Edges creates dynamic, interactive, didactic, practical, experiential learning environments in every service: from the most intimate conversations to the largest organization. Our hope is that in doing so, clients will embody the learning they are open to, and therefore, the changes they make will be more long lasting.
We work with individuals, couples, families, groups, schools and organizations. With everyone, we are mindful of the intersections of multiple identities, and the importance of relational stability, power-equity, and moving away from binary into more fluid ways of thinking and being.

Edges Education offers individual adult and intimate partner therapy for people of all identities. Clinician Beth Wheeler provides a welcoming and inclusive environment for clients actively seeking to better understand themselves, their patterns, and how to improve the quality of their lives- personally, interpersonally, and/or professionally.

As a clinician, Beth is trained in a variety of approaches and uses her heart and her mind in her work. The therapeutic environment is interactive, relational, holistic, and thoughtful. Her areas of specialty include trauma, sexual and gender fluidity, and transracial adoption.

Edges believes in having mirrors and reflections of the people with whom we work, and makes a concerted effort to provide those professionals for the work wherever possible.

Edges also has partnerships with people who identify across many differences, including race, class, sexuality, gender, gender-identity, adoption, ability.
