Esther Boykin - Founder of Group Therapy Associates

When we can show up as our full selves to every area of life, everyone benefits.

  At Group Therapy Associates we work daily to make therapy accessible, innovative, and culturally relevant for all people.

Each therapist here believes in the power of therapy to help you show up more fully for your life, relationships, and communities. Our work is rooted in the belief that knowledge, compassion, and intentional action are the keys to fostering meaningful change – for our clients, our communities, and for us as a company.


Our Mission

GTA believes in the power of therapy to help every person show up more fully for their lives, their relationships, and their communities. Whether on the couch in the office, on a screen through teletherapy, or in a myriad of other fun and innovative ways, Group Therapy Associates is committed to helping you write the next chapter of your life on your own terms.

GTA’s work is built on three core principles…

stay curious, honor emotions, act with intention.

We help people who aren’t sure if therapy was designed for them find an approach to mental health care that honors all the facets of who they are and helps them combine knowledge and self awareness into choices that cultivate a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

GTA is passionate about changing the narrative of mental health through advocacy, creativity, and by actively engaging people who feel left out of the conversation when it comes to what truly makes effective mental health care. GTA believes that therapy should be innovative, evolving, culturally attuned, and highly accessible to all. Every person deserves a safe place to feel seen and loved for the complex and imperfect human they are and it is our mission to help create that.


Our Values

GTA believes in rooting all of our work in this complex definition of love- for yourself, for each other, for our communities.

Candid conversations allow us to speak our truth, acknowledge that others may have a different perspective, and invite each other into collaborative solutions.

GTA honors learning, both the intellectual book-based kind and the emotional intuitive act of seeking answers within.

Optimism is fundamental to growth because it seeks to look as clearly as possible at what’s wrong and what could go wrong as the first step in making a plan to help things go right.

Compassion is an honoring of the humanity within each of us, a commitment to looking at our flawed, messy, imperfect lives with the lens of love and empathy.

Cultural Attunement
GTA is committed to go beyond acceptance to find ways to honor the complex layers of race, ethnicity, culture, gender, religion, sexual orientation, and a myriad other factors that inform and influence how we each show up in the world.

GTA believes in cultivating the emotional awareness, relational skills, and healthy boundaries necessary to make meaningful connections thrive.

Personal Accountability
GTA is committed to holding ourselves accountable for the impact, intentional or unintentional, of our choices.
