Hali Riley, LMSW

This is your life. You get to decide what success looks like to you. My approach is warm and enthusiastic providing room for laughter and jokes as well as tears and vulnerability. My style is eclectic, meaning that I tailor techniques and theories best suited to you. I enjoy incorporating your interests in books, television shows, music, movies, and memes to create interactive, personalized therapy.

I am affirming and open-minded, while encouraging you to try new ideas or behaviors that support your healing. In recognizing your personal strengths, I seek to empower and understand you. We work together to enhance your ability to think through problems, discover solutions, and deepen your relationships with others and yourself.

I specialize in working with adults of all ages who experience depression, anxiety, trauma, substance abuse, and relationship problems. I recognize diversity in sexuality as much more than LGBTQ as I practice polyamory-affirmative psychotherapy without unnecessarily making these identities the focus of treatment. I am trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness, and Trauma Informed Care.

Join me in an engaging space to talk about the challenges in your life, at your own pace.
