About Us

The 214 Story

We met over a decade ago while in grad school and reconnected again in 2010 through a shared mentor. Through that shared mentorship experience a dream began to form in each of us, to one day pay it forward.


As time went on and our friendship grew, we discovered this was a shared vision: to work in community and collaboration with other therapists and to provide a safe place to launch for therapists new to private practice. From there, 214 Counseling Group’s value statement was born. “A place to grow a thriving practice.”


We recognized each of us brought a unique set of skills and experiences to the table such as: non-profit residential treatment, dual-diagnosis outpatient treatment, behavioral health assessments, program development, consulting as well as private practice development. Plus, we really enjoy working with each other.


The name of 214 Counseling Group was first conceived over lunch. It initially served as a placeholder while we researched naming options for our new practice. Over time, all three partners came to love and appreciate 214’s duality of both reflecting the area code of the community we serve and each partner’s Enneagram type. 2-1-4
