Our Approach

Custom, Inclusive, Evidenced Based Therapy

CoTenacious Therapy is a therapy practice dedicated to fostering the emotional and mental enrichment and development of clients of all ages. We are located in Maryland - virtually - and offer individual, couple, polycule, family, and group therapy. We strive to be inclusive in our practice and our work.

For some, seeking therapy happens at a vulnerable time in life. CoTenacious Therapy & Our Therapists are dedicated to creating a safe environment that promotes and values respect, and holds an appreciation for diversity & inclusion. We are a social justice oriented practice and with that comes self-disclosure. We are happy to discuss our positions on a variety of issues and we know that politics cannot be removed from therapy in the same way they cannot be removed from life. Conversations about power, privilege, and lived experiences are a necessary part of therapy so that our clients know they are safe with us. 

Our clients and therapists are diverse in age, gender identity, gender expression, sex, sexual orientation, relationship orientation, relationship structures, family structures, marital status, parental status, race, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, political affiliations, religious ideals, spiritual orientations, socioeconomic status, physical and cognitive ability(ies), life experiences and perspectives.

A Note from The Founders


 Jessica and Lexa created this practice based on a combined 28 years experience in the mental health field. As longtime friends, "framily" if you will, starting a practice together has allowed us to extend our relationship in to our business and use it to ground us.

 We want to create a practice that is integrated with the community, safe for its therapists and clients,​ transparent in all regards, and full of friendship and support. We aspire to create a clinical home for other like-minded therapists so they can work a reasonable amount, have w-2 employment in private practice, avoid burnout, and earn a great living. We strive to ensure all of our clinicians are trained to provide optimal care.

Thank you for going on this journey with us! Feel free to email us with any questions, concerns, or feedback!

We so look forward to working with you!

Lexa and Jessica
