Payton Somerville, MSW, LGSW

Each and every one of us deserves a space where we can be fully seen, heard, and understood. One where we can begin to move toward a place of healing. As a therapist, it is my mission to create a welcoming and non-judgmental environment where individuals can share, develop insight and grow.

Together, we can navigate life’s changes, in a way that feels authentic to you. I truly believe the therapeutic experience should be as unique as the individual seeking help. Therefore, I take on a client-centered approach, meaning the work we do together is tailored to your distinctive experiences, needs, and goals.

I have experience working with adults from diverse backgrounds in the areas of depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, trauma, grief and loss, stress, life transitions, and relational challenges.
