Hello my name is Aisha Cunningham, I am a dedicated and compassionate Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with a specialization in trauma, depression, anxiety, and stress. I create a special and nurturing environment for clients. With 10 years of experience in the field, I have developed a deep understanding of the complex nature of these mental health challenges and I am committed to helping individuals overcome their struggles and find healing. As a trauma informed care therapist, I recognize the profound impact that traumatic experiences can have on an individual's overall well-being. Through holistic therapeutic techniques or evidence-based practices, I provide a non-judgmental, special and nurturing space for clients to explore their trauma, process their emotions, and develop effective coping strategies. I also work with women of color that may need a space to process their day-to-day life, work stress, personal life without feeling stressed, judged and overwhelmed. With a compassionate and non-judgmental approach, I empower clients to regain control over their lives and move towards a path of resilience and recovery.

Hi there, I'm Dr. Christina. Do you have a hard time regulating your emotions? Are you struggling to find meaning and value in life? Is it hard to be kind to yourself? How are your relationships with others?

We'll use a whole self approach, addressing the needs of your mind, body and spirit. I also integrate mindfulness, yoga and art to help you develop a stronger relationship with yourself. Whether you're dealing with overwhelm, relationship issues or cycles of anxiety and depression, I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

The pressures of the modern world seem never ending, particularly when you deal with an untreated or difficult to treat mental health or substance use issue. I specialize in certain mental health diagnoses including personality disorders, postpartum issues, depression/anxiety, self harm/suicidal ideation. I am prepared to assist you in offering helpful coping strategies, understanding the psychology behind your experiences/symptoms, processing feelings and thoughts, and gaining better traction on your life. My specialty is in mental health and substance use (dual diagnosis). I am DBT certified. I have worked with individuals impacted by cycles of trauma, violence, and substances in various settings including psychiatric hospitals, county jail, intensive outpatient programs, and outpatient clinics. My mission? Help people THRIVE and be SEEN/HEARD despite these circumstances. I understand that both making sense of the issue(s) at hand and reaching out is incredibly anxiety producing. What I provide is a safe and warm space where you can explore your needs, current feelings, history, and goals. You have the power to stop fighting what is out of your control, and harness your power to control what is just within your grasp.

Do you suffer from constant anxiety and or panic attacks? Do you have a history of loss, difficult relationships and other traumatic experiences that hurt when you think about them today? Well, you are not alone. Seeking counseling can be an anxious time for many people, yet I believe it can be the start of a positive and productive experience. I believe joining with my clients to create a therapy experience tailored to their individual needs is important. The therapy sessions will be a safe place to gain new skills to help you live a more prosperous and fulfilling life. I offer online therapy which provides convenience, privacy and affordability all in one place. There are so many different types of situations or experiences that can create a need for therapy. I have experience successfully helping people feel less depressed or anxious, build their parenting skills with strong-willed children, get through difficult life changes, improve their relationship with their partner or friends, and create a less stressful environment for themselves. I am trained in a few research-based treatments for trauma and parenting. I am a Faith Based Christian Therapist. I received my Bachelor's in Social Work from Morgan State University in Baltimore, Maryland and my Master's in Social Work from Stanislaus State in Turlock, California where I served 5 years as a Professor in the MSW Department teaching on The Effects of Childhood Trauma.

Do you feel misunderstood by parents or family? Do you just want to be heard? I work with adolescents and adults who struggle in a number of areas. These include depression, anxiety, self-harm, eating disorders, substance abuse, personality disorders, recovery from physical/emotional abuse and the processing of grief. More importantly, I am accessible to those who simply need someone to talk to during a difficult time or if you are feeling like there is really no one else in your life who listens. My hope for any of my clients is they feel validated and heard during each and every session. I also hope to empower my clients to be able to set boundaries when needed, believe in who they are and what they can achieve and feel hopeful about their future and healing from their past.

