"We can help you blossum.."
Do you feel like you're alone? Like you're the only person going through pain? Have you ever felt alone in a group of people? As if there is no one like you and no can understand how you feel? This is often the experience of people who are marginalized, whether it's because of their gender, sexuality, race or ethnicity, or religion. The effects of such experiences can lead to stress, psychosomatic pain, and mental illness. Psychotherapy can help you combat these issues and establish a system of support. Your life can be wonderful and manageable with our help.
Welcome to Magnolia Mental Health, a mental health practice and resource center created by Quinn Gee, LPC. As co-founder of another mental health clinic, Healing Hearts Counseling Center, located in Memphis, Quinn wanted to center her professional services around marginalized persons, and thus began Magnolia Mental Health. MMH was created as an extension of Quinn's clinical services and outreach. Quinn and Magnolia Mental Health relocated to Washington, D.C. from Memphis in April 2017. MMH has a comprehensive website that contains a list of all services provided, resources containing current, upcoming, and past media events.
