Meet Our Volunteer Practitioners

Hope Capra CCEP, LCSW

Hi. I’m looking forward to meeting you.
In my adult life I have called myself a friend, a spouse, a parent, a lawyer, a social worker, an LCSW, a Qi gong practitioner and a body-based psychotherapist. I work with words, with energy, with the body—and with the spirit—whatever it is you need to feel calmer, clearer and more present with yourself and your situation. What I offer is an open, curious, non-judgmental space to explore and let down and put down some of what you may be carrying right now.