You're burnt out. You want to let go of the past, the perfectionism, the people-pleasing. You want freedom from toxic relationships, from energy & expectations that no longer serve you. You want to enjoy your life in the here and now but struggle under the weight of anxiety & familial pressure. If this resonates it’s likely you experienced dysfunctional or even abusive family dynamics growing up and are still in the process of healing. You deserve to live a life free from the burden of trauma--to heal, build healthy relationships, break generational patterns, improve self-esteem, establish clear boundaries, & love the life you've built. I help adults with adolescent and childhood trauma heal emotional wounds and process the past to find peace in the present. I am egalitarian, warm, and collaborative in my approach. My practice is LGBTQIA+ affirming. I create safe, supportive, and affirming space to process, vent, build coping skills, and improve wellbeing. Authenticity, compassion, and connection shape my approach to care. As someone who has worked through my own traumatic experiences and mental health challenges, I know safe space is key and that it is created through authentic and compassionate human relationships. If this approach feels right to you, I encourage you to book an intake with me.

Building self-awareness is often a hard place to start. I meet my patients where they are in their journey and support the process. Sometimes taking the first step to explore psychotherapy is confusing. Ask questions so you can find a therapist who is the right fit for you. My approach meets people where they are presently, to determine where they want to be in the future. I like to get to know my new patients to determine their needs in treatment.

My clinical approach is aligned with "Radical Healing Theory," which encompasses a holistic approach to healing beyond physical health and addresses the underlying causes of suffering and inequality. It acknowledges the interconnectedness of various social, economic, political, and environmental systems and their impact on individual and collective well-being. Radical healing is rooted in critical theory and social justice frameworks. It challenges traditional notions of health and healing by centering marginalized voices and experiences. It seeks to dismantle oppressive structures and promote equity, justice, and liberation.

Hi, I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist based in Northern California. I have been providing mental health services and interventions for the past 6years. Prior to that I was providing addiction counseling. My approach is genuine and authentic, warm and welcoming. I use motivational interviewing to move you along. To assist you in the transformative process. Together we will unpack what has been pushed down for years, change your perspective, focusing on core values and true self. I have work 4 years in crisis intervention, stabilization and helping you develop a plan to move forward with your life. Do you feel overwhelmed and exhausted by the challenges life throws your way? Life has shown up and you might feel depressed, anxious, lonely or angry. You could be struggling in your relationships. Do you have unresolved grief, trauma or shame? Do you allow your emotions to get the best of you? You have found the right place. You have taken the first step towards self-healing and transformation. Seeking therapy can be a scary process. It's difficult to be vulnerable with a stranger. I believe clients should be treated with compassion, dignity and respect. I encourage you to reach out and begin the healing process. A lot of issues we struggle with start with the relationship we have with our selves. When we change ourselves, our issues tend to resolve as well. I provide a safe, caring and nonjudgmental environment and use evidence-based therapies to help you meet your goals.

Change at any stage in life can cause a whirlwind of emotions—such as excitement, joy, relief and hope; but also worry, fear, concern and uncertainty. The change can be a new job, a new school, a new relationship, a new city, a new identity or a new experience. Therapy is a place that can help you navigate these changes—including the unanticipated stressors, challenges and adversities that you may experience along the way. Therapy is an opportunity that will empower you and mobilize you to reach your goals, dreams and aspirations; and lead you on a path towards a purposeful and meaningful life. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and I provide services in English or Spanish. My goal is to help you identify your strengths, goals and abilities—and teach you the skills that you need to adjust to the unforeseeable circumstances that life may bring to you. For the last 6 years, I have served multicultural and diverse populations, of all ages, in a variety of settings—including K-12 institutions, forensic mental health, integrated health, inpatient psychiatric care and hospital emergency care. My leadership style is deeply rooted on that values and ethics of the social work practice; and I intend to provide you with a safe, supportive, welcoming and nurturing environment.
