LEADERSHIP

A MESSAGE FROM CHELSEY, OUR
FOUNDER & CEO

When I founded Verge, my vision was simple. To create a multi-disciplinary, equitable, and growth-oriented environment that challenges the current landscape of the mental health field. I wanted Verge to be different from the rest— a place where accessibility and affordability did not mean lower quality care. I wanted our clients to have the red carpet experience without the "private-pay only" costs.

 

As Verge continues to grow and expand through locations, service offerings, clients, and clinicians, my mission is to maintain our authenticity. My hope is that Verge will continue to grow as a leader in our community and will pave the way for decreasing the stigma around accessing services, maintaining advocacy for increased mental health services, and being a safe space for clinicians to thrive.

Chelsey O'Donnell, Founder & CEO

In growing Verge, I wanted to create a practice that honors authenticity and provides genuine human-to-human care. I firmly believe in showing up as a fellow human first, and a therapist second. As therapists, we are not superior and are not the model of perfect mental health. We are simply dedicated to self-improvement and are passionate about supporting others on their personal journeys. 

I don’t believe that we ever reach the limit on how much we can grow personally and professionally and that’s why my focus in on the growth and development of our clinical team. We are constantly working on ourselves, learning, deepening our skills, accepting help, and appreciating this human experience. The most amazing part is that we are all in this parallel process together, alongside our clients. By prioritizing good supervision and a positive work environment that values clinicians and nurtures personal development, we can offer the best quality of care to our clients.

A MESSAGE FROM KJ, OUR CCO

A MESSAGE FROM LAUREN, OUR COO

The way in which a company operates can have an immediate impact on client care. From the initial outreach to Verge Therapy, I hope our clients feel valued and see our commitment to their treatment because we know reaching out for help is the hardest part. During your time as a client, my hope is to provide constant evaluation and improvement of our quality of operations, on both the employee and client side, to provide accessible mental health services. 

 

I want Verge Therapy to be a positive workplace where we value the development, growth, and well-being of providers - who in turn are the ones creating our safe, affirming spaces and quality mental health care. It is important to me that both our clients and our employees feel valued, respected, and empowered at Verge, which is why I strive for the best practices and systems to improve our providers’ effectiveness in their careers.   

 

My commitment to Verge Therapy is to create a place where together we are shaping a brighter future where accessible and equitable mental health care can support you as you transform your life into the life you wish to see for yourself.

 

 

Warm regards,

 

Lauren Texter, Chief Operating Officer
