About Us

Resilio (Latin) verb – Resilience; to rebound; to start over or spring back.

Dragonfly ~ In almost every part of the world, the dragonfly symbolizes transformation, adaptability, and self-realization. It also signifies that change is forthcoming. This can be a personal transformation, a change in a relationship, or a change in an area of your life that can lead to new opportunities.

We chose the name Resilio for our practice, along with our dragonfly logo, as a way to symbolize resilience and the incredible power that each one of us has to overcome adversity. The goal of our practice is to provide supportive psychotherapy and educate patients on mental health. We aim to de-stigmatize mental illness, promote mental health intelligence and resilience in a safe and supportive environment.
