of things (often feelings) that are difficult. Trauma can make you feel isolated and powerless over your nervous system, actions, and thoughts. We can help you learn the language of your body and guide you to work with rather than against your emotions to rebuild a sense of internal safety and connection.

The relationship you have with your therapist is what is most healing about this whole process. You should feel seen enough to feel safe, and safe enough to allow your full self to be seen.

If that resonates with you, we invite you to schedule a phone consultation to see if we can start to build some of that safety together. Let's talk about what has and hasn't worked for you in previous treatment settings and help you make conscious choices about our therapeutic relationship. Let's talk about how we can meet your goals together.
