Our Story

It’s impossible to understand the ripple effect of amazing things that occur in the world when one person reaches mental clarity. We find that incredibly inspiring & it’s why we do what we do.

Hi! Cassie & Brandon here - thanks for visiting our page to read our story. We’re a husband & wife team who started Modern Therapy in 2017 with the mission to make talk therapy more accessible & less intimidating. The truth is that everybody has mental health, but not everybody is paying enough attention it. Our practice operates around some core beliefs.

We believe that:

  • So many problems in life could be solved if we learned how to better control our thoughts & behaviors.

  • The culture surrounding mental health is changing & the field of talk therapy needs to change with it.

  • You deserve to get a call back if you reach out to a therapist.

  • You shouldn’t have to be placed on a 2 month waiting list in order to get an appointment.

  • Everyone should have access to therapy at a fair rate.

We deeply understand the vulnerability it takes to work with a therapist & that is never overlooked or undervalued. At Modern Therapy, your needs will always be put first. Our aim is to create an awkward free space where you feel less like a patient & more like a partner. Our goal is to give you the resources to help you navigate your thoughts, feelings & emotions so you can make progress towards living your best life.
