In Vivo: Cultivating Wellness and Empowerment
In Vivo Center's Genesis and Vision
In Vivo Center emerged as a concept in 2020, born from my own healing journey. I'd searched and searched for providers who looked like me and could understand the intricate tapestry of my multi-layered identities as a Black, queer woman, but the practitioner landscape was
My quest extended to finding therapeutic spaces that not only resonated with my personhood but with my need for integrated, holistic transformation. I saw plenty of one-on-one talk therapy. But where was the therapy that incorporated the art of physical movement? Where was the therapy that called in the spirit? Where was the therapy that healed in and through the community?
It was clear to me that there was a profound need for a warm, inclusive haven that embraced all identities, walks of life, and healing styles. And so, In Vivo was born.
"In vivo" is Latin for "within the living." The name resonates with our commitment to facilitating restoration, healing, and growth within the sacred vessels of our clients--their living bodies, their spiritual houses, and their physical temples. "In vivo" encapsulates the belief that the innate journey of self-discovery resides within each of us. When we tap into our deepest strengths, passions, and capacities, we can transcend our limitations and nurture the qualities that make us unique.
At In Vivo Center, we offer quality integrated therapy and wellness services that honor, empower, and heal clients across a spectrum of identities. We believe in creating a space where everyone's journey is respected and celebrated, where the process of healing is rooted in authenticity and empowerment.
